The entire “Guerrilla Radio Theater” program is one hour and includes many other pieces. We have limited our selections for this podcast to twenty minutes and, therefore, much of the original program is not included.

“SWATting the Books” by Ron N. Butler – “Sovereign Immunity and Your local public library….”
“NOSINET” by Daniel Taylor – “What your banker knows about you……”
“Inhuman Rights” by Ron N. Butler – “Dodos is good eatin……”
“The Shape of Things to Come” by Daniel Taylor – “Technology and the single girl….”
