It’s The Void, Folks

March 25, 2019

No guest this week, as the boys instead sit down solo to discuss the nihilistic right wing death cult that’s getting whipped into an upward spiraling murderous frenzy by the extremely respectable media. Why do they all rush to distance themselves from the things they encourage their readers to do? Why is it that when we make up a fake Brendan O'Neill article, the real Brendan O'Neill writes it basically verbatim?

*Unlocked* Riley’s Commie Book Club - ‘State of Insecurity’

March 24, 2019

It's that time again! In an unlocked bonus episode, Riley read a book, drank some wine, and is ready to talk about it to you fine people.

The Wetherspoons App Is The Highest Stage of Capitalism ft. Mark Watson

March 18, 2019

This week, Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum ) speak with comedian and writer Mark Watson (@watsoncomedian) about the Adam Smith Institute’s newest declaration: the that Wetherspoons app is the pinnacle of human achievement. Did you know that you can order peas to anyone, at any table at any Wetherspoons pub in Britain? Oh wait, publicly-owned buildings? Never mind those, get the damn peas.

*Preview* Trashfuture Presents: Balthasar Speedboat 3

March 14, 2019

This is a promo of this week's Patreon bonus episode.

We're back in the saddle for yet another edition of Balthasar Speedboat. This episode features Riley, Milo, Nate, Alex Kealy (@alexkealy), Olga Koch (@rocknrolga), and Pierre Novellie (@pierrenovellie) -- and covers the usual spectrum of topics (but mostly Michael Jackson). Did you know Riley apparently sheds hair as a defensive mechanism? Did you know that Richard Nixon was convinced that gays brought down the Roman Empire? All this can be yours, and more.

Billion$ feat. James Meadway

March 11, 2019

We live in a blessed time, a truly wise era of human history in which Kylie Jenner’s cosmetics front company is somehow valued at $1 billion USD. Now, this is not a good thing, and special guest James Meadway (@meadwaj) -- an economist, writer, and former adviser to John McDonnell MP -- explains why this is just one symptom of the morass in which we find ourselves, and why recovering an oppositional style of politics is more important than ever.

This episode features all of the Trash lads -- Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Nate (@inthesedeserts), and including James this makes for 5 dudes in one room. As Hussein explains during the episode, this is a crucial limit.

“It Just Means ‘Ignorant Person’” feat. Alex Kealy

March 4, 2019

Friends, we at the Trashfuture podcast do not in any way want our jokes to become real. We don’t want Elon Musk to control the internet with a submarine like the Sons of Liberty in Metal Gear Solid 2. We don’t want Matt Hancock to parkour his way into our phones with a mandatory app. But we always knew in our hearts that the essence of conservatism is “why can’t I say the n-word.” And that latter item happened this week, as certified normal person and author Lionel Shriver wrote exactly that in the Spectator. As is to be expected, Nate (@inthesedeserts), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Olga (@rocknrolga ), and Alex Kealy @alexkealy perform a deep dive on Lionel’s own words. Shocker: they’re insane!

Riley is not on this episode. He was busy skiing and handed the keys to the purple Trashfuture Lamborghini to the rest of us. You Won’t Believe What Happened Next.

The Labour Splittacular feat. Mollie Goodfellow

February 25, 2019

A new party formed, except they’re not a party, and they don’t have policies, and their logo makes them look like a store where you can buy a  £10 cup of juice. That’s right, we’re talking The Independent Group on this week’s episode. Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Nate (@inthesedeserts) spoke with comedy writer Mollie Goodfellow (@hansmollman) about the Labour splitters and their delightful approach to ideology versus facts.

Nostalgia Avengers: Infinity WW2 feat. Owen Hatherley

February 19, 2019

We love Britain and British things. We’re a podcast suffused with the Blitz Spirit, the Dunkirk Spirit, the Dying of Black Lung Spirit, and in honour of that, we decided to take on the big issues of modern Britain, such as the following: some rich people tried to sue the Tate Modern because they didn’t want to buy curtains. This week, Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Nate (@inthesedeserts) spoke with Tribune Magazine culture editor Owen Hatherley (@owenhatherley) about the Tate Modern viewing platform, architecture in London, Winston f**king Churchill, and much more.
