This week’s archive radio show starts off listing some successes and some failures We next document some corruption in high places (surprise, surprise) before the Toothless Old Grandpa makes his first ever appearance on the Thunderbolt and nails both the issues of gentrification and abortion. Next we reveal some revolving doors that a recently ex-attorney general is walking through. Then we describe a fast one that Julian Assange and Edward Snowden pulled on the American security services before we reach the feature piece this week, wherein we describe a highly questionable law enforcement practice called ‘entrapment’.

The Thunderbolt lights up dark places. Listen at your own risk.

This is a production of Dancing Angel Media. There is also a written version of The Thunderbolt at
