–Fresh off Oktoberfest at the Nelson family abode, Strange Frequencies Radio is back. We’re still full from the beers and brats, but dammit we’re ready to go!
–Let’s start off light. Stranger Things has been renewed for season 4 (no shock there) and we’re not in Hawkins anymore. Plus, the Duffer Brothers have signed a fat deal to continue producing content for Netflix. What wonders might we have in store?
–Let’s talk fake hate/bias crimes again. We mention two, one involving a 6th grade black girl who lied about three white boys cutting off her dreadlocks, and another here local to us about a black mother blaming a “white bitch” for an attempted kidnapping.
–Bobby, an unabashed Star Wars nut, is very upset after seeing Mark Hamill took a big dump on Ivanka Trump after she shared an image of her young child in a stormtrooper costume. Jason bemoans the divisiveness, where not even images of kids are safe from rage due to political squabbles.
–Bernie Sanders suffers a heart attack on the campaign trail, and we discuss whether or not he should drop out of the race.
–The trial of Amber Guyger for the killing of Botham Jean is over, with the former Dallas police officer being sentenced to 10 years, with the possibility for parole in 5. But Jason was moved by the act of true humanity and forgiveness on display from the Jean family, and wishes the more sanctimonious among us could take a lesson from it.
–Bobby showed Jason the Sandy Hook Promise “back to school” commercial that debuted a couple weeks back, and we discuss whether ads like this, as well as the “active shooter drills” going on in American schools do far more harm than good.
–We end the show with a report and video of a UFO sighting in North Carolina, and break down the likeliest explanations. Is it aliens? Or flares?
