Rusty Satellite 73 – Mike Maloney and Ashley Anderson

The holidays are here, and Rusty’s in a celebrating mood. My first guest is Mike Maloney, whose cool job it is to coordinate events like Light Up Louisville. That celebration gets going Friday night and is bigger and better than ever. Mike and I go way back to the time we worked together at a local firm, Ironmax, part of the dot-com bubble.

Ashley Anderson is among the youngest Rusty guests at 25, but her life and passions include sports media, television reporting and competing in fitness contests. And she may be our next Jennifer Lawrence. Ashley has taken acting classes and is auditioning for parts in all sorts of productions.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to spend much show time talking about the controversy surrounding Ferguson, Mo., but I did find it interesting seeing the procession of protesters downtown this week. There’s news about the Ark Encounter in Kentucky, and a bigoted Bullitt County Fire Chief is getting our area the wrong kind of national attention. A study says Louisville is the third unhappiest city in the U.S. And the long-awaited football game between UK and the Cards is set for Saturday. It’s all in this week’s Thanksgiving episode of The Rusty Satellite Show.
