Donald Trump before he was President of the United States (Carlos Barria/Reuters)

The 9pm Edict cover art version 2, 150 pixelsThis is the first episode of this podcast for nearly three months, and what I foretold has come to pass.

“‘President Trump’, get used to saying it,” I first warned you on 5 November 2015, a full year before the US elections.

Told you so.

It’s not really a matter of careful what you wish for, because I wasn’t wishing for this. I just foresaw this new era in human history. I can indeed see through time, and you people really do need to start recognising this simple fact.

This episode was recorded in front of a live audience at The Crafty Squire in Melbourne on Saturday 29 October 2016.

There’s talk of puppies, dinosaurs, nudibranchs, Steve Herbert MP, the late Mick Young MP, security theatre, euthanasia, teledildonincs, Malcolm Turnbull, penises, and politicians in general. Amongst many other things.
