In today's second hour, Dom leads off the Dom Giordano Program by discussing an article in the Inquirer about the negative implications of Uber and Lyft on the taxi industry, reflecting on the scene as cops on horseback tried to prevent the Uber and Lyft industry from first coming to Philadelphia. Giordano expresses his support for Uber and Lyft, telling that the two companies are a reflection of Capitalism and supply and demand. Then, Giordano tells about a release by Biden Chief of Staff Ron Klain which offers bullet points for conversations at the Thanksgiving table centered around promoting the Biden administration, with Dom explaining why he feels all political conversation should be left off the table.

As of October 2022, there have been 11 films that continue or reimagine the story of the character known as “The Shape” that was first laid out in John Carpenter's Halloween released in 1978. At this point in its history, the Halloween franchise has been rebooted once (by Rob Zombie in 2007) and retconned twice (by Halloween H20 in 1998 and then by Halloween in 2018), creating no less than four different continuities. After the release of “Halloween III: Season of the Witch” in 1982 became a box office and fanbase disappointment, this 80's Flick was the first to bring back the horror icon that is Michael Myers. So lock the doors, pull out your red and white clown costume, and pick up a new William Shatner mask from the local drug store as Tim Williams and guest co-host, Charlie Cotter, discuss “Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers” from 1988 on this episode of the 80's Flick Flashback Podcast! Here are some additional behind the scenes trivia we were unable to cover in this episode: Danielle Harris revealed in 25 Years of Terror, when her character runs through the neighborhood screaming for help someone legitimately called the cops, "I was banging on doors, yelling for someone to help me, help me, after I got lost trick or treating or something. So, 4 o'clock in the morning, they're hearing a little screaming up the streets, and someone called the cops. The cops came. Then the story ended up in The Inquirer that I was almost kidnapped off of the set.” Sources: Wikipedia, IMDB, Rotten Tomatoes https://decider.com/2021/10/19/halloween-4-the-return-of-michael-myers-tribute/ Send us an email or reach out to us on social media to let us know what you liked, what you loved, what we may have missed, or what 80's movie we should discuss next!

Full Hour | In today's third hour, Dom welcomes Maureen Faulkner, widow of slain police officer Daniel Faulkner, back onto the Dom Giordano Program after being a guest of Doctor Mehmet Oz's during last night's debate. Today, Daniel's murderer, Mumia Abu Jamal, faced another hearing as his supporters continue to try and get him out of jail, with a judge throwing out new evidence from 2019 that would suggest that Mumia was not the killer. Maureen takes us inside the hearing, telling us how she felt as multiple Mumia supporters try to release her husband's killer from prison, telling that she'll have to be back in court on December 16th. Then, after Dom plays his Money Melody of the day, Dom returns to recapping last night's debate between Dr. Mehmet Oz and John Fetterman, reading back a review from the Philadelphia Inquirer which grades Oz as a 0, as if they did not even watch the debate. In the article, a writer targets Oz's pro-fracking stance, seemingly not realizing that Fetterman too offered a pro-fracking stance in last night's debate. (Photo by Mark Makela/Getty Images)
On this edition of Working the Beat, Mike Sielski from the Inquirer and 94 WIP joins us to discuss the historic weekend in Philadelphia sports that saw the Phillies advance to the National League Championship Series with a victory over the defending World Series champion Braves, along with the Eagles improving to 6-0 with a 26-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
For years the University of Pennsylvania touted itself as being on the right side of history. That's what Penn student, VanJessica Gladney, thought, too. But when Gladney walked past the bronze statue of George Whitefield, she soon learned that the university's founding story had deep connections to slavery. City Cast Philly host Trenae Nuri unpacks this story with Zoe Greenberg, journalist for the Philadelphia Inquirer's A More Perfect Union series. This series that explores the roots of systemic racism in America through institutions that have been founded in the city.

I don't know if you have ever encountered pigweed, but it is as awful as it sounds. When I moved out in the country, I brought in truckloads of composted manure from around here. What I wasn't expecting was all the foreign weeds I would bring in. Pigweed was the worst: it is tough, spreads quickly, and –to make matters worse – it has stickers, so don't even think about grabbing it and pulling it out with your hands. Besides that, it has roots that go deep. No problem, I thought. I got out my sprayer and carefully went to work on it with Roundup, a herbicide that will kill anything. Well, anything but pigweed. How could that be? Roundup was a farmer's, and also a gardener's, dream. Finally, one spray to kill them all. But a funny thing happened along the way from when Roundup first went on the market – pigweed became resistant! Other weeds have done so as well, I hear. Such is the nature of weeds. They seem to find a way to survive. This week we look at the unstoppable nature of the gospel. The early church in Jerusalem that we see in Acts meets persecution and an angry Saul. Little did the religious leaders know that death, persecution and even the natural enmity of the Jews and Samaritans could not stop the gospel! The gospel is sort of like that pigweed—unstoppable! That is what we are looking at Sunday. It is so encouraging, I hope you will join us.Also, this week in Sunday School, we crank up a new class of St. Patrick 101. If you are new to St. Patrick or just finished the Inquirer's Class, this class will take you deeper into the vision, values, and habits of St. Patrick. I hope you all are refreshed from Fall Break. It has been a lonely week here and I look forward to seeing everyone back!Blessings, Jim

There and Back Again: Sabbatical Reflections You may recognize the title as something I borrowed from Bilbo. It was the working title of what would later be called, The Hobbit. Bilbo's journey was an adventure; mine was a sabbatical journey, though it was not without adventure. Adventure because I got lost in the Red River Gorge, met a world-famous artist in the marshes of South Carolina, fly-fished with (to my mind) “the world's most interesting man” on the Rogue River, saw my wife chase a black bear, and took a seven iron to a water moccasin that was about to strike Addy. It was an adventure because I dipped my feet in the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Pacific Ocean. I traveled to beaches and mountains, all sharing a sameness but each with its own unique terroir. I experienced why Calvin called the works of God in creation, “a theater of God's glory”. My time away was not all fun and games, though. With time and space, I was able do something I have longed to do, which was to write. Teri and I agreed that I would spend three to five hours a day writing, so I did, and I am a long way down the road on a theological reflection of the past seven years. This Sunday will be my first time preaching in over four months. It just might be a fiasco— last Monday, my first time smoking meat in over four months sure was! Nevertheless, I can't wait to be back with you all in Worship. Sunday, I am going to do something I have never done and most likely will never do again: I am going to talk about what God has taught me during this time of going fallow. I am using Psalm 92, which is called, “A Song for the Sabbath” to help gather my thoughts and reflections. I also will share some of the breathtaking beauty that was, for me, an essential part of my time away. The title of the sermon this week is important. I realized during my wandering that what Tolkien says, “All those who wander are not lost,” is true. The “there” was awesome, meaningful, and restful because—for me, at least —there is a “back again.” A little more than three months in, I told Teri, “I am about ready to be home.” So here I am and so thankful for the family of St. Patrick. The gift of this sabbatical for me and my family was immense, and my hope and prayer is that it will bear much fruit for all of us. I can't wait for Sunday and hope to see you there. Oh, and if you are new, join me Sunday at 9:15am for our Inquirer's Class where I will introduce you to St. Patrick and explain why I am so glad to be your pastor. Blessings, Jim

Full Hour | In today's second hour, Dom leads off by discussing a Republican trend toward supporting Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Josh Shapiro, lamenting that there are multiple reasons that the candidate would be highly detrimental to our State. Dom tells about Shapiro turning a blind eye to the crime in Philadelphia under Larry Krasner, reminding listeners of the power granted his way by state lawmakers to step in, in which he continuously refuses. Then, Giordano tells about an Inquirer article that tries to reframe the narrative around Shapiro's take on Coronavirus, now trying to portray the candidate as somebody fighting against the overbearing masking and edicts in schools. Then, Giordano loops back to the clip of John Fetterman saying that people of color are less likely to carry an ID card, calling out the comment as racist. Then, Dom asks whether, if Fetterman is elected, Pennsylvania will have the most entitled representatives, but Dan throws out New Jersey's Booker and Menendez as close competitors. Then, Representative Dan Meuser checks in to the Dom Giordano Program to preview an upcoming appearance by President Joe Biden in his area, appearing in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area. First, Dom asks for Meuser's opinion on the spike in crime across the state, with Dom noting that he predicts crime and justice to be a big portion of Biden's speech. Then, Giordano and Meuser hop into a discussion about the midterm elections in Pennsylvania, with the Congressman offering his opinion on both John Fetterman and Josh Shapiro, two Democrats running for high office in PA.

In today's third hour, Dom welcomes in Rich Helfant, Executive Director and CEO of Lucy the Elephant, a legendary roadside attraction in Margate, NJ, to the Dom Giordano Program to discuss a ‘controversy' as reported by the Philadelphia Inquirer over a mailer sent out in a fundraising effort. In the mailer, Helfant uses the phrase ‘Never Forget, Never Surrender' alongside an image of Lucy standing next to a wrecking ball, but tells that when developing the promotional device, Helfant, being a Jewish man and member of Washington D.C.'s Holocaust Museum, didn't even think about the association. Helfant apologized to the sole complaint, and said that it will never happen again, which Dom feels is the appropriate response, with Helfant explaining why he employed this strategy. Also, Helfant updates the restoration effort for the legendary roadside attraction and tells listeners how they can contribute. (Photo by Getty Images)
