Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Snack Size Edition! – The Taco Cleanse and The Lemonade Cleanse…Which Are Both Real Things

The Snack Size edition of Eat! Drink! Smoke!  Tony Katz speaks with Fingers Malloy and April D. Gregory about the taco cleanse….which is a very real thing.

But it’s nothing compared to the lemonade cleanse, which involves drinking and eating nothing but lemonade made with maple syrup and cayenne pepper. Both Fingers and April have done it, and they say it really works.

And that you should definitely keep a bathroom nearby. Eat! Drink! Smoke! was recorded live at Blend Bar Cigar in Indianapolis.

261 – Dana Perino of Fox News Joins Tony in-Studio To Talk Midterms and Civility, Rep. Mark Meadows Explains Why Sen. Joe Donnelly Was Wrong On The Iran Deal

Tony Katz speaks with FOX News host and former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino, in studio, about the midterms and how she views the relationship between the press and current Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC 11) calls in to talk about congressional priorities, how the US will deal with Saudi Arabia and whether Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly was right to side with the Iran Nuclear Deal.

260 – One Week From The Midterms, Here’s The Roundup. Sarah Huckabee Sanders Holds Strong And Did Trump Just Say Birthright Citizenship?

The Midterms are a week away; who will win control? Well, according to Tony Katz, no one knows. It looks like the Republicans will keep the Senate, but the House is up for grabs. Perhaps the Kavanaugh Effect has worn off. Perhaps, with early voting, it was enough to hand Republicans control through 2020.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responds firmly to ABC’s Jon Karl and CNN’s Jim Acosta and their accusation that President Trump has not said/done enough after the murder of eleven people in Pittsburgh by an anti-Semite.

And what’s all this about birthright citizenship? And what’s all this about a rise in anti-Semitism in the US?

259 – The Pittsburgh Shooting Shows The Depths Of The Political Divide, and People Forget About The Lives Lost. Blexit Is Real and A Father/Son Duo Dresses Like Hitler For Halloween

Tony Katz addresses the murder of eleven people in Pittsburgh by an anti-Semite who thought President Trump was controlled by Jews. Immediately, the murders have been politicized, with people blaming President Trump for creating a “toxic” environment. But what about the lives lost, and what about not losing more lives?

Brandon Straka got 5000 people to show up to the WalkAway march. Kanye West is working on BLEXIT; Black Exit….from the Democratic Party. Speaking of, the Indiana Democratic Party is getting very desperate, sending out mailers trying to convince Republicans to vote for the Libertarian candidate.

And a father and his 5 year-old son dressed as Hitler and an SS officer for Halloween. Yeah. We wish we were making that up, too.

On this Snack Size edition of Eat! Drink! Smoke! Tony Katz speaks with Fingers Malloy and April D. Gregory about the recent addition to the Buffalo Wild Wings menu

Buffalo Wild Wings has recently begun serving pumpkin bbq wings. The question? Why? Why is everything pumpkin all the time in the fall?

Or, is it just a fun novelty, and people should just give it a shot?

256 – The Political Violence Has Gotten Beyond Stupid, Check In On Your Kids And Social Media And Roman Reigns Will Force An Important Conversation

The violence in politics, and directed at politicians, continues, and Tony Katz continues to explain why it is unworthy of all of us. The latest involves a bomb being sent to the New York home of billionaire and Progressive supporter George Soros.

A child died from playing the choking game. Tony discusses the need to be aware of your kids presence on social media, and discusses his own experiences with online trolls and haters.

WWE star Roman Reigns abdicates his title because his leukemia has returned. Parents, get ready to talk to your kids about it…because they are going to ask about it.

Tony Katz invites Indiana Senator Todd Young in-studio to discuss the Saudi situation and the impending immigrant caravan.

Sen. Young is firm in his belief that the murder of Jamal Khashoggi can not go unpunished, and that the Saudis need the US far more than the US needs the Saudis.

On the caravan, Tony asks Sen. Young if this can be seen as an invading force, and what can the US do about it? The two also discuss the Indiana senate race.

254 – Scott Baio Says Roseanne Will Be Back, and Talks Trump The Fighter/Teacher

Actor and producer Scott Baio talked to Tony Katz about the ratings of Roseanne without Roseanne. Will we see her return to the show?

And what has President Trump really given the Republican party? He taught them how to fight. They didn’t talk cigars this time. We’re as shocked as you are.
