In a painfully honest reflection, Ashley crushes stigma and leaves us acutely aware of how our words and actions affect our colleagues and those that we love.

Pandora Opens at Disney's Animal Kingdom

Disney has announced the opening date for Pandora and it is May 27, 2017.  This is the same day Universal Orlando Resort opens it's third theme park - Volcano Bay.  So there is so much to see this year in Orlando Florida.

If you have not already heard, Disney has been building Pandora at their Animal Kingdom park in Florida and it's been a good six years since it was announced. Disney is fantastic at story telling so even if you have not seen the Avatar film you will be immersed in this new land.

Disney Parks Blog announces the opening on their website;  "This new land will transport guests to the visually stunning world of Pandora. Here, guests will wonder at floating mountains and bioluminescent plants, and can join the Na’vi on two excursions that take adventure to the next level.

First, the family friendly Na’vi River Journey will send guests through a bioluminescent rainforest. Their journey will end in an unforgettable encounter with a Na’vi Shaman, a figure who has a deep connection to the life force of Pandora. And second, Avatar Flight of Passage will offer guests the jaw-dropping experience of exploring the world of Pandora atop a Banshee.

Guests will also be able to dine at Satu’li Canteen, grab a drink at Pongu Pongu or shop for Na’vi cultural items, toys, science kits, and more at Windtraders."

I got a text that wrote: "Thanks for your podcast! I love listening to Celtic music and it helps me relax as I work on my grad school presentations"

Kevin Lavery emailed: "I'm a recent college grad from central Pennsylvania and your podcast has kept me company on many solo road trips and whenever my Pandora station just lacks the variety I seek. I know you're often looking for new bands to play, and I wanted to suggest Down by the Glenside. I've seen them perform twice, in Gettysburg and at a Celtic festival in Harrisburg hosted by the Kilmaine Saints. Both bands put on a great show at the festival, but DbtG was closer to my own tastes in music. I'd love to see their work get some love with a wider audience. Thanks for doing what you do."

Episode 234 - SHOT Show 2017  

Fresh off of SHOT Show, Jack Murphy and I are joined by Mark Miller and Erik Meisner. Erik is a former Squad Leader for the 75th Ranger Regiment and writes for The Loadout Room. Mark is a former Green Beret and the editor and a writer for The Arms Guide. The Arms Guide is your go-to resource for learning about firearms, and The Loadout Room is the premiere site for hardcore gear and adventure. Both are a part of Hurricane Group, and we don’t speak to the writers that do stellar work on these sites often enough, so we highly recommend that you check them out and also follow The Loadout Room and The Arms Guide on Twitter. The four of us recap our experience at SHOT Show and what’s to come in the world of guns and gear in 2017. I also got interviews at SHOT Show with our friends Terry Schappert and SOFREP writer James Powell. I spoke to Michael Janich over at Spyderco as well. Plus, we couldn’t forget to hear from some Team Room members over at the SOFREP party which took place at the House of Blues Foundation Room at the top of the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. We pack all of that content into this hour. Get early access to all new episodes, as well as full access to our archives of raw, uncut interviews and straight talk with guys from the Special Operations community: join.sofrep.com/radio/

It's A Crime Mr. Collins - Murder Of The Fabulous Redhead (1956)  


Murder Of The Fabulous Redhead (1956) *The Exact Date Is Unknown.
It's a Crime, Mr. Collins was a half-hour mystery/adventure radio program broadcast weekly from August, 1956 to February, 1957 by Mutual Broadcasting System in the United States that was a "flagrant rip-off of The Adventures of the Abbotts in which only the names had been changed." San Francisco private detective Greg Collins was played by Mandel Kramer (who had previously been heard as Lieutenant Tragg in the radio version of Perry Mason) and his wife, Gail Collins, was played by namesake Gail Collins. Each week, Gail Collins, "the gumshoe's gorgeous spouse -- with green-eyed predilections emerging as curvaceous damsels in distress frequently petitioned her husband -- shared his investigative exploits with her Uncle Jack and thereby with the listeners at home." Uncle Jack was played by Richard Denning, whom listeners had heard from 1952 to 1954 as amateur detective Jerry North in the radio version of Mr. and Mrs. North. THIS EPISODE: 1956. Mutual network origination, syndicated. "The Murder Of The Fabulous Redhead". Commercials added locally. Mr. Collins is hired to find a beautiful woman who's been missing for six months. When she's found dead, it's Mrs. Collins who goes to jail for the crime! The date is approximate. Mandel Kramer, Gail Collins, Richard Denning. 25:06. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Zero Hour - Smoke Screen (07-25-74)  


Smoke Screen (Aired July 25, 1974)
The Zero Hour (aka Hollywood Radio Theater) was a 1973-74 radio drama anthology series hosted by Rod Serling. With tales of mystery, adventure and suspense, the program aired in stereo for two seasons. Some of the scripts were written by Serling. Originally placed into syndication on September 3, 1973, the series was picked up by the Mutual Broadcasting System in December of that year. The original format featured five-part dramas broadcast Monday through Friday with the story coming to a conclusion on Friday. Including commercials, each part was approximately 30 minutes long. Mutual affiliates could broadcast the series in any time slot that they wished. In 1974, still airing five days a week, the program changed to a full story in a single 30-minute installment with the same actor starring throughout the week in all five programs. That format was employed from late April 1974 to the end of the series on July 26, 1974.

Sytze Kamphuis posted in the shownotes: "Hey Marc, there is one Celtic Christmas song that I always play in the winter. It is not just one of the best Celtic Christmas songs I've ever heard, it's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard, period. Seacht Suailci Na Maighdine Muire by Aoife ni Farragh from her album 'Aoife'. Hope you get a chance to listen to it and I wish you and your family all the best for 2017."

Jeffrey Evans emailed a picture: "On the Celtic postcast, you're always asking what were doing when we're listening. Normally, that is difficult for me since I'm either listen to new episodes at work and there is a strict rule about taking pictures inside the plant fence or I'm listening to some favorite episodes that I have permanently downloaded as I'm falling asleep. Not today. It's probably the last decent day of the year for the Ohio Valley. I left work early and just sitting outside, cross stitching a celtic cross as a wedding gift for a friend as episode 154 plays."

Alex Marling emailed: "Hello Marc I would like to say that I really enjoyed your Irish and Celtic pub songs from your #114th podcast it was great I live in Canada Ontario in a small town called innisfill. We are mostly farming but I am a high school student and whenever I have a bad day I just go and listen to your amazing podcast I also like to say that on YouTube you look like a wooky with long hair and your star wars song makes me laugh every time. Have a good day and keep it up your podcast is incredibly amazing."

Allan Marcotte emailed a Christmas picture: "I enclose a picture of the star for the top of my tree and it is special. This is the same star that topped the Christmas trees that I grew up with back in the 60's and 70's. For years my younger sister had it but did not use it. A few years back I asked for it. Well this year for Christmas, I found that she had sent it to me. Talk about a wonderful surprise and a flood of memories. I want to wish you and your family a most Merry Christmas and joyous New Year"

TLS #187: Energy, Flow, and Finding Adventure in Your Own Hometown with Rob Lawless  

Happy 2017! I am SO excited to dive into this year with you... reading all of the wonderful emails and comments sharing how pumped you are about more episodes around consciousness and energy was incredible. And we’re starting this focus today with an interview with Rob Lawless, a 26 year-old Philadelphian who is using these principles his own life. Rob has set out to meet 10,000 people - spending one hour getting to know each person individually through his project, Robs10kfriends.com. So far, Rob has met 600+ people and the project is gaining momentum, attention, and creating fascinating connections for the members of the project. In addition to the project itself, we spend the second half of the show discussing Rob’s mindset and the results he has seen from focusing his energy and finding flow within his circumstances. This episode is perfect for anyone looking to get inspired to live a more adventurous life within their hometown, and for anyone looking to hear an inspiring story of flow, energy, and alignment.   [Tweet "“You never know who someone else is connected to." - @robs10kfriends"] [Tweet "“Everyone is just trying to do their best to live the life that’s best for them." - @robs10kfriends"] [Tweet "“People are the cumulation of the experiences they had in their life. " - @robs10kfriends"] [Tweet "“Rockbottom has a large pillow on top of it." - @robs10kfriends"] [Tweet "“Taking that first step is the most important thing." - @robs10kfriends"]   IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL FIND OUT ABOUT   Rob tells us how he chose this project after being laid off from his job and how this has become his life mission. He talks about the common themes that he hears from the people he meets and interviews. He describes a theme that he has found which is taking difficult situations and turning them into positive life experiences. Rob talks about how all these stories and experiences have changed his life and he now has a new awareness in his life. He discusses how the loss of his job contributed to this project in a positive way. Rob says that you need to become more vulnerable in order to overcome the obstacles of doing something new or achieving a goal. He says the key to this project is to meet people and share stories without any “transactional” value attached. Rob's conversation with the people is mainly about where they are today, where they were before and the in-between parts of how they got there. He describes his excitement with uncertainty in the future because it makes his life exciting and adds adventure to it. Rob talks about his internal doubts and where he sees himself going forward in his life and his project.   SHOW NOTES   Outliers Myers & Briggs The Alchemist Laws of Attraction     LISTEN TO THE SHOW  

<B>It's A Crime Mr. Collins - The Lost Film (1956)</B>  


The Lost Film (1956) *The Exact Date Is Unknown.
It's a Crime, Mr. Collins was a half-hour mystery/adventure radio program broadcast weekly from August, 1956 to February, 1957 by Mutual Broadcasting System in the United States that was a "flagrant rip-off of The Adventures of the Abbotts in which only the names had been changed." San Francisco private detective Greg Collins was played by Mandel Kramer (who had previously been heard as Lieutenant Tragg in the radio version of Perry Mason) and his wife, Gail Collins, was played by namesake Gail Collins. Each week, Gail Collins, "the gumshoe's gorgeous spouse -- with green-eyed predilections emerging as curvaceous damsels in distress frequently petitioned her husband -- shared his investigative exploits with her Uncle Jack and thereby with the listeners at home." Uncle Jack was played by Richard Denning, whom listeners had heard from 1952 to 1954 as amateur detective Jerry North in the radio version of Mr. and Mrs. North. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group. THIS EPISODE: 1956. Mutual network origination, syndicated. "The Lost Film". Commercials added locally. A vacation in New York leads to a mysterious traffic homicide and the kidnapping of Mrs. Collins! The date is approximate. Mandel Kramer, Gail Collins, Richard Denning. 27:16.
