Let's set the scene: it's the <a href="http://thepapermacheteshow.com/2011/07/07/radio-magazine-7211-new-format-podcast/">Fourth of July</a>, and Ali and Christopher just don't want to be here right now. But Robbie Fulks does; he talks about cowboy Jack Clement, and with his wife Donna, sings songs about their favorite cowboys. Neo-Futurist Bilal Dardai bemoans Samuel Morse and the creation of the telegraph. Stephanie Shaw tears into Phyllis Schlafly, and Dastardly wraps things up with some more music.
