Social Media's Numbing Effect

Social Media, an incredible platform. But has it disconnected us from being more genuine and human? Every time a celebrity passes, social media reminds us of how insignificant that celebrity really was. We go on years without considering the existence of someone yet when they pass it is time to express appreciation and sympathy towards someone who is no longer here. What happen?

Tracy and Al start the show talking about the death of Chris Cornell of Soundgarden and how his social media turned us into phony, unsympathetic sheep. The guys then talk about the terrorist attack in Manchester. They also mention the officer involved shooting in Oklahoma and the not guilty vedrict of Officer Shelby. The guys recall the Mayor of Baltimore giving the green light to the rioters to riot. Mikey makes a cameo on the show and the guys talk about the Hindenburg disaster.


Richard Tracy, host of the new podcast Criminal Masterminds, is a new breed of talk radio and podcasting. Think of Tracy as a Super Hero, only this one does not come with a fancy cape or gadgets. He does not combat villains nor does he jump out of burning and crashing airplanes with out a parachute. What Tracy does and will combat is the anti police rhetoric which has been plaguing the nation along with the political correctness which has prevent people from having the true "honest and open dialogue" on the current issues regarding policing in the Great U.S. of A. He also may make you chuckle like a school kid in the process.
