The Radio Derb transcript for June 14 is up—go here to read or listen. Sample:

We finally have a result in Mongolia's presidential election, I know my listeners will be pleased to hear. Businessman Khaltmaa Battulga won with 50.6 percent of the vote over his opponent, Miyeegombo Enkhbold of the ruling Mongolian People's Party.

I wouldn't mention this but for the facts that, one, Mr. Battulga is described as a "populist" by the New York Times, thus adding another notch on the walking stick of the worldwide populist revival; and two, the Times also tells us he is a former martial arts champion — perhaps he could put on a charity bout with his neighbor, Vladimir Putin — and three, I think it's neat to have any news at all out of Mongolia, where it seems like nothing much has happened since the 13th century.

What's that? You want to hear the Mongolian National Anthem? All right, just a snippet.
