This Wednesday, September 14 on SuicideGirls Radio, hosts Nicole Powers and Bradley Suicide will be joined by futurist, artist, and self-styled “misanthroplogist” Sean Bonner, who has a new book out entitled The New Oklahoma, which lays out a plan to make America way better.

“This is the best book about building a lake in the middle of Ohlakolma — wait, is that how you spell it? I should try again: OK-LA-HOME-AH yes, there it is. This is the best book about building a lake in the middle of Oklahoma that I have ever read.” – Wil Wheaton, lake enthusiast.

The World’s Leading BYOB Radio Show Is Sponsored By Mangria

“As a nightly consumer of red wine, I was shocked one evening to find I had just half a glass left in the bottle. So I did what any decent alcoholic, ex-con, American would do… I went to the fridge and the liquor cabinet, then poured, mixed and measured. Thus Mangria was born.” — Adam Carolla
