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.

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.

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.

Nate (@inthesedeserts) produced this from Brooklyn, where the current temperatures are near 35°C and everyone is too weary to be walkin’ here.
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.’
You can commodify your dissent with a t-shirt from http://www.lilcomrade.com/, and particularly you should buy this tote bag because it’s basically our show’s ethos: http://www.lilcomrade.com/product/tech-won-t-save-us-tote-bag
Nate (@inthesedeserts) produced this from Brooklyn, where the trains don't work but where artisanal roasters make the highest-quality coffee (soup).

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.

June 17, 2018
Trashfuture decided to take on the concept of Juche this week. Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Olga (@rocknrolga) host VICE and BBC journalist Jake Warren (@TheJakeWarren), who gives his take on Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un’s recent get-together in Singapore, why it offended so many American liberals to see the American flag next to the North Korean one, and what North Korea is like on the inside (to include its only legal gambling spot).
Hussein (@HKesvani) was out on deadline for this episode. He’s a ‘real reporter’ with ‘a career.’
You can commodify your dissent with a t-shirt from http://www.lilcomrade.com/, and if you don’t, you’ll disappoint us all.
Nate (@inthesedeserts) produced this and is slowly but doggedly getting the boys to turn up their microphone levels whilst recording.
June 12, 2018
This week, a slightly-not-quite classic Trashfuture crew of Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Nate (@inthesedeserts) got together in the Caliphate of Tower Hamlets to speak with Felix Biederman (@ByYourLogic) about how America and Britian see and use one another. In addition to exploring the political purpose horror stories of Britain serve for America, we also talk culture, Brexit, and of course horny intellectual conservatives. Also a lot about Love Island.
The FSB detained Milo (@Milo_Edwards) after he tried to land an ‘in Soviet Russia’ joke without realising Sergei Lavrov was in the audience. We hope he’s repatriated alive.

This week, the original TF crew of Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (), and Milo () speaks to the Guardian's Jonathan Shainin () on the topic of Niall Ferguson's Bond villain antics, the Evening Standard's recent sale of itself to the app lords, and a robust debate on whether or not free speech is an absolute and abstract thing.
Nate () smuggled himself into the Sharia no-go zone of Tower Hamlets to guest on this episode, after which 'Viley' confined him to his flat and forced him to edit this on his extremely unclean laptop.
We will only respect people who commodify their dissent with a t-shirt from http://www.lilcomrade.com/
Please keep the Saracen Guards of Bethnal Green in your thoughts, as invaribly they're really hungry enforcing Sharia while fasting.

This week, Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Milo (@milo_edwards) are back in the studio in the Caliphate of Tower Hamlets recapping centrist and extremist idiots' absolute dumbest takes on the Irish referendum results. They cover Christian ISIS, Classical Athenian democracy, and a lot of busting jokes.
The gang also discusses Tommy Robinson’s recent legal issues, what sort of business literature is worth reading, and -- as always -- the ontology of soup and sauce.

Nate (@inthesedeserts) produced this episode slowly, deliberately, and with an ear towards avoiding a libel charge.

It's that time again. Riley (@raaleh) grabbed a book, grabbed a mic, and opened up People of the Abyss, a 1903 book by American travel writer Jack London, about his experiences living in East London in that time. His observations on poverty, housing, inequality, capitalism, and imperialism are basically all analagous today. Enjoy! Also follow us on @trashfuturepod.
