Need recommendation-Content Management System

I'm looking for an easy to use content management system software for building an RSS feed for my podcasts. What is out there that works well, is easy to use, and won't cost too much money?

Re: Kyle Underwhelm

A former co-host of mine is an avid golfer and about four years ago ended up in a foursome with former WOOD TV chief meteorologist Craig James. He asked Craig when Bill Steffen was going to retire. Craig's answer was, "Never. He loves this stuff too much."

I hope Kalkaska's village idiot and his three stooges that didn't have the guts to show up at the village meeting last week all end up out of office.

Re: 9 YO Silenced At Lansing Meeting, Fink Says Violation Of Open Meetings Act

She has issued a half hearted apology. Nevertheless, it was a violation of the state Open Meetings Act. It also was a violation of that child's First Amendment rights of free speech and the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances. It could also be argued that the child's Fourtee...

1620 AM near Lowell

A friend of mine says during daytime hours he's picking up oldies music on AM 1620 near Lowell. They're not dropping a station ID at the top of the hour and the signal isn't bleeding over into other frequencies. Does anyone know if there's a low powered non licensed station operating at that frequen...

Re: Bet there wasn't a dry eye at 13 WZZM when this news arr

My senior thesis was about leveraged buyouts in broadcasting and I referenced the Grand Rapids Magazine article about what had happened at WZZM. If I remember, it was published as a two-part series. Good riddance to Bob Price. He destroyed a lot of people's lives over there during his reign as owner.

Re: Is Hillary Toast?

The New York Times is doing some very serious backtracking from their original story and have essentially admitted that Hillary did nothing illegal. Media Matters has been slamming the NYT for sloppy journalism.

Do I want her to be the candidate? Hell no! She's a corporatist.

Re: The Affordable Internet Act?

Of course JackOff FM has nothing nice to ever say about the President. Considering the Dow Jones is hovering around 18,000, that makes Obama a pretty fucking terrible socialist.

Jeff Irwin (D-53) is a good guy who has been on my show a couple of times. Changing the status quo is always an uphill battle. I don't see this bill catching fire with his colleagues.

Two million more people voted Democratic yet we have a regressive majority in both houses of Congress. That just proves one thing: gerrymandering works.
