Is the news getting you down?

Upset about all the political turmoil? Reports of climate change? Death and destruction?

Jim's got a great solution — to numb your mind (and don't worry, the powers that be really don't mind if we all let our minds go numb; it makes their job easier).

It's reality TV! This week, on "America's Most Dysfunctional Families," it's "Incest Week!" And the History Channel has probably gone about as far as it can go with "Hitler's Gynocologist."

That's all in the latest installment of the Jim Gearhart Show podcast, available here, on iTunes and Google Play.

But that's just part of what Jim takes on in the latest installment of his podcast. Check out the full episode below to hear the rest. Email Jim at Jim@NJ1015.com.
