Show Notes for Friday November 15, 2019

Today we visit with Anson Williams, best known as POTSIE from Happy Days. He has also been in many other movies and TV shows. He had a near death experience when he drove off the road due to drowsy driving. He is now a huge advocate for safer driving. He created a product called Alert Drops to help keep people awake while driving (or doing anything else... like studying)

Authorities accuse an Arizona man of hiding methamphetamine inside a stuffed animal and cereal boxes as he shipped packages of the drug to Massachusetts. Federal investigators said they discovered 27-year-old Brandon Greenberg of Phoenix had mailed more than twenty packages to addresses in Somerville and Boston. Authorities said that the packages contained methamphetamine. Greenberg, who was indicted on federal charges of conspiring to distribute methamphetamine and distribution of methamphetamine, will appear in a Boston federal court Tuesday. Investigators said that one of the packages they checked contained two Ziploc-style bags, one wrapped in a small blanket and the other secreted inside a stuffed bunny rabbit. The bags contained just under 940 grams of methamphetamine. Authorities added, “Later in the investigation, agents conducted a controlled purchase of methamphetamine from Greenberg and seized 486 grams hidden inside three cereal boxes that were then placed in a package mailed by Greenberg.” (

The name Hermione came from Shakespeare’s “A Winter’s Tale.” Rowling says when she chose the name, she “didn’t want a lot of fairly hard-working little girls to be teased if ever the book was published.”

Kay Wilson packed up her life in a hurry and moved to Los Angeles... only to find that what she paid in Pennsylvania for a nice studio apartment would only get her a 2.9-square-meter box in California. Her new home is a capsule, inspired by the famous hotels in Japan. Wilson arrived a month ago at UP(st)ART, a community for young people with artistic aspirations in need of an affordable place to live. Each room contains up to six capsules, which Wilson describes as “cozy.” They contain a single bed, a bar for hanging clothes, a few compartments for storing shoes and other items, and an air vent. By most standards, the accommodation is still not cheap -- $750 per month plus taxes. That works out at around $800, which is slightly more than the 26-year-old was paying in Bethlehem, around seventy miles outside Philadelphia. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

Two North Carolina fast-food workers were fired after one of them refused to take a cop’s food order last week. A cashier and a manager at a Cook Out restaurant in Roxboro were canned after the cashier allegedly wouldn’t take an order from Kenneth Horton — an army veteran and Roxboro police sergeant. We’re saddened that an employee denied service to a police officer,” Roxboro Police Chief David Hess told the outlet. “We promote unity. Unfortunately, it’s all because of a small action that could have been avoided.” The manager on duty told the network she was fired for not being more attentive to Horton once her colleague refused him service. She didn’t reveal why the cashier refused to serve Horton — just that she was in the back of the restaurant when the cashier asked another worker to take the officer’s order. (
