Beginning the countdown to my new show "Here's A thought  . . . with Charles Shaughnessy" My premiere show is this Thursday, August 7th at 3 pm PST on +TradioV LA and I hope you will join me!

This is a LIVE, call in, radio talk show on the internet, yes that's the WORLD WIDE WEB, but can also be seen and heard on the website or on Livestream in he archives, after it airs.  TradioV? It's RADIO in TV!! 

What are YOUR thoughts?

Post them here in the comments section. By the way, when I ask for your thoughts, you could hear them on my show in the future! I'm so excited about this opportunity to interact with all of you and for you to become "Thoughters." It's the next obvious step in broadcast journalism, and I hope you will come along on this adventure with me!

AND ONE MORE THING . . . I have a Kickstarter campaign that is VERY IMPORTANT to the future of my show.  Please check it out at this link!  Your donations are truly appreciated, and you can get some fun gift rewards with your donations.

  1. Hooray--this comes on right after I get home from work. I can't think of a better way to unwind. The internet is such an awesome thing--I never would have dreamed I'd get to interact with the favorite actor of my childhood. I become more and more fond of you the more we interact! I can't wait to hear even more through your show.

    1. Laura Reilly. I am retired but everything else you said could have been what I feel too. You expressed it so well. He is my favorite actor and person hands down. He is the most interactive celebrity out there and I really want him to raise this money so we can all benefit from a great show.

  2. I think that parents, these days, want to be a friend to their children and are unwilling to act like parents because they don't want any friction in their relationship with the child. Any thoughts?

    1. When my kids were being raised in the 80's and certainly in my childhood there was no option of "saying NO".Most kids would have done is to complain with their siblings or friends but definitely not talk back to their parents or other adults. Today's kids are so spoiled that when they hear NO, they flail all about with their arms and legs much like Gumby,drop to the ground, answer their parents back and throw a tantrum that would have landed them in a punishment that would have had them grounded for days on end. It's just disheartening to see and hear.

  3. Of course we would--politics! Life would be quite boring if everyone agreed on everything.

  4. Of course there would!!! I have friends of all religious persuasions, and we don't fight about religion! There are significant religious wars happening in the world, but that's not all there is to it. "The Love of Money is the Root of All Evil". Greed is a big issue, with people who think that every last "Ebenezer Scrooge" penny should be theirs even if it's dishonest gain, and those who think they should be entitled to money they have not earned! We fight about parking spaces, the right way to hang toilet paper, how to squeeze a tube of toothpaste, etc. We are imperfect humans who are basically selfish and who lose our cool sometimes.

  5. I believe that if we all agreed on every single would be very boring! However I don't believe that war is the answer to disagreements.
    I think it's better to agree to disagree and to try and understand each other's point of veiw, instead of being closed minded.

  6. Being political is part of being human. We are political animals, even if we don't think we are! I believe people need to express themselves more and get involved, but at the same time, be willing to hear and LISTEN to another person's opinions and thoughts and accept that they may disagree with you without flying off the handle and saying they are wrong. If we all listened more and gave issues more thought, we would all be better off.

  7. Of course there would be stuff to argue about - I mean there are just some people who love the drama and love being contrary-

  8. Religion is man-made, scrolls/bible/koran/sutras/torah for example were written by philosophers/theologians ordained in their religion; it serves a purpose as guideline to living for individuals who give reverence or pay homage. You could wake up one day to find religion is wiped out or the freedom of belief is taken away politically, when you are put to the test in countries where those freedoms are stripped then you really challenge yourself to remember and to keep those precepts in your heart. Each individual has that chamber at the core of their heartsoul to believe to exercise spirituality, whether that be in the form of connecting with the universe, listen to the stillness of our inner being, discover the other parts of our brain matter that are active only during REM sleep, under hypnosis, under psychadelic experiences; Every individual has the potential to flourish in their existence to live in the moment, its not always about quantity it is about quality. Every person believes in their truth, believes in some existence without absolute proof; an atheist is a believer--he or she believes there is no God, people will find something to believe in whether it be in the hierarchy of one's self, a higher power, the universe, the art of believing is relative it is a common denominator in each and everyone of us, believing is not a skill, we are born to believe, believing is a creative process, its a daily process integral to surviving and thriving.

  9. IF my father had lived this long, he would be 100 years old TODAY!!!

    RIP POPS!!

    Also, agree with poster above: without unique, free thinking, possibly weird individuals, life would be TOO BORING! Be true to yourself and let the bobbing tongues of the naysayers wag!

    Cleveland ROCKS!

Charles Shaughnessy on Twitter  @C_Shaughnessy
"RIP Cory.  Until we treat alcoholism and other mental health problems as compassionately as we treat cancer, there will be other Corys."


What are your thoughts?

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — “Glee” actor Cory Monteith, who had struggled for years with substance abuse and once said he was lucky to be alive, died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol, the British Columbia coroner’s office said Tuesday.“There is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith’s death was anything other than a most tragic accident,” the office said in a statement. He was 31 years old.
