This week’s archive radio show starts off by thanking the patrons that help me to continue doing what I am doing. Thank you.

Then we describe the ancient practice of hoisting oneself by ones own petard. We reveal another Zionist censorship plot, this time aimed at the Nation Magazine. The Toothless Old Grandpa lists all of America’s ‘friends’ and ‘enemies’ (at least for that week), we trash the TPP which — while technically now defeated — is bound to reappear in another form rather like some zombie nightmare that just refuses to die. We nominate someone for the official Thunderbolt Most Awesome Human on the Planet Award — and then we reveal the mad world that veterans must negotiate trying to get help for their service related problems.

A mad world indeed. Listen at your own risk.
