Podcast: History and Mystery

This week, on a very sleepy Tower of Technobabble, we are taught lessons by a Twittering Kansas teen (Hey, Governor Brownback! You’re a wiener!), dare to delve into money an politics, wonder if NASA just sneezed all over Mars, tell the sad tale of a man who lost a game of angry, angry hippos, look what the texas drought brought in, and ponder the speeches never given and plans never used that would have changed the course of history.
