#36 – War of the Fools

Nonsense appeared to be on a collision course with reason…presenting Buttons & Figs and the Oyster Actors on the Air in The War of the Fools. It was on this day, April 1st, in which weird happenings began to happen. Reporters began to report reportable events, reportable strange happenings, reportable odd sightings – a meat shower, a weird alphabet song, odd creatures sailing in a sieve making demands…what if it were all true?! Featuring voices from the pod-o-sphere, including The Past & The Curious, Composer Dad, and What If World. Tune in to Buttons & Figs to find out what the reporters are reporting this April Fool’s day. btw…does anyone have any stilton cheese?! #kidslistenaprilfools #stiltoncheese
