Hey, threadheads. It's a different day than we'd normally be in your feed, and we HAVE... something different for you!

It's the first episode of a new series from WBUR, our home station, of course, and The Trace. It's called "The Gun Machine," and it's an 8-part series about the history of the gun industry in America and the industry's biggest supporter... THE GOVERNMENT.

This first episode is all about how the United States has shaped, and been shaped by, the gun industry — and how we all play a role.

A trigger warning... some actual triggers get pulled in this episode. You'll hear that. So take care. And you dig it, the second episode is already waiting for you. Just search for "The Gun Machine" wherever you listen to Endless Thread.
