A Lively Discussion of Music and Politics

The news discussion portion of our podcast, “and then there’s that…” ran a little longer than usual this week. Paul and I got into a lively discussion about the HoCo GOP’s Taxpayer Protection Initiative and my recent endorsement of Dennis Schrader for the District 3 council seat.

And once again dogs were big in the local news. Whether it is a county police SWAT team shooting a family dog or an altercation involving a pit bull, local residents can’t seem to resist weighing in on all matters canine. The most recent story in The Sun about the pit bull that attacked and fatally wounded another dog in the Woodlands neighborhood has generated 49 comments so far, rivaling the feedback received for more heated issues such as the Town Center or Doughoregan development plans.

Our guest this week was Jean Parker, the general manager of Merriweather Post Pavilion a job she’s held for like forever. What many people may not realize is that Jean is a HoCo local girl who went to Mount Hebron High School. Jean shared her thoughts on the past present and future of the outdoor performing arts facility in a fun and informative exchange.
