Episode 191030 & Show Notes


Hello and welcome to Other Items Of Interest, so good to have you as our guest. This week's show is a doozy, if we may say so ourselves. It all starts with a song about suicide for children and we end up putting ourselves in virtual worlds. In between is the usual strange mix of odd and weird. 

Are there any regrets? Sure, covering the article about Tom de Longe and his To The Stars Academy by ArmyTimes.com in which punctuation was nearly non-existent. Just paragraphs of run-on sentences, one after another. Horrid. Thank you for letting me get that off my chest. 

host, Jack Zablocki
music, Honed Flesh Jet
production, Jim Harrod
