The Thunderbolt is still not being broadcast over the air. (Hitches in plans and ‘processes’ that I had previously been unaware of — but hopefully we’ll be on KAOS after their fund drive next month.)

Since producing these shows is a lot of work, I am only recording one new show a month now instead of two and I have thus put together another show from the archives for you.

(One advantage to archive shows is that no dogs ever make it into the show a second time, though…)

This week’s show starts off with some central themes that I have been hitting on for years now.

Then, we point out how during the last presidential election, one of the choices was completely intolerable — whilst the other was utterly unacceptable.

Next, we reveal the secrets of the cosmos with our semi-regular ‘Wisdom of the Thunderbolt’ series, the Toothless Old Grandpa goes postal, we provide a basic course on how to influence public policy — and for the feature piece this week we describe an economic practice that is usually called ‘quantitative easing’ but that here in the Thunderbolt we refer to as what it actually is, i.e. ‘quantitative screwing’.

Yes — it’s quantitative outrage mixed with a dash of pique this week — so listen at your own risk!
This is a production of Dancing Angel Media. There is also a written version of The Thunderbolt at
