Wednesday Show Prep – Mental Health Day Edition

A new bill just filed in Florida could allow kids to take a day off school each semester as a mental health day. Tampa Representative Susan Valdes is the one who introduced the bill. She says students are under a lot of pressure, from academics, to bullying, to active shooter drills and the threat of school shootings . Two observations: 1) Couldn’t a student just take a day off for illness? Obviously there’s a limit to the number of excused absences, but I don’t think they ask for that much detail about why you were out for the day. 2) Remember when people used to talk about how easy kids had it?

A half-eaten box of donuts was the subject of a “grisly scene” in Sparta, Wisconsin. Police said the incident was a potential trap to lure in tired and hungry night shift officers. They posted it on Facebook. The Internet exploded. What is it with the national epidemic of police departments making goofy social media posts?

Apparently “Rage Yoga” is now a thing. It features beer, loud rock music, lots of yelling and more adult gestures than one would normally associate with yoga. I would definitely take that over goat yoga or hot yoga.

Keith Conrad got his first job in radio in Huntsville, Alabama the day after the 2000 Presidential election when he was a freshman in college. He’s produced radio shows in Huntsville, Milwaukee, WI, Atlanta, GA and finally back in his hometown of Chicago. Currently he lives in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood steps away from the Red Line. The train goes by so often you don’t even notice it. Keith has been dabbling in the Internet arts for a while now, in various roles both professional and just for fun.
