Former Mayo-St. Marys CEO Mike Myers has accomplished a lot in his long life. Besides his work in the medical industry, he has also been a journalist, radio host, and, most notably, a Healthcare Law Professor.
At the young age of 77, Myers is now entering politics, challenging incumbent Governor Dennis Daugaard in next year’s election. Myers joins Scott Hudson and Scott Ehrisman to discuss his reasons for entering the race, and his plans for changing the economics and politics of our state. He also puts his foot to his forehead, literally.
Hudson and Ehrisman also spend some time discussing local issues, including the recent fight to keep a giant Wal-Mart out of a residential area, and the controversial use of TIF’s to help finance so many of our city’s building projects.
Rant-a-Bit can be found in the ITunes store, and can also be streamed on Hudson’s iPhone/Android app, The Ledge. Or, you can…
Just a few days after his impressive win for the at-large seat in the Sioux Falls City Council, Kermit Staggers returned to the Rant-a-Bit studio to discuss various local issues. Besides congratulating him on his victory, Scott and Scott peppered Staggers with questions about city finances, the Event Center, his relationship with Mayor Mike Huether, and other pressing topics.
Downloading this episode is different than past shows, however, thanks to Mevio’s decision to no longer host audio shows. The easiest way to listen to the show? Download Hudson’s iPhone/Android app The Ledge and you can access not only all of the Rant a Bit episodes but also his music and Big Brother podcasts. Subscribing to the show in iTunes will take a little work, however, as the original Rant a Bit podcast is a dead link.
Social media consultant/Build It Downtown activist Andy Traub is our guest on this episode, and he gives us his expert testimony on many issues surrounding the Event Center. Unfortunately, Traub had to leave at the halfway mark, and after his departure Scott and I continued to talk about local and state issues. As with all episodes, you can download this via the iTunes store, or directly download it HERE!
• South DaCola is planning some reconstruction over the winter. New look and other fun stuff. Stay tuned.
• Our next Rant-A-Bit podcast will be recorded on December 6th. Scott and I have no planned guests, but if you would like to join us, drop us a line, we may be able to work something out. Pre-warning. Vodka and cussing (may) be involved.
• I have a meeting scheduled with Mayor Huether at his office on December 13th to chew the fat. I plan to give minutes of the meeting on South DaCola.
Episode #10 will be recorded on September 27 and I think will be one of our better shows. We have secured a major player in city politics (sorry, it’s not Janoct Ajda) for our guest. I encourage you to send us questions that have to do with city politics, mostly Events Center and infrastructure.
After a much longer delay than planned, we finally got together to record another episode of Rant-a-Bit With Scott and Scott. Our guests showed their expertise on a number of local issues, including the upcoming event center vote, infrastructure issues, snow gates, code enforcement, and so much more.
