Happy New Year!!! We're back in 2020 with an intriguing short story from early 20th Century Japanese writer Ryunosuke Akutagawa, and his "In a Bamboo Grove"

CW on rape, suicide and violence.

We talk about Truth, how it can be such a difficult and flimsy thing, along with the power and violence of the State, and the death machine that is the US. Starting out in style! Enjoy!
