Interview - Gabrielle Cianfrani on the Future of Politics

Listen Now to Gabrielle Cianfrani

The future of politics? Does politics even have a future? From a deeply political Pennsylvania family, Gabrielle has a unique view of politics from the inside view of a Senator’s daughter, and as someone who  at first genuinely believed that our political system served the people. But after many years of serving as a legislative assistant to the head state democratic finance manager, she now believes campaign finance rerform should be front and center in any political future worth living. Special interest lobbies without massive financing evens the playing field. And the power of govenment returns to the interests of the constituency.

And the Internet? Consider that computer networks can easily be perfect socialists when it comes to distributing the wealth. And beyond that, enjoy the show!


Political Commentary - Pundit Dave Spencer, founder of Practically Republican and member of the Rockefeller Family

Listen Now to Dave Spencer 

In this election year we need voices that can lead us to a better future, more than ever. Dave Spencer founded Practically Republican to create a forum where pragmatic, levelheaded GOP supporters can make their voices heard at a time when divisiveness, anger and rhetoric dominate the party platform. 

Dave’s Journey towards practical politics was partially shaped by his background.  Born in New Your as a member of the Rockefeller family, he grew up around a culture of political interest and involvement by being in a family that is considered to be one of the most powerful families in the history of the United States.

On Dr. Future he discusses the latest Presidential debate, the current balance of control in the Senate and House, whether a business man should run the government, solutions to the national debt, immigration, and terroisism issues, Supreme Court nominees, cutting taxes for the middle class, social security solutions, and government-owned cryptocurrency.  Enjoy!

Special Event Show - The Futures Cover Bernie Sanders on his Visit to Santa Cruz

Listen Now to Bernie Sanders Visit to Santa Cruz

In case you are wondering, no we didn’t get Bernie on The Dr. Future Show.  But what we did do was get our radio station, KSCO, to cover Bernie’s talk in Santa Cruz live, which happened to be at the same time as our show..Well, mostly the same time.  He started speaking at 1:30 p.m. and our show starts at 2:00 p.m. So, you’ll hear a little bit of Charlie Freedman show, which is on just before ours.

The lines were very long, people were lining up at 7 a.m. and not admitted to the stadium until 10:30 a.m., after a big Secret Service sweep.  We got in right after the sweep, thanks to the police chief who loves us, and were on the air live as Bernie spoke. After the show, we rushed back to the KSCO studios to finish the show, taking commnets from callers.

So, for this week, we present you with our live coverage of Bernie’s talk, which included many significant elements from his platform, followed by callers, who wanted to comment about his speech.  All in all, it was a very good day, and show. Enjoy!


Future News- Review of Maker Faire with VR pundit Greg Panos, Richard Cray, and Drone Racer Zoe Stumbaugh

Listen to Future News 5.24.2016

The KSCO studio was full today with visitors, all of whom participated in adding valuable comments to our most interesting topics.  All our guests had been at last weekend’s epic Bay Area Maker Faire, from which we drew content for much of the show. We also delved a bit into politics, given that this is a major election year, and after all, we are on talk radio.  For that segment we even got a call from Republican Jerry Law, running for a U.S. Senate position this year in California. 

For the last segment of the show we bring on Zoe Stumbaugh, who is the first woman to make the Drone Nationals this year!  We talk about the latest amazing track design, debuted at the Maker Faire, and the future of drone racing as a career path.  A very dynamic and exciting show this week, enjoy!
