We start off this week’s radio show by pointing out that amongst his other ‘job experience’ is the fact that our president has spent the last twenty years as a character in Doonesbury!

Then, we reveal why you really should be freaking out right now. and we bring your attention to some of the lemonade that can be squeezed from the Rump’s lemons.

Next — if you can get the picture of ‘squeezing the Rump’s lemons’ out of your head — we point out how all of our short-term activism should be seen through the lens of the ‘long game’

Then, finally, we contemplate whether or not we’re even going to survive this adventure at all.

Unvarnished and raw news that you can actually use! Only on the Thunderbolt! Listen at your own risk!
This is a production of Dancing Angel Media in cooperation with KOWA LP FM in Olympia, WA, broadcasting at 106.5 fm and streaming at There is also a written version of The Thunderbolt at
