Bowler’s Desk Political Podcast with Matt Bowler and Ric Epps.

This week we met over in Balboa Park off of 6th ave. In-between the Bridge Club (I thought it was the Chess Club) and the 6th ave playground.

It was a great day. We found a nice shady spot at a picnic table and hung out and chatted about what we love to talk about what we love to talk about …. politics.

This time around we shot video of our chat too. You can still get the podcast off of iTunes and listen there but now it’s been segmented and posted to youtube.com. So you can watch it now if you want … on your phone, computer, (if you have Apple TV) on your tv.

We talked about Mayor Filner and the Feds looking into a possible violation, prop 8’s continuing saga, Obama, Cairo, and much much more.

If you want to share any of your idea thought … hop on the soapbox and call (619) 663-4531
