We start off this week’s radio show with the scariest thing of all about our new president. Then we describe how Mexicans are employing ladders to success, we mourn the imminent demise of the male penis, we call for a general strike, and we reveal the Irony of the Week before considering how evil and ignorance are two very different things.

Then, for the feature Thunderbolt this week, we reveal the strategy behind killing messengers in order to kill the message.

High wattage Thunderbolts this week! Beware!
