abstinence and babies

The Majority Report Circle of life is now complete. !3 hours after the end of our last M-F show on AAR, Jessica, our segment producer gave birth to Annabelle Jordan Woods!

Oh and based on the results of this study, Jessica could have conceived as a result of taking an abstinence pledge.


I planned to write more here by now, but I'm a bit tired and I am taking myla to swim classes! I'll have more soon and will announce some blog news I think you'll like.

Thank you all for the emails, snail mails and comments of support, I am truly blown away.

Friday: The Last Casual Friday

Stay tuned for a blog message directly from Sam after the show, but in the mean time, this will have to suffice. We're going out with a bang today, as we welcome friends of the show all day long. We'll have Marc Maron and Joe Conason, plus a helping of surprise callers and wellwishers. And most importantly, we're welcoming YOU. So give us a call, at 866-303-2270. It's Casual Friday!

Thursday: Hi, Senator

We welcome a real, genuine U.S. Senator to the show today, in the form of the great Russ Feingold, Democrat from Wisconsin. We'll ask him if he's bummed that he's not the father of Anna Nicole's baby. But we're not stopping with Senator Feingold, we've got an action packed show for you today. We'll have blogger Atrios, John Amato from Crooks and Liars, Katrina vanden Heuvel from The Nation, and "Senator" Katherine Harris. What a freakin' show! Get down on your hands and knees and thank the heavens for this one. And the next one. Cause that's all there is left.

Wednesday: We're Your Safe Haven From Terror...For Three More Days

We're fightin 'em on the air, so you don't have to fight them in person. Today we welcome Italian journalist Carlo Bonini, who's done some great work investigating the forged Niger documents that were instrumental in forging the lies that took us into Iraq. His new book is called, Collusion: International Espionage and the War on Terror. Plus we'll have Christy Harvey from the Center for American Progress and blogger, author, and activist David Sirota.

Tuesday: The Revolucion Begins

We're counting down the final days of the Sam Seder Show as you know it, and today we're heating up the studio just a bit. The forecast calls for romance, as Sam welcomes his wife Nicole Cattell, who will talk about her new documentary, REVOLUCION: Five Visions, which airs tonight on PBS. Plus we'll have two attorneys-turned-bloggers, Christy Hardin-Smith from Firedog Lake, and Glenn Greenwald from Unclaimed Territory. So open up a nice bottle of champagne, put on something a little more comfortable, and get ready for the Sam Seder Show.

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce that this week will be the last week of the Sam Seder Show on Air America. As you know, Air America recently came out of Chapter 11 bankruptcy and the new management wants to go in a different direction with the 9-Noon (est) time slot. However, as much as I would like to spend more time with Alberto Gonzales’ family, he will be doing so shortly, freeing me up to do a Sunday afternoon show on Air America Radio. The show is tentatively known as Seder on Sundays and I am excited to get it started.

I am very proud of the three years I have broadcast on Air America Radio. I am particularly proud of the Sam Seder Show. We started the show as AAR was entering bankruptcy, when things around here were pretty hectic and insecure. The Sam Seder juggernaut, as no one but me called us, was able to maintain all of our affiliates that stayed with the progressive format through our bankruptcy. While it’s a bit early to judge, (our first full “book” is out in a couple of weeks) our ratings were looking pretty good and we dramatically increased AAR’s streaming numbers during this time slot. Most importantly, though, was the support and response we received from you, our audience. You'll never know just how helpful and motivating your comments, calls, emails and letters have been to me and my family and I greatly appreciate it.

I hope all of you will join me when I begin the Sunday show in the next month and a half or so. Of course, I’ll be maintaining this blog and continuing to promise to fix it. ( I mean it this time, I am serious!) I actually have some rather large plans for this site and its offerings but am not prepared to discuss them at the moment.

Anyway, over the next week I’ll be posting more about my plans, this site, Seder on Sundays and reflecting upon the last three years.

My email address is posted in the left hand column of this blog— drop me an email if you want to receive updates in the future. And tune in this week! I really don’t know how I am going to break this to Dewey.
