Ep. 189 - Rob Burgess [VIII]

 


Hello and welcome to The Rob Burgess Show. I am, of course, your host, Rob Burgess.
On this our 189th
episode, our guest is … me!
My first solo episode of this podcast was
Episode 41, the second was Episode 62, the third was Episode 84, the fourth was Episode 117, the fifth was Episode 131, the sixth was Episode 135 and the seventh was Episode 182. And, on Episode 100, I was joined by my wife and regular guest Ash Burgess, who interviewed me.
I am a 10-time award-winning journalist whose work has appeared in print, radio, online, and television. I am currently Editor of the Wabash Plain Dealer. Most recently, I was News Editor of NUVO; Managing Editor of the Indiana Lawyer; and City Editor, Opinion Page Editor and Editorial Board Member of the Kokomo Tribune. I was also a reporter at WFHB, the Times-Mail, The Reporter-Times, Ukiah Daily Journal and Ukiah Valley Television.
Oh yeah, and I’m also the proprietor of the podcast, The Rob Burgess Show.

A quick programming note: I recorded this episode at 4:45 p.m. Saturday, February 13, 2021 immediately after the Senate acquitted Donald Trump after his second impeachment trial. And while it may sound like I'm recording this in a submarine, I was really in the middle of doing some last minute Valentine's Day shopping.

Ep. 185 - Jonathan Fowler [LV]

 


Hello and welcome to The Rob Burgess Show. I am, of course, your host, Rob Burgess. On this, our 185th  episode, our returning guest is Jonathan Fowler.
You first heard Jonathan Fowler on Episode 2Episode 10Episode 20Episode 21Episode 29Episode 30Episode 31Episode 32Episode 34Episode 35, Episode 43Episode 48Episode 51Episode 56Episode 64Episode 74Episode 83Episode 92Episode 102Episode 103Episode 104Episode 105Episode 106Episode 107Episode 108Episode 109Episode 111Episode 114Episode 115Episode 116Episode 119Episode 126Episode 127Episode 133Episode 137Episode 140Episode 146Episode 147Episode 149Episode 153Episode 156Episode 158Episode 160Episode 162Episode 164Episode 167Episode 168Episode 169Episode 172Episode 173Episode 174Episode 179Episode 180, Episode 181and Episode 82, also featuring fellow regular guest Ash Burgess of the podcast.
Jonathan graduated with a BA in history from Indiana University in 2006. He is an unabashed left-wing political junkie. He has lived and worked in South Korea for over 10 years, trying to help the citizens of that great nation, hopefully, "talk pretty one day."
A quick programming note: This episode was recorded last Monday, before Democrats Jon Ossoff and Rev. Rafael Warnock won the two Georgia Senate seats on Tuesday, before an armed insurrection stormed the Capitol at the direction of President Donald Trump on Wednesday, before Trump was banned from every major social media platform on Friday and before House Democrats drafted articles of impeachment over the weekend. We will be certain to discuss all that during a future episode.
