KMO and the Lovely Olga K traveled to Cincinnatus, New York to talk with anti-fracking activists, Jim Weiss and Joe Heath of GDACC (Gass Drilling Awareness of Cortland County). The conversation focuses on the intricacies of gas drilling leases and the difficulties that land-owners experience in getting out of those leases even after the scheduled termination date specified in the lease has passed. They describe why natural gas fracking as conducted by corporations like Cheseapeake Energy is neither clean nor affordable and how the practice of bundling those leases and selling them to foreign powers invalidates the industry propaganda about freeing America from dependence on foreign sources of energy. Later in the episode KMO talks with musician Float23 about the new C-Realm theme music.
