Guns, Steroids, and Tea Parties plus Babka in Columbus

On today’s Downsize DC Conference Call, my one-hour, Sunday radio show, heard at 4:06 PM Eastern (3:06 PM Central, 2:06 PM Mountain, 1:06 PM Pacific), I’ll give you an interesting, almost irrefutable explanation for why the Major League Baseball/Mitchell Report is bad. I’ve changed the minds of avid sports fans with this argument.

We’ll also be talking about a few other things, including serial killers in malls and churches, particularly a new national hero of self-defense. But before I outline those things, I want to announce a personal appearance.


Tomorrow, Monday evening, I’ll be a speaker at the Columbus (Ohio) Ron Paul Meetup. The Meetup starts at 7:15 PM and takes place at Whetstone Branch Library 3909 N. High St.  Columbus, OH. Details and RSVP are available here.

Please, if you’re in the area, come out and meet me.


The Downsize DC Conference Call is about to grow. Starting today, I’m getting a better show clock with fewer commercial breaks and longer segments. Even better, I’m in talks with a program director at an FM talk radio station, and the Genesis Communications Network is offering to double my show to two hours. Should I take the extra hour?

I have more to say about this, below my signature. Please check it out.


My show, which is sponsored by, can be heard on a couple of stations, but the best way for nearly everyone on this list to hear the show is online at

As usual, we’ll have an update from my other sponsor, Gun Owners of America…

We’ve already done two updates about three of the Presidential contenders — John McCain, Bill Richardson, and Mike Huckabee. Today’s update will be about Fred Thompson.

And we will track the progress of the Tea Party Moneybomb. Call me if you are giving today.

And, if we have time, we’ll celebrate “Christmas in Fallujah.”

But I suspect that last item will have to wait till another episode, because you’ll be calling with great observations, insights, and questions for your knowledgeable host. It’s the number of callers and emailers that my show has been getting, lo these recent months, which has convinced my network I’m worth two hours. Thank you. Let’s keep it up.

The number is 1-800-259-9231. You can email the show at CALL at DOWNSIZEDC dot ORG.

Happy Listening,

Jim Babka
Downsize DC Conference Call

P.S. Guess which Genesis Communications Network (GCN) hosted show is the most popular program on Sundays? That’s right, the Downsize DC Conference Call. Audience levels have increased dramatically during 2007, and as a result, I’ve been offered a second hour. 

On top of that, I’m in talks with a program director about joining an FM talk station in a medium-sized market. This would be quite a coup, and would, probably all by itself, double my audience. It’s not a done deal yet, but wow is this exciting!

But in order to move forward, I really need additional sponsorship. To continue this show through 2008, it would be very helpful to have greater financial backing. Amongst other things, this would make it possible to expand the show to even more markets and spread the message of Downsizing DC far and wide. I now have several sponsorship packages available, starting at $160 per month.

We have just one weekly show sponsor slot — like Gun Owners of America has — guest sponsors slots, which makes it possible to book interesting guests, and an 800# sponsorship, which gets your company mentioned every time I give out the show’s phone number.

Advertisers need to fit in with my show format and image, and I’ll be the sole judge of that. Political candidate advertising will NOT be accepted. 

Should I accept the second hour? I really want to. Would you like to advertise your product or service to other DC Downsizers and the type of thoughtful listeners my show attracts? You can’t ask for better customers than that! Please contact me at CALL at DOWNSIZEDC dot ORG.

Normally, I only check email to that address on Sunday. But this week, I’ll be looking for an email from you.
