This Thursday, Dean and I are hosting a very special edition of the Jared and Dean WordsCause Radio Show. You may have seen the stuff on Myspace the other day with Hayden Panettiere promoting her cause (very worthy cause BTW, Whaleman). Well, SocialVibe.com is the service she’s using to promote her cause and SocialVibe is what we have!

We’ll have Joe Marchese, a social networking genius, on the show talking about how you too can utilize SocialVibe to make a difference for your cause. With widgets for the great social networks like Myspace and Facebook, you don’t want to miss this special edition of the Jared and Dean WordsCause Radio Show on BlogTalkRadio.com!

Hillary announced that she plans to help finance the national debt with her personal funds, much like she’s financed her successful Presidential campaign! I’m not sure this is really the best idea, but the more I think about it… This is sounding pretty good. If she cares about our country this much, let her spend the money. Hillary 2008!

The largest state in The Union now recognizes the marriage (not just civil union) of same sex partners. Of course, this draws a lot of attention to this heated issue, as religious groups vow to create a California constitutional amendment to ban same sex marriages.

I can’t say that Dean and I are masters of prediction, but the series of events that have unfolded here in California over the last several months could not have hit the top of the news headlines at a better time than today. This is a good reminder about the Jared and Dean Words Cause Radio Show this weekend!

We have the founder of Fertility Counseling Services, Kim Bergman, joining us to discuss gay parenting. Of course, we’ll be sure to ask her about this historic day and the impact that it is going to have on her business and the GLBT community as a whole. You don’t want to miss this great show. Catch it live this Sunday at 6PM Pacific!

Of course, you can always hear it @ wordscause.com and on your iPod or MP3 Player.

I just love Urban Dictionary! Just the other day, I was listening to a radio show on BlogTalkRadio.com, and they were talking about side pieces and the jumpoff. They were using the two terms practically interchangeably, which is incorrect. To be sure, I did a search on Urban Dictionary, and one could argue that they are the same things, but there are very technical differences between a side piece and a side piece.

But this blog isn’t about side pieces or the jumpoff. It’s about another piece of slang that I wasn’t aware of at all until this Sunday. I had the co-founder of Single Tease (no, it’s not a porn site), Tamera Lawrence, on the show talking about her great T-shirts that help break the ice between people. You can listen to a piece of it on Words Cause.

During the interview, she mentioned that the chest area of a woman is referred to as “the region”.

I had no idea!

I asked some women at work if they knew about “the region”, and they were familiar with this term for their chest. I went to Urban Dictionary, and “the region” was only defined as Northwest Indiana. So, I added a new definition for “the region”:

Tasteful female slang for the area of their body containing their boobs
She wore a T-shirt with text printed above The Region

All of humanity needs your help! Check out the page for “the region” on Urban Dictionary and click on the thumbs-up for the new definition! It is currently the third definition listed.

Thanks for your support!

Some of our largest environmental problems have not been caused by who you might think. Often, environmentalists cite the Bush Administration or “capitalists” as causes for major environmental problems. Yet, the contributors to some of the largest environmental problems we face today are none other than environmentalists. They are environmentalists who jump on the band wagon of plastic vs. paper bags or electric cars or ethanol fuel.

Plastic saves trees but bio-degrades only after 900 years, is made from crude oil materials, and has amassed such a large pile of garbage that there is now a massive island of trash floating in the Pacific Ocean

The electric car is a mythological zero emission vehicle

And bio-fuels will lead to deforestation.

Don’t contribute to the problem, educate yourself by listening to my radio show this weekend. Dean and I have some great guests on the show, and we’ll be talking about environmentalists who damage the environment.

There’s not shortage of love on my part for Internet Radio powerhouse BlogTalkRadio.com. I have my own show that I co-host with a great friend of mine each week. We’ve had some really amazing guests on the show over the last few weeks, and the show gives us a lot of inspiration. We aren’t the only ones that seem to be inspired by our show. With tens of thousands of listeners on BlogTalkRadio.com every day, they have access to hundreds of great shows about several different topics, ranging from the paranormal to conservative politics.

So, it comes as no surprise that BlogTalkRadio.com was chosen as a Webware 100 Winner! What makes this most impressive is that this Internet Radio powerhouse is the only All-Talk site listed under the audio category in the Webware 100. Keeping company with sites such Amazon mp3, iTunes, Zune, and the other music download sites is impressive. Let’s face it, downloading music is what most people on the Internet are looking for. Yet, BlogTalkRadio.com has managed to capture the hearts (and ears) of so many people on the web to be ranked with these music download websites. Big congratulations to BlogTalkRadio.com!

On Earth Day, I was able to get a brief moment with George Bush to Interview him about his new environmental plan. I’ll be airing it on my Radio Show tomorrow on BlogTalkRadio.com. Of course, the show is one hour long and the interview was only about 2 1/2 minutes, so I need to make sure that I have something else on the show. But I really do have an Interview with George Bush about his environmental plan that you don’t want to miss.

Dean and I will be talking with womentrepreneurs who started their successful businesses in each of these fields this Saturday morning!

Dean and Jared are very excited about the three guests on this week’s Dean and Jared Words Cause Radio Show here on BlogTalkRadio.com. We have three incredible women who have taken their passion and flipped it on it’s side to generate great business opportunities, not just for them but for hundreds of people!

We all remember Yankee Doodle Dandy, but what’s the story behind Yankee Doodle Dandy? And why is he on a Harley?!?

Writer and Producer of a 17-minute promotional documentary on Yankee Doodle Dandy, Suzy Goodman-Pollack, joins Dean and Jared on this Saturday’s Show! More than just a character promoting genius, Suzy is an incredibly successful womentrepreneur. She runs several businesses, including Creative Balloons Mfg. Inc., a family owned and operated business-to-business company that manufactures balloons and accessories that are sold worldwide! She has literally created opportunity out of thin air!

Then, we’ll be chatting with co-founder of of Internet darling PassPack: Tara Kelly. Learn how Tara took an art school education and turned it into a vision to survivie the brutal startup landscape. Handling all the social aspects of the business, from sales to marketing to PR, she’s one of the womentrepreneurs of Web 2.0!

PassPack is an online password manager giving users secure access to their personal web account from any Internet connection, while also encouraging better password habits. It makes it easier for you to safely forget your passwords! It’s a web application that stores your passwords so that no one can read them but you – not even PassPack. How do they do it? You’ll have to listen live to hear.

Tara will also be our second international guest in as many weeks! Last week’s womentrepreneur show featured the founder of Soul at Work in Amsterdam, Marianne Korten. Tara has been in Rome for the last 10 years. We’ll be sure to ask her if they missed the Pope last week.

But WAIT!!! There’s more!

We’ll also be chatting with the founder of Dancehelp.com, Christine Schambera. Dancehelp.com, a free online dance publication that offers original, unique articles on everything dance. Articles range from nutrition, performance and technique, to stage lighting, chorography and dance history. Dancehelp also offers employment and audition listings, chat forums, dance photos and videos, product reviews, press releases, dance dictionaries, biographies, as well as dance event information and original dance reviews on dance events in Southern California.

Albert Einstein once stated, “Dancers are the athletes of God”. Dean and Jared are excited about having Christine on the show. We’re hoping that Dean ends up with some dance lessons out of this show!

Internet Radio is one of the coolest things to spice up the Internet since, well… the advent of social networks like myspace and facebook. BlogTalkRadio.com takes Internet Radio to a whole new level.

I’m not saying this just because I have a show on BTR. I genuinely love this technology for several reasons:

  • Anyone can host a show and put together whatever type of content s/he wants!
  • Anyone can be a guest on someone’s show. Last week I had a guest call in from Amsterdam!
  • Anyone can listen to your show from anywhere in the world. Granted, if you don’t understand English, you won’t understand

And now, Internet Radio has just gotten a major boost in the ability to listen to shows without losing your show from page to page. In other words, listen to your favorite show while you browse around the web without having to open up another browser window or reset your position in the audio player! BTR has released a browser toolbar. Similar to the bars available for Google or Yahoo. Only this one integrates with BlogTalkRadio.com’s Internet Radio shows! You listen to the shows in another browser window that it deals with for you.

This has been one of my only complaints about Internet Radio. But BTW has no solved the problem! Very cool feature by a very cool Internet Radio network.

I know, the pervs were probably expecting some pictures of scantily clad women. For that, you should go here. For the rest of you, Dean and I had four incredibly amazing women on the Dean and Jared Words Cause Radio Show yesterday.

Laura and Lori have teamed up to provide amazing technological advancements in the health care industry.

Marianne quit a cushy job of 16 years to start her own business.

Rebekah is a mother of three boys, a wife of 17 years to a veteran, and the founder of more than half a dozen resources for health information.

How do they all do it? Click here to read a little bit more information about Laura, Lori, Marianne, and Rebekah.

What inspired them to go beyond their comfort zones? Listen to the Dean and Jared Words Cause Radio Show to find out!

I’ve been spending a lot of time researching PPC search engine Internet marketing techniques over the last several months. The truth is that I’ve dabbled in Internet marketing for years, but I was never part of an hundred million dollar Internet marketing campaign. Print, on the other hand… Print, I’ve generated more than $60 million from print marketing over the last 3 and a half years. Much of that print has driven Internet results, which means that I need to know enough about Internet marketing to be dangerous!

One of the things I love about my side job as a radio host for the WordsCause Radio Show on BlogTalkRadio.com is that I get to interview great people! This Saturday, I get to interview the guy behind the very successful Internet marketing campaigns of Jdate, True.com, and several other successful Internet companies in highly competitive fields: Patrick Thona.

Patrick has been working in the Internet marketing business for many years and has many successes under his belt with both PPC and organic traffic. His latest endeavor is an online petition website. He’ll be sharing some simple, yet powerful, secrets to his trade that we’ll all be able to put to use in our own online marketing efforts. Catch the Internet Talk Radio broadcast on BlogTalkRadio.com this Saturday at 10AM Pacific.
