One Million Listeners Can't Be Wrong!

Sometimes you gotta mix in the funny with a little bit of the serious y’all. That’s what we did on IWS Radio this week. Sure, we brought the funny as usual with our wild and wacky stories and some help from our correspondents as always, but there were also some moments of seriousness from a caller. Matt and Jay are professionals though, so they were able to roll right along with the funny and the serious. Just as you would expect.

Matt shared another “never happened before” story from the Beer Mine. (Conveniently located at the corner of Elmore and Burnett Rds in Bagwine, Ohio.)

Jay shared his saddest and most unfortunate story from his quest to meet a potential life partner on Facebook.

Some impromptu advice on how NOT to apply for a job.

Jamies Winston seems to be a little out of touch with reality. Maybe he put on his uniform in his mother’s car outside the stadium?

Woooooooo Pig Soooooie

Don’t be afraid to run a naked bootleg every once in a while.

And interview with our 1,000,000th listener Babatunde Campore who lives in Burkina Faso!

Whistling “God Bless America”

Discussing fears both real and imagined. Serial killers, raw poultry, dark and stormy nights, fear of success AND failure, dying alone, loneliness, rejection and on and on and on.

Took a call from the lovely and talented Scarlett Letters. Scarlett shared some of her fears. Many of those fears were the same as some of Jay’s fears!

How Matt and Jay overcame their fears and anxieties to start IWS Radio

An interesting call from Mark of Global Political Awareness where he talked about spiritual awakening and dealing with dangers all over the world.

Then Jamie Mapleleaf called and brought the charm as always!

Simon and Garfunkle closed us out!

What a show! You gotta check it out y’all!

IWS Person(s) of the Week...Five Fearless Folks

At least in the realm of IWS Radio, today is “Always Do What You Are Afraid To Do Day.”  Both on the IWS website and on our radio show from Noon-2 PM ET later today, today is the day to admit our fears and begin a process in overcoming them.

Today of course is also Sunday, which means it’s time for the IWS Person(s) of the Week, and this week we honor five people who overcame their fears and went on to greatness…

Socrates…This great Greek philosopher was unabashedly firm in his belief of his philosophical teachings. The Greek powers that be were not impressed.  Socrates was arrested and after he refused to change his beliefs, he was killed.  Socrates learned that while the pen might be mightier than the sword, it is no match for hemlock.

Queen Boudicca…In the year 60 A.D., Boudicca led a revolt of Britons against the forces of Roman occupation.  While men on the British Isle remained as gay as the French are today, she led them into battle and nearly defeated the empirical Roman forces, but alas…it is presumed by the IWS research team that pre-menstrual cramps may have negatively affected her military acumen at a crucial time.

Frederick Douglass…The Fredster risked death to escape his life as a slave and wound up in New York to become one of the most effective and artful orators and writers of all-time as he wailed against the practice of slavery. When he died in 1895, he died knowing that all of our racial problems in the United States were behind us.

Maximilian Kolbe…During the Nazi occupation of Poland, Fr. Kolbe offered shelter to Polish Jews.  After being arrested twice by the Nazis, he was shipped to Auschwitz where he offered himself up and was killed in place of a Jew who was to be exterminated.  It was the last time a Catholic has ever offered up his body for something that wasn’t illegal.

Mikhail Gorbachev…Many people think highly of Mr. Gorbachev for having the courage to help lead the Soviet Union on the path to democracy, actually…He showed greater courage for going out in public with that big red stain thang on his head.

And there you have it folks…Five great people throughout history who have let loose their fears and have shown great courage.  You can do the same, and Jay, Matt, and the IWS Radio team are here to help.

Listen to IWS Radio today LIVE from Noon-2 PM ET on Blog Talk Radio as we together admit our fears, face our fears, and work to overcome them as IWS Radio presents the, “Always Do What You Are Afraid To Do” episode.

J-Lo and Iggy's Booties LOVE IWS Radio!

Matt-Man and Jayman are a bit concerned about some of you people. Apparently, some of are willing to just let your fears run your lives. "I would have called in, but I was afraid to." Really? Why? "I'm afraid someone will say something mean about me?" Yeah? Well what if they do? Why do you care? Some anonymous jerk on the internet doesn't like you? Fuck 'em!

Look, we get it. It's hard to put yourself out there. There are lots of trolls and a-holes out there looking to say mean things. Maybe you WILL say something stupid. We all do! That's part of life. We have to stop being so scared of every little bitty thing. We have to overcome our fears and just do it.

IWS is here for you. Matt and Jay are going to help you overcome your fears and finally do whatever it is you've wanted to do. Want to write? You're welcome to post on anytime. Want to speak your mind? 661.244.9852. What to record it or maybe record a song? Hit us up. We'll help you do it and play here on IWS.

Matt and Jay understand your fears cause we have them too. Sometimes fear wins, but you can't just give up. We'll be talking fears from the very real to the imaginary, but real to us. Call us up and share your fears and how you overcame your own fears. This might be our most inspiring show ever. Or something.

That's "Always Do What You're Afraid To Do" on IWS Radio Sunday at 12 Noon ET!!!
