The Glenn Butler Podcast Hour Spectacular, Episode 45: Despair on the Eve of a Debate

Glenn and Scott attempt to examine the wide array of yahoos contending for the Democratic presidential nomination, but keep getting sidetracked by the garbage fire our political system has become and whether or not capitalism should be thrown onto the pyre. Which candidate serves at the mercy of Twitter teens? Which candidate has a plan for first contact with space aliens? All of the biggest candidates are covered, including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Randy Steve Bullock, John McAfee, and Vermin Supreme.

Note: This episode was recorded before former Representative Joe Sestak announced, for reasons passing understanding, that he too is running for president. We apologize(?) for the omission.

Musical Selections:
“America, Fuck Yeah (Bummer Remix)” from Team America: World Police by Trey Parker and Marc Shaiman
Crank That Mike Gravel
“International Statement” from NFL Primetime by Roger Dexter and Alan Bell
This Land Is Your Land” by Woody Guthrie, performed by Bernard Sanders

Glenn is not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be. The Glenn that you know, they had some second thoughts. Glenn's come back to reclaim some infinitude of silence, the unspeaking of their name. At PTBN they're most often seen walking the web, covering the Star Trek beat, and podcasting about various manifestations of life and popular culture. Find him elsewhere on the Twitter, the Insta and/or the Tumblr. Tamp 'em up solid.
