PI DAY at the CircusBlendover Episode 160:

As we cross the boundary of Episode 160 on Pi Day 2015, we look into the ongoing issues surrounding wild animals in traveling circuses. Tory backbencher politicians this week blocked legislation that would have banned wild animals in circuses. We discuss the issue in depth. And our Craniumelody artist this week is Blockhead.

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.
