EP041: Ambient Sleaze (

By Jeffrey R. DeRego (
Read by Mur Lafferty (

“Good god, who’d do something like that?” Sarah rummaged through her purse for a handkerchief but couldn’t seem to focus on the task. Her mind was consumed with images of Tony’s perforated body.

“Well, I’ve seen the Tony Autumn Show, so we’ve got an APB out on everyone with a sense of moral decency and every freak, transvestite, midget wrestler, incestuous dad, jilted lover…”

Rated R. Contains profanity, some physical violence, and violence against dignity.

Finally an explanation for the popularity of Jerry Springer!  His show protects our species from annihilation.  Still, I'm not entirely convinced it's worth the price!  ;)

Also, interesting that she just takes the aliens word for it, as if aliens can't lie.  Maybe the aliens just like that kind of show and made up the elaborate story to rope her in?
