The Best of 2019 Sizzle Reel

Sizzle Synopsis - Ernest Hooper.

Come along on a fantastic voyage as the Dishonorable Mention crew sails through its first year of political discourse, romantic reminiscing, engaging interviews and yes, random singing.

In this 40-minute highlight audio reel from 2019, we explore the divisive nature of our current climate without growing divisive. We delve into such topics as the importance of media literacy, the entertainment value of true-life crime shows and the challenges of serving Florida as a state representative.

We revisit our trip to Florida’s state capital, discuss the death penalty, poke holes in the state’s school voucher program and poignantly ask if society can find a better way to raise men in the 21st century.

But we also have fun. We travel back to the days of Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock, showcase an up and coming Tampa bakery (we want Lizzo cookies) and salute Boyz II Men (or try to salute Boyz II Men). You won’t believe our view on the 1995 film Showgirls, and you won’t stop laughing about what we commonly refer to as the “Son of a Senator” story.

Through it all, a thread of love and respect connects this “polititainment potpourri.” Becca Tieder, Chris Latvala, Ernest Hooper and Karla Mastracchio gathered together in 2019 to connect with the Tampa Bay community and positively impact discourse around the nation. Listen to what happens when four fun-loving, politically-inclined people get real by letting go of diatribes and embracing dialogue.
