This week’s archive radio show suggests you abandon all hope. (But not really.) (Well, actually…)

We describe a distinct lack of stones at the United Nations, we revive the Irony of the Week feature, we contemplate the plot of a novel wherein the stingers get stung, we describe a newly discovered anti-drone technology (from the 19th Century BC) we reveal that the CIA is deeply concerned about your skin texture, we reveal that our machines are about to take over our world, we describe some of the the travails of the modern activist — and for the feature piece we reveal that we would rather die on our feet than live on our knees.

The Thunderbolt is likely to screw with your foundational paradigms. Listen with caution.
This is a production of Dancing Angel Media. There is also a written version of The Thunderbolt at
