Little Martin Widlake relegated to the end of the line despite 26 years in IT.
Broadcast of May 4, 2015 - Deluded Short men
The webmaster discusses two short men, little Martin Widlake and the buffoon named Kevin Hart. Martin Widlake has a blog and is depicted below. The short man "lean in" is also discussed whereby short men stand on the outside of a photo and "lean in", in an attempt to convey the image that they are taller than they actually are, that their short height is just an "illusion" because they're "leaning in". When short men are in photos between two or more Tallers they have a tendency to be the only ones NOT smiling as little Martin "Luther" Widlake below demonstrates.
Little Martin Widlake
We've also included several photos of Kevin Hart, and he's ALWAYS "leaning in".
Broadcast of December 24, 2014 - Zone of Space Violations
The webmaster discusses the arbitrary indignities that short people suffer, often willingly. The photo below is a good example of this. This photo is discussed in depth in the broadcast.
This photo is of a young woman with 3 "friends". The two guys to either side of her insisted on her being in the middle depicted the way she is. She willingly acceded to their demands. The short woman in the photo claims to choose friends "based on personality rather than height".

Broadcast of March 2, 2015 - Zone of Space Violations IV
- Joe finishes up with zone of space violations and then explains one of the most important aspects of heightism.
Broadcast of February 14, 2015 - Zone of Space Violations III
In this broadcast Joe discusses more 'Tall people violating short people's zone of space' videos and clearly demonstrates how height - Taller Height - is the '800 pound gorilla in the room' that enables the people who make these videos to do what they're doing. Their Tall height provides them with the confidence they need to violate other peoples' personal zone of space without fear of reprisal; people who are almost always shorter or smaller than they are. Their confidence is developed through the respect and admiration they've received from a lifetime of reinforcement from society, from a physical advantage that they did not earn. If the people who make these videos make a point of violating ONLY shorter or smaller people's zone of space, then it pretty well proves exactly WHO these arbitrary indignities happen to in the first place in every day situations. This is a MUST listen-to broadcast. See Videos below -
Broadcast of December 22, 2014
Joe talks about the "casualties" of trying to fight heightism, that is, the people who came and went. Joe talks about 'positive attitude gurus', feminized short guys, then covers the Oxford study that took 60 disturbed women and used it as a labeling device against short men. He also covers the two worst people of all-time with respect to short men, and short men like comedian Dai Henwood who willingly sell-out short men to further their own finances. Brent Jowers adds his amazing insights to all of this. This is a 3-part broadcast, and one of SFTS's longest broadcasts. that you don't want to miss!
Joe interviews Leslie Rott Ph.D. The first woman interviewed on the issue of heightism, Leslie Rott, the author of “You’re so Short!”: the Stigma (and Disability) of Being a Short Woman". This is a barn-burner of a broadcast where 3 intellectuals get together for the first time. Brent Jowers included! This is a MUST listen to!!!
Broadcast of April 14, 2016 - Injustice in Georgia
Joe interviews Jose Sanders, a man arrested at a convenience store in 2012 in Georgia attempting to buy beer while being short. It seems that a rookie stud, in an attempt to get himself a bust, arrested Jose "because I can". Jose displayed his ID when asked by the convenience store clerk, yet the clerk and the manager contacted the Police claiming that an "underage" youth was attempting to buy beer. After the police arrived and checked Jose's ID out and found it to be legitimate, the rookie stud decided to arrest Jose on what appears to be a fabricated charge of "Disorderly Conduct". Jose was forced to spend 3 days in the county jail, before a judge dismissed the case. Jose was not represented by legal counsel at the hearing.
Broadcast of January 21, 2015 - Zone of Space Violations II
This broadcast is a continuation of the last broadcast of December 24, 2014. The webmaster continues his discussion of zone of space violations and demonstrates how people are callously indifferent to the arbitrary indignities directed at short people (An opportunist named 'Coach Corey Wayne being one example, by betraying his short friend and literally blaming him for his own murder after standing up to a bully in a club). Joe discusses two videos and how in both these videos the person doing the violating of other people's zones of space is a tall person. He discusses the psychodynamics of these indignities and demonstrates that these violations are based on very simple principles.
An anonymous rock star comes forward to discuss heightism. Such is the stigma surrounding the discussion of heightism.
Broadcast of December 29, 2016 - Injustice in Pittsburgh
Joe interviews a man named "Jim" who discusses some of the situations that have confronted him, including one misidentification by police which resulted in him being falsely arrested and imprisoned. Please view Jim's Youtube channel - here.
In this broadcast Joe and Brent hammer away at the core of people that set up double-standards for short people and short men in particular. A rabble-rousing broadcast that hits hard at all the hypocrisy of those who refuse to recognize the existence of the heightism phenomenon.
