As with all things worthwhile, however, there needs to be a catalyst – a push. Fire in the belly and/or under one’s backside. God has provided many of these since that beginning and the latest follows.
I have had trouble being hired in traditional positions because I have a record: carrying a loaded firearm; a misdemeanor. Yes, that’s a no-no here in California.
It was a first offense from six years ago, and I plan on having the record expunged – I’ve been a good girl since then. That, however, costs hundreds of dollars.
There’s additional motivation that I’ll get to in a later post.
In the meantime, I’ve kept plugging at what I love -- analyzing, observing and communicating – using the tools that I have.
But, as I pointed out earlier, I wasn’t using all of my tools.
So, I reached out to good friend and long-time baldilocks blog supporter Dave Perkins about helping me restart a regular podcast and below is a link to our first production. Dave is the producer and editor.

Considering the way in which Big Social Media is clamping down on conservative content producers, this, however, could be the wrong time to start.
Or the right time.
I’d say that it’s the latter. Just a few days ago, I was having a chat with a Facebook friend, a fellow conservative, who feels the need to censor herself due to the danger of being sent to what we colloquially refer to as Facebook Jail: the 30-day ban.
And it’s a legitimate concern. Twice I’ve posted for Dave on his FB page during his 30-day bans.
And there are dozens of conservatives – some with tens of thousands of followers -- who have been permanently banned from Twitter and Facebook for a variety of reasons. For some, there has been no stated reason at all.
But I have to take my own advice.
[I]t’s up to each one of us low rollers to step into the breach that our high-rolling friends no longer occupy and make the fearful keep trembling. Take it to them.There's more than one way to keep from being muzzled. (See social media links below.)
Therefore I present our first interview.
Go ahead and subscribe! I'll keep most of them at the one dollar minimum for now. And don't forget: you can also make a one-time donation below.
Criticism is welcome. It's the only way to improve.
I'd like to see more of you step (back) into the breach, as well. They can't shut all of us up ...
Well, they could, but why make it easy for them?
