WHOOPS! The last half of show 130 didn’t get released to our regular audience on time. The youtube was present and the Patreon backers had access but the scheduled events didn’t go. Terribly sorry about that, but they should be in your feeds now. Mea Culpa.
  1. So the Cubs won. Let’s hope that Back to the Future only go that part right.

  2. It is also the 28th Anniversary of They Live, which is also frightening in its parallels.

  7. The panel predictions, In the Hillary pool, David +30 and Stephen +20, In the Trump pool Amber narrowly, Andy finds it too close to call within 15 electors either way. All panelists are pulling for Hillary.
