It’s the 5th Friday — meaning that it’s not only the last Thunderbolt of 2016 but it is also time for The Thunderbolt’s Greatest Strikes! I pull some of my very favourite shows out of the Thunderbolt archive and play them again!

We start off by advocating for more pugilistic popes. Then, your Thunderbolt host makes a shocking personal revelation before describing the police tactic of ‘entrapment’ — which is directly relevant to the feature piece this week, the Thunderbolt’s Handy Household Tips for Proper Stormtrooper Etiquette!

High wattage Thunderbolts ahead! 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
