Hey!

We talk to Simon in the UK about the bloody events of the past week.  Yes; all of them.  And in the hour since we recorded this we've already been overtaken by evens so be kind, dammit.

But first another reading from Dan's juvenilia.  And when the going gets tough, the tough write their staff's own resignation letters; it's human particle fibre board Paul Foster Bell.

Hey!

First a short word on the incredibly sad events in Orlando, and also the death of Jo Cox.

Then; Dan got electrocuted.  Australian politics is full bananas. Paid Parental Leave is smited, Bennet's latest shittalk goes south, and the 90 Day Fire At Will Bill scientifically sucks butt.

But the main event is Dan found his novel, written at age ~21.  A couple of choice readings, plus a ?contest where you get to try and come up with the name. Let us know.

Hi!  Check this new format shit out.

Hillary Clinton is the first ever woman to nab the presidential candidacy of a major political party. This is a milestone and worth celebrating. It is also bad.  It is also good, anyway.  But still bad...

For Brits who are sad they can't vote Trump, there's always Brexit!  Postal voting is underway and the cretins appear to have a lead.

Staying with the Woke theme: meth.  Does your house smoke it?  Who to blame, who to pay?  Is there anything behind the growing demand for P testing of homes - not for manufacture, just for use - aside from panic?

Also; are you bad enough dude to kill the gorilla? EDM and YA Fiction.  Auckland's housing crisis and the help refuseniks - how government's shittalking came home to roost. Pun intended.
