Heidi Harris Show Podcast #115: Keeping social media friendly

Social media has become more of a time suck than ever before. Not that there’s no value in some of what social media has to offer, but you have to get control of it, or it will run your life. You can take advantage of the benefits without losing your mind. In today’s podcast, I provide some tips for doing that.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #114: Serena Williams’ controversy is deeper than tennis

Serena Williams, who, along with her sister Venus, will go down in history as among the best tennis players, had a meltdown at the U.S.Open which has created controversy. She has been portrayed as a sore loser, and at the very least, her outburst took away some of the joy her opponent should have had in beating her.

There’s more than meets the eye here. Serena is trying to be everything to everyone, and that never works. Women have believed the lie for far too long that you can do anything you want to, and you can’t. Not at the same time.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #113: Jacky Rosen waffles on Min Wage

Congresswoman Jacky Rosen who wants to be our next Senator, was recently schooled by small business owners on the REAL impact of raising the minimum wage. Of course her campaign’s official stance is that she wants people to have “dignity” at work. I have news for you, Jacky: there’s dignity in ANY honorable work. Big business cannot “afford to absorb” higher wages any more than small business, Jacky. Economics 101.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #112: McCain Memorial Fiasco

Whatever happened to Rest in Peace? The McCain memorial was a fiasco, without the least shred of dignity. There’s more to life than settling scores, and after you die, trust me, that will be the last thing you’re thinking about in Heaven (or elsewhere). I have lost all respect for the McCain family for allowing the attacks on Trump to overshadow everything else in John McCain’s life. I can promise you no one would behave that way at MY funeral.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #111: Conservatives abandoning Facebook?

Yes, it’s true. Conservatives are leaving Facebook, and now there have been two more lawsuits against Facebook for selling users’ date to outside companies without permission. As long as people like to present a “highlight reel” of their lives to the world, Facebook or something like it will exist, but between the continuing conservative censorship and the privacy of EVERYONE being breached, Facebook is in for a rough road ahead.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #110: New CCSD “School Justice Partnership”

The CCSD has now voted to implement a new system, the “School Justice Partnership” to keep kids out of trouble, which in reality does nothing to improve anyone’s behavior. Allowing offenses like destroying property or larceny to be handled with “intervention” and “support” leaves out the well-behaved kids and the taxpayers, who have a right to pay for schools that function correctly. If the focus is to prepare kids for life, they need to realize that poor behavior isn’t going to serve them well. A swat on the tush won’t do it.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #109: Steven Long, POW/hero who passed away, and thoughts on John McCain

I recently attended the Memorial service for a true hero, Major Steven Long, who had a lifetime of distinguished service in our Air Force, and was held captive in Southeast Asia for five years. It was a room full of amazing people, the likes of which this country will never see again. It was truly humbling.

And I have a few comments about the passing of John McCain….

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #108: If you’re Dying, take care of business

Most of us don’t know when we’ll die, but if you do know about your impending death, take care of business. It’s a kindness to those you leave behind.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #106: Finding a balance in your life

I juste read about yet another talk how host who died suddenly in his 60’s. This has happened to many people I know, (some of whom aren’t in radio), but it seems to happening with greater frequency. We all need to strike a balance in our lives, and too few people people today are doing that. There’s no point in “killing yourself” so you can retire, if you’re literally killing yourself.
