What the Hell Were You Thinking
About This Show
When you went looking for a podcast and started listening to this one: What the HELL Were You Thinking?
Host Dave Bledsoe takes a weekly look at politics, pop culture, the media, the contents of his friend’s liquor cabinets, or anything that manages to pique his interests. Dave blends his distinctly left of center political world view with profound nostalgia for a lost childhood, disgust with hypocrisy and abiding love of Irish Whiskey (Jameson, we don’t do Protestant whiskey on this podcast) into a show which should appeal to the distinct palette of angry liberals, cynical Gen Xers and Millennials bent on ironically mingling 80’s music and modern politics. (See—I told you we have generational appeal!) The What the HELL Were You Thinking Podcast will have you asking the tough questions, or least what Dave’s deal with old televisions shows is all about. Honestly, he’s probably on the spectrum with this kind of behavior.

SHOW NOTES EPISODE #115: “The Center Cannot Hold”
This week Host Dave Bledsoe plaintively asks if he is naught but a pair of ragged claws only to discover he’s mixed up W.B. Yeats and T.S. Elliott. Again. On the show this week we plaintively ask why can’t we all just get along only to discover we’ve NEVER really gotten along, we just stopped pretending to even try.
Along the way we discover that He Man and She Ra were really concerned about pedophiles in the 80’s, and that despite what they told us in school, the United States is not historically a Nation. (Fake History! Sad!) There is a digression into why Tim Allen is so persecuted and deeper digression into furniture styles since the Revolutionary War. (Only one of these is relevant.) Also, there is Springsteen as Prophet and ponder if establishing a religion around The Boss is fiscally sound. Finally, we lean excessively on the hackneyed rhetorical and literary crutch of The Second Coming. (The poem not the sad second masturbation session of a Sunday afternoon.) We warn the listener in advance, this not a “peppy” show with a lot of “happiness” or “hope” within. We also warn the listener that over use of quoted words make you appear a bit prickish. (This does not “stop” us from doing so.)
Our Sponsor this week is Leon’s Sphinx repair, from Giza to the your front stoop, we solve the riddle of keeping your Sphinx clean. We open the show with Dave reading Yeats and close with Geoffrey Schott (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WftyKtMELR4) telling us he feels fine about the end of the world.
