Let me Bend your Ear Podcast

Hosted by Frank Goicuria

Lively discussion of Movies, Sports and Politics

Episode 27 - Howard Schultz Public Enemy No.1

I am back !! I discuss my extended absence from the show and discuss the possible run of Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz for President in 2020 and it's relation to polarization and the protection of the two-party system.

I also reflect on this podcast as it approaches the one year mark.

Episode 26 - True Crime and Horror Flicks

I am joined in this episode by Niamh , author of the Crime In my Pocket Blog.

We discuss her blog and how she got into True Crime and then we talk about some of our favorite horror movies among other topics including the all important question , Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? Let’s just say that Niamh and I are in agreement on the obvious answer to this question.

Episode 23 - Movies in Space Part 1 - First Man (2018)

In this episode I review the Damien Chazelle film “ First Man” which tells the story of Neil Armstrong from his role as a test pilot , being chosen to take part in the Gemini program through his lunar flight as commander of Apollo 11 and his place in history.

This is part 1 of a 3 part series covering movies in space. Part 2 will discuss “ The Right Stuff” and Part 3 will cover “Apollo 13”

Episode 22 - Cigar City Mafia Part 2

In this companion show to Episode 8 I interview a former long time resident of Ybor City and get her recollections of growing up in Ybor and her stories of the Mafia influence that was present but did not affect her in the way you may expect.

NOTE: I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you listen to EPISODE 8 first so you know the background of the people that are referenced in this episode.

Episode 20 - Marcus Mariota vs Jameis Winston

I bring back my guest from the first episode of the show Chad Casey of the Sports Car Unleashed Podcast.

Chad and I discuss the quarterbacks of our favorite NFL teams. Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston.

These two QB’s are very different but have faced many of the same challenges that have stunted their growth.

Titans super fan Chad breaks down the career of Marcus Mariota and I do the same for Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston.

Is Mariota injury prone ? Can Winston ever cut down on turnovers?

These questions and more are discussed plus we give our thoughts on if either QB will be the franchise quarterbacks they were drafted to be.
