The Exploding Star Podcast Episode 10 In this week's episode, we cover a range of topics. We begin by watching the building collapse in Florida. As of the time of this upload, there are over a dozen dead and 150 still missing in the rubble.

Next we talk about Iran. Three dozen news websites were seized by U.S. officials this past week. This comes on the heels of Trump's sanctions program which has hit the middle class in Iran pretty hard.

I want to discuss abortion as I have been recently reexamining this topic with all the discussion around a 6-3 supreme court possibly overturning Roe V. Wade. I poorly articulate the current state of affairs, with abortion rights protected through the 24th week under Roe V. Wade, and scientific consensus that there is no pain or other signs of awareness at that stage of fetal development. Despite this, abortion rights are coming increasingly under fire in the U.S.Please let me know what your opinion is on this subject as it's a divisive one.

We talk a bit about immigration, the current boogeyman at our doorstep, including Tony's experience with immigrant workers and a statistical look at crime.

Tony cover's the scandal in the Magic the Gathering community, with 3/4 of the prize pool just vanishing from this years big tournament. One has to wonder what role the corporate overloards at Hasbro had to do with this move.
