We did record episode 67 on Sunday 5/10, but I’ve been off from work this week and my “staycation” has been so busy I haven’t found the time to upload it (also, being at work gives me access to machines that speed up the process). I’m going to try and get it up BEFORE the new show on Sunday.

I know it sucks to hear PSFR any more than a few days after it’s recorded because much of what we discuss is topical, but you’ll really want to hear this one because we talk all about the new Trek film. So stay tuned!

Episode 66: It’s shrinkage!

billsimmon 05 May 2009 | : episodes

The GOP’s continuing shrinkage problem is a focus on this week’s PSFR as Senator Specter switches parties and moderate Republicans are feeling increasingly like they’re being left out in the cold. David Souter, Steve’s favorite sitting SCOTUS judge, is stepping down, presenting President Obama with his first Supreme Court vacancy. Also, Chuck’s season ended and the season’s penultimate Dollhouse episode generated some interesting discussions. LOST is still awesome and Michelle Bachman is still a loon.

Star Trek opens this week! W00t!
