    So this should be interesting... Andrew, from All Brakes No Gas, moved to Channel 5, has now had his Jan 6th coverage picked up by HBO.

    It'll be interesting to see how this works out for him. Dude is a fantastic interviewer... knows exactly how to just be there, listen, and let the other person tell their own story.

    I hope good things for him, and can't wait to see the doc.

    My weekend started with a text at about 5:30 from an employee informing me he’s resigning. Just as we’re about to start a field assignment with one of our biggest clients. Time to scramble to replace him.

    Honestly he’s been less than enthusiastic about things like working, showing up on time or accepting field assignments, so I started lining up backups in case he flaked.

    I love his coverage of.... everything. He does current political events and weird culture phenomenon and just lets the people there speak without interruption. So much news coverage is highly editorialized, edited for sound bites, or edited to flow with their story.

    Good for this guy. He's a real one.

    It's pretty interesting how many internet shit-posting types ended up with really good Jan 6 coverage because they went down there with the assumption it was going to be a clownshow where they could farm content. The Good Liars, Jordan Klepper, Shoe0nHead, Andrew Callaghan, etc were all physically present. There are good clips where each of them realizes the day had gone from "what quirky idiots" to "oh shit, things are popping off."

    Have any of you ever seen anything like this? At first I thought it was a radio, but the house was built in 1917, so that kind of rules that out. Any ideas?

    God forbid you devote more than 4 pixels to showing the device. My guess is a secretary desk with a radio that isn't original to the house.

    Yeah, that was probably a radio at the bottom. Big-ass dial window, clicker-style “programmable” switches right under it, then volume and tuning knobs. Any picture of the back?
    Also, any evidence of speaker mounting/grilles?

    My dad used to collect antique radios. A lot of our furniture was old consoles anywhere from the 30’s to the 70’s.

    how many rooms? If it was a bed and breakfast or used to be a hotel of some kind, my guess is those were mail slots and that was an intercom of some kind to page the rooms

    The intercom thing did cross my mind, but it's a smallish bungalow style house and I think in 1917 speaking tubes were still used for intercoms. I'm pretty much thinking along with Aetius, that it's a radio retro'd into the house at a later time.

    The house went off my radar though when I checked street view and it appears there's blocks of low income housing across the street from it. Pass.

    This is the backside of where it's at. No speaker to be seen.
