Josh and Lori get together for about 100 minutes every Wednesday to talk about the stuff in current events that makes us say "WTF?!?" Sometimes it's how the media's covering it. Sometimes it's how society's reacting to it. Mostly, it's just because we find the story interesting and want to talk about it.

Interesting Perspectives. Featherstone's best.
Although I'm not entirely aligned with their politics, the hosts offer an educated position. You can tell that they are passionate in their convictions and ready to defend their beliefs.
I haven't followed Featherstone through his entire career and, though I never listened to "The Uncontrollables", I think this is easily his best work since "Icy Cold, Steamy Hot".
Boze, a freshman to radio I believe, is effective in her challenges and seems well placed in her hosting duties.
With two little girls riding in the car, I'd prefer a clean show so I could listen while driving with them.
Needs more jingles and hate mail.
This is one you don't want to miss. Great commentary of current events. You owe it to yourself to give this one a listen.
