Robot Chores feat. James Vincent

Robot Chores feat. James Vincent

May 13, 2019

Well, the Conservatives are at it again. Whether it’s Matt Hancock or Liz Truss or Rory Stewart, they’re out being dumb and unaware. But don’t worry, friends -- your reassembled gang of all original lads, Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Nate (@inthesedeserts) are here to tell you why the Instagram Tories are bad and untrustworthy.

This week, we’re joined in studio by James Vincent (@jjvincent), senior reporter for the Verge, on the topic of hellish developments in automation. Imagine if Capital could make robots driven by drone operators in countries without a minimum wage? And imagine those robots were meant to act like butlers? You can read about it in James’s article here: https://www.theverge.com/2019/5/9/18538020/home-robot-butler-telepresence-ugo-mira-robotics

Additionally, we reference an Astra Taylor article from Logic Magazine, which you can read here: https://logicmag.io/05-the-automation-charade/

TFOTY Gives Back

TFOTY Gives Back

May 6, 2019

Britain has a serious need for Agony Aunts. Whether it’s a mundane or bizarre problem, people are out there asking for advice on issues such as: racist party guests, children who hate them, how to divide their expansive estates, border stones, and other completely bananas issues. This week, Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Olga (@rocknrolga ), spoke with musician GFOTY (@gfoty) about to help these wayward souls, these Jacobs Rees-Mogg, these Rods Liddle. Surprise, surprise -- the solution often involves Katie Price.

The closing music is a cover of Blink-182's 'All the Small Things' by GFOTY, and you can get it on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwV8FdzOOLM&feature=youtu.be

Capitalism Is Sucking Itself Off feat. Grace Blakeley

Capitalism Is Sucking Itself Off feat. Grace Blakeley

April 29, 2019

Why is it that there are so many billion-dollar startups that ultimately don’t do anything? Under normal circumstances, Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Hussein (@HKesvani) would just make a joke about Yu-Gi-Oh dragon dick in order to describe it. However, this week we were lucky enough to get expert insight from Grace Blakeley (@graceblakeley), the New Statesman’s economics commentator. So, learn all about the inherent contradictions in the value-extraction approaches of this newer and dumber capitalism—explained of course through the usual genre of joke (we never, ever, ever change our format).

In this week's bonus episode, Riley, Milo, and Hussein speak with writer Karen Geier (@karengeier) about Butt-mentum—the sudden ubiquity of Pete Buttigieg—as well as other topics to include the Extinction Rebellion protests and an *insane* denunciation of Heathrow Airport by a man writing for Conservative Woman. It's good, folks.

A Blair for All Seasons

A Blair for All Seasons

April 23, 2019

Every now and again, Tony Blair pops up to tell us that we’re doing too much social justice and that maybe Tommy Robinson has a point. This week, the gang of Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum) discuss a report from the Tony Blair Institute for Social Change about—and this is not hyperbole—why populism is apparently immigrants’ fault? It’s bad, of course, but chances are good that no one will read it except for irony podcasters.
