Topic: A radio show on a wide range of topics

I'm the guest with the goofy laugh.
We talk about a wide range of things, from the economy, a society without (or very little) oil, Hurricane Katrina, the Iraq war, and a bunch of other things. I got sort of sidetracked, I even quoted Gary Busey. Apparently, Paul (the host and a family friend) wanted to talk mainly about the economy, but I couldn't avoid talking about all the different stuff that's tied to the!
