On the radio

My annual birthday-month fund-raising drive for Behind the Black is now on-going. Not only do your donations help pay my bills, they give me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.


Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.


Regular readers can support Behind The Black with a contribution via paypal:

Or with a subscription with regular donations from your Paypal or credit card account:

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

On Tuesday, December 19, 2017 I spent an hour with Robert Pratt on his Pratt on Texas radio show. Most of the show was devoted not to space and science but to discussing my weekly updates on the fascist culture on too many of today’s American campuses.

Robert has just let me know that this hour-long interview is going to be replayed twice over the next two weeks, on Christmas Day, December 25, 2017, and on New Year’s Day, January 1, 2018, both times from 6 to 7 pm Central time. He also let me know that the best link to listen is here.

So, if you have nothing better to do during these holidays, here is something that might help to fill your time.

    I will attempt to catch this, Mr. Pratt has an interesting Show!

    I’m eyeing the “Mysterious Outpost” appearance as well! That should be interesting.
    As does “The Cats Roundtable.”

    Caught the show. I like this Pratt guy.

    Some degree of comfort can be taken by what parents are doing at the University of Missouri Columbia.

    Enrollment down 35%. Perhaps worsening as each new freshman class is smaller yet past 3 years running.

    As a result there are 7 empty dorms that they try to rent out for home games.

    LAYOFFS of faculty and staff including tenured positions. And yes the lawsuits have been filed.

    Although I can’t find the article now state legislators are hearing from parents and pushing school administrators to get their act together as they hold the funding purse strings.

    Panic in the off campus student housing rental market that over built when University joined SEC back a few years. There are entire complexes that are empty.

    A beneficiary of all of this has been Missouri State in Springfield that has experienced large jumps in enrollment. Many parents feel that campus has a more sensible administration.

    We have a long way to go however to turn this dark ages thing around.
