Rob Hunter did well helping a suicidal veteran

Rob Hunter did something great on Wednesday. We have covered the VA scandal in great detail over the past few months. We have spoken with the major players in D.C. and have taken our listeners inside the VA by interviewing those that have intimate knowledge of the system. But that is all it has been: […]

Shark bowfishing is a thing? Sign me up!f

SHARK! Wait! I’ve often sung the praises of an activity that combines two of my passions, bowhunting and fishing. Yes, bowfishing.

Nerd alert! ‘Star Wars’ bloopers video is here to rescue us!
