The 9pm Caltrain

Caltrain at San Jose Diridon Station: click to embiggenThe sharing economy explained in just two minutes. A Florida meth lab is a threat to dolphins. And the failure of hashtag diplomacy.

This episode of The 9pm Edict heads to the United States, at least in some strange warped sense.

There’s a story of a meth lab in a Florida hotel room, and we encounter both an episode of Hannity on Fox News and a “sharing economy guru” on the BBC.

There’s also mention of Glassholes harassing a New York restaurant, a bread line in San Jose. and a plan to reverse the California Aqueduct.

    One thing to note about Hannity: on good days the show only has about 1.2 million viewers. That’s less than 0.5% of the American population, and the viewership skews old.

    Conversational discussions are usually found on the radio. Hannity does a show there too, but plays second fiddle to the better known Rush Limbaugh.
