Our Craniumelody artist this episode is Winterlight.

Verdictless

VerdictlessBlendover Episode Twenty Eight:

We know. We’re tired of the overcoverage of the Zimmerman thing too. So for this week’s Blendover, we decided to shake it up a bit: We briefly touch on NSA drama, but follow up our Mandela Watch, while Microsoft reorganizes in light of criticisms. As promised we follow-up on the Lac-Mégantic Derailment and Explosion in Canada. Blendover is happily “verdictless” this week, and we hope you come along for the ride.

PyroCanadiaBlendover Episode Twenty Seven:

While the mainstream media continues their Snowden sensationalism, Blendover instead turns to Canada, where there are major suspicions and questions over two major events there: the arrest of a couple accused of a terror plot in Victoria, and the derailment and explosion of an oil tanker train in Quebec. Both incidents are not getting the investigative coverage they should be getting, so we look into them in depth…
