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 2016 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.

Along the way we talk about the American tradition of people who lose elections not starting a war over their loss, except for that one time when they totally did. We compare Al Gore to George Washington, fitting the Father of our Country and the Father of Our Internet together at last. We also discuss televangelists and why they always need a new plane. (Hint: Can’t get the hooker smell out of the old one) We cover strategies for dealing with Monopoly losers and really wonder why ANYONE plays Monopoly, it goes on FOREVER! There is some small discussion about why threatening to violently overthrow the government of the United States of Ame
rica and assassinate its elected leaders is PROBABLY not something you want to say on television. Unless you are cast in a exciting action drama on FX, then it is perfectly fine,.
