Exhausted, all my tech is failing, including this podcast.  Oh, did I mention I'm losing my hearing and half-blind in one eye?  So, how's your year been going.  See also one of my earliest podcast episodes, "Some Old Guy Whining." Show Theme "Hot Swing" from Kevin MacLeod of Incompetech.com. Com...

I recently completed the Audible version of "Prince Martin Wins His Sword" for the author, Brandon Hale.  While recording this rhyming book, I noticed a particular piece of music fit the rhyme scheme perfectly.  And then I also noticed the promotional language on the book's page on Amazon also r...

Hello, welcome back for Federalist # 14, "Objections to the Proposed Constitution From Extent of Territory Answered." You know, I do love reading these older works aloud for you. I like to think it adds a living energy to words to which you and I have paid far too little attention for far too lo...

Hello, we meet again, this time for Federalist # 13, "Advantage of the Union in Respect to Economy in Government." Once again, the Federalist's primary argument for the Constitution is that it is the only way to preserve the Union, all the states working together. That argument is assumed throug...

Hello again. Tonight is Federalist # 12, which is all about Revenue. Or in other words, tax collecting. Naturally this one is written by Alexander Hamilton, the banker. He founded the Bank of New York. Later on, President George Washington appointed him as the first Secretary of the Treasury, an...

Hello again. Tonight I'm recording Federalist #11. This is not the most exciting essay to the modern ear, being primarily about international trade, especially by sea. The ending does get a bit firey. I am not a trained historian, just a history fan, I suppose. In 1787 America didn't have much o...

Hello ladies and gentlemen. This is David Grizzly Smith. You probably guessed that, of course. I normally wouldn't do what I'm going to do tonight. This is rather unusual for Grizzly's Growls -- though Grizzly's Growls doesn't have a strict format, and besides it's mine, I can do what I want. As...

Hello again and welcome to Federalist #10. You may remember I mentioned I'd be recording this the same night as #9. I was startled to notice that #9, "The Union as a Safeguard Against Domestic Faction and Insurrection" was written by Hamilton, and was rather intellectual. But #10, "The Same Subj...

Tonight I'm recording Federalist number 9. I'm sorry that I'm way behind the weekly recordings I originally planned. It was such a lovely plan, wasn't it? I'm going to try to record two tonight, so I can get caught back up. I feel like there ought to be three aspects of this essay for me to comm...

"The Symbol and the Saint," from "Christmas Tales and Christmas Verse," by Eugene Field, published in 1912. A very pretty story I found, and recorded on this date back in 2008, as Hiber-Nation 45.  Still makes a good audio Christmas card, not perfect, but heartfelt. Best wishes for ...

Though these essays seem to be separate pieces, they are also organized to work together as a cohesive piece.  Also, as with other old works I've recorded, there are lessons here that apply well to our modern circumstances.  Every day we see "Dangers From Foreign Force and Influence," don't we? ...
