What You’re Seeing Isn’t What’s Happening

We’re going back to our roots with this bizarro sound collage about everyone’s favorite “president,” Donald Trump, the most loathsome man alive. All spoken word used in this episode comes directly from propaganda, either straight from the horse’s mouth or from old 1950s-1960s “Red Scare” recordings. All music created for this episode by Dan Butler, Evan Reser, Mitch Jordan, and Adam Norris.

All music in this episode by Dan Butler. Lucky Millinder’s “The Grape Vine” used for additional commentary.
