Drinking to the end of american democracy the vikings tread across the grim waters of the 9/11 conspiracies. We get things rolling by discussing how the news stumbled into the collective and individual laps of the vikings and the challenges it posed to a group of dingbats from a generation who found patriotism anethema.
We drop some science about how governments and ruling bodies over the years have used military actions to get the people behind their agendas. Look up the USS Maine and the Reich Stag smart ass.
We then move into a discussion and dissection of the very important video Loose Change. if you watch any video on the questions with the dominant 9/11 story, please make it this one. Even if you’ve seen other videos, even if you’re absolutely certain you have ALL the answers about what went down on that dark day, please do yourself a favor and watch this video right away.
When those planes incinerated into ash against the two towers of western civilization the world began it’s rusty saunter towards a truly new day.

Devendra Banhart closes the show with “Crippled Crow”.
