These guys are down to earth, intelligent and relatable. They have a wealth of experience in the corporate world but also understand that people want to be treated as individuals and need fulfillment and dignity, especially over age 50.

I was blessed to have your podcast brought to my attention JUST in time to align with what is needed in our world right now…compassion and support in grieving and healing! Thank you for your encouragement and wisdom!

Barry Edwards and Merle Garrison discuss: COVID Karen at local football game. Debate of personal freedom to not wear mask vs complying with temporary restrictions to enable the kids to enjoy their sport – Is this exercising her rights/freedom, or is she self-centered and making a situation about herself rather than the kids?

The deaf ears of the public after the Breanna Taylor verdict. Once again mainstream media stokes racial fires with misinformation.

Herschel Walker vs the BLM movement and NFL

Herschel Walker slams BLM movement: “Is this who you’re supporting?!” Walker challenges NFL teams to disown the movement after learning BLM leaders are trained Marxists.

Special thanks to Tim and Christina Newman. Thank you for your kind comments and review! Tim points out that he enjoys and recommends our show in spite of not agreeing with some of what we say.  Heck, Merle and I didn’t agree on anything this whole show!

Current Events quick hits: COVID vaccines making huge progress. Four in Stage 3 trials! Can’t get here fast enough for Barry. Of course, Merle finds a conspiracy in this.

RIP, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Former Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Merle clarifies debate over possibly of appointing new SC Justice before upcoming election.

California mandates full conversion to electric vehicles by 2035. Merle doesn’t like the government interference. Barry loves the idea of getting beyond combustible engines.

61% approve of removal of electoral college. Oh boy.
