Four Episodes in one month!! I think we may be setting the bar a little high for ourselves this year.
Tony is in the studio today for a last minute show. It is so last minute that he didn't have time to tell Taylor, so Tony's on his own for this one. Hopefully he won't loose to many of the show's listeners with this one.
In Masonic news he talks about the 300th anniversary of organized Masonry and how the Brethren of the Masonic Round Table are putting on one unique bash. For more info and to purchase tickets please visit www.themasonicroundtable.com
In todays episode Tony interviews his wife's uncle Mr. Mark Shiveley. A man who is from a very strong Masonic Family, but for personal reasons never joined the Fraternity.
They talk about Mr. Shiveley's masonic family history
What his impression of the Fraternity is being a man in his unique situation
What about Freemasonry turned him off form joining.
What organizations he is involved with a what their view of the Fraternity is
The correlations between the organizations he belongs to and the Fraternity and issues that they both face and how they are dealing with them.
And when its all done Mr. Shiveley even leaves the door open to come back on to discuss other topics in the future. So Tony must not have done to bad, or he just feels sorry for him. Were not sure.
We hope you enjoyed this episode and hopefully we can continue this trend of multiple episodes every month.

Well we did it! We've finally started to get our act together on this whole podcasting thing, and for the first time in our short podcasting history we are pleased to bring you a third episode in one month so we hope you enjoy.
In this episode we have the pleasure to interview Right Worshipful Brother Raymond Fosnot, District Deputy Grand Master of the Second Masonic District of the Grand Lodge of Ohio.
We received a very nice email from a Brother From South Pasadena Masonic Lodge #290 F&AM in Los Angeles, California https://www.facebook.com/lodge290/
RWB Ray tells us a little history of himself and how he was born and raised, both literally and Masonicly in the Great State of Pennsylvania. His mother Lodge is West Shore Lodge #681 in Camp Hill, PA which has merged to become Eureka-West Shore Lodge #302 in Mechanicsburg, PA http://eureka302.org
Due to his job he had to transfer to Dayton, Ohio where he affiliated with Huber Heights Lodge #777 in Ohio https://www.facebook.com/Huber-Heights-Masonic-Lodge-777-F-AM-120251134658792/
We ask him about the various differences between ohio and Pennsylvania Masonry such as the Officers, The Lodge Room itself, and the ritual.
They have no yearly inspections by the Grand Lodge but rather schools of instruction where the member must get certified in order to become master of his lodge.
A great interview and one we hope you will enjoy.

Surprise, surprise, surprise, we actually kept our promise and here's a second episode for this month. Even though it is still just the second part of our last show, were still counting it. We hope you enjoy, and if your lucky you may even get a third show this month, if your lucky, and Tony does some work.
In this episode we interview Worshipful Brother Mike Sekach, Master of High Point Lodge #773 F&AM https://www.facebook.com/High-Point-Lodge-773-205499436148911/
We ask him a whole list of questions pertaining to his year so far as Master of the Lodge.
We Talk about his upcoming inspection in the EA Degree.
We discus the fact that High Point doesn't meet in a Masonic Lodge Building, but an Odd Fellows hall, and their relationship.
Due to us recording in High Point lodge on their Stated Meeting night, as usual masonic business comes up and things get cut a little short, but a good first interview for us none the less
Hope you have enjoyed this as well as all previous episodes. Let us know what you think and how we can improve the show. We sure don't know what were doing so any feedback from the audience is always appreciated.

Thanks and have a great week Brethren
Well were back at it for the first time this year, let alone for the last several months. Seems our ambitions that we had back in November didn't go so well. Seems this podcasting thing isn't as easy as we thought it would be, but fear not we strive to do a better job than last year. Time will tell how this resolution plays out.
We are coming to you live from a new location. This time its Taylors home lodge of High Point #773. which meets in an Odd Fellows Lodge, more to come on this later
We had hopes of having an interview for this episode, but in a last minute decision we decided to do something different and take the listeners time into consideration and not bore you with a 2 hour long episode so we split it into 2 shows. Hope you enjoy
In this episode we find out what we have been up to the last couple months as well as how everyone in States has seem to have lost their mind on Facebook.
We have yet another book review, by another Ohio Mason. "The Craft Driven Lodge by Brother Daniel Hrinko. http://www.craftdrivenlodge.com A great read for any Mason that wants to try to put his Lodge on the Path to growth and Success.
Since this show was cut in half we will have at least 2 episodes this year both in the same month so look for the next in a week or so if we can get tony to do some work.
We tried using just one mic this time to make editing easier but sound quality is lacking a little.
We hope you enjoy the shorter episodes. Let us know what you think

Well were back and FINALLY ON ITUNES.
Taylor has a new addition to his family and has finished his year in the east.
Tony is still secretary of his lodge but was fired from his Grand Lodge job. Maybe his lodge should pay more attention and do the same.
Grand Lodge of Oklahoma removes recognition from the Grand lodge of Arkansas because the Grand Lodge of Arkansas doesn't like to play nice with anyone, especially Prince Hall

Grand Lodge of Kentucky approves visitation with Prince Hall Masonry.
The Grand Lodge of Ohio removes alcohol prohibition from their code, to a small degree, or maybe all the way. Were still waiting to the Grand Master to weigh in on where Tony thinks they opened the flood gates. Its coming, were sure.
No ritual is clandestine now in Ohio, what impact will this have.
Lewis candidates rejected in Ohio
Who is Tommasi Crudeli? Tony reads a speech that was given at Grand Lodge from the Grand Lodge of Maryland.

Well were back for another episode. Hopefully soon well be on the major podcast sites.
In this episode we recap what has happened since the last episode.
Ohio Masons are back to Labor with their lodges.
What little time we have to do this just became less due to lodge. such is life.but we love it and will carry on.
Tony visited The Detroit Masonic Temple in Michigan for the Ohio Michigan Degree day. He goes over the differences between the two. Maybe since we always see Ohio work is why it didn't impress. Same old degree we always do.
We talk about the troubles with the Grand Lodge of Arkansas

Welcome to episode 2
This week we realize that somethings wrong because were still not on iTunes. Just something else to add to the list of things were doing wrong.
We find out the Taylor has been appointed an Ambassador for the Ohio Masonic Home and Tony decides to see what he knows.

Which talks about anti masonry and the lies they continue to profess as the truth. As well as issues within the Lodge itself.

Welcome to the first episode of the Front Porch Masonic Podcast. Your hosts, Taylor and Tony, are 2 Freemasons from the Great State of Ohio. They like to sit and observe everything that goes on both inside and outside of the Fraternity, in the hopes that they can find out how Ohio is supposedly doing it wrong and what we can do to fix it. Although we kinda have a feeling everyones just jealous of Ohio. Who knows.
In this introductory episode, Taylor and Tony introduce themselves and what their plans for this show are. Why they wanted to do a podcast and let everyone know that they have no idea what they are doing.
Tony reads a paper that he wrote as an informational flyer last year entitled 'Life without the Freemason.
They discuss the new book by Brother Jason Eddy of High Point Lodge #773 Entitled Casting Light: A Journey Through Craft Masonry and Beyond. https://www.amazon.com/Casting-Light-Journey-Through-Masonry/dp/1534959556/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1471303937&sr=1-1&keywords=casting+light+a+journey+through+craft+masonry+and+beyond
They also ramble on about other various topics both masonic and not.
Hopefully soon they will figure out what they are doing.
They would like to give a big shout out to WB Robert Johnson of the Whence Came You Podcast for all his help in helping these two get this off the ground. Although after listening to this he may want to stay as far away from it as possible.
