For this week’s archive show we first navigate some banana slugs, some billionaires and ballot bandits, and then we go with a mostly historic theme as we travel to Ancient Greece and then to some of America’s earliest history as we consider a series of 17th Century events in colonial Massachusetts that set the mold for our nation’s incredibly bloody history.

Facts that they left out of your history books — only here in the Thunderbolt!
This is a production of Dancing Angel Media. Any non-profit is free to rebroadcast. Please just contact me if you do so.
