This week, we started by talking ’2014. After that we moved on to a lively discussion on Florida’s 2nd measure on the ballot this November and marijuana in general. It’s a busy week, so that’s all the description there is this week. As always, catch the replay after the break. Keep it locked.

This week, we were joined by a very special guest: Louis Chan, from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Louis spoke with us about the recent political unrest brewing in Hong Kong dubbed the “umbrella revolution” and we got the chance to ask him some questions to better understand what was happening. I had bumped in to Louis at an event the previous night on the topic of the umbrella revolution and he agreed to come on the show, so special thanks again to him for doing so on such short notice.

After that, we started with discussing the College Republicans’ “Say Yes to the Dress” parody commercial and kind of slid into abortion unprepared (we didn’t have Nicole to provide a female perspective).

Nevertheless I think it worked out well. As always, catch the replay after the break. Keep it locked.

This week, we talked about Eric Holder’s resignation and then we wandered off topic quite a bit, touching on Ferguson, and even on poverty and the minimum wage. Then we touched on education reform to round out the show. That’s all I’ve got this week: it’s first-test/paper-of-the-semester week! As always, catch the replay after the break. Keep it locked.

This week, we talked the obvious: Scotland’s vote. Admittedly, all of us on the show had little if any personal stake in the matter, but it was still fun to consider what could have been. Then we moved on to the Ray Rice scandal and other prominent football players’ recent dealings with the media and domestic abuse allegations. That’s all for the description!

This week, due to some unfortunate turns of events, Jordan and Nicole were unable to make the show. So instead we had Counterpoint: Mike and Mike edition. We started by talking about the saddening news that Shalala was retiring from being the president of The U. We then talked about Iraq and ISIS (ISIL this week, subject to change). We then discussed Net Neutrality much to my pleasure due to a viewer request from last week (yay!). We then moved to talking about the Ray Rice situation and back to ISIS due to another viewer text-in. We finished with a talk about a documentary Mike Fuentes found out about a little while ago called “Fed Up” and back to ISIS in the context of global security from another viewer text.

This week, we had our full roster: Jordan, Mike (Fuentes), and Nicole. We started by talking about the ISIS beheading of journalist Sotloff and the U.S.-Iraqi relationship in general. We then moved to discussing the Jennifer Lawrence and other celebrities’ nude photo hack/leak from earlier this week. We got into quite the discussion, and will likely be revisiting this topic in the near future. As always, hit the jump after the break to catch the recording. Keep it locked.

Due to some untimely interferences this week, we were back to Counterpoint: Mike & Mike edition. We started by talking about the upcoming Florida governor race. We then moved to get Mike Fuentes’ opinion in ISIS and the situation in Iraq, as he was unavailable for a few weeks previously. We finished with Mike Fuentes’ view on the Ferguson incident and gun control in general. As always, catch the replay after the break. Keep it locked.

This week, we talked about the Bank of America settlement, the Ferguson situation, and ISIS in relation to the beheading of journalist Foley. This was the last show of the summer, so look forward to a fully-fleshed-out panel this week! As always, catch the replay after the break and keep it locked.

This week was Alex’s last with us for the summer, and since everyone else was out of town, it was just the two of us in the studio. We started with David Beckham’s recent proposal to bring soccer to Miami and concluded that it would likely be a good fit for the city. Alex wanted listeners to text-in and suggest topics, so the next two — Israel/Palestine and Iraq– were listener-suggested. We started with Israel and possible band-aid fixes moving forward following operation Protective Edge and seemed to be in agreement that peace in the region was still quite a ways off. As for the ISIS encroachment in Iraq, we debated the role the U.S. should play and whether or not we retain our title of “police of the world.” We’ll miss him, but there’s always Winter Break and next summer!

Apologies in advance for the audio this week: due to technical bugs, the first minute or so was cut off. Catch the replay after the break. Keep it locked.

This week, we talked about the pending House suit against President Obama over his alleged over-reach using his executive powers, and some general Presidential powers discussion too. Afterwards, we moved to immigration and posited some ideas about how reform might work, and Alex and Mike Fuentes gave their views on illegal immigration and what “reform” should look like. The topic kind of wandered a bit, turning the show in to Fox and Friends: College Radio edition, but I think it went well overall. We ended with a talk about Ray Rice’s domestic violence case and professional athlete misbehavior in general. Catch a replay after the break. Keep it locked.
