Episode 26: Drones, Autism and Social Programs

Bart and Pete manage to go completely off script and discuss a comment from a previous episode regarding people taking advantage of social programs/assistance. But we did manage to talk a little about autism and a followup on the town that wanted to issue permits to shoot drones out of the sky.

There is a brief garble in the audio near the beginning...not much could be done about that...sorry!
