This week’s radio show features yet more normalized insanity! (It’s normal now!) Next — realizing that every silver lining is always attached to a dark cloud — we point out some of the potential downsides to a very awesome upside. Then we describe how the Machine neuters opposition movements — and for the feature this week, we tremble at the sound of the drums of war.

High-voltage perfidy perennially on parade. This must be the Thunderbolt.
This is a production of Dancing Angel Media. You are free to rebroadcast as long as you are a non-profit — just please let us know if you do so.
