This time we are blessed with two musicians whom we are both fans of. Jonathan Coulton, known best for his Code Monkey and zombie songs, and MC Frontalot, known best, apparently for his back trouble int he nerdcore documentary but really for his amazing nerd rap prowess.

We spend a good amount of time talking about the President receiving the Nobel Peace prize but also discover some truths about the world economy from zombies and vampires.
