AmeriNZ 160 – Thisandthat

amerinz_podcast_150x150I finally have my schedule for Pride 48! I have a special announcement about that, too. After that, I have updates about stuff I’ve talked about before, including one where you hear about a super-secret test website. I have a Jake story, too. I have a few words to say about podcasters, then it’s on to a special feature: Another Last Word for the Week.

I will be live streaming on Pride 48 at 3AM EST (USA) Saturday, June 27. That’s 2AM Chicago time, Midnight Pacific time, 7pm Auckland, 5pm Sydney and 8am London.

  1. I can’t agree more about the wonderful world of podcasting and how it has changed my life. From the friends I have made to the wonderful guests I get to talk with and the amazing listeners who have been so supportive of me and my show.

    You are one of those people as well – I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your friendship and your wonderful relationship with Nigel.

    I loved your story about Jake and glad he is letting Nigel get some sleep! 🙂

    I am excited about Pride 48 and glad to be a part of it!

  2. I have to say, that I’ve really enjoyed getting to know you better through the interactive live podcasts and chats that you mentioned on this episode. Keep up the great work!

  3. Ramble Redhead: Aw, thanks! Yes, I think Pride 48 should be a lot of fun.

    Roger: You are correct. I just repeated what the site said, since I’m confused about who changes their clocks when. Pride 48, btw, will display the times in whatever time zone you want.

    LurryDean: Thanks! I actually think I value the connections I’ve made through podcasting than any episode I’ve done, even though I’m proud of many of them.

  4. More proof that, while the Obama admin doesn’t want to take on LGBT issues directly, it’s willing to trim around the edges. BTW, I TOTALLY agree that REPORTING the info doesn’t violate DOMA.


    White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs confirmed during a press briefing today that the Obama Administration was “determining the best way to ensure that gay and lesbian couples are accurately counted” in the 2010 census. The Wall Street Journal reported today that the Administration had directed the Census Bureau to explore ways to tabulate responses to the census relationship question, to produce data showing responses from married couples of the same sex.

    The Census Bureau decided during the Bush Administration that it would re-code same sex spouse responses as “unmarried partners,” citing provisions of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) that it believed prohibited the tabulation of data on marriages that are not between opposite sex couples, as well as concerns about data quality based on responses collected in the American Community Survey. Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL) sent a letter earlier this week to President Obama, urging the Administration to recognize same-sex marriages in the 2010 census. Rep. Quigley and more than 50 other members of the LGBT Congressional Equality Caucus wrote to the President last month, suggesting that the Bush Administration had misinterpreted the DOMA and saying that reporting statistical data on same-sex couples “simply provides basic information about how Americans respond to the Census Bureau’s questions” and “is not tantamount to federal recognition of same-sex marriage.”
