Bonus - Destroying Public Ed one "Scholarship" at a Time

Episode Notes

Here is a Bonus! Jordan is joined by his wife Elise to discuss education and how it is being affected by the Utah Legislative session. We focus on the voucher system from HB 215: How it cuts funds, only benefits the rich and privileged, and does nothing to support rural students, disabled students, or multi-lingual students.

We then go on to discuss Todd Weiler's SB 100 on school's policies regarding gender identification, and how it makes for unsafe and uncomfortable environments in schools.

We close out with a discussion on Jordan Teuscher's HB 241, an strictly anti-union bill designed to starve public unions of money and kill their ability to operate at all in the organizations they serve.

All in all, a really horrific legislative session.

#109 – A Year in Review w/ The Worst of All Possible Worlds

It's time to talk about the year that was: 2022. We lived it. We loved it. And the boys enlisted the help of Brian and Josh from The Worst of All Possible Worlds to talk through all the big moments from the year gone by. And at the end, we give out the coveted, honorary awards to the year's biggest freaks. 2023 -- onward and upward.

(Sorry if the audio gets a lil weird toward the end. I had to edit in our backup audio lol)

#107 – A Not So Merry Techsmas

Happy holidays, bozos. We had a lot to catch up on together... In this ep, we talk about an exciting local NFT export, Rocky declaring for mayor, and our upcoming Street Fight Radio appearance. Then, Greg takes us through his Hell Lines™ that include a local cookie company using child labor, OUR making a comeback, SBF's arrest, and more!

And finally, we talk through the recent waves of mass layoffs taking place across the tech industry, but hitting hard specifically in Utah... just in time for the holidays. We need a complete and total shutdown of economists until we can figure out what the hell is going on.

Greg is picking up anything you're willing to donate: shoes, warm clothes, hats, etc. He'll drive to you and pick it up.

On the ep, the boys catch up on what we've been up to as a pod and talk about Joe Biden scabbing, Kanye's extended nazi media tour, Elon's brain chips, and more. We also talk about a good op-ed and reporting out of the SL Trib about the water situation and how we can't keep pretending like alfalfa isn't draining our state dry.

And finally, Jordan teaches us about what's been going on with the state prison being moved. Turns out that real estate developers have really bungled the whole thing, leaving extremely unsafe conditions at the new expensive prison, including a massive mosquito problem. Who would've guessed?

Here's some reporting on the prison topic from Paighten Harkins.

Outro song by SLCHC band Spent.

#104 – We got the Jazz ft. Joey & Sean of Roundball Rock

We're back! And it's a fun and not depressing one. The boys are joined by our friends Sean and Joey from the excellent Roundball Rock podcast. We cover quite a bit in this ep, including a recap of the Brandon Midterms, Elon's captaincy of the Twitter Titanic, and more.

Then, Jordan gives us one of his famous history lessons and covers the incredible journey of the Utah Jazz, which includes playing in comically awful arenas with floor nets, consequential involvement by a Saudi arms-dealer, Larry Miller making The Church proud, all leading up to Talen Horton-Tucker dunking on the Lakers in 2022.

Go check out Roundball Rock wherever fine podcasts are served. And go support Joey and Sean. They're cool and funny and I (Kyle) like them. Can't speak for Jordan or Greg.

#103 – Oops, All Hell Lines

The boys are back. It's November. A new month with new possibilities.

Greg updates us on his new career path! Catch him at a very special second-iteration of a very special conference definitely taking place next year.

In this ep, we catch up on what's being going on lately and buddy, there's a lot. We talk about racist Utah teenagers wearing some of the most racist costumes we've ever seen, Lula's extremely important victory over perennial covid-haver Jair Bolsonaro, The Church scheming in the outback, Saudis draining the American West, and more.

We're planning on live-streaming during the evening of next Tuesday's midterm elections. Catch us on twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/bympod

#101 – Indignity Index

Today we are joined by Brian from the fantastic podcast The Worst of All Possible Worlds!

The boys talk about Greg leaving the Democratic party alongside his favorite surfing TERF, the country moving towards Brandonizing weed, Alex Jones owing the monetary equivalent of trillions of poison brain pills in damages, Burgess Owens hiding from a debate because of a cartoonist, and more.

And finally, we get Dignified using a new online political lifesaver that's stopping violence and saving democracy by analyzing one tweet at a time. Buckle up, baby.

#100 – Keeping it 100

That's right, baby. We've made it to 100 and the haters and losers are devastated. They said we couldn't do it. It is the season finale of BYM and we have a special show for you all.

We start out with a quick catch up with a certain congresswoman from Florida, some talk about The Church's pamphlets and a general authority quoting normal guy Rod Dreher, and a discussion of a battle among a father, his son, and CTE. After that, the boys review the hottest politically-correct Halloween costume trends, brought to you by the Deseret News.

And finally, we play a bunch of messages left by our loving friends and guests of the pod who definitely still like us. I think.

Go support them because we love them almost as much as we hate ourselves:

Thank you all for listening and supporting the show. Let's hope the Great Salt Lake isn't dry by the time we get to episode 200.

#98 – Save Our Great Salt Lake feat. Nate Housley

Yo! It's Kyle and Greg this week. We start things off by talking about our new and exciting sponsor, an update on Jordan's whereabouts, the untimely death of a monarch, and the anniversary of Ted Cruz exposing his online tastes. We then briefly talk about a wild situation in Vegas, the horrific water situation in Jackson, and another LDS bishop getting busted for extremely bad stuff.

The main event for this episode, though, is our discussion with our favorite historian, Nate Housley (@Nate_Housley), a founding member of Save Our Great Salt Lake.

We talk about the water situation in Utah, the effects of the shrinking Great Salt Lake, the impact of agriculture and the questions we should be asking about it, and what needs to be done to start turning things around.

Save Our Great Salt Lake will be at Slackwater SLC (684S 500W) at 6PM this Wednesday, September 14th. Come meet like-minded people, socialize, and then hear Nate give a presentation starting at 7 about the frontier origin of our water system and where we go from here.
