The suspenseful wait is over, so no more anxiety-ridden uncertainty! ASP Stuff Radio emerge from their summer slumber and crank out an informative episode that will cure your “historical amnesia” by recalling the United States government’s meddling shenanigans of Russia’s 1996 election when Boris Yeltsin was running against the favored Communist leader Gennady Zyuganov, who was financially supported by Vladimir Putin; the same guy who is being accused of meddling with the 2016 U.S. presidential election. There’s even an amusing movie about this meddling political affair called Spinning Boris as well as a detailed cover story in the July 15, 1996 edition of Time magazine. Its a curious case to ponder: was Putin seeking revenge against Hillary Clinton due to her husband’s interference with the 1996 Russian election? All that stuff aside, ASP discuss another arguably ‘hot’ and ‘heavy’ topic: global warming/climate change and whether this phenomenon is the result of human’s meddling with the Earth over the course of human history.
Finally, Alberotle, Steveocrates and Paulato indulge in a game of Last Letter even though their attempt is piteous albeit somewhat entertaining. Enjoy listening to episode #46!
