Tony V. Baughman (journalist, DJ, comedian and actor) is today's featured guest.
Topics: surprises he witnessed as a journalist riding on the John Edwards campaign bus; how politicians are now actors first and politicians second; why not being an actor may have contributed to John McCain losing the last presidential election; the danger that future organizations may hoard information; our civilization's vulnerability to its computerized distribution system; how acting a theatrical role alters a person dramatically but at a subconscious level; and one last mention of the cultural significance of events such as Bonnaroo.
