The Nice Kind of Censorship feat. Aidan ‘Taco’ Jones

August 14, 2018

Fringe is ongoing and in this episode Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Milo (@Milo_Edwards) meet with comedian Aidan ‘Taco’ Jones (@AJ_Taco) and discuss tech platforms’ recent decisions to ban insane right-wing conspiracy mongers. Is this a good thing? You decide. They also discuss the extremely well adjusted recent articles from Boris Johnson, Rod Liddle, and Brendan O’Neill.

The Tears of Lloyd Blankfein feat. Josh Androsky

August 7, 2018

In this first episode of Trashfuture’s second year, Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Milo (@Milo_Edwards), speak to DSA Los Angeles activist Josh Androsky (@ShutUpAndrosky) about public banking, liberalism’s inability to provide answers in a rapidly worsening world, Tommy Robinson's total madness, and right-wing freakouts online. And on that note, this podcast is effectively a piece of evidence in Hussein’s upcoming soup malfeasance trial.

Juice Wayne feat. Gareth Reynolds

July 24, 2018

On this special 1-year anniversary of the Trashfuture podcast, Riley (@raaleh), Olga (@rocknrolga ), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and comedian Gareth Reynolds (@reynoldsgareth) -- host of the podcast ‘the Dollop’ -- about the infamous Juicero, and what its high-tech concept (and spectacularly low-tech demise) says about the capital class of Silicon Valley.

The terrible Juicero advertisement that appears in the cold open is available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1oHp-VvhDE

Riley’s Commie Book Club: ‘Violent Borders’

July 18, 2018

It’s another month, the moon has turned, a butterfly rustles its wings in the Amazon, and it’s time for yet another episode of Riley’s Commie Book Club! This month we’re reading 'Violent Borders' by Reece Jones, published by Verso Books. We talk about the roots of borders in exploitation, and the important role they play in allowing capital to externalise its own contradictions. Riley gets frequently distracted and remembers stories from his personal life.

Ably produced as ever by Nate.

Abolish Silicon Valley feat. Wendy Liu

July 15, 2018

This week, Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and speak with leftist tech writer (and tech industry veteran) Wendy Liu (@dellsystem) about Silicon Valley’s labour force, what it means to unionise tech workers, and how she escaped the thrall of tech-libertarianism.

During the interview, Wendy mentions an article by Alex Press (@alexnpress ) about organising the tech sector. You can read it here: https://nplusonemag.com/issue-31/politics/code-red/

Canadian Jet-Ski Dealership Conservatives feat. Luke Savage and Fraser Watt

July 11, 2018

Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and special guest Fraser Watt (@fraserwat) speak with Canadian journalist and writer Luke Savage (@LukewSavage) about Ontario’s recently-elected Premier Doug Ford, the right-wing politician that Canadian liberals can only compare to Trump because they’ve forgotten about his moron brother Rob. Additionally, the team takes turns dunking on Theresa May’s Chequers summit and Elon Musk’s dumb toy submarine.

In this recording, Luke mentions two groups that deserve your support in Ontario: Fight for 15 and Fairness (https://www.15andfairness.org/) and Black Lives Matter Toronto (https://www.facebook.com/blacklivesmatterTO/).

Nate (@inthesedeserts) produced this, wrote the show notes, and has two opinions about podcasts: first, that any episode over 70 minutes is an abomination; second, that any podcast with more than five guests is a Blazin' Squad reunion.

Migration Station ft. Zoe Gardner

July 9, 2018

Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and recently returned Milo (@Milo_Edwards) speak with migrant advocate Zoe Gardner (@ZoeJardiniere ) about refugees, migrants, right-wing opposition to all forms of immigration, endless liberal equivocation on the topic, and whether or not Riley is an economic migrant (he is).

This episode was recorded prior to England’s advancing in the World Cup, though by the time we have a moment to even address the fact that it’s coming home, the joke will already have been murdered by the worst people on the face of the planet.

12 Huels for Life ft. Nelufar Hedayat

July 3, 2018

Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Milo (@Milo_Edwards) hosted documentary filmmaker Nelufar Hedayat (@nelufar) to discuss superfoods, Silicon Valley’s attempts at engineering future meals, Nelufar’s recent series ‘Food Exposed’, and the life and times of a food legend known as David Avocado Wolfe. We also get a Russia update from Milo, and a stern lecture on Charles Dickens.

‘Disinformatskaya’

June 28, 2018

In a special edition of Trashfuture recorded in early May, Riley (@raaleh) and Milo (@Milo_Edwards) hung out in Moscow with Russian comedian Yevgeniy Chebatkov and discussed the Russian comedy scene, why you can’t make jokes about Putin on TV, Tsarist-nostalgia restaurants, and Milo’s controversial opinion that maybe Stalinism was a bit much.

Hussein (@HKesvani) was unable to make the trip to Russia as he ‘works’ a ‘job.’

Ender’s Game: Racist Edition

June 24, 2018

This week, Trashfuture discusses some of our favourite topics: Elon Musk’s non-working cars, by-elections in Lewisham, and MAGA-supporting tech villains trying to augment Trump’s ICE atrocities with new gadgets -- because what is more American than victimising immigrants whilst never leaving your gaming chair? This was recorded about ten days ago, which you can mark by all of our completely inaccurate football predictions. Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani) and Milo (@Milo_Edwards) kept it extremely normal and original, by which we mean we ran out of guests who were willing to be in the same room as us.

You can commodify your dissent with a t-shirt from http://www.lilcomrade.com/, and the shirts are extremely soft and comforting for studying to lo-fi/hip-hop beats.

Nate (@inthesedeserts) produced this from Brooklyn, New York with Adobe Audition, iZotope RX Elements, and a tall cup of coffee (soup).
