This week’s archive show is from the period when the Toothless Old Grandpa first showed up and we were figuring out his role in the show. We start this week’s show by describing an overseas job opportunity. We describe some successes and some failures in politics recently and then we reveal that the dastardly program manager of KOWA has been censoring political information — before revealing that I am the program manager of KOWA! (No conflict of interest here! Just move along now…) Then the Toothless Old Grandpa rocks it with his very first Thunderbolt as he nails gentrifiers to the wall. We suggest seeking sanctuary sometime soon somewhere because the Banksters are coming, we describe the Great American Bubble Machine, the privatization of Sesame Street, and for the finale we talk about crisis at Pacifica — which is where we get about 80% of the programming that we air on KOWA!

Lots of stuff this week. Listen at your own risk.
