About EpicTimes: It’s not about WHO is right or wrong – it’s about WHAT is right or wrong. We are very excited to deliver directly to you some of the most influential voices spanning a variety of expertise, all designed to help you “opt-in” to the things that most directly impact your life and “opt-out” of the insanity of the so-called solutions brought to you by the permanent political class, the crony capitalists, the media cheerleaders, the purveyors of perpetual outrage, and the seemingly endless collection of focus group phonies.
About The Jerry Doyle Show: It’s the fourth largest syndicated talk show in America, with over 7.25 million weekly listeners (according to Talkers Magazine). Bringing with him a twelve year acting career in Hollywood including the Emmy Award winning television series Babylon 5 and a decade as an Investment Banker on Wall Street in the heady days of the “Greed is Good” mentality Jerry has seen the good and bad of two of Americas largest industries – money and entertainment. The Jerry Doyle Show isn’t a platform for Republican talking points, although he ran for Congress as a Republican in 2000 he is now a registered independent. Jerry says he didn’t leave the Republican Party, it left him. We address the issues through the lens of a fiscal conservative, social libertarian who is more interested in finding solutions than wallowing in phony outrage.
