Out of Sync

It was bound to happen. After forty eight shows we were probably way overdo for a serious guest problem. Two weeks ago, we had hoped to have Laura Neuman, the new HoCo Economic Development Chief as our guest for this weeks podcast. It turns out that the earliest she was available was sometime in 2013.

Just kidding of course.

Our next invitee was William McMahon, the HoCo Chief of Police. We thought it would be interesting to get the chiefs perspective on the two recent murders in HoCo and perhaps some insight into the loco police role with DHS. The chief readily agreed to join us until Tuesday when he informed us he had to cancel. He apparently got called away on police business.

That happens.

No problem. We had also planned to split the show with Councilperson Greg Fox. After the councils legislative public hearing this past Monday we felt we could build a whole show around Greg.

Friday morning, about seven hours before the show, Greg called. He contracted food poisoning the night before and spent the better part of the evening in the emergency room. Obviously he wouldn’t be joining us in the The Mall that afternoon.

We were grateful that Jan Hines, the Director of Development for the Howard Hospital Foundation, was willing to fill in at the last minute. Jan was a delightful guest but I don’t think we did a very good job as hosts. I felt this show was generally pretty flat. We were simply out of sync.

It was bound to happen,
