Tom Barnard Show

The Family: Journalistic and economic integrity, or lack thereof – #2446

Another day means more tech issues, but luckily all was resolved as quick as possible. If you missed the opening portion of the show it’s available in the first hour of the podcast!

In the first hour, SKOR North’s Judd Zulgad talks about blacked out Minnesota Vikings games back in the day before the conversations shifts to how baseball isn’t romanticized today like it used to be, and KSTP’s Chris Egert has the latest on Biden’s meeting with Xi, some of the last remaining pandas are leaving the U.S. plus other local stories!

Hour #2 has the crew learn about the Red Cup Rebellion which details the largest Starbucks strike to date, seeing workers set to leave the store until a new contract is agreed upon with their union. Plus Tom drools over how good Entenmann’s Donuts are.

In hour #3 Kristyn Burtt enjoys a bit of gossip. And by “a bit” I mean “a lot”. And that’s the perspective of someone who works in Hollywood. It seems that if you work in showbiz for long enough, you’ll witness enough divorces to make even a certain minister proud.

On the Family, we recall the good old days when Thanksgiving dinner was more expensive, inflation was higher, and interest rates were in the double digits. Hey, it’s important to remember that even if things suck, they could always suck worse. That’s called positivity. Or maybe it’s just positivity-adjacent. Close enough.

Stream the show LIVE on the Tom Barnard Show app M-F from 8-12PM or get the show on-demand on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts!
