Straight up, this show is about being at the mercy of machines, nature and man. And to illustrate hardships we had Polly Prairie as a guest to tells us what it's like to live underground, 6 feet that is... so that we could thanks that we ain't. Also you'll hear our friendly towny 'Yocal Ono' hootin' and given his two cents in the background.
