Something new! Stang describes and reads from Rev. Lee Cipher's new SubGenius book: his PHD dissertation "Rhetorical Ripples: The Church of the SubGenius, Kenneth Burke, and Comic Symbolic Tinkering." It's wild! A serious academic look at the Church! Full of big words, but also lots of keen illustrations, with much rare stuff from Stang's online SubG History course at Maybe Logic Academy. After Lonecow Dave calls in, the conversation alters somewhat in nature, as has been known to happen, and becomes a Theological Hotline. Some of it is in reprehensible taste. The show ends with a pretty spectacular new, er, "song" by Rev. Bern Brijis. You would never know from listening to this that Rev. Stang had to repair three different malfunctioning station machines just before this show started.
