Aside from the breaking news, it was pretty much a slow news day for the podcast. April fool'd us on Easter Sunday, and luckily the fake news wasn't as bad as it is every other day. But we still talked about, Alt-Right furries, Hotel disasters and the continuing tragedy of the Facebook CEO.
These days, Infowars is probably a lot less of a conspiracy Theory website, a lot more "A state of mind". If you perpetuate a lie for long enough, people are going to continue to believe it even after you admit it was all a ruse. I suppose it also doesn't help the American public when the leader of their country also perpetrates the nonsense.
At least we will always have pizza.

Due to the recent handful of firings at Vancouver Sun/The Province, we get into a little debate before the show starts, about what a company like Postmedia should probably do to "save money".
