This Monday (4/25) The Lid Radio Show will have two great guests; Dan Bennett, Corporate Juggler, Mathematician and very funny Comedian, and Rick Wilson high powered Republican Strategist/ Consultant who knows everybody and everything about the world of politics.   So be sure to tune in by clicking on these SHR Media network or High Plains Talk Radio links.

Our 2pm guest will be Dan Bennett,Comedian, Corporate Juggler, and Mathematician. I met Dan two  years ago I was on an Alaskan cruise and he was the entertainer–my stomach still hurts from all the laughing I did during his act.

DBPostDan Bennett is a “mathemagician” of the first order, a language and prop manipulatist of professorial proportions with a name you can swear by (Dan Bennett!!*$$!!). He also claims to be an inventor who reinvented wheel with 800 moving parts.

His shows combine skilled manipulation of sports equipment and everyday objects with original wit, energy and lots of enthusiasm.

Dan has a million frequent floater miles from cruise ships, and if you are ever deciding on a cruse and find out Dan is the entertainment…book it ASAP, his shows are worth the cost of the trip.

While earning his bachelor`s degree in mathematics, Dan worked as a teaching assistant in the math lab. His love for teaching soon spilled over into tutoring with comedy. Eventually he was holding workshops in calculus and mixing mathematics with humor. While lecturing about ballistics he devised the object lesson now so central to his performances: catching a bowling ball with his face. There was no turning back once he discovered how fun it was to entertain with math, physics and economics. Intellectual joke telling evolved into scientific bravado which in turn utilized the visual aids of juggling, balancing and prop manipulation.

On that cruise where we met Dan we also learned he not only funny, and a skilled juggler prop manipulatist, but he is also a conservative.   You will enjoy our visit with Dan which will include tons of laughs and no need for a calculator. And make sure to join me in following Dan on twitter @dannerism


Our guest at 2:30 is Republican Strategist/Consultant Rick Wilson, national Republican political strategist and media consultant based in Florida who has produced television for governors, U.S. Senate candidates, super PACS, and corporations. When it comes to politics Rick Wilson is a big deal.

therickwilson_1460058085_28Rick Wilson is a Republican political strategist and media consultant with over 20 years of experience in national and statewide candidate campaigns, ballot measures, independent expenditure efforts, corporate and government public affairs, brand management, and crisis communications.

He’s helped elect Presidents, Governors, U.S. Senators, Members of Congress, statewide Cabinet officers and state legislators. His company Intrepid Media has served over 100 candidates, state parties, the national committees, SuperPACS, corporate and association clients since its founding.

The creator of some of the most famous (and infamous) television spots of the last two decades, Rick is one of the GOP’s most prominent voices, and the man ABC News called the mastermind behind one of the most brilliant ads of the 2014 cycle. A frequent commentator on CNN, MSNBC, and other networks, he was recently profiled in the New York Times.

Rick writes for The Daily Beast, Politico, The New York Daily News, The Federalist,Independent Journal Review, and Ricochet.

Wilson founded his own firm, Intrepid Media, in 2000. He lives in Tallahassee, Fla., with his wife and two children.

 Politico called Rick Wilson one of the top twenty tweeters. They described his twitter persona as a “master of the political put-down, whimsical zinger and apropos sound bite and a lover of argument to whom everything is fair game.

Wilson’s feed is not for the faint of heart. Liberals [Actually its more than liberals], particularly those who are self-serious, are apt to be driven apoplectic by its constant partisan drumbeat and over-the-top language.
