Yaadinfo Ep. 040: Pimping the Port | Dog Doo-Doo Fight | Barbados Fingered in More Abuses
"Barbados - An island that reaches past all your stress & gets inside of you" Heeey!! Not our words...that's an actual quote from a Barbados tourism advertisement. But the latest news items sure do give that quote a WHOLE NEW perspective! We try to put a finger (c'mon, how could we let that pass?) on what may be the source of the latest Barbados PR woes.
But first we've got a story of the woman who body-slammed a dog, and assaulted it's owner - all because of poop. The takeout restaurant that has cocaine on the menu, and the Transport Minister's plea for locals not to pimp the newest port.
Yaadinfo Ep. 039: Small Breasts, Big Con | Roaches Swarm Food Shop | Reggae Pizza
All OLINT investors will shed a little tear for this one: David Smith pleads guilty to fraud charges. Cash Plus is also in the news, as it seems Carlos Hill wasn't the only one trying to swindle us out of our money. But in this case the allegations are against a well-established, multinational company!
This week we also look at British nationals who want to be Jamaican, British pizza that wants to be reggae, and a British artiste dying under strange circumstances. There's also the con job - small breasted con-artists, and stripping con-artists. Another week on the LIGHTER SIDE!
Yaadinfo Ep. 038: Manatt Powder?? | Red Fire Rum | Kartel via Satellite
Dem a sprinkle di oil an' powda!! Spin yu roll and enjoy another week of the Yaadinfo Podcast as we look at new twist to the Manatt saga - mysterious envelopes sent to participating attorneys. Also this week, PM Bruce Golding takes the stand, and commissioner Emil George takes a stand for his "missing" gavel.
Mmmmmm, let's see what else was in the news... Here's a good one: "Visa, Shmisa!!" Vybz Kartel will perform for a Miami audience -- get this -- via satellite. And Red Stripe enters the Rum market, albeit inauspiciously - early reviews ARE NOT GOOD! Don't worry though, the podcast is ALWAYS good! :}
Ragga-ragga-ragga-ragga...so goes the song by an entertainer named for a "scandal" bag, and oh what a scandal we have on our hands this week! Popular daytime show host, Kingsley "Ragashanti" Stewart, was kicked off the airwaves yet again by the broadcasting commission. Just prosecution, or unfair persecution??? We delve into the mix-up!
But there's a lot more wacky news to cover: gangsters nabbed in church, cake soap profits on the rise, Christian couples enjoying porn, and Everald "Warrington" Warmington. It's podcast time!
Yaadinfo Ep. 036: Pastor Caught with Weed | Addi di Lecturer | West Indies Bowled!
In the first segment of the podcast we interview Kenute Hare - Director of the Road Safety Unit in the Ministry of Transport and Works. This interview follows up on last week's story about the current ban on importation of used tyres, and the push by some stakeholders to have that ban lifted.
After the serious stuff, we look at the Trinidadian pastor who wants more than just the Holy Spirit, discuss the benefits of stoning the west Indies team (maybe a good suggestion), take a quick visit to the Manatt circus, and drink some Vybz Rum at the Kartel lecture at the University of the West Indies.
Yaadinfo Ep. 035: Follow Di Bokkle | Bomb Threat a Hoax | Day of Rage???
Dandy shandy!! Cock-up is a TEN!! Bounty and Kartel show their skills at "sighting" bottles and sprinting, at St. Mary stage show. If Kartel could get a visa to England, we'd probably send him to the London olympics.
Maybe we should start "bokkling" the politicians - a student has started a campaign in the media calling for a Jamaican revolution akin to what has taken place in Egypt and Tunisia. No doubt Bruce Golding will try to wiggle his way out of that just like he's trying to wiggle his way out of testifying at the Manatt Commission of Enquiry. More Manatt, more Finsac and a little Scratch Perry, all on this week's podcast.
Yaadinfo Ep. 034: Flour price up | Buju locked up | Business Owners F’ed up!
Many things can get you locked up - this week's podcast looks at a host of Jamaicans in lock up for a host of reasons. From credit card fraud to conspiracy to traffic in cocaine, we seem to be clamouring to get BEHIND the prison bars.
You'd think that after 400 years of bondage we'd relish every last second of our freedom. But hey, some people say we should be locked up...in an insane asylum! The podcasts are THAT crazy!!!!
Yaadinfo Ep. 033: Manatt Enquiry or Circus? | CIA Agent Phillips?? | Cass-cass in Parliament
Gather round good people of Jamaica!!! It's just 5p to enter the Big Top where you'll be treated to the most hilarious performers on show at this here circus. K. D. the Jester, Phipps the provocateur, and the bumbling, fumbling Emil.
Other sideshows include illiterate JUTC drivers, an informant with shady information, and a tracing match in the House of Parliament. Yes folks, the circus has come to town!!
Yaadinfo Ep. 032: Pick Some Plums, Lose Your Gun | Golding, Lightbourne Lies?? | Cops Unfriend Facebook
Aye-ya-yi!!! Last week when we asked Johnny who he thought was the dumbest criminal he said Rev. Al. This week, the good Rev. decided to prove Johnny right...SIGH...the man loves his plums it seems. Also ripe for the picking, are some of the juicy tidbits coming from the Manatt Commission of Enquiry.
Other news items in the spotlight this week: Police try to catch Satan (but first they need to sign out of Facebook), man arrested on toilet, a rasta national hero, and a rastamouse.
Yaadinfo Ep. 031: Don is Don, Donovan a Donovan | Thugs Play with Each Other's Pistols | Wining & Fining in Trinidad
Go to JAIL, go directly to JAIL - do NOT pass GO, do not collect $200, go directly to JAIL! Well that's what's gonna happen if you try to smuggle drugs into (of all places) Jail!! Seriously?? Can anyone say "shoe-in for dumbest criminal of the year award"?
And while for years, Jamaican thugs have tried to prove that they are Dons not Donovans, as well as bad men not "men", this week we found "Pepsi" trying to prove that he is just Donovan and three bad "men" caught in the act. If you don't get it, ah cyaan help yu! Check out the podcast.
Yaadinfo Ep. 030: Dog Paw | Dog Racing | Brady in the Dog-House
Drama unfolds in the Manatt Commission of Enquiry, as attorney Harold Brady refuses to testify. But his punishment may be a measly J$500!! Yet another reason to question the purpose of the enquiry, and the cost to the Jamaican taxpayer - we spend J$40 Million, we earn 500 bucks!
Also in the news: Police take in one of Jamaica's Most Wanted....ALIVE!!! "Dog Paw" is captured in a massive operation by the security forces, but the cops have yet to capture the kleptomaniacs behind missing paintings on loan to Government agencies. Oh well, you can win 'em all.
Yaadinfo Ep. 029: Cake soap | Cash Plus | Crash Plus
This week we're supposed to be covering CASH PLUS, CRASH PLUS and maybe even a CRASH BUS. But something tells me we're gonna spend most of the podcast debating CAKE SOAP and its "benefits".
Cash plus liquidators were liquidated, Captain Burrell's helicopter crashed into a coconut tree, military gear made in China, and football in Vietnam will probably take second place to "Addi di Bleacha". Air C in di car, Air C in di studio, podcast time!!!
Yaadinfo Ep. 028: LNG Project full of Gas | Man Steals Identity, then Reports it Stolen | Honduran Cruise Ship or Fishing Boat??
When a vessel comes into your waters with hundreds of people on board, you usually direct them to the craft market, NOT shoot them up! But I guess Hondurans never quite figured the answer to the question: "How many fishermen does it take to pillage a neighbour?" And speaking of ventures gone awry, did you hear the one about why the LNG project smelled funny? It was full of gas!! Whoaaaa Nelly!!! We're on a roll here!!!
Ok, ok, so we'll stick to our day jobs, but somebody please put this idiot out of his misery - the guy steals someone's identity and then calls the cops to report it stolen!! Unfortunately we can't report all these bank fees we're charged by the second as stolen property, but Jamaicans continue to be swindled by two-armed bandits in fancy suits. New year, same ol' drama!!
