Self portraits 188For the rest of the summer, you can catch me on WPTS 92.1, which is the University of Pittsburgh’s radio station. Every Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. I try to play a good combination of old time, jug bands, string bands, blues, bluegrass, country, punk, rock, alt this and that, folk, etc. It’s been great fun so far, and people seem to like it. Or, the four libertarians on twitter who have killer taste in music seem to like it.*

You can stream it live on Wednesdays at 3 (though sometimes I start a little late) over this way. During those hours, I tend to tweet @wptsrequest, but I don’t have a lot to work with, so if you want a request, I suggest giving it to me a week early.

It’s a good show, if I say so myself. Even if I am a radio pipsqueak, turns out people are right, and it’s a hell of a lot of fun.

* Somebody fund this gold and gave us four a radio show. Unpopular politics¹+unpopular music²= $$$

¹ No, Rand Paul does not count.

² No, Mumford and Sons does not count.

401977_820298143983_859526031_nOver at VICE, they’ve posted my second police column. It’s called “Bad Cop Blotter” (credit for the name goes to my excellent editor, Harry Cheadle, who also tends to write good stuff) and every Monday there will be another one. So if your life isn’t depressing enough, maybe keep reading.

Or just read if you want to see me fight the losing battle known as “trying not to just link to Radley Balko” all the time. I’ve done well so far, but the there are a lot of weeks, and a lot of amazing Balko pieces full of good stats. We’ll see how long I can keep this up.

If you spot any bad cop stories or videos, feel free to send them my way. (Actually, send me good cop stories, too! We have one or two of those a week, or plan to do so.) Links can be sent to LucyStag [at]

Thanks, internet!

Here are my first two posts:
