MOST RECENT SHOW

6/4/22:  People are MAD about rising gas prices and are speaking out.  You’ll hear about a chemical additive in soft drinks that has a long history of making people sick.  Our taste test focuses on those cans of potato chips.  Elizabeth takes us to a gigantic underground cheese storage facility in Missouri and you’ll hear how to match up your SUV/truck with a travel trailer.


PREVIOUS SHOWS:

5/28/22:  Memorial Day Weekend 2022.  Why ARE gas prices so high right now? Elizabeth has some some an$wer$.  (hint: follow the money!)  Our taste test looks at several popular flavored-beers, Elizabeth takes us to Corbin KY, the birthplace of  KFC and you’ll meet Mike Adams, the CEO of POP RVs and Pop Yachts.



5/21/22:   So rather than stop the aerial spraying of aluminum, Monsanto is allegedly creating aluminum resistant seeds and you’ll hear how badly the FDA and USDA have handled the baby formula mess. In “Restaurant Pet Peeves,” we discovered either an honest mistake, or a new way workers can ring up a few extra bucks!  In the travel hour, you’ll hear about Florida’s notorious Love Bugs and how to get them off your RV.  Elizabeth has more information regarding pilot shortages and in “Destination Unknown” we travel to a small town in Amish Country Indiana.


5/14/22:  You’ll hear more information about the baby formula shortage and how the company at the center of a nationwide recall, may have been the victim of corporate sabotage!  This comes as we’re learning more about the string of fires and mishaps at other food processing plants across the country and it’s hard not to see that there is an evil, concerted effort at work here.  Plus, you’ve seen the high price of diesel, now we’re getting word that there is a serious diesel fuel shortage.  Without diesel, nothing gets moved from the warehouses to the grocery stores.  In our exclusive taste test, we found one clear winner comparing Ginger Beers.  Elizabeth shares the story of how a passenger was forced to take the controls of a small plane when the pilot slumped over in his captain’s chair.  Our Destination Unknown takes us to The World of Barbie that opens this summer.


5/7/22:   Despite ALL the seemingly bad news right now in both the food and travel industries, Elizabeth is bubbling with optimism that America will pull through.  You’ll hear about the WH Food Summit, how the dairy industry is terrified of raw milk, and our taste test focuses on Nation Salsa Month.  In the travel hour, you’ll hear why the Real ID that the government is pushing is a horrible idea and gives them an unwanted National ID system.  Plus, you’ll hear how those solar panels on the roof of your RV may be killing your batteries, how a cruise line mishandled an outbreak of illness and Elizabeth takes us deep into the Everglades to an Old Florida historic hotel.


4/30/22:  So… at the same time that grocery shelves are emptying, diesel fuel to transport goods is at a record high, fertilizer is unavailable and inflation is eating away at your budget…. the USDA is bending over backwards to make sure CHINA has the agricultural tools IT needs to feed its people.  Last week, the state of Iowa and the USDA hosted an agricultural summit to help the CCP and CHINA!  Does this make ANY sense to anyone?  It’s time to ask who the USDA is actually working for!    Elizabeth has some eye-opening thoughts.  In the travel hour, you’ll hear how to save some serious money when booking airline tickets, our deal of the week takes us to Las Vegas to see a former teen idol, and you’ll hear how the best way to “upgrade” your RV.   Plus, Cinco de Mayo is around the corner and Elizabeth has some tips for a great fiesta, and our taste test focuses in on tequila.


4/23/22:  While the mask mandates on planes, trains, busses and cruise ships is over (for now) there’s still a LOT to be concerned with right now:  food production factories are on fire, the food lobbyists want GMO oversight transferred to the lax USDA, and with gain of function capabilities in-hand, bird flu has made the jump to humans.  Summer travel plans still look strong despite gas prices, Elizabeth takes us to a museum in NYC where you don’t have to be high to enjoy the art/music (but it helps) and “the heat is on” as our taste test focuses in on hot sauce.



4/16/22  The lockdowns, mandates, government overreach and food shortages that we’re seeing may just be the beginning of a long, difficult period of American history.   Elizabeth shares some personal thoughts and what we need to do to prepare.  You’ll also hear how airline pilots are facing some serious challenges leading to flight cancellations and long delays.  Our Destination Unknown takes us to a beautiful hotel in Colorado with a creepy night tour and you’ll hear how to deal with RV roof leaks.

People are shocked at what they are learning… and consuming!  You’ll hear the latest food and travel news, Elizabeth takes us to a creepy doll museum, and how to pack your RV in case of a catastrophic event. Our taste test focuses on instant mashed potatoes and you’ll hear how TV manufacturers are hiding a camera into TVs and video monitors.


4/2/22  As if we don’t have enough to worry about, a new study shows just how prevalent glyphosate is in our food supply.  It’s shocking!  Elizabeth goes over the results.  You’ll also hear about how the latest bird flu has claimed millions of birds, and it’s time for farmers to bring in third-party testers.  Our taste test focuses on milk chocolate bunnies, you’ll hear tips on keeping your RV’s refrigerator working and Elizabeth takes us to an amazing museum in Minnesota.


3/26/22  Mother Nature intended that cows eat grass. So then why is the DNA of GMO corn turning up in the beef supply? Elizabeth explains why and the answer is not good!   Plus, you’ll hear how the government’s policy toward diesel fuel will have a devastating effect on the food supply lines through the spring/summer.  Our taste test focuses in on powdered protein drinks.  You’ll hear how NOT to destroy the transmission of your RV and Elizabeth’s Destination Unknown takes us to a Wichita museum international treasures.



3/19/22  Elizabeth shares the story of Ancel Keys.  In the 50’s, his “research” regarding red meat being responsible for heart disease has led to the current horrific American diet.  Problem is, his scientific methods SUCKED and he left out data from countries that proved his theory was WRONG.  You’ll also hear:  the latest food news, our taste test focuses on baked beans, how to beat the high price of gas in your RV and Elizabeth takes us to the High Country of Texas!


3/12/22  For years, we’ve been told to use plant-based oils with an emphasis on those that come from seeds.  Turns out, that may be bad advice.  We look at how seed oils can be destroying the health of people worldwide.  Plus Elizabeth says the government is stretching the truth (LYING) about inflation numbers, and that shrinkflation is a horrible way to treat customers.  You’ll also hear how, as a result of higher fuel prices, grocery store items (food) will cost even MORE over the next few months.  Plus, NOW is the time to buy RV tires if you need them, and our Destination Unknown takes us deep into the Florida Everglades for a visit to a Cold War Era Nike missile site.


3/6/22  Evil forces, both foreign and domestic are squeezing the America food supply right now.  Elizabet dug deeper into this and you’re NOT going to like what she found.  Our Toothpaste Taste Test last week led Elizabeth to do some research on what is actually IN the toothpaste recommended by her son’s dentist.  Turns out there’s a controversial ingredient in it.  Before you pick up the phone to order pizza, we put several brands to the test.  To keep it fair and simple, we tested ONLY a thin-crust cheese pizza.  We didn’t call it this during the program, but what this actually is…. is sort of a State of the RV Union address!   You’ll hear what’s happening in the industry right now heading into the spring and summer camping season.  Elizabeth shares a story that happened a few nights ago.  Whatever happened to hair nets?   There’s SO much to see and do this summer in the 49th State.  Elizabeth takes us “North to Alaska” to the Fairbanks Ice Museum followed by a relaxing stay at the Chena Hot Springs Resort.



2/26/22  The USDA has, once again, given us the stick with which to beat them. (figuratively of course) You’ll hear how the government agency that was empowered to protect the farmers and food supply in this country is actually working with scientists to take what’s usually a waste product from food production (garbage) and reintroduce it into the food supply.  The USDA convened a video conference call to discuss the latest bird flu outbreak across the country.  You’ll hear how the USDA appears to be more concerned about how this outbreak may impact the ability to sell turkeys to other nations.  In the most unusual of all our taste tests, we sampled toothpaste.  You’ll be surprised which band tastes the best AND has the cleaning power you expect.  Florida is our home and we love sharing peaceful, relaxing destinations that DON’T include mouse ears.  This week, Elizabeth takes us to Cedar Lakes Woods and Gardens in Williston, Florida.



2/19/22  This show has always been on the leading edge of asking questions.  In this case, we see reports of graphene oxide turning up in the air, food and water.   Can GO inside the human body be used to gain control of the human mind?  Plus, we’re seeing another round of a bird flu infecting both commercial and home farmers.   Is this yet another “planned event” like we’ve seen lately?  Since springtime picnics are finally on the horizon, Elizabeth sampled several name brand dill pickles.  Only ONE passed her taste test.  Your Ring Camera may be spying on YOU!   First Amendment Rights to Free Speech were trampled upon, paying airline customers were lied to, and oh yeah, an unruly passenger had to be brought down with a large commercial coffee pot!



2/12/22  At a time when there are food shortages in the grocery stores, the USDA seems to be bragging that in 2021, the US exported $177 BILLION dollars in food products to other countries.  Worse yet, $33 BILLION of that went to China!  Elizabeth takes us to Mountain Lake Lodge in Pembroke, Virginia, one of the primary filming sites for the Patrick Swayze/Jennifer Grey movie “Dirty Dancing.” We share the story of our own RV and instead of having a tune-up just before we purchased it, we found out that the original 2005 spark plugs were still in place.  So your new job allows you the “freedom” of working from home.  That may seem like a good idea, until they demand access to the computer that you’ll be using for work purposes.  Elizabeth shares the story of trying to book a cruise to Alaska.  It should have been easy… it wasn’t!



2/5/22  American farmers are very concerned because we’re seeing the full scope of an executive order signed last year.  30 percent of farm lands will be “taken” by the federal government by 2030.  Elizabeth tells the story of how a substance found in a pond in Pennsylvania has made its way onto grocery shelves.  In our Taste Test, we sample processed American cheese food slices used for making grilled cheeses sandwiches. In the second hour, Southwest Air has resumed the sale on in-flight adult beverages and not everyone is happy.  Our Destination Unknown takes you to the northernmost location ever.


1/29/22  You’ll learn more about the genetically modified Purple Tomato and how the company that’s developing it is LAUGHING at the lame USDA.  Elizabeth has an update on the protest underway by Canadian truck drivers and you’ll hear about an amazing maple syrup in our taste test of the week.  In the second hour, RV vacations you can take in the wintertime and why the cruise industry is getting hammered by Wall Street.  Our Destination Unknown could change tourism forever in Orlando once people discover the Chocolate Museum and Cafe just a short drive away from the “Mouse House.”


1/22/22  Expanded coverage of the empty grocery store shelves from around the country.  Eyewitness reports of food shortages doesn’t square up with the president’s words that the shelves are 90 percent full.  Our Taste Test focuses on Chicken Noodle Soup and you’ll hear about virtual reality grocery shopping,  In the travel segments, you’ll hear about how a North Korean missile launch briefly closed US airports, warm weather RV vacation hotspots and Elizabeth takes us to Arizona to see DINOSAURS!



1/15/22  At a time when you can’t find lunchmeat on the grocery shelves, the USDA (and Tom Vilsack) just announced a deal that sends American pork to India. Elizabeth has troubling news from China that could prompt yet another round of lockdowns and additional food shortages. Elizabeth has a possible explanation and you’re not gonna like it. Restaurant workers speak out about staff sicknesses and how those QR code systems are costing them tip money. You’ll hear from jabbed pilots who are experiencing career-ending medical illnesses. Elizabeth takes us to a small town in Florida that’s been called “The Spiritualist Capital of the World” and you’ll hear the story of a woman whose vacation was ruined by a cruise company’s hard line cancellation policy.


1/8/22  In our Severs Revenge segment, the new Mayor of New York City, has restaurant workers fuming mad at him!  You’ll hear how a planned global event (thanks to the work of some very evil people and organizations) is behind the food shortages.  Elizabeth tells how the new GMO labeling law is WORTHLESS and DECEITFUL.  Our Taste Test focuses on salsa.  You’ll hear what “unruly” airline passengers are charged with, and Elizabeth takes us to a remarkable mansion in the mountains of Phoenix.


1/1/22  Our first show of the year and we have a LOT to cover.  You’ll hear about the new food labeling law that supposedly goes into effect today and all the loopholes the industry created for itself.  We share the story of the Delta Airlines Christmas Mask Karen, plus the grossest food combinations for 2022 and Elizabeth takes us to warm vacation spots in January.
