The Paper Machete Radio Magazine: America at War

America has been at war in Afghanistan for 10 years, and we're celebrating! The show starts off with Alisa 'Plucky' Rosenthal singing 'Corns For My Country.' Katie Watson becomes avant-garde Cassidy Nabisco, who feels theater can save the world from war. Andrea Lenaburg is our expert expat from North Dakota, and she gets us deep into the state's natural resources. And Josh Zagoren, aka Chad the Bird, talks about the Jewish high holidays. As usual, if you can hear us, this magazine is LIVE. Download it here, or listen below.

On Saturday at the Horseshoe, we'll say goodbye to Andy Rooney, Leonard Nimoy says goodbye to the Star Trek convention, and we say hello to a new Sesame Street character. It'll all be covered by Kate Duffy of Deep Schwa; Neo-Futurist Chloe Johnston; Jessica Joy of Second City e.t.c; Matt Klinger as Terrence McCarthy; Tony Mendoza of the Annoyance; Mo Welch of The Mo Show; and the return of Josh Zagoren as Chad the Bird.
