It’s Cinematic!  Bruce on the Rocks

Oh no! Our namesake is missing this week on Scotts on the Rocks Politica, but have no fear! Host Bruce Chester and Producer Cameron McLeod can manage and fill the void!

The topic presented by our host this week revolves around Hollywood, and the idea of movies being the vessel for specific political messages and agendas, instead of creating a story for the sake of the story and art platform that it is. Using the current climate of the movie making giant, as well as the climate of the early and mid 20th century, they talk about how a staple of American culture such as cinema paints the broad picture of what its people are feeling.

Along side this topic, Bruce and Cam talk about the importance of being well versed in subjects before making an opinion on said subjects, as well as ponder what the effects of “being woke” has.

Scotts on the Rocks Politica is a political-centric broadcast that aims to lead through example.

Scott M. Graves is your host joined by a wide variety of guests from throughout the political spectrum and from a wide variety of disciplines.

Our intent is to provide rational and detailed discussion for listeners.  We’re proving we have more in common and that we’re better together than torn asunder.

Our weekly podcast features careful examinations  blendded with current events reporting from a national and local perspective.

If you appreciate local journalism with a global reach, if you want to cut through the BS and get right to the heart of the matter where it counts for your family our show was made for you.


With that in mind we’re launching an initiative we’re calling M The Media Project. This is a service of SMGraves Associates and over the months and years ahead we’re hoping to experiment with a variety of mediums, financial models and service delivery methods to deliver important news to a regional audience. 

It is our hope that we will create successful media services companies, incubated right here in central Massachusetts that have the potential of becoming replicable. 

The stakes for our society are too high for us not to take this endeavor on.  There are too many capable journalists across the country willing to take part in new and successful business enterprise dedicated to the smart delivery of local political, social and cultural stories.  The stories that tell us who we are and who we desire to be.
