2017-04-28: Trump vs South Korea, Drunks vs Police Robots, UK Elections

April 28, 2017 – We are in Matsumoto, Japan, to discuss Tump threatening to make South Korea pay for THAAD and threatening to stop the trade agreement with them, crime-fighting robots being knocked over by drunks, and the motivations behind the UK elections! David gets belligerent about software economics, we lose a guest during the break, and we make drunk promises to make the next WND recording a pizza party! We drink Kirin’s Prime Beer, Kirin Lager Beer, and Suntory Old Whiskey. We have no idea what we’re talking about… we’re just here for the booze!

2017-04-21: Great Barrier Death, USS Carl Vinson, Erdogan Powers

USS Carl Vinson

April 21, 2017 – We are in Matsumoto, Japan, to discuss the bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef, the USS Carl Vinson not being where the USA said it would be, and the referendum to expand the presidential powers for Turkey’s Erdoğan. We also discussed police officers being shot in Seattle, and the city of Federal Way being sues for school-zone speed traps. We are enjoying some Japanese beers, mugi shochu, and some donated sake (we can’t read the bottle!). We have no idea what we’re talking about… we’re here for the booze!
