Hi again, cubs!

First, I would like to thank you for giving me a shout out in your last episode. I am glad my email was able to clarify some of your questions and I hope your episode was able to answer other people’s questions as well. Second, I was gladly surprised to receive a public invitation to your podcast! I’d be happy to try it out as I have never been invited to a podcast before. I am going to be moving to Albuquerque, NM this Friday and will not have internet at home for a few days… or many (if you have comcast you may know what I mean). However, let me know how you’d like to start this.

Rex Rivers:

I will not be silenced by fear.

The father of Omar Mateen, the suspect who shot and killed more than 50 people at Orlando’s gay nightclub Pulse, said that his son didn’t like it when he saw two men kissing recently in Miami.

Go out and kiss. In public. Make seeing a kiss a common thing. Take away it’s “shock” value. Do it for those who died, and those who won’t because you had the courage to express your love.

“Hey guys!
So I’m a couple of weeks behind and have just finished listening to episode 240 where Jeff regails us with his Toad-In-The-Hole cooking adventures. Unfortunately Jeff, what you were describing is Egg-In-A-Basket, not Toad-In-The-Hole, which is a dish of fat English sausages baked into a yorkshire pudding style batter. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toad_in_the_hole
If we ever get the chance, I would be more than happy to cook it for you guys. Love,Bruce P.S. If someone has already corrected you on this, there’s no need to read this out :D”

“And we have a NEW contender for this week’s “Bitter, Party Of One” Award (Adam4Adam Division):

You know whats bad? I have a man but he hates me. update time. if im on im horned and ready. im just a country boy lookin to be liberated. b.b. perferred no chocolate plz. and no uncuts. hey. not being picky guys but we are guys and im in the sex mode. and looking for a daddy that will take care of his boy.
If the +Cubs Out Loud boys aren’t taking these down, I’ll be very disappointed. Maybe these can run on the podcast as an adjunct to “Love On Craigslist”.

Hey, guys. I just heard Episode 236 with your pitch for funds to upgrade the equipment used in producing the COL podcast. Having just suffered through the previous episode, with its frequent dropouts and maddening stutters, I’m very sympathetic to your request and have just made a Christmas Day donation that I hope will help in your quest. Don’t know if I’ll ever catch up & become a current listener, but I do listen to them all in order. Keep up the effort.
All the best, Henry

I think you have a strictly gay male slant to your podcast, how about adding a guy who is, as you would say, closeted I think that would add an interesting dynamic to the show, I live and work in a straight world, that I would think would give you better insight on some subjects, let me know
