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.

EPISODE #119: “Steel Rail Blues”
This week Host Dave Bledsoe asks the listeners to please stand clear of the closing doors, there is a podcast directly behind this one. On the show this week we take a look at the broke ass, no good, very bad, pee smelling New York City Subway System. (Don’t worry we make it relevant to you Middle America!) If you’ve never experienced a crowded mass transit man vigorously masturbating to you, you will now!
Along the way we learn the history of why the United States doesn’t give a damn about Mass Transit (Hint: You might be in the reason right now). We determine once and for all who is in charge of making the trains run on time in New York City. (He is Italian, but no Mussolini) Also within, everything you thought you knew about the Interstate is probably wrong. (Originally, no cars allowed!) Finally, we give you the car owning American every reason to question your decision to own and car and a little taste of an average trip on the Subway. (Trigger Warning for anyone who drives or rides the subway.)
Our Sponsor this week in New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who wants you to know this shit ain’t on him! We open the show with Elaine Benes as Every New Yorker and close with Youtuber Timothy Dennis’ cover of “Steel Rail Blues”. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4CU1p3o9S4)
