*Preview* Riley’s Commie Book Club - For a Left Populism

October 21, 2018

Please enjoy a preview of this week's bonus: Riley's Commie Book Club, reviewing Chantal Mouffe's "For a Left Populism. Why are we constantly told that the status quo — i.e. neoliberal market economics  — is the natural order? Why does the centre hate socialism more than fascism? Why is it a bad thing that socialism might leave the absolute wealthiest on the planet worse off than they are in our current gilded age? And why do they want to live in orbiting space stations? Listen to this episode to answer all these questions, and more.

50 Cent: The Global King of Cool feat. Patrick Monahan and Kimberley McIntosh

October 17, 2018

On this week’s Trashfuture podcast, Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani) spoke with Kimberley McIntosh (@mcintosh_kim), policy officer at the Runnymede Trust, and Patrick Monahan (@pattymo), comedian and cohost of What a Time to Be Alive, about some topics close to our hearts: the insane writings of the next Tory candidate for London Mayor, Shaun Bailey.

Damn! Makes You Think!! feat. Hasan Piker and Trevor Strunk

October 11, 2018

We’re having a blast in the Caliphate of Tower Hamlets. Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani) and Nate (@inthesedeserts) met with Hasan Piker (@hasanthehun) from the Young Turks and discussed the important things in life: gaming, posting, and why Trashfuture villain Elon Musk may actually be the platonic ideal of a life lived online.

We also held a quick conversation with Trevor Strunk (@Hegelbon) to discuss his recent article about Fortnite, how it relates to scarcity, and why a lot of dads wonder what the hell it even is:  https://theoutline.com/post/6325/fortnite-logic-of-scarcity?zd=1&zi=mm7zhkdo

The Black Hand of Streaming feat. Franz Ferdinand

October 2, 2018

It’s been a big seven days for Trashfuture: we moved in to our new basement office in East London for starters, and this week Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Nate (@inthesedeserts) sat down with Alex Kapranos @alkapranos) and Bob Hardy (@B0bHardy) from Franz Ferdinand (a band you might have heard of) to discuss streaming’s effect on artists, why they believe in the welfare state, the dangerous effects of austerity on creative arts, and -- of course -- some discussion of our favourite billionaire idiots.

A huge thank you to Bob and Alex for being such gracious and patient guests, considering this is easily one of the worst podcasts ever to exist.

If you’re as big of a Franz Ferdinand fan as us, you should definitely buy their new album ‘Always Ascending’ directly from Domino Records: https://franzferdinand.dominomart.com/
