The Marvelous Mystery of Will Russell; Matt Goldberg’s Compassionate Message


We’re going with some fun and some seriousness on this episode of the Rusty Satellite Show, home of the ‘Ville’s most interesting people.

First up is Will Russell, who brings us a scoop – he’s organizing a new event called “Caddyshack Fest” for 2019, but for now he’s focused on opening the Marvelous Mystery in a storefront on Barrett next to what is now Martin’s BBQ. And it’s an amazing space that only he can do justice describing. Will also talks about his mental health journey of the last three years and the good place he’s in right now.

On a more serious note, the murders of two African-Americans in a local Kroger, and then a catastrophic tragedy at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, have many of us wondering what is causing the hate and violence. We don’t know, but Matt Goldberg, director of community relations for the Jewish Federation of Louisville, talks about how he and his followers are coping.

Which brings us to the news — and the sale of Nazi Christmas ornaments has some people properly perplexed, and doing something about it. I’ve got some advice on voting in next week’s mid-terms, including where to find your ballot. And it’s Breeders’ Cup weekend, the second-biggest event (behind the Derby) our little town will see in a year.

So settle in and give the Rusty Satellite Show a listen. It’s sponsored by Passport Health Plan, the Eye Care Institute and Heuser Health.
