In episode 34, Ham and Chuck look at nothing… that is, police continue to Tase people for… uh… doing nothing illegal, television stations fire weatherwomen for… uh… doing nothing that is against the rules, and Apple finally admits their Maps app does… uh… nothing but put people in life-threatening situations. On this sad weekend, we also reflect on the horrible events on Friday in Newtown, Connecticut and the issue of mental illness.
And please, if you haven’t yet, be sure to go to iTunes and subscribe to the Constant Crisis News & Opinion podcast and leave a comment and/or rating. We really appreciate it. Thanks.
