Episode 59: Tracy Time

We feel pretty lucky to be have so many interesting ASL dignitaries who are willing to spend some time talking to us. And just when we start to think we've hit them all, another great one comes to mind. Today we have an interview with one of the ASL communities most prominent members, J.R. Tracy. Topics include gaming near New York, the state of ASL today, ASLOK 2011, night rules and more 

First, though, Jeff offers a history lesson about The Bellamy Salute which, prior to World War II, was a popular accompaniment to the Pledge of Allegiance. He then shares his recent discovery of a fascinating -- and toe tapping -- Nazi propaganda swing band called Charlie and His Orchestra. And Dave presents a book review of Unbroken: A WWII Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand.

Thanks to Albert Hernandez for the comedy bit idea.

Oh, and Jeff made Dave promise -- no looney sound bites!

    heard the comment on the show about "every day of WW!! covered and found this today from our Aussie friends :

    I cannot claim to recognize the list as complete. My knowledge is not that vast. However, it looked quite nice to me. I rather enjoyed browsing the list as I was looking for a comprehensive scenario guide and the post was especially good for my purposes.

    I hope you find this as nice as I did.
