Fixes a `Creating default object from empty value` on [line 61](
function north_cast_api_data($content) {
if (is_numeric($content)) $content = intval($content);

$content = $unserialized_content;
return $content;
add_filter( 'thermal_post_entity', function($data, &$post, $state ) {

// get all of the post's metadata
$custom_fields_raw = (object) get_post_meta($post->ID);

Hi, implemented your fix but I get a PHP error:
I get a fatal error with that 61 line 'Fatal error: Cannot access empty property in'
Do you see that too?
