Heidi Harris Show Podcast #173: What parent do or don’t owe their adult children

Why are so many adult children today acting so entitled? The more parents give them, the worse they are often treated by their ungrateful offspring. After witnessing the manipulation and guilt adult children lay on their parents, Linda Herman, a retired psychotherapist, has written a great book on the subject, entitled “Parents to the End”. She even includes a “Parents’ Bill of Rights” in the book. My chat with her was fascinating.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #172: Do what you can with what you have, where you are

Teddy Roosevelt was quoted as saying, “Do what you can with what you have, where you are”. Great advice, and something I continue to tell myself when I don’t have the all tools I think I need to succeed. Like most people, there are aspects of my job that are out of my control.

Whether you’re a politician, a general, a musician, or a talk show host, you will at times be hindered by disinterested staff, small budgets, or poor leadership. And if you’re a person like me, who wants to make everything better, that can be a tough pill to swallow. If your name is on the show or the building, it’s worse.

Learn to do what you can with what you have, and smile when you’re asked about things you have no ability to correct. And a glass of wine might help.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #171: We’re too busy fighting each other to recognize the TRUE enemy

These days we are allowing others to define who the enemy should be and spend so much of our time fighting over social media posts, politics, race, etc., that we’ve lost sight of who the enemy really is. My guest, Pastor Darrell Porter, joined me to discuss the realities of a world in which we’ve lost focus on the real issues, and what that will mean for us.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #170: Guest – Dr. Michael Brown on Jezebel’s influence on America today

Dr. Michael Brown is a favorite guest of mine. He’s Jewish by heritage, but a Believer in Christ. He’s columnist, radio host and speaker. His latest book, “Jezebel’s War With America” has a lot of great information on how the attitudes and evil attitudes that were at work with the Biblical Jezebel and alive and well today. We discussed the evangelicals who still can’t accept Trump as President, and how we can combat the “Jezebel spirit” in America!



Heidi Harris Show Podcast #169: Red Flag laws will never replace moral courage

Red Flag laws are being discussed as the “solution” to prevent more mass shootings, and they already exist in various jurisdictions. But a recent case in New Jersey was a perfect example of why those laws won’t ever replace moral courage. A nanny and her employer were murdered by her ex-boyfriend, and neighbors saw him hanging around the house, stalking her, for weeks, yet never called anyone. And many of the mass shooters we hear about had enablers providing them weapons. Common sense is not replaced by LAWS.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #168: Social media’s censorship and the effect on talk radio

How are radio hosts across the country responding to the censorship and “shadow banning” of conservative hosts on social media? I have certainly experienced it firsthand, and it’s annoying to say the least. Should we let these triggered lefty brats in Silicon Valley shut us down? How can today’s radio and podcast hosts navigate the waters?

For insight on how it’s affecting the industry as a whole, and what other radio hosts are saying, I turned to Michael Harrison, Publisher of Talkers’ Magazine, the #1 trade publication for talk radio. He’s always a fascinating guest.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #167: If you refuse to date transgenders, are you “dehumanizing” them?

Transgendered people have a suicide rate 25 times higher than the general public, (41%) and now we have an “expert” claiming that when straight people don’t want to date them it’s “dehumanizing”, and may be contributing to their unhappiness. Now trans people have a “right” to companionship? The rest of us are responsible for their health and wellbeing?

I think we all know that if you want a partner, you need to make yourself as desirable and attractive as possible. People make choices, people have varying tastes, and they’re not “(fill in the blank) phobic” because they do.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #166: Burly Man Coffee helps single moms

Burly Man Coffee not only rejects the characterization of masculinity as “toxic”, they help single moms by giving them cars! This is what effective charity is all about.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #165: Clearly false statement not being questioned by reporter

We all know that journalism today is in a race to the bottom. The bias is obvious. Most reporters hate Trump, and that’s their right as human beings, but they should at least feign objectivity.

When a local women made a statement at a Kamala Harris rally, about how her son died six years ago because he didn’t have insurance, the reporter NEVER asked for any details. “How is that possible, lady, when Obamacare was in place then?” He didn’t have insurance, or he didn’t choose to buy it? Of course the “journalist” never asked, because her quote fit his narrative, and that was good enough for him. That would get an F in any first year Journalism class. This from the largest newspaper in Nevada. This is how bad it’s gotten. Embarrassing.

Heidi Harris Show #164: #metoo women who falsely accuse are hurting all of us

, ,

Although #metoo women have legitimate complaints in some cases, and I certainly have my LEGITIMATE story about it, (you can read about it on my blog at heidiharris.com), but the movement has damaged women in the workplace. Like any other movement, it started out as an outlet for genuine victims, and has since been hijacked by man haters and false accusers. Now many executives don’t want to mentor women for fear of being accused of something they can’t disprove. This not only hurts the women who want to succeed professionally, obviously, but the larger issue is that false accusers hurt genuine victims, who are now getting lost in the shuffle.
