I won. Why am I disappointed?

I won a national award. I beat out 1700 other college radio stations for the title of best political coverage. And it’s cool, but still I’m frustrated. And somehow I’m still disappointed. Last week I was in New York City for a conference called the IBS Conference, otherwise known as the Intercollegiate Broadcast System. And…

“I’d like my three billion dollars please…”

A man walks into a bank and says “I’d like to withdraw three billion dollars please.” The teller looks at him at responds “sure!” This isn’t an every day interaction but it just happened rather recently in Seattle. Wells Fargo, the countries third largest bank by assets, just had Seattle remove three billion dollars from…

The State of Liberty

Everybody seems to want to leave. California is talking about seceding from the Union. Part of Colorado wants to become its own state. And now Washington might split in two. Yup, if some lawmakers get their way, everything east of the Cascades may soon be the State of Liberty. I’m not kidding. And all regulations,…

Uber Scandals: They’re Only Hurting Themselves

It’s not a good week to be Uber. First off, they apparently didn’t do enough to go against Trump’s latest controversial executive order regarding the infamous travel ban. With one of their top execs working on a Trump business panel, it’s hard to appease both the government and their users. And unfortunately they chose the…

Losing History: Where Are We Without the Arts?

I’ve long been a fan of art, history, culture, and periods of the past. And if I’m being totally honest, I get much more satisfaction enjoying things from long before my time than anything that I see around me now. Even though I know this isn’t exactly the norm. When I was home for winter…

We all get 24 Hours: Are you using yours?

What do you do with your 24 hours that you have in a day? Does it have purpose or are you wasting it? For the first few years of my college career I couldn’t have been any lazier. I skated by, planning my future but never building towards it. I wanted to be in radio,…

Innovation Over: The Bland State of Apple

  When was the last time you heard something new and exciting coming out of Apple? The innovation well has run dry, and frankly, I’m getting a little bored. The biggest story about this company as of late? Three new iPads and a special anniversary iPhone. Big whoop! I’ve seen it. I’ve used it. I’m…

O Canada: Tolerance Eh?

Canada is batshit crazy. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the rest of Canada have flung themselves into the arms of insanity all for a little social justice love. I’m not sure if it’s gotten so cold in Canada that people have lost their minds or if they just have always been this way. Allow me…

If You Like Huffpo You’re Gonna Hate This…

Diversity in the workplace. Some people shout from the rooftops how tolerant and open minded they are while not so secretly their hypocrisy rings loud enough for all to hear. Recently, The Huffington Post, ever the standard for journalistic integrity, posted a picture of their editors. My conservative heart was dismayed to discover that Huffpo…

The Jackson Sager Radio Program 5/11/16

The Jackson Sager Radio Program for 5/11/16. I discuss Caitlyn Jenner posing nude, Facebook is allegedly censoring Conservative media, and Students for Trump President Isaiah Ammon joins me live in the studio.

Bush Burnout: How Jeb Bush Lost

Last year many political pundits pegged Jeb Bush to be the inevitable GOP candidate, citing his establishment appeal and his alleged ability to do battle with Hillary Clinton. Now, as the Republican field narrows to a more manageable three from its once comically large numbers, the loss of Jeb Bush is somewhat shocking. Put aside…
