Considering ‘Mitt’

Netflix Mitt Poster

Entertainment, Information & a General Sense of Well Being makes its way to Netflix’s recently released documentary ‘Mitt’. This is no ordinary flick – a filmmaker found himself with intimate access to the Romney family for seven years & two presidential runs. So what did he find? What kind of cat was Mitt Romney really?

Brink Brickly comes alongside once more as we tackle the humanizing portrayal offered in the movie. This is the guy that the Romney campaign was simply never able to get across to the whole country – someone with character, a sense of humor, and humility. We grappled with the treatment the family and the man received and wonder why anyone would want to actually put themselves & their family through the brutality required to become President.

Manifold insights and unmitigated mirth await you in the latest GooseRadio Podcast…


It’s Entertainment, Information & a General Sense of Well Being unleashed on the Winter Games people!

I declare my unsubstantiated belief that Vladimir Putin attempted to strike at the heart of America by giving Bob Costas pink eye. Brink fires back his belief that Bob is a liberal hooligan.

We delve into women’s skiing & the texture of Russian snow… as well a discussion of the general difficulty of doing athletic things on snow and ice.

Then a regular Minnesotan called Joe comes alongside to share his depth of feeling on the results of the recent US / Russia hockey match up.

How do you take your Olympics? With a side of mirth perhaps?! The latest GooseRadio Podcast lies below…

One of the world’s most inexplicable phenomenons – the rampant popularity of Justin Bieber – has taken some legal hits in recent weeks. Brink & myself discuss the Bieb’s latest legal headaches and even the potential disaffection of his hordes of ‘beliebers’.

Learn how Rob Ford, the mayor of Toronto came to defend the young pop star as well as how Britney Spears & twinkies are brought to bear in the discussion as well.

It’s another rollicking trek toward Entertainment, Information & a General Sense of Well Being…

Scenes from Walmart

Wal Mart

It’s time to recognize one of America’s true glories – Walmart.

Brink recently beheld some remarkable hair care methods & vehicles there, tales which he shares. I attempt to put into words what Walmart means to us all. In the end, we paint a picture of our appreciation for what Sam Walton has given us all. We also manage to make fun of Democrats.

It’s all in a days work on the latest GooseRadio podcast…

On Wisconsin!

Wisconsin road sign

Less than two years ago, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was embroiled in a hard fought recall election just to keep his job. Beset by powerful unions and outside progressive advocacy groups, it looked like the bold Gov might have his proverbial GOOSE cooked.

But he won that contest, and has continued applying reasonable free market wizardry to the ills that face his state. For his good work, just days ago he was able to announce a nearly 1 billion dollar budget surplus.

Brink & myself celebrate the governor’s deeds, the glories of vodoo economics, and talk whether or nay it would be possible for Governor Walker and the noble Congressman Paul Ryan to BOTH make a run in 2016. Mirth ensues below…

Peyton Vs. The Babe

As this week’s Super Bowl became the most watched tv event in the history of the American eyeball, one cannot deny the supremacy of the NFL in our sporting life. Yet I yearn for the days of yore & a simpler time of wooden sticks flailing at balls hurled through the air… of Abner Doubleday inventing a sport for Americans to play (which apparently never happened… thanks a lot Ken Burns…).

So I decided to bring alongside my pal Brink Brickly, a die hard football fanatic, and attempt to convince him that America in 2014 needs more baseball. We speak of the relative speed & action of the games. Their histories and generated feelings are examined. Barack Obama and James Earl Jones come up.

All told, it’s another priceless foray into Entertainment, Information & a General Sense of Well Being. Hear the latest from GooseRadio’s purveyors of mirth via the play button below…


We’ve had a week to digest the State of the Union. Was it weird that we didn’t hear anything new five years into the President’s term? Where was the whole Obamacare business in that speech? Brink & I tackle the speech & the opportunities the Presidents’ job performance may just offer the GOP this November. Brink also gets annoyed with John McCain. Sidle up to the play button below and voyage with us toward entertainment, information & a general sense of well being…

Easley Call

There’s not too many things we can be absolutely certain of in our lives. Yet here’s one truth we can know for sure – there will come a time when we’ll have to make a decision. We’ll have to say yes or no, to take one path or the other. And when we make that call, some people may pat us on the back and praise us, but others will very likely be vocal in saying we made the wrong choice. That’s hard.

Thankfully, most of us don’t come to that moment in front of a national television audience numbering in the millions… and in front of a crowd of 68,000 screaming fans. Here’s the story of a man whose decision time came in just that epic scenario.

Lance Easley, an NFL replacement official, could never have expected he’d be on the field on the night of September 24th, 2012 as the Green Bay Packers visited the Seattle Seahawks – much less that he’d be in a position to make the call that would decide the contest. Listen below as he tells the unlikely and remarkable tale of his path to that decision, its consequences, and how his faith guided him through the massive backlash.

It’s a story that starts on a football field, but in the end is so much more about how we live our life, our faith & who we are in Christ. Click play below to hear our full interview with Lance…


With the recent blast of frigidity lampooning the American mainland… it’s time to discuss the importance of an often forgotten garment – long johns.

The venerable Brink Brickley & myself opine on the significance of these items in our own lives. Their indelible impact will doubtless leave you warmer inside this Christmas.

Take a toasty seat aside the latest GooseRadio Podcast as we venture forth to further heights of Entertainment, Information & A General Sense of Well Being.


So how about that deal Kerry nabbed us with the Iranians?! Ya!

Is it weird that they just keep saying over & over again that they want to obliterate Israel and holding people in deplorable prisons simply because they’re Christians… basically threatening the peace of the world and all manners of human decency… but somehow they’re regarded as being in a real push toward moderation?

In a rejoinder to recent comments by Twin Cities’ based talker Jason Lewis, Brink & I take the mics once more to talk the Ayatollah and the Iranians…
