This week’s show starts off by reporting on the current situation in the world this week.

(It is dire.) (Surprise, surprise.)

We then make an emotional appeal, we reveal the ideology of the lemming, we compare heroin to alcohol, we advocate rebranding ‘climate change’ into ‘climate catastrophe’ and we advocate rebranding ‘regulations’ into ‘protections’ (amongst other things).

Next, we reveal a resource for researching the actual people who actually run the people who are pretending that they are actually running our world.

Then, finally, for the feature piece this week we ponder the phenomenon of Indian snake charmers — and upon what kind of activist lessons might be gleaned from them.

At the Thunderbolt — we’re likely to stir fry your brain in gunpowder and then light a fuse.

Listen at your own risk…
This is a production of Dancing Angel Media. There is also a written version of The Thunderbolt at
