The HPV controversy revisited with more information and a medical perspective (E-147)

It’s controversial. The HPV vaccine. Some say it will prevent cancer. Others are not so sure. In the summer of 2018 (41 episodes ago) we spoke with Josh Mazer, an Annapolis resident, who questions the vaccine’s effectiveness, the studies behind it, and the manner in which it is marketed.

His episode was controversial to say the least.

We were contacted by the producers of the 2014 film, Someone You Love: The HPV Epidemic refuting much of what Mazer said. We offered to do an additional podcast from their point of view; yet never received a reply.

But there are two sides to each story. So here we are!

In the past year, Mazer has continued his research and has more doubts and questions. We brought in Dr. Michael Freedman from Evolve Medical Clinics to balance it out and offer a medical perspective.

This episode, is a little ok, who are we kidding, it’s a LOT long, but compelling as the two confront and rebuke each other.

In the end, the controversy continues and the general consensus is that the HPV shot (like any vaccine) should be a decision made by parents and their children’s doctors.

One important takeaway is that we all agree that pharmaceutical companies should NOT be incentivizing medical practitioners to sell their drugs!

Sit back, and have a listen!

A Conversation About The Village At Providence Point (E-146)

In May of 2017 we spoke with Larry Bradshaw who is the CEO of National Lutheran Communities & Services and the man behind the project now known as The Village at Providence Point in Annapolis.  Today, we check in with Bradshaw as the project starts to gel up and move through the approval process.

Today we learned that they are accepting deposits (more than 100 so far) and construction could begin in early 2021. They have addressed the four main issues their opponents have cited–traffic, environment, drainage, and tree canopy. And they have been working with the City to address their most recent submission and the comments surrounding it.

While on the same property, this is NOT anywhere close to the same project as Crystal Springs. Along with a change of names to The Village at Providence Point, this project has been downsized in the number of residents and in the general footprint of the project.

Have a listen!

Encore: Getting proud with Annapolis Pride (E-139)

June is LBGTQ Month and Annapolis is gearing up for its first LGBTQ Pride Parade & Festival on Saturday, June 29th. To gear up for this momentous event, we present an encore presentation of our interview earlier this spring with organizer and Board Chair of Annapolis Pride, Jeremy Browning.

Annapolis Pride!  It’s a relatively new organization that has burst on the scene in a big way. Last year they had a Pride March for the LBGTQ+ community. And this year there will be a Pride Parade and Festival in Annapolis.  Look for a Pride Night at the Bowie Baysox and many more events and gatherings.

We’re proud (pardon the pun) to have the Annapolis Pride magnet on the back of our car and to support ALL of our neighbors.

Have a listen as we talk to the man behind the organization– Jeremy Browning!

Mike Pantelides…Rested and Ready! (E-135)

It’s been almost a year and a half since he left the Mayor’s Office, but Mike Pantelides is back with The Maryland Crabs and he has a lot to say about the last election, his term as mayor, and the current city administration. Is he going to run for office again in the city or does he have designs on higher office? John and Tim tactlessly badger him about his future plans.

This week, John sits down with Pastors Greg St. Cyr and Pat Linnell to talk about the Bay Area Community Church. It’s one of the largest in the area. And, as we learned, nothing quite like old-school church.

Join us on this episode (one of John’s favorites to date) and hear all about a different kind of church.
