Podcasts Revisited:  Podcast XII  "Free Pussy Riot "

The original airdate of this podcast has been lost and forgotten, but it was sometime right around when Vladimir Putin was putting Pussy Riot in jail for singing "songs against the State" or some such nonsense as that.  We at Rivethead saw this as an opportunity to take our stand against oppression and censorship wherever those evils raise their head.  Apparently, it worked, as Pussy Riot is now free.  We didn't even try to include a track list.  It's all in Russian.  We can't write it, and you can't read it.
