This week’s archive radio show (culled from right in the middle of the last election) features the latest product from the venture capital arm of the CIA! (You can be a multi-tasker by softening your skin even whilst simultaneously providing your DNA to the CIA!) (Don’t worry though! You won’t even know about it!)

Next, we describe the real possibility that our machines are about to pass us right on by and take over the world — partly because activists these days resemble wounded bassoons that are being stalked by evil clarinets.

After that we encourage listeners to ‘move on’ from both the established political parties (and thus quit enabling their abusers) we reveal how the 0.1% regularly co-opts opposition movements and turns them to their own evil ends (again, usually the people involved don’t even know this) and then — for the feature piece this week — we reveal the True Dragon that I conjectured was going to arise — and that indeed did arise — from Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

(I like playing some of these old pieces because they always prove how prophetic I was…)

Ogres, trolls, dragons — they are all legitimate targets for being Thunderbolted!
