There’s going to be blood, a lot of it!



Why is there blood?

Blood start pumping! As I sit here, first thing in the morning, enjoying a cup of coffee, a bowl of Grape nuts with almond milk, a hard boiled, free range, organic egg, and toast with super chunk peanut butter, I realize I better snap off a preview for Episode 328 of our podcast before I hop in the car to drive to LA Radio Studio on the edge of the beautiful Los Angeles Harbor.

Did I mention blood yet?

First up on the show today, what I believe is the news item of the week…remember, we don’t talk politics…something happened to a 16-year-old boy in Australia when he went into the water at the beach, and when he came out, he was a bloody mess! That something will definitely make you think twice about going in the water, but really, I wonder if this is a sign of the beginning of the end for humans on Earth? Marine biology expert, Professor Alistair Poore joins us from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia to let us know if our species stands a chance against this lurking sea menace.

Yay! Darkness!

Next, a lot of people, millions of people, are flocking to cities they wouldn’t normally consider traveling to, just so they can experience darkness for about 5 minutes. Yes, it’s the total eclipse of the sun on August 21st. J. Kelly Beatty is the Senior Editor of Sky & Telescope Magazine. He’ll give us a star-gazer’s perspective on this very rare event and whether it’s worth it to travel to see it in it’s totality.

Speaking of travel, our travel dude, Gary Warner joins us to talk about something United Airlines is doing that might just usher in a new golden era of travel to Hawaii. I am pretty sure Gary has mentioned on the show several times that Hawaii is his favorite place to visit.

Just back from a trip himself, is none other than Manny the Movie Guy. I want to hear all about his trip to Greece in search of Wonder Woman’s cave. Did he find her? Was he taken hostage and ravaged by man-starved amazons? We’ll find out…and we’ll also find out if this weekend’s new movies are worth seeing. Manny will review Annabelle: Creation, starring Miranda Otto and Anthony LaPaglia…who I am pretty sure both die in the movie.  The animated sequel, The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature featuring the voices of Will Arnett, Katherine Heigl, Maya Rudolph, Gabriel Iglesias, Bobby Cannavale, Peter Stormare and Jackie Chan. I wonder if  Chan do es his own stunts in this movie? And The Glass Castle, which stars Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts.

Plus, the strange side-effects of tattoo’s, why it’s a bad idea to use conditioner on your hair after a nuclear blast, have nutrition experts been lying to us all these years about salt? Alcohol-infused hamburgers, Harley-Davidson-infused Gin, and…oh, that should be enough…but it isn’t. You need to hear this episode to know what else we have up our sleeves.

Joining me in the studio for today’s show are the lovely, the talented, straight outta Nashville, Skylar Cuarisma-Parshall, and the almost as lovely…well, it is possible he has better hair…certainly talented, my buddy from way back when we both worked at Pure Rock 105.5 KNAC FM in the 1980’s, Stew Herrera.
