This episode is named for the fact that Rowan auctioned off his beard to raise funds for the Arts Wells festival > after our provincial government spend our children's inheritance and (also) cut all provincial arts funding after giving six billion dollars to olympic profiteers. (Don't let your economy be next.) Our cover is in honour of Rowan's own sacrifice for all that olympic "glory."
