Recently, after encountering some really bizarre interactions in Walmart & an apartment parking lot, Brink & myself realized we had been given a gift. We discovered that we were able to take the strange, seemingly inexplicable moments in life, and express and explain the deeper meanings behind them. We were able to interpret weird life happenings.

So we have decided to take that show on the road on a regular basis on the GooseRadio Podcast.

This week, Brink tackles what it means that I encountered a young lady at a stoplight who was navigating her vehicle with the use of her feet as steering mechanisms.

Then we turn to the listener mailbag. A listening friend writes to ask how he’s to understand the behavior of his co-worker and how he can move forward toward befriending that individual and enriching both their lives. Brink & I offer wisdom.

We would also be more than happy to explain your weird life happening when you email us at goose@gooseradio.com.


Goodbye Jay

Carney Obama Hug

What with the VA Scandal and the most bizarre prisoner swap story in recent memory, a lot of things have been competing for our newsie attention. But we didn’t want to allow too much time to pass since Jay Carney’s announcement that he was leaving his post as White House spin doctor last week. Brink & myself wanted to say a proper farewell.

Man. When you think about this guy. He has said some stuff that nobody else would have had the guts to say — this side of Hillary Clinton. And he’s said those things with such extraordinary conviction! We reflect on this odd intersection traits.

Was he an effective press secretary? How was he able to muster so much bluster in the face of so many inconvenient facts?!

These questions and many more are answered by Brink Brickly & myself on this latest foray into the sceptered realm of Entertainment, Information & a General Sense of Well Being that is the GooseRadio Podcast.


Old Eddie Moscow, after spending some quality time in the Russian heartlands, emerged this week to chat with venerable NBC anchor Brian Williams.

He wanted people to know that he meant well, and really was quite the patriot looking out for all of us by giving all that sensitive information to the Red Chinese and basically Red, basically Soviets. Also — he would like us to know that he was really sort of a James-Bond-esque spy character who didn’t just hang out with computers.

Brink offers some compelling recommendations for pastimes that Ed can now take up when he’s not kicking it with Vlad. I express once more my amazement that Eddie is still with us here on earth. We discuss the reasons why the CIA hasn’t pulled the proverbial plug, and somehow end up discussing Russian female tennis stars.

It’s a trek to the land of the star & the sickle on this very latest GooseRadio Podcast. Let us go forward together unto Entertainment, Information & a General Sense of Well Being!

How Can It Bee?

National Spelling Bee

How can one even begin to describe the glory of the recent National Spelling Bee? The hopes… the dreams… the unceasingly monotone voice of the guy reading the awe inspiring words? Wow!

Brink & myself celebrate these wonders. What’s up with that tie? Is it really a sport? How are hot dogs involved? What was the deal with that kid who declared he knew the correct spelling and then didn’t?!

Spelling is hard. But missing this very latest GooseRadio Podcast would be harder to explain to your children and grandchildren. Let us go forth together unto Entertainment, Information & a General Sense of Well Being.

Occupy Bicyclist

The blessed return of sunshine means that – in the formerly frigid climes – we may now seek transport in vehicles that don’t heat us while they mobilize us. This means that many of you are mounting up on your bikes and traversing the roadways & byways.

Brink Brickly being an avid bicyclist himself (though it’s a complex relationship as you’ll soon discover), we discuss the various life scenarios which have led us to the bicycle – which for Brink is a tale that involves large piles of dirt, Texas, and wanting to be like his brothers.

Then we talk about the eternal strife between cyclists and motorists and things get emotionally charged.

Celebrate summer with the latest GooseRadio Podcast! It’s Entertainment, Information & a General Sense of Well Being on two wheels.

Angry girls

Your Facebook newsfeed has been ransacked by it. In a flash of words, it’s become the hot button topic on the radio and in the lunch room workplace. It is the viral blog post.

How can an aspiring blogger be certain to compose such a feat? How can you drive the conversation of the world for a day?

On this special edition of GooseRadio, we bring you the answers. They are angsty, they are frustrating, but here they are.

Brink reveals the three keys to composing a viral blog. Then I try to solve the world’s discussion problems on the internet. Why can’t we speak to each other without eviscerating each other and everything we stand for?! Brink doesn’t seem positive that this can be solved on the podcast.

Finally, we end up talking about parliamentary procedure and confirm the fact that I’m a nerd.

You can read the rules in totality here on Brink’s blog site (where he claims another name?!).

Recently a stranger in a parking lot called me ‘George’ & congratulated me on wearing a nice suit. Neither of those things being true, i was confused.

Meanwhile, Brink had an odd experience of late that involved koolaid & Walmart. He was left wondering what meaning he could draw from that strange event.

With these questions marinating in our minds, we seek each others’ wisdom on what these events could mean.

The… unique answers… are on this very latest edition of the GooseRadio Podcast. Prepare yourself mentally and emotionally for an influx of Entertainment, Information & a General Sense of Well Being!

To find the deeper meaning of the strange happenings in your life, send a note to goosenissley@gmail.com with your name & story. We might just tackle it on our next episode.


Perhaps the buzz has reached your ears. The mammoth creature Godzilla is back in theaters once again. Only this time… with a twist worth M Night Shyamalan.

I have taken my fowl self to the cineplex & viewed this film for you, and offer my humble takeaways from Godzilla in an effort to guide your movie selections toward a more perfect union of Entertainment, Information & General Sense of Well Being.

What is this big twist? Is there a story here you can care about even if you don’t care so much about large sea / land / air monsters? There’s another Olsen sister?!

Answers below on this very latest edition of the audio supernova that is & will continue to be reasonably anticipated to be… the GooseRadio Podcast…


The electoral landscape continues to shape up beautifully for the GOP in advance of the mid-term elections. Brink Brickly and myself speak to the persistent displeasure ObamaCare inflicts on the Democrat party far and wide. Yet in the midst of the positivity, there continue to exist fissures on the right between ‘the establishment’ and ‘the grassroots’.

We point to the status of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his bid for re-election in the reliably red state of Kentucky. Polls show him besting his primary challenger easily, but having a much rougher road in the general election. Brink ticks off some of unpleasantries to befall the Senator. Then we really get in to the heart of the matter.

Brink makes the case for Conservative purity as the ideal, while I embrace my squishy, rhino self & defend ‘the machine’.

Stuff gets real… on the very latest GooseRadio Podcast…

Noah Feature

You’ve beheld the hubbub! You’ve seen the arguments on FB & Twitter! Now, join us for some Entertainment, Information & a General Sense of Well Being as we give the GooseRadio Podcast treatment to Paramount’s ‘Noah’.

While a lot of the discussion in the faith community has centered on the biblical tale’s relationship to the new film, the Brink-ster & I come at it more from a question of just whether or nay we enjoyed the film and the decidedly original story it weaved after having seen it this week.

Was the redemption & hope in the midst of tragedy still there? Did the ideological weavings of the director Mr. Aronofsky make their impact known? Were the acting contributions of Crowe, Connelly, Watson & Hopkins a veritable flood of grandeur?! Answers await.

Along the way we manage to once again celebrate the glories of electric reclining, leather theater seating; discuss the brick hurling scene from Home Alone 2; and name check Jennifer Lawrence.
