And in the great ranting tradition of zines, Elimination of the Snakes is a Madison podcast that brims with the social and political commentary of two fifty-somethings named Dan and John. Episode #160, which aired June 29, included a reflection on gang riots that broke out in Los Angeles after the L.A. Lakers won the NBA championship. "It's nice to be young and stupid and living in L.A. with no future," said Dan in his commentary.

"We're getting more gang activity here in Madison," he added. "What the hell is the point, to stay in it until you shoot someone?"
