In Episode 17 we revisit topics from previous episodes, namely deflation in the NFL and childhood immunizations. Afterwards we discuss Astronomy and, more specially, discoveries brought to us via the Hubble and Kepler Telescopes.  We talk about some of Albert Einstein’s theories and how well they’ve held up for over a century.  One of Einstein’s most important theories was proven by observations taken during a solar eclipse in 1919 by one Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington.  Arthur Eddington is actually a distant relative of Boomer and X co-host Evan Eddington.  As a compliment to this episode we recommend two excellent movies for your viewing pleasure, Einstein and Eddington and Contact.  We hope you enjoy episode 17! 

We look forward to hearing from you @boomerandxshow

In Episode 16 we briefly review results from the “Super Saturday” of sports and then talk about some of the holidays and observances in the month of May.  We then go right into a fascinating conversation with veteran, meteorologist and award-winning author Buzz Bernard about his multifaceted career and about his life as an author.  

Mr. Bernard shares his story about how he first became interested in writing and the experience of pushing through some two hundred rejection letters before finally getting an agent and becoming published.  He also talks about the process he follows in writing a book, including researching his subject matter for authenticity.  And we wrap up by covering some of the promotional aspects of being a published author. 

We look forward to hearing from you @ theboomerandxshow@yahoo.com

In Episode 15 we discuss the plethora of sports events occurring on Saturday.  We talk about the championship boxing match taking place that night in Las Vegas and make our predictions about the outcome. We then cover some basics about horse racing and the Triple Crown as a lead-in to the Kentucky Derby. We finish our conversation with a bit of education about the purpose of and rules governing the NFL Draft.  After that, my son, John Jr, joins for some in-depth draft analysis and his opinions about the first few rounds of the ongoing NFL draft.  It’s a Boom and X sports extravaganza!!  We hope you enjoy it!
