Idiotville: Erie, PA’s Favorite Podcast

Sep 20 2020 55 mins 13

Welcome to Idiotville - Erie, PA’s Liberal Conscience: We want you to be better, Erie. But you just keep screwing it up. Every time someone opens their mouth with a good idea, someone has to have a reason why not. That reason usually isn’t very well thought out, it usually involves thinly (or not so thinly) veiled racism. This town can move forward, but until we confront the demons that lurk here, we aren’t going anywhere. If you don’t like what we’ve got to say, come at us with a good take. Think it all the way out. Our podcast is here to take political discourse in this city in a completely different direction.The Idiotville Crew is Brent N Liberty, Jake News, Dill Spears, Marty Balawkay and very occasionally, Ted Brogan & Mrs Spears.

Idiotville 94: Rust & Dirt Redux
Mar 15 2020 62 mins  
Jake News, Marty Balawkay, Steve Castle (via phone)We have in-studio guest Jonathan Burdick, from Erie Reader and the excellent local history blog, Rust & Dirt (@RustDirt)COVID-19 Chatter (This was recorded before the president declared a state of emergency, so the tone is probably a bit lighter than we would like, apologies.)Marty discusses his recent hospitalization and how he's doing. We have a brief talk about tolls and how different states handle them. Apparently, Massachusetts sends you a bill, and New Jersey charges you more to leave. Jonathan gives us a great back story about Ed Gingrich, the schizophrenic Amish man from the Cambridge Springs area who murdered his wife in an incredibly brutal manner.The Beer Segment: Madra Alta from Lavery Brewing Company (xx/5) It can only be found locally at Lavery Brewing, and we think Jake got the last of this batch, sadly. The guys talk more about Gingrich, plus some other famous murderers that have shown in the Erie area through the years. www.patreon.com/idiotvillepodcastOur theme song is composed and performed by Warehouse 11: Guitars by Brian Blake, drums by Dave Blake, bass by Chris Owochttps://www.facebook.com/Warehouse11Band/ http://www.warehouseelevenband.yolasite.com/www.idiotvillepodcast.comwww.facebook.com/idiotvillepodcastinstagram: idiotvillepodcastTwitter: @BrentNLibery, @ErieScastle, @TheRealJakeNew1, @Dill_spears, @TedBrogan2, @[email protected] our Facebook group!
