Lilly Melgar & Martha Madison from Soapbox on TradioV join Charles Shaughnessy on Here's A Thought 9.4.2014

I am thrilled to announce that my guests today are Lilly Melgar Monterrosa Martha Madison from Soap Box with Lilly & Martha on TradioV

Our topic today is Disrupt Economy, Crowd Funding and Connections. Disrupt economy is a loose term that includes the kind of economy that cuts out the middleman thereby "disrupting" the old models e.g. Uber, AirB and B & all kinds of Crowd Funding. It is more like consumer to consumer directly.  It plays into the bigger picture of "connection" that I am into these days. The established economies hate it because it a. cuts them out of the picture and b. gets between them and the consumer. 

So think about our topic, start tweeting your comments and questions to @C_Shaughnessy on Twitter with #heresathought, leave comments here or on Facebook and we might use some of them on the show. 

THEN . . . Listen to the show LIVE and if you have a comment or question based on the topic that we are discussing, call in to the show and I will take as many phone calls as time permits!

Not only does she draw all of our wonderful cartoons, but Janne makes a special dessert each week for she and her family to eat during the show!  This week it is cheesecake with the head Thoughter on it shown here by her son Martin Nordvang!  

HERE ARE SOME THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW TO PARTICIPATE IN "Here's A Thought with Charles Shaughnessy" 

MY intention is to deliver an hour to you every week that will inspire, challenge, confront & make you think.  To give you a platform to interact with me & my guests, hear what we have to say and then share your thoughts via Twitter, call in, and here on the blog!  If you haven't subscribed to the blog yet, please do so you know when it is updated!!

When you tune in 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm on Thursday afternoons (PST) at you can listen and engage with me, live. There's always something to talk about, always something to say back. HOWEVER . . . If you miss a live show, you can always listen to the archived version, then come to the blog and discuss the show with other thoughters. Some of your thoughts and comments will be discussed on a future show!

You can send in your twitter questions to @C_Shaughnessy with #heresathought and your question or comment in your tweet.

You can call the studio BUT ONLY when the show is ON THE AIR LIVE (3-4 pm pst thursdays)  YOU MUST TURN THE SOUND OFF ON YOUR COMPUTERS when you call in and just listen through your phones or we get so much feedback we will have to end the call with you!!   You will be asked what your comment or questions is and what your name is as well.  I WILL ANNOUNCE ON THE AIR WHEN I AM READY TO START TAKING PHONE CALLS.  


  1. I like your show very much. So here is one of my thougths(or questions): What do you and your guests think about the Ebola situation in Africa ? I´ll think we should think about their problems.

    Thank you for giving me a possibility to ask this question.

3 pm PDT - 4 pm PDT on your computers, LIVE at

Our special guest will be Charlie's friend, the very charming, Jack Maxwell.  Jack is the Host of the extremely entertaining, funny and successful show on The Travel Channel, The Booze Traveler!  We are thrilled to have Jack on the show to talk to us all about his new TV show. He just finished his first season of the show and has been picked up for a second season!

At each stop, he connects with locals, immerses himself in regional activities, learns about the country’s unique relationship with liquor and sometimes even participates in the alcohol-making process. If you haven't seen the show, you must check it out the website for #BoozeTraveler or watch some of the episodes online or on The Travel Channel. Check your …

Charles Shaughnessy Blog ~ So this is what I think . . . .21 february, 2012

THE Global struggle is NOT between Christianity and Islam, East .v. is between the extremist and the moderate, the reactionary against the progressive. Look closely at the ideology of Rick Santorum, emergent as the standard bearer of the very vocal reactionary Christian Right, and compare it with the ideology of extremist Islam. Both see Religion as the guiding spirit of society, to the point where legislation itself should be Religion-oriented; not much removed from the vision of a Theocracy. Is there any real material difference between Santorum and the Right's desire to have government illegalize abortion, contraception and many other more subtle rights for women on the one hand, and the tenets of Sharia law that marginalize women in the Islamic culture on the other? Both sides believe in the "sanctity" of life, but will willingly sacrifice it in the name of their Gods. Again, is there really any material difference between shooting a doctor outside his Pla…

"RIP Cory.  Until we treat alcoholism and other mental health problems as compassionately as we treat cancer, there will be other Corys."

He was 31 years old.
