Notes

Although this episode is ostensibly about feminism and its negative effect on society, Ghost only stays on this topic for about half an hour. Because users in his Paltalk chatroom were discussing Ron Paul, Ghost instead shifts the episode to a discussion of Ron Paul and his belief that Paul's non-interventionist policies would have a negative effect on America's reputation as a superpower and the War on Terror, and that Paul would eventually run under the Libertarian ticket and "siphon votes" from the Republican Party (a prediction that didn't come true, as the Libertarians ultimately ran Bob Barr in 2008). A large portion of the episode consists of a debate between Ghost, readyworks (a Ron Paul supporter from Paltalk), and a caller named Jen (a supporter of short-lived candidate Duncan Hines who agrees with most of Ghost's conventional Republican beliefs). For the final half hour of the show, Ghost shifts the conversation back to the subject of feminism.

Ghost receives his first-ever call shortly into the broadcast, from a flamboyant-sounding man who claims to have the wrong number. It's generally agreed that this was Ghost's first troll. Ghost seizes upon the opportunity to use the caller as an example of one of the pussified American males which he believes are the product of feminism.

As in other early episodes of True Conservative Radio, Ghost hasn't quite developed his rambunctious on-air persona yet, and his voice is about an octave higher than what it would later drop to. However, some of Ghost's trademark phrases such as one that he derogatorily calls lesbians, "testicular fortitude" and "fruitier than a box of Froot Loops" are already in use, as is his tendency to respond poorly to criticism, demonstrated when he hangs up on a caller fairly promptly over a disagreement over the state of feminism in society and whether or not "progressive" and "liberal" describe two different political philosophies. The show was much more interactive than it is today, consisting mostly of a free-format debate with multiple callers kept on the horn for long amounts of time, a format that eventually led to Ghost getting trolled relentlessly and being forced to relegate callers to the last thirty minutes of the broadcast.

A prognostification Ghost made in this episode, that oral copulation between two men in front of an elementary school will one day be defended as free speech, is regularly referred back to by Ghost whenever gay rights make the news, such as in Capitalist Episode 506 (nearly ten years later) when Australia voted to legalize gay marriage.

Ghost's First Call

Ghost takes his first call ever. Yes, it was a troll. And not a very good one.
