The Hot Chick Politic Show | Basic Human Connection

New Sacramento podcast "The Hot Chick Politic Show." HCP delivers informed conversations about society, charity, education, and small business. One of our mantras is "think globally, but act locally." We believe, here at HCP, that by getting familiar with the people associated with these categories (the doers) we can grow a more compassionate society. We would love to see voter turn out grow with every election, and for America to become a voting culture. Now, we have all heard the history about winning the right to vote, but less than half of all Americans actually vote. We can do this. Please take a minute to check out The Hot Chick Politic Show and listen for yourself ☺

The Hot Chick Politic Show | Your Weekly Dose of Basic Human Connection

Aug 16, 2015

Hi Friends,

Today's podcast is a review from the City of Trees music festival.  Put on by local Sacramento radio station 94.7.

Thank you to the bands and especially all of the organizers of the festival.  Not bad for the first run.  

Thank you for listening :)

Hi Friends,

Our show today is continuing our dive into the workings of our educational system.  We are talking with Special Education Counselor/ Marriage and Family Intern, Gina.  She has a passion for helping our kids deal with social/emotional difficulties that affect personal performance/well being at school.

Also, we've added a new segment to the beginning of the show where I take a few minutes to talk about one or more important current events and offer my take on it.  This week I offer my two cents on the Iran Nuclear Deal.

Thank You,

Tami Diane

Hi Friends,

Its been a month or so since our last podcast.  The last few months have been amazing and eye-opening for me. I've met/reconnected with some amazing people, each of whom has contributed so generously their time and insights into some important discussion topics. 

I've spent the the last month or so reflecting on the work we've done together and dreaming about upcoming interview possibilities.  Also, taking time to focus on mommy/household duties.  We are expecting out third child this October! We have a 4 year old boy, 2 year old girl, and this one will be a boy 👼

As my mind turns and curiously gets the best of me, I've found myself enthralled in a journey for a deeper understanding of society. Specifically, religion, and how it plays a role in our everyday lives.  The 3 most influential monotheistic religions of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism are my main focus.

By understanding the history, tradition, and how religious leaders  interpret recent changes in society. I can't wait to share more with you all about this topic. 

In the meantime, we have some great interviews lined up for July and should have a new podcast available sometime this month. Thanks you all for following and listening!!

Hi Friends,

We are back with a show about the American drug world and specifically the cycle of criminals through the system and how that world lives on the streets, in our communities.

Thank you, Scott Thomas Anderson, for providing thought provoking content.  Check out his new book "The Cutting 4-Piece: Crime and Tragedy in an Era of Prison Overcrowding."

Hello Friends,

 

Today we are getting to know Shelley.  She is a 3rd grade teacher.  She shares her perspective on common core.  She opens up about how students, teachers, and parents are adapting to the new teaching standards.

 

Shelley has a lifelong passion for giving back to the community and really possesses a passion for education.  She is deeply rooted to her community and genuinely cares about each student and giving them tools to help solve problems in society.

 

Common Core, she believes will give each student in America the tools they need to think critically and outside of the box.   As a brand new teaching standard, Common Core implementation is uncharted territory for everyone involved. 

 

Communication, patience, and getting informed will help us all make this transition successful.

 

Thank You,

 

Tami Diane

Hello Friends,

The boys from the band, No Where But Up, join us in the studio to bring us along on their musical journey.

 

Westley and Nick are in studio talking about it all; their deep connection to creating and performing, to the lighter and sillier sides of their friendship.  I think we even talk about the weather at one point ;)

 

It is my pleasure to introduce them on our podcast as our official house band.  Westley, Nick, Gentry, and Joey, thank you for lending us your music.

 

Go to nowherebutup.squarespace.com to get free music downloads from the band!

 

Ciao Ciao,

Hello Friends,

This week we get to know Alice.  She has earned her Masters of Education w/ an emphasis in Best Practices.  Currently, she teaches 4th grade at a Title One school.  

She opens up about unconditional love, routine, involvement, communication, and what she thinks needs to change. Please enjoy this perspective from the 'frontlines' of our educational system.

Happy Sunday,

Tami Diane  

 

Title I Schools- Defined

Schools where at least 40 percent of the children in the school attendance area are from low-income families or at least 40 percent of the student enrollment are from low-income families are eligible to receive federal Title I funds. The proportion of low-income families is most frequently measured by the percent of students receiving free and reduced-price lunch. Title I funds are to be used for programs designed to improve the academic achievement of children from low-income homes. Over half of all public schools receive funding under Title I. No Child Left Behind requires all districts and schools receiving Title I funds to meet state "adequate yearly progress" (AYP) goals for their total student populations and for specified demographic subgroups. If a school receiving federal Title I funding fails to meet the AYP target for two consecutive years or more, the school is designated in need of improvement and faces consequences, including public school choice for students in the school, supplemental services (including tutoring) for students, certain corrective actions and school restructuring.

Hi Friends!

HCP provides a platform for community members to speak first hand about their experiences as a citizen.  People can speak freely because, here at HCP we provide a friendly and non-judgemental ear along with comfy chairs, beverages, and snacks on demand ;)  These interviews break stereotypes, and help acquaint folks from all walks of life.  From the bottom to the top.  

 

We are not talking at people, we are talking to people, real people from the bottom up.  We talk about daily lives, passion, and understanding.  By putting effort into understanding our neighbor, our community, our country, and our world, we can then make educated decisions about the world.  Decisions we can take right from our neighborhood to the capitol.

 

Our job is to help one another.  The only way to do that is to understand one another and develop compassion.  End finger-pointing and stereotypes and become compassionate.  Compassion that becomes so clear that action is inevitable.  That is our mission.

 

One practical way we can see this change would be looking at voter turn out.  We would love to see voter turn out grow with every election, and for America to become a voting culture.  Now, we have all heard the history about winning the right to vote, but less than half of all Americans actually vote.   We can change this.

 

HCP is not here to tell you how to vote or who to vote for.  We are here to tell the story of every American citizen from the bottom up.  Personal connection to the voices and stories will provide that spark we all need to get moving.  Moving whichever way your own heart guides you.  

 

Please take the time to check out Hot Chick Politic blog and listen for yourself :)

Hello All,

Ever wonder what politics means to you?  Not just theoretically or on election day, but how the political sphere affects our daily lives.  What do 'politics' have to do with me anyway?  A few years (ok, a decade;) ago, one of my polical science professors started her first day of lecture with this same question to all of her students.

As she watched us wriggle in our seats to try and come up with and intellectual comback, she did something really cool.  I'll never forget this, it changed the way I looked at politics...forever.  

She said anybody name ONE thing.  Anything. Anything at all.  An item of clothing, the clock on the wall, the parking lot we parked in, the car we drove, you get the idea.  Name one thing that has not had to go through a political process before it became accessable for use or consumption by the general population.  

Take your clothes.  Where did the fabric come from? Who or what sewed the seems together? Where was it made? how did they get to the store where you bought them?

Bureaucracy (aka 'red-tape') is the governments way of ensuring products and services are made available and meet minimum standards for consumption.  I dare you to try this exercise yourself.  See if you can name ONE thing that hasn't, at one point or another, been subjet to politics.  

It was a reality check for me.  Politics, whether we like it or not, are a part of our world, and affect you personally and directly.  But, when we hear 'experts' or 'political analysts' talk on television, the disconnect is glaringly obvious.  

None of us are 'experts' but we do know about values, logic, and the Golden Rule (do unto others....yatta yatta yatta).  Experts have there place, but it is time for us to have our place too.  Hot Chick Politic interview sessions are the place.  We can talke about our truth;  truths that the common people can relate to, we can hold on to, and bond over.

This podcast is about talking to those people, the doers.  The people on the 'front lines making this American life work for them.  I predict that, on this journey of interviews and connection, we will find out that we are more alike than we are different.

Goodnight All,

Tami Diane
