    Red Hot Take: Our Simmering Present and Our Boiling Future

    Red Hot Take: Our Simmering Present and Our Boiling Future

    Breht was awoken early this morning by a sickening feeling of anxious dread and existential despair brought on by his ever-deepening realization of the full implications of climate chaos... Instead of curling up in the fetal position and vomiting out his anxiety on his tiny bathroom floor, he went over to Producer Dave's house to record this episode. So... enjoy, I guess? Idk.

    Outro Music: "How the World Works" by Bo Burnham
