- Published Sun, May 1, 2011 by Arkenor Oakshadow, Breki Tomasson and Petter Mårtensson

Episode 19 of Claims of the Normal is up and about, ready to put a spring in your step and a smile in your shoe. … Or however that expression goes.

This week, it was all about President Obama releasing his birth certificate in full … Now; did he really have to do that or are we going to far with this persecution? (link and link for more). We also updated you a little on the latest things going on with the PSN network and Sony (link) as well as brought you some news about Squids in space! (Hail to the Squid!) (link) and Superman setting aside his American citizenship! (link)

All in all, a fun episode. Here’s a video of the White House Dinner that we mention so often during the show:


Claims of the Normal

Claims of the Normal was the first show to launch on the CSICON Network. Originally intended as the only show to run on the website csicon.org (the 'con' in CSICON stands for Claims of the Normal, after all), it quickly became the launch vehicle for so much more. Breki and Petter started the show, and got Arkenor on board, and it all just went from there.

The show, over time, was replaced by The MMOsketeers, starring Petter, Arkenor and Teppo, as well as Instanews, starring Breki and Jack. None of these shows exist in their original form, but the legacy created by Claims of the Normal lives on.
