A block of the last five weeks of campaign coverage from "Donald Drumpf Theatre, culiminating with this episode:
Vol. 196 Super Spreader. Our hero has a big S on his chest.

Thanks this week for the songs from Randy Rainbow and Patti LuPone "If Donald Got Fired"), Nirvana ("Smells Like Teen Spirit"), Superman ("TV Opening"), XTC ("That's Really Super, Supergirl"), and Golden Earring ("Twilight Zone"). Clips and excerpts from Rod Serling; Rudy Giuliani; Cartman; Richard Nixon; Colin Jost and Michael Che from "Saturday Night Live;" Sarah Connor and The Terminator from "The Terminator 2;" J.L. Cauvin; Maria Bartiromo; Stephen Colbert; Seth Meyers; John Oliver; and Jimmy Kimmel. An original radio theatre show each week, with most sounds culled from the previous week, about a fictional, theatrical presidency. Contradictions tell the story, with songs, skits, and clips from political news shows and late-night comedy routines. The definition of "radio theatre" is stretched here, with an updated Dickie Goodman and/or Richard Foreman-meets-mashup style sometimes, and a more straightforward take other weeks. Currently airing on 30 or 40 stations around the world, the network has ordered another five months of episodes. Anyone who would like to work on a production, or have their work air in this timeslot, should contact info@wgxc.org.
