Paul Hughes was once a radio producer for the Music Control evening show, but had always been a train-nut since he was a child. So he chased his dream and became a Train Conductor, and now he is an Operations Manager of one of the largest train stations in the country.
Ed and Paul talk about the beauties of train travel, the strange things that Train Conductors witness and the sometimes dangerous and sometimes noble duty of the train conductor.
Ed & Friends takes a different tone this week as Ed talks to his friend and cousin Sgt. James Russell, and while they talk about life in the US Military, the subject inevitably turns to tomorrow’s Presidential election.
Ed asks how a soldier reacts to Presidential candidates that evoke the military in their campaigns, whether they are bending the facts to aid their campaign or disrespecting the families of fallen soldiers. Jim, a man that does not waste his words, gives Ed his views on Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and the duty of a soldier.
Donald Trump’s interview on The Hugh Hewitt Show where he is challenged on his foreign policy, which includes his claim that he “would be so good at the military, your head will spin” about 2m55s in to the clip.
NOTE: Since the recording of this episode of Ed & Friends, the FBI have revealed that the further emails discovered on Anthony Weiner’s laptop are not pertinent to Hillary Clinton’s case and the FBI will be take no new action against Clinton, as reported by The New York Times.
