Episode 162 – 16th November 2012

New Twitter prosecution rules, the National Health Action Party launch, a report on freedom of expression from Azerbaijan – it’s an eclectic show! We also speak to a man crowdfunding some scientific research, find out about fusion reactors, hear how humanists are excluded from Remembrance events and laugh at how some Americans on the right aren’t taking Obama’s re-election victory terribly well.
