271 – Twitter Censorship Gets Ridiculous, and John Kasich Really Thinks He Can Be President

A woman was suspended from using Twitter because she said a man is not a woman. This has Tony Katz wondering what exactly the purpose of Twitter’s action really is? Stoping “hate” or censoring speech? This leads to a personal conversation of depression and suicidal thoughts.

General Motors is reducing their workforce by 15%. Why? The times are changing, and no one wants cars anymore. Sutdents in Wisconsin took a photo giving the Nazi salute. They’re not Nazis, however. They’re just morons, and this photo will haunt them forever.

Ohio Governor John Kasich is seriously considering running for the presidential nomination against President Trump.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Episode 13 – Sarah Michelle Geller Did Not Fat Shame You, and the Caravan Isn’t Getting An Honest Debate

Also, the migrant caravan has been turned into a political football, and that helps no one. Lives are at stake, and we shouldn’t avoid the conversation of what this caravan is and what it means for the United States because mainstream media refuses to have it.

And Sarah Michelle Geller – you know, Buffy The Vampire Slayer – is hot. And when she posts pictures of herself in lingerie, it’s not fat shaming.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! was recorded at Blend Bar Cigar in Indianapolis, IN.

QUICK HIT! – The Creepy Line is real, and Facebook and Google don’t care about it at all

American psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein tells Tony Katz how Facebook and Google exploit everything you do online, whether you like it or not.

The documentary, The Creepy Line, breaks down exactly how social media companies market users to advertisers, and how they manipulate users to do what they want.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Snack Size! – When Did Marriage Proposals Get So Ridiculous, and When Will It Stop?

The Snack Size edition of Eat! Drink! Smoke! Host Tony Katz talks touchdowns. Well, really, why it is that athletes can’t just score and then head back to the sidelines? Celebrations are one thing, but the taunting is just pathetic.

And when did marriage proposals get so completely out of control? And when does it stop? Tony talks with Fingers Malloy and April D. Gregory about the cultural madness.

QUICK HIT – An Inside Look At Dem Rep. Eric Swalwell’s Dystopian Fantasy Of Forced Gun Confiscation In America

Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA) wrote an op-ed at USA Today where he called for a mandatory gun buy-back on “assault weapons.” In his headline, he also stated that America should go after, “resisters.”

When Twitter users pushed back against this idea, Rep. Swalwell chided them, saying the US government has “nukes,” so it’s not like Americans could fight back.

Tony Katz takes a look at this idea, and explains how Rep. Swalwell has never thought through his idea. Tony explains the pitfalls, impossibilities and flat-out madness of his ugly, anti-American idea. Then, Tony takes us down the ‘what if?’ road. If Rep. Swalwell tried to take America’s guns, here’s the dystopian reality he would bring to the nation.

With Thanksgiving coming up, is it ok to go out to eat for the holiday? And how much should it cost you to make the meal? Fingers and April have a serious disagreement about how much to spend on the family.

Medical tourism is a real thing. But if you go to Mexico for a nose job, you’re on your own. And Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) wants your guns, and demands that you fall in line…or he’ll nuke you. Exactly how would gun confiscation work in America? It’s clear that Rep. Swalwell has never thought through his own terrible ideas.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! was recorded at Blend Bar Cigar in Indianapolis, IN. Joining Tony are radio host Fingers Malloy and social media maven and podcaster April D. Gregory.

268 – Michael Avenatti arrested for domestic violence, but don’t cheer. Letters To The Editor never disappoint.

Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti was arrested for domestic violence. Tony Katz is no fan; he thinks Avenatti is a liar and a jerk. However, allegations are nothing to cheer. They need to be investigated. So why are so many overjoyed that he was arrested? A woman may have been abused, or he may have been wrongly accused. “Investigation first,” says Tony. “There are plenty of other reasons – proven reasons – to despise him.”

Senator Chuck Schumer thinks Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida should be re-elected, no matter the vote count. (Basically, he said that.) And a look at Letters To The Editor.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Snack Size! – KFC Has Chicken and Waffles and Millennials Want Haunted Houses

The Snack Size edition of Eat! Drink! Smoke! is focused on chicken and waffles! Tony Katz speaks with Fingers Malloy and April D. Gregory about the new menu item at KFC.

Extra crispy chicken. Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup. Belgian-style waffles. How could it be better? Fingers has an idea that includes dessert items from a vending machine.

Millennials are most willing to purchase a haunted house. April needs her house smudged, and wait til you hear the gruesome reason why!

267 – Melania Trump wants someone fired, so what’s the big deal? Monica Lewinsky is back in the news. Does anyone really want that?

The Florida recount is a mess. Why? Because it’s not about a recount. It’s about whether or not we count legal votes alone. Tony Katz can’t believe he has to explain this to people, but here we are.

First Lady Melania Trump wants Deputy NSA Mira Ricardel fired because of the way Ricardel treated her staff, and potential leaks the deputy made that were disparaging to the First Lady.

Monica Lewinsky is in the news, making a docu-series about her sexual relationship with former President Bill Clinton. Are we supposed to care? Are we supposed to give Bill a pass? And the military needs serious upkeep.

QUICK HIT – FOX News Sides With CNN, No One Has Claimed $1.5 Billion and Amazon Echo Hears All

There is a lot of crazy stuff going down in America, and not all of it has to do with FLorida recounts and Maxine Waters!

Tony Katz has three stories that are must hear: Fox News is defending CNN in their lawsuit against the Trump White House over Jim Acosta’s press pass. A billion dollar lottery ticket has yet to be claimed, which means someone needs to check behind grandma’s couch!

And, Amazon Echo is listening to you, and may have listened to a murder.
