#23 - *SPECIAL* COP21 Paris

Welcome to Paris for the United Nations 21st Conference of Parties on Climate Change or COP21.

Word on the Street - Paris Addition

Andi and I made it to Paris on December 12th to join with people from all across the globe to show international demand for accountability to the nearly 200 countries that signed the climate deal keeping our planet below 1.5 degrees Celsius.  This moment is monumental, but it’s also a long way from being a reality.  It will still require ratification on April 22nd, 2016 in New York, and more than ever, that everyday people continue to talk about climate change and the desire for a clean, stable planet.

#22 - Turkey Days & Terror Ways

Happy Thanksgiving to our fellow villains. 


Our hearts go out to all those affected by the attacks in Paris, Beirut, Turkey, and Mali.  What has occurred is awful.  But, you wouldn’t put a fire out with gasoline.  You wouldn’t teach your child that hitting is wrong by using a swift backhand.  Today, a light, but fruitful discussion about the value of appropriate response in the face of tragedy.  Ironically, we release this episode on Thanksgiving, the same day we Americans celebrate our own status as refugees.







Today’s show was written by Greg Haddock and Graham Rue, and produced by Greg Haddock with help from Andrea Schmidt.

#20 - Labor Day & Immigration

Why is Donald Trump good for the election in 2016?  Aaand of course why he isn’t.  Also, how can getting too excited about Bernie Sanders be a bad thing?  Immigrants take over, and the unions do what unions do.

Donald Trump announces his presidency, and then we make fun of him.  Who is "we", you ask?  I present my new co-host Graham Rue @instagraham with a welcome gift as he describes his distaste for U.S. politics and his forbidden love with common sense as he prophesies the 2016 presidential election of Independent VT Senator Bernie Sanders.  Music provided by the Free Music Archive ( under Creative Commons.  Today's music by Evil Bear Boris and Shopping.

#16 - The Internet, Man

After MILLIONS OF COMMENTS from people like you, chairman Tom Wheeler of the FCC announces that internet providers will NOT be able to provide "fast lanes" to premium customers at the cost of "slow lanes" to everyone else.  As we enjoy this major MV victory, it's time to reflect on the beauty of the interwebs.

#15 - Represent.Us Interview with Mansur Gidfar

Mansur Gidfar of Represent.Us tells us all about how money is corrupting our political process in the good ole USofA and what we can do about it.  He comes from a group with some serious street cred, a plan, and a running start.  You don't want to miss this, unless of course you hate democracy and freedom in equal measure.

Reflections: A Tribute to George Douthit III

From Michael Brown and Eric Garner to Boko Haram and Charlie Hebdo - a lot has happened in the last month.  But what makes it really ugly is the way people have chosen sides in some of these events.
