  • Three stories you need to know
    I look at two very hot topics...panhandling and gun control. Should you help the homeless directly? I have an issue with city leaders on this one. What about using Facebook posts to try and head off mass shootings? Again, I’m going to have to disagree. Also, is your age bumming you out? A Dutch man thinks he has the solution...just get it legally changed. Can it be that easy?

  • Should you help the homeless?
    City and state leaders are asking us to stop helping the homeless directly and instead if to established charities. I guess I understand where they are coming from, but having been homeless myself, it’s a hard message. KSL reporter Mary Richards joins me as we talk about this issue.

  • I want to be legally older!
    Just like some chips or popcorn, this is a tasty little snack. Here’s three stories that just caught my interest: Marriott is, after some pressure from Senator Chuck Schumer, paying for some passports; That quiz that finds out what Friends character you are could also be a cyber-security threat; A Dutch man wants the government to declare him younger so he can escape some of the issues that come with age.   JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional podcast, Hosts of Eden.

  • The Dems had their email hack, now it’s the GOP’s turn

  • Facebook for gun background checks...Really?!?!?!
    So many mass shooters have posted crazy things on social media before they committed their crimes that now some politicians want to include social media feeds in background checks to buy a gun? This is a dangerous rabbit hole. As one listener says, “You want to use my First Amendment right to take away my Second one?” C’mon!   JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional podcast, Hosts of Eden.

  • When did the holidays get so political?
    When did the holidays get so political? From long-time holiday TV shows to even older songs, suddenly there’s something wrong with classic Christmas entertainment. But maybe there should be.

  • Drop Baby but keep Rudolph!
    It’s time for the court of public opinion. Today’s topic: Christmas Classics-Should we dump them if they don’t meet today’s standards? On trial: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. It has bullying. Imagine that! Also on trial: Baby, It’s Cold Outside. Sexual harassment or loving relationship?

  • Designer Babies-Do you want one?
    Could Gattaca become a reality? What about Captain America? Movies have shown genetically altered people for years. Now a doctor in China claims he helped develop the first genetically altered babies. Luke Gangi-Wellman from The Leonardo joins me to discuss the ramifications of this announcement...and if it is even real.   JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional podcast, Hosts of Eden.

  • Baby, It’s Cold Outside isn’t a Christmas song anyways!
    Look, Baby, It’s Cold Outside isn’t really even a Christmas song anyways. So I’m not really worried if it disappears from radio. But Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer shouldn’t be banned because of bullying because it is an anti-bullying message. Jeff Caplan and I hash it out.   JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional podcast, Hosts of Eden.
