even the household batteries are problematic...if you don't want them in the trash ..do we just sort of leave them in the drawer for somebody else to deal with...they don't go in the compost ..the pigeons wont eat them .they stuck as buttons nothing..I think they might get collected if we use them like coins in slot machines..old casino machines converted to accept batteries we use🎰 you might get a coupon for new batteries -or win a prize🎫 with grandpa's old flashlight batteries♻️

Political propaganda inserted in your podcast, pretending to be a "fact correction", is not welcome. Especially when it amounts to a flat assertion that Trump's opponent was right and Trump was wrong - without the least shred of evidence to back it.
