This past weekend, I spoke with Tony and have confirmed that he has been approached about […]Read more ›

Our very own LOLGOP recorded one of Tony Trupiano’s increasingly popular podcast series this past week. They talked about the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid expansion among other things.

We covered the gamut from success stories to sabotage, shedding light on topics some media outlets are ignoring. I was delighted to be a guest on Tony Trupiano’s podcast series, which he’s running until he’s fully recovered from surgery and back to hosting the “Night Shift with Tony Trupiano” radio show. The initial focus was my Obamacare success story, which […]Read more ›
Tony Trupiano’s “Night Shift with Tony Trupiano” radio show has been off the air for the past couple weeks as he recovers from some major surgery. He’s not fully back on his feet yet but is recording podcasts as he finishes healing up. It’s a delightful alternative to the constraints of a 30-minute segment which compresses our conversations into two […]Read more ›
Empowering progressives across the state
I was on the Night Shift with Tony Trupiano radio show last night and we had more fun than usual. Tony was in rare form and incredibly flattering about the work we do here at Eclectablog. We covered a wide range of topics from the addition of Michigan Teacher of the Year Gary Abud to Team Eclectablog to Republicans in The Hypocrisy Zone with a little campaign finance reform activism and Tom McMillin grandstanding thrown in.

As Amy mentioned yesterday, she and I both “appeared” on the Night Shift with Tony Trupiano Show last night. Both of us were pretty fired up about the egregious behavior of the Republican Party which can’t decide if its overlords are the libertarian Tea Partarians or the Corporatists.

Hero of the Year more like it
The same day that my good friends Rochelle Noel and Betsy Coffia and their team were pulling off a highly successful rally to support public education in Michigan, Gary Abud was being crowned as the Michigan 2013-2014 Teacher of the Year. My interview with Gary last week has created what I think is an important conversation about merit pay and the use of Gary’s story and situation against his will to support an agenda he does not support.
Dale Hansen who blogs for the Detroit News wrote what I think is an important piece titled “Teacher of the Year: The merit pay disconnect” and was on Tony Trupiano’s Night Shift radio show to discuss it.
Last night, Gary Abud himself was on Tony’s show. It’s a fantastic interview and gives you real sense of just how eloquent, smart, and talented Mr. Abud is. Enjoy after the jump.Read more ›
