Meanwhile, Vic is back in Detroit, hanging out with his high school friends who also build robots, kick ass at laser tag, and go to the same pizza place every Friday night!

Finally, Mike sits down with Ed Cunard from the karaoke podcast The Greatest Songs Ever Sung (Poorly)!  In the first part of the interview, the two discuss the mechanics of a podcast all about karaoke, the pros and cons of virtual karaoke, Ed’s karaoke pet peeves and advice, and how they got Frank Turner to guest on their show!

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.

You can help by donating to local abortion funds. To find out where to donate for each state, visit
