From the opening

Now, before our guest and our main topic for today, a bit of news.

Item one: some reflections on Entertainment news. Has anyone been looking at CSI Cyber? Or, as I like to call it, CSI Fascist? Seriously, why does every episode have message fiction with the message “banks are evil, cops are racist and big brother is your own defense?” Now, usually, if you tell a good story, I can swallow almost anything. Heck, I’m one of the few people who seems to like Star Trek IV: Save the Whales – because it was a fun little story.

Item 2: Real news: Europe seems to be blowing up.

Item 3: Social Media news, so you can decide if it’s real or not. Milo Yiannopoulos is deverified on Twitter.

Tom Knighton covers last year’s Hugos – especially with the votes.

How Sad Puppies 4 is different from SP3?

How is this years SP going in terms of feedback, votes etc. What are they doing for support and such?
