We start off this week’s Thunderbolt radio program with a lighthearted contemplation of the end of the world!

Then, in celebration, we take our listeners out to a free performance at the Security Theater, featuring a small army of very bored marshals — and set in the truly exotic locale of a Potemkin checkpoint that is located in an airport near you!

We then return to our ‘end of the world’ meme by describing the nature of the foxes that the Rump is putting in charge of our public henhouses.

Then — for the grand exclusive explosive incendiary conclusion to this explosive incendiary episode of this explosive and incendiary radio program, the Thunderbolt exposes the context of Russia in their role as America’s both old and newest bogeyman de jour for the New American Century! (Hey! You can’t just leave a bunch of unemployed soldiers laying around!)

To quote that explosive and incendiary (if somewhat hackneyed) radio program: At the Thunderbolt we are truly non-partisan! We trash EVERYONE!

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
