Plus, co-host Spencer Dobson and I talk about fallout from the Clare Lopez anti-Islam show, backlash against South Dakota’s discriminatory adoption law, Speaker Mark Mickelson and the cost of vo-tech education, and our Congressional delegation’s aversion to town halls.

    Another gem. You guys mesh, well. Support Green Aberdeen- No foodouts. #grins

  2. Mr. Lansing, if I may ask you a question having not listened to Mr. H’s tape recording. I know you were a fully trained chef. If you would help teach an old fellow like me, what is a foodout?

  3. A gem?! That’s an awfully nice word. Thanks, Porter!

    Grudz, if you listen to the audio (click the orange triangle, the Play button, just like on your old tape recorder) and roll forward to about 46:00, the term will make perfect sense. (Go ahead, click the button—it’s free, and no subliminal messages.)

    Hello, Mr. Grudznick. A foodout is like an electrical blackout but cities run out of food. It came up in a discussion about how many small farms have been consolidated into mega food corporations.
