Guests, Roseanne Barr & Ed Primeau

In this 2 guest episode of The People Speak we hear first from audio expert analyst Ed Primeau who comments on the 911 calls made during the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman shooting incident.  Ed Primeau is an audio engineer who helps courts and law enforcement agencies understand the science and technology of voice identification. We all have distinctive characteristics to our voice and words, as well as how we pronounce those words. Each of us has a unique nasal cavity, larynx, teeth, tongue, and mouth. These distinct characteristics all come together and create a unique sounding voice that can be examined and analyzed using computer software and auditory perception to determine if voices in question are from the same person.

Our 2nd guest is Roseanne Barr - 2012 Presidential Candidate for the Green Party.  Roseanne Barr announced her candidacy for President of the United States on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, declaring that she would not run as a Democrat or a Republican “because they both suck and they’re both a bunch of criminals.” She has since decided to seek the nomination of the Green Party of the United States.

Coincidentally, Roseanne had very outspoken ideas about the Trayvon Martin case and actually called in on the first part of the show to comment on the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case.  Truly a special show with participation from a nationwide audience.

Guest Biography

BIO BELOW FROM: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roseanne_Barr

Roseanne Cherrie Barr (born November 3, 1952) is an American actress, comedienne, writer, television producer, director and 2012 presidential nominee of the California-based Peace and Freedom Party. Barr began her career in stand-up comedy at clubs before gaining fame for her role in the sitcom Roseanne. The show was a hit and lasted nine seasons, from 1988 to 1997. She won both an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress for her work on the show. Barr had crafted a "fierce working-class domestic goddess" persona in the eight years preceding her sitcom and wanted to do a realistic show about a strong mother who was not a victim of patriarchal consumerism.[1]

The granddaughter of immigrants from Europe and Russia, Barr was the oldest of four children in a working-class Jewish Salt Lake City family; she was also active in the LDS Church. In 1974 she married Bill Pentland, with whom she had three children, before divorcing in 1990 and marrying comedian Tom Arnold for four years. Controversy arose when she sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" off-key at a 1990 nationally aired baseball game, followed by grabbing her crotch and spitting.

After her sitcom ended, she launched her own talk show, The Roseanne Show, which aired from 1998 to 2000. In 2005, she returned to stand-up comedy with a world tour. In 2011, she starred in an unscripted TV show, Roseanne's Nuts, that lasted from July to September of that year, about her life on a Hawaiian farm.

In early 2012, Barr announced her candidacy for the Presidential nomination of the Green Party.[2] Barr lost the nomination to Jill Stein.[3] She then sought the presidential nomination of the Peace and Freedom Party, which she won on August 4, 2012.[4] Barr received almost 50,000 votes in the general election, placing sixth overall.[5]
