Midget Porn and Pride Parade Floats
Sorry for the extended hiatus, but school and adulting called, and well, such is life when you have an expensive hobby like talking into a microphone for people to hear. But it was an exciting event. Because after recording this episode we had so much fun, we decided to add a third co-host to the testosterone frenzy that is the Salt City Throwdown! So now, instead of just hearing from Smitty and The Fish Guy rail on Pop Culture events, we have the perspective of someone new to join us! So, before we go too much farther, we are happy introduce our new co-host and associate producer to the Salt City Throwdown, Tabs Grantham. Which will hopefully entertain you as we swear and complain about life, culture, and politics in Utah. Tabs comes into the studio for episode 45 to talk about his life as a trans-male in Utah. It is with this unique perspective that we talk about what his life has been like up to this point, how he ended up in Utah, and what the implications of the recently, and often debated "Utah Compromise" statewide anti-discrimination bill passed during the 2015 general session of the Utah legislature. Then it goes off the roads, and somehow we have decided on our Utah Pride parade float entry, which is sure to be a winner. And Adam brought an IPA. Again. And then we discuss everything from Astrological Signs, to names for Strippers. So sit back, relax and plug the awesomeness that is the Salt City Throwdown into your earholes and enjoy it.

But First; Lemme Take this Selfie. #Justice
Welcome to Episode 38 of the Salt City Throwdown Podcast. In this episode, we debut our new Theme Song... Let us know what you think. Also, we have fixed our issues with the Microphone. So the sound quality is much better than it was on the previous episode. In the first episode of the week. We breakdown the recent polling by our previous guest Doug Owens who is running against Mia "125 days to decline an interview" Love, and is there any path to victory in the Utah 4th for Owen's and his new out of state Campaign manager who was brought into replace Emily Bingham the veritable Democratic force. And we talk about how his campaign isn't trying to win. (And Smitty wants his money back.) Then we talk about the Utah Teacher who was fired for his blog post on "Homophones" being too risque for our sensibilities in Utah. Forget that "Homo" means "Same". A Social Media specialist was fired after he posted a blog about homophones being a signal for gay sex, and he was afraid that it would ruin the reputation of the LANGUAGE school. Then we talk about the police department in New York state who wanted to know if the word "Negro" was "Offensive" because their inmate booking system was classifying african americans in custody as "Negro" so we talk about if the word is in fact offensive. (This is also about the time Smitty finds the Samuel L. Jackson sound board and doesn't talk for a good five minutes while Sam Jackson joins us via random drops.) In other news, Apparently the Satanic Temple of Faith wants their own version of a Hobby Lobby religious exemption... to opt out of State level abortion bans. Using an argument of Liberty and self autonomy. We talk about a Deseret News article that advocates for violating the constitution, and making an argument as to why religion in School's is a good idea. (albeit unconstiutional) Then, what kind of episode of the Salt City Throwdown would it be if we didn't talk about Mark Shurtleff and John Swallow. Last Wednesday, marked the first appearance of former Attorneys General Mark Shurtleff and John Swallow in a court room. Right before he came into court, he posted a selife with his daughter with a sign #Justice. Imagine the Photoshop hilarity that insued. Then We close out the show, reminding our all of our listeners that we will be at Comic-Con Salt Lake City as press. So do your earholes a favor, sit back and rel

Better know a candidate: Sim Gill (Salt Lake County DA) Edition
Sim Gill is a pretty popular guy. He has been in the media a lot latley. From investigating issues in the West Valley City Police Department, to investigating two of our Former Attorneys General on some serious campaign finance, and public trust issues. But there is more to Sim Gill than what you see in the media. He is a guy who has some prolific thoughts in his writing, and some big ideas when it comes to reforming the justice system in Utah. In this episode we talk about his background, running for District Attorney for a second term, his branding, and how he ended up having the views he does when it comes to justice and how he runs his office. We also find out what his future plans are - especially the big question of "Will he serve a full second term" or "Red Iguana vs. Bombay House" The answers to this might suprise you. So sit back and relax and enjoy the Salt City Throwdown Podcast brought to you by Salt Lake Comic Con. (Note: There were some abnormalites in the recording of this episode, so this episode might sound a bit different. We have tried to fix it as much as possible, but there are still some clicks (like Adam the Keyboard Basher).

...And Equality for All.
It was a busy week. Everything was going along swimmingly until The 10th Circuit Court of appeals dropped the mic and re-affrmed what we and almost everyone else knows. Gay Marriage is the right thing to do, it is fair, and there is no basis to ban it. That would have been cool, but they dropped it in the middle of Charles Stormont making his campaign kickoff. Then we spend an hour talking to Kate Kelly. Kate is the founder of the Ordain Women movement who earlier in the week was ex-communicated because she asked the wrong questions. We talk about the decision, her reaction, why she didn't attend the meeting via "Secure Video Conference" and the future of the Ordain Women Movement. Then we close it out with a long rant about participating in the process. Because if you don't participate in elections and the political process, not only are you missing out, but you lose your ability to complain. So, Sit back, relax, and if you happen to work for the Utah Attorney General's office, give this a listen, it will make you feel better about not filing the appeal for Gay Marriage recognition corectly.

We talk about his campaign, how he decided to run, his father who was a four term representative from UTah, and other topics that are important to this crucial race. And also, some questions just to get to know Mr. Owens better. (He likes Red Iguana better than Cafê Rio) So sit back, relax, and lets get to better know a candidate on this episode of the Salt City Throwdown Podcast. (Note: There is no break in this episode due to the fact that we originally thought this interview would be 30 minutes, but we had so much fun we lost track of time)

Better know a Utah Candidate: Andrew McCullough edition.
Fresh off the Democratic and Republican conventions in Salt Lake County we decided to bring on a Libertarian (Because they seem to answer emails and phone calls). We talk to Andrew about his platform, his background as a civil rights defense lawyer for the most unlikely clients (but believable when you hear who they are). It was a great conversation, and it was fun to get a different point of view.
