News: Guest Strip - Steve Conley

This Wedding (And Funeral) Is Nothing But Drama

Wedding reception speeches are usually cheesy - unless it reveals juicy details of an unsolved murder The best part of any wedding is getting tipsy at the reception. The second best part? the drama. This stands true in “The Coop” house too: Mary and Miles are completely unprepared wedding speeches (which is honestly not surprising), but as the two exchange advice (“speak from your heart!” yeah, whatever Miles), Mary discovers a condemning piece of evidence that may change every...

Operating notes: activity down?, New England QSO Party, new speakers

After most of the country went on lockdown, I noticed an increase in activity on the CW bands.

Original Content podcast: Waco offers a surprising look at a real-world tragedy

“Waco,” a Paramount Network series that recently started streaming on Netflix, dramatizes the tragic real-life standoff between the FBI, the ATF and the Branch Davidians. A couple of your Original Content podcast hosts only had a fuzzy idea of what actually went down in Waco, Texas in 1993. And all of us were surprised by the depiction of the Branch Davidian cult as creepy and delusional, but not particularly dangerous. Instead, the show puts much of the blame for what transpired on law enfor...
