12.23 – An IMPORTANT Fight in Santa Barbara and HausGuests Dan Chambers and Mark Tapson

Heads up: next week’s #HausRules will FEATURE replays of the year’s most listened-to HausGuest segments. It will NOT be live.

So, today’s was the FINAL live show of the year.

And it was GLORIOUS (thanks to two of my MOST-favored guests):Listen to “#HausRules – 12.23.16” on Spreaker.

I began the show talking about an extremely important fight raging in Santa Barbara. The forest service wants to widen a fire break in the hills north of the city. Conservation activists want to limit the potential catastrophic damage to the legless lizard and manzanita chapparal in the area. I can see both sides’ points and am extraordinarily conflicted about the whole thing:screen-shot-2016-12-23-at-5-16-53-pm

Ask the Counselor – Dan Chambers

Dan and I discussed two different cases:

  1. Families of the Orlando nightclub shooting are suing Google, Facebook, and Twitter — asserting that these platforms allowed and sponsored the dissemination of pro-ISIS information, inspiring the shooter: screen-shot-2016-12-23-at-4-44-50-pm
  2. The Supreme Court will be considering whether the band “The Slants” can obtain trademark protection on their name: screen-shot-2016-12-23-at-4-46-58-pm

HausGuest – Mark Tapson

Fun fact: Mark was the FIRST guest of 2016 and also was the LAST guest, as well.

Mark and I talked about two different stories:

  1. MTV’s New Years Resolutions for White People video:
  2. A REAL feminist at the Israeli Defense Forces:screen-shot-2016-12-23-at-5-02-09-pm
