Ever watch Talk Soup? It was a popular daily talk show like the Daily Show but on the E! network for a long time. This weeks guest was a long time host for that show and has starred in some impressive films throughout his career. First up on the show this week is Hal Sparks.
Hal comes in via Zoom/Skype to discuss the current status of our country during this COVID 19 stuff. Hal Sparks hosts his own political radio show out of Chicago (WCPT) for quite a few years and he brings that background an research to the table to discuss whats going on nationally. Hal discusses the Russian aspect of this virus and how China reacted. How will the unemployed people of the country handle this COVID and how will the system handle the overbearing pressure of the sheer unemployment numbers. The two men go round and round discussing their progressive thoughts and ideas.
Next up is Andrew Glantz and his upstart company called "Gift a Meal". The point of gift a meal is that they partner with food places and restaurants to guarantee some of the profit goes to buying a meal for someone in need. They work out of St. Louis with the local area Foodbanks to buy a meal through the Foodbank to donate to someone who needs it. It's incredibly needed during this pandemic with so many people who are employed normally to know where their next meal is coming from. The people in desperate need of their meal can thank organizations like Gift a Meal for existing. We discuss the business model and little more with their head honcho Andrew Glantz.
