On Heckling, Droughts and The Insanity That Was Ireland In The '70s and '80s.
If you're a listener of KTCK 1310-AM or 96.7 FM, you probably feel like you already know TC Fleming and Jake Kemp well. And if you're not a listener of The Ticket? Well, whatever. You're about to get real familiar with these two just the same. Wanna hear past episodes? You can check out IJB's archives here and on our Soundcloud page. Wanna subscribe to the podcast on iTunes?

If you're looking for tips on how to get your car out of sand, this is the podcast for you! Really: It comes up. So does Jimmy Butler's impending restricted free agency and a little bit bleacher heckling. But that’s just a quick mention, and otherwise we ain't talking sports.
Rather, we're talking water conservation. It's a more interesting topic than it sounds like, I promise. Mainly, we dig into the drought in California, and the class warfare being waged by folks looking to shame rich people with lush lawns. I'll be out there on vacation this weekend, so look for updates on this next week.
Then, in the latter half of this week's podcast, I've finally found a way to work a whole segment of Irish history into the podcast! A hit the IRA made in the '70s has made some headlines in the last year because a Boston College oral history project inadvertently released incriminating evidence. That's the slide we ride into the wider world of just how insane Belfast was in the '70s and '80s. And there are a lot of rich stories in there.
I really think you're really going to dig it. — TC Fleming
