Exercise and Humor in the Jazz Age

For those of you who have not yet given up on your New Year’s Resolution to get in shape, today I offer a little inspiration and advice. The Antics of Arabella was brought my attention by Rebecca Onion’s blog on Slate: The Vault. This blog offers up some delightful memento of history, such as a...

Montezuma Fire Machine

  Back in Episode 54 you might remember hearing me wax rhapsodic about a band I caught opening for Ford Theater Reunion called Montezuma Fire Machine. Since Charlie and I recorded the episode about 12 hours after actually seeing them perform, I didn’t get the email with their biography or...

Equal Education Unequal Pay

    This week on Episode 55 of the The Charlie Tonic Hour, Charlie and I discuss fact that women still tend to make less money than men for working similar jobs with similar education. And this despite the fact women are increasingly out numbering men in higher education, as well as getting higher GPAs...

Dancing Through the Tears

Last Saturday Doctor Bombay and the Atomic Bachelor Pad were headlining the official Cincinnati Comic Expo after-party over at Mainstay’s. It was supposed to be the triumphant return of Ginny Tonic. I haven’t danced with Doctor Bombay since April and I have missed it so much. Being able to call...

Robot Invades Mars!

  On Episode 35 of Charlie Tonic, Charlie and I geek out over the Mars Curiosity Rover and other amazing space facts. No matter how cynical and jaded our society has become, we can’t be too far gone if we can take the time to pause as a nation and celebrate landing a robot on Mars. The color...

Secret Pop Culture Crushes

Since so many of its articles involve random scientific facts, pop culture references, and immature sexual innuendo it’s no surprise that the writers of Cracked are a frequent source of inspiration to Charlie and me. This week I read an article called 6 Pop Culture Icons Nobody Admits They Were...

The Church of Annie Dillard

It’s been awhile since I’ve given you a good book recommendation. In Episode 32 Charlie and I discuss spirituality so I thought it would fitting to share a book by a woman who is probably my favorite writer of all time. Although I am not as big a fan of her fiction, her essays capture...

Unsentimental Love Songs

  In Episode 31 of The Charlie Tonic Hour, Charlie shared Tender Trap by Joan Armatrading. He explained that one of the reasons that he likes the song is because it deals with the little everyday moments of love rather than the big dramatic declarations that most love songs rely on. That reminded me...

A Musical Explosion in Cincinnati

This past weekend was the kind of weekend that makes me proud to live in Cincinnati. It can be easy for Cincinnati natives who look around at the wider world to feel that their modest sized city with a national reputation for conservative policies is missing out on all the fun that other cities are having....
