#081 – 9/11 Never Forget

In this special edition episode of the Spun Today Podcast, you’ll hear a collection of first hand experiences, from New Yorkers that lived through the events of 9/11.  Memories are fleeting and have a way of fading away into a once-upon-a-time haze that we seldom revisit and when we do, they just seem like surreal experiences.  I think that an important component to history not repeating itself, is continuing to share and speak about our learned experiences.  Where were you during the events of 9/11?

Special thanks to: Jacey Rosa, to my Father, to David Ortiz, Janet Velez, Yudy Azurdia, Raul Azurdia, Zoila Ortiz, Elaine Almonte & Steven Almonte.

#064 – Random Rant

In this premier episode of 2017, I speak about & recap UFC 207 (I know, I know, it’s been spoken about at nauseam - but here’s my take on it anyway).  I also speak about finally finishing Season 2 of Mr. Robot, watching two movies; Snowden & Kramer vs. Kramer.  I also did some Netflix & Chill over the Holidays and saw: Colin Quinn: NY Story, Evolution of Hip Hop & the documentary Rats … and this just in, Jim Gaffigan has a new Comedy Special on Netflix called: Cinco.
