*PREVIEW* Nut Flix Part 2 (feat. This Machine Kills)

November 27, 2020

As a continuation of our free episode this week, we brought on Jathan Sadowski (@jathansadowski) and Ed Ongweso Jr (@bigblackjacobin) from This Machine Kills Podcast to discuss the famously sane and healthy workplace culture of Netflix with Riley, Milo, and Alice. Guess what? It's bad. And it's probably coming to your workplace sooner rather than later.

It has come to our attention that Netflix has twice the market capitalisation of Boeing. How can this be? Well, it’s a byproduct of the 2008 crisis, an endlessly-expanding network fed by zero-interest loans and charter school zealots who believe that 100 million people can and will watch the next Orc Cop movie. We brought on Jathan Sadowski (@jathansadowski) and Ed Ongweso Jr (@bigblackjacobin) from This Machine Kills Podcast to discuss it with Riley, Milo, Nate, and Alice.

*PREVIEW* Tom Watson’s House of Pain feat. Nish Kumar

November 23, 2020

How to explain this? Tom Watson--yes, THAT Tom Watson--has written a 'taut, political thriller' about what if Labour and the Tories came together to make sure NHS patient data was sold to pharmaceutical companies in an ethical way. It's deeply boring in a manner that reflects its author, but it's also something else: an experience. Riley read the whole book and forced Nish Kumar to listen to it along with Milo, Hussein, and Alice. Hope you enjoy!

*PREVIEW* Britainology 6: Carry On Films (Based Anglovibes)

November 19, 2020

We're at it again. Nate and Milo have reviewed the 1968 film CARRY ON UP THE KHYBER for yet another Britainology, and this one is a real laser-focused look at this absurd island. Why is it so horny? Why is everything a double entendre? Is this really the nation that once ruled the waves? You be the judge -- hope you enjoy!

November 17, 2020

We tried to do a full cast episode but Hussein was busy with a ‘real job’. So we got Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum) to discuss a few things. Firstly: Keir Starmer’s desert island discs (yawn), plus a startup that does what you might call a novel riff on the idea of digital nomads. Behold, an episode of nothing but van lore. Van content. You will love it.

Quaid... start the podcast and save Mars...

Justin, Liam, and our very own Alice of Well There’s Your Problem Podcast (on Youtube!) are here to discuss Elon Musk's ludicrous plan to put humanity on spaceships with pizza restaurants in them and ship them off to Mars to live in large greenhouses for reasons of... well... Mars. Where else in the solar system are you going to live? Anyway, like most big stupid tech things - it's a fun story to distract you while SpaceX becomes a (sigh) privatiser of public goods through government contracting. Plus ca change.

November 10, 2020

Why are the Gulf countries so involved with backing tech startups? How many sovereign wealth funds are there, and why do they seem to always circle back to SoftBank? To answer this question we brought on Derek Davison (@dwdavison), a writer with Discontents News (@DiscontentsNews) and subject matter expert on the Gulf, to discuss it with Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards) and Alice (@AliceAvizandum).

It's been a while, but we've brought it back: our non-stop comedy riff series returns with Riley, Milo, and special guests Glenn Moore and Pierre Novellie. Riley posits the argument that 'The History Boys' is the actual true 20th century British artistic work. We also discuss airport novels and whole lot more.

On this week's bonus, Riley did the unthinkable. The unimaginable. He read Matt Forde's terrible book 'Politically Homeless' for us and described it to an all star cast of Riley, Alice, and special guests Bryn and Chris from the Beep Beep Lettuce podcast (@weedpod). You will love it, but not as much as Matt Forde loves Tony Blair.
