Reason Bound

Recording from Tokyo, I have on guests and we talk about various topics such as social issues, politics, entertainment, and what's happening in the world. It's not what people believe, but why they believe it that I find most interesting.

Evading capture by Dr. Loomis, Holly Wilt returns to the Reason Bound podcast to talk with Ryan about several issues: A place they both worked, religion and a world created with evil, parents with special needs children and how some cope with supernatural reasoning, #blessed, and "locker room talk". On a lighter note, they also talk about Jamie Lee Curtis's return to Halloween, memories of H20 and Josh Hartnett, the difference between Jason X and Freddy v.s. Jason, and a discussion about everyone's favorite neighbor, Mr. Rogers. There's also a bonus story at the end between Ryan and Holly that dates back to over ten years ago and the obvious clues Ryan gave Holly for her to have her epiphany. To anyone who downloads/listens/subscribes, Holly and Ryan think you've made this day a special day by just your being you. There's no person in the whole world like you, and they like you just the way you are. ^_–

Before Reason Bound launched and just prior to the 2016 US elections, Sean Curran recorded what were intended to be the first episodes with Ryan but ultimately were shelved. In this show Sean finally joins Ryan to review movements such as "Bernie Or Bust" and people's mindsets surrounding the election and candidates. As they both remark, we've never seen an election like what went down in 2016, and Sean and Ryan who had seen things differently in 2016 are now able to look back and discuss topics such as reliable information, the feeling of getting caught up in movements, and Sean reveals to Ryan for the first time what he ultimately did with his vote. As a longtime Eugene resident, Sean also discusses events surrounding the LGBT+ community there and why (in part) it's been difficult for a cohesive community to form in a city that thinks of itself as very progressive.

Award winning British journalist, Charles Thomson, returns to the Reason Bound podcast to discuss music from the Heartbreak Hotel. Charles and Ryan talk about Elvis Presley and what he did or didn't contribute to music as well as accusations against the man and movement being racist. Ideas about Elvis from Stevie Wonder to Three 6 Mafia are discussed and provide context of "The King" from contemporaries, people who came after him, and those who knew him before he burst onto the music scene. But first, Charles starts off with some great stories of James Brown including speaking to him at a press conference and the "Godfather of Soul" playing with him during a live performance from the stage. Other topics include Prince and Under The Cherry Moon, The Wiz, Michael Jackson and his discography, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, The Beatles, and how artists will be remembered through history.

Michael Hubbard served as a combat medicine technician in the United States Army. In this episode he discusses his time in the Army including what basic training was like, his drill sergeant, low stress v.s. high stress platoons, how guys would solve their issues with each other, his time in India with the Indian soldiers, issues living in a compound with Iraqi soldiers, his recognition for improving security perimeters and the private dinner he had with higher-ups including now Sergeant Major of the Army, Daniel A. Dailey as a result. Mike and Ryan then discuss the controversial topic of women serving in combat roles in which Mike gives his view into what types of problems could arise, things he saw while serving, and in which situations he would be for or against it. Thanks to Mike, this is an often hilarious and insightful podcast between two friends of nearly 17 years.
