2018: A Year of Brain Expansion Part 1 of 2 (feat. Simon Childs)

January 14, 2019

We’re leaving negativity behind in 2019. Instead, we’re getting up early each morning to jog 10 miles while playing influencer audiobooks at 2x speed. However, a lot happened in 2018, and we at least need to discuss it. This week, in part 1 of a 2-part episode, Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Nate (@inthesedeserts), join Vice UK home affairs editor Simon Childs (@simonchilds13) to discuss 2018, the year our brains got so irradiated by dumbness that we began appreciating Joker memes in earnest.

Children of the Coren feat. Jonathan Nunn

January 7, 2019

What if you could never be fired from your job -- even if you crossed every possible line, to include threatening to sexually assault and then immolate your neighbour’s child during a row over drum practice? What if you were also insanely racist? In your published columns? Well then, you’d be Giles Coren, Britain’s worst food writer. This week, Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Olga (@rocknrolga ) join Eater London writer Jonathan Nunn (@demarionunn) to discuss Giles’s reign of terror in the British food writing scene.

We also discuss transport secretary Chris Grayling’s scheme to fund a ferry company with no boats -- and, crucially, an article from Ed Husain on ‘Britain regaining its confidence’ that seems to be written by artificial intelligence.

Intelligence 2.0 feat. Felix Biederman

December 31, 2018

Happy new year, you voles, you vulgar abbey mice. The clock might just be striking midnight, but that’s no excuse for you to not ditch your family and the people who love you in order to listen to this week’s Trashfuture. In this episode, Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Alice Caldwell-Kelly (@AliceAvizandum) join special guest Felix Biederman (@ByYourLogic) of Chapo Trap House to discuss Steven Pinker’s exceptional work of analysis, “Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress.”

Okay, breaking kayfabe here -- this is the dumbest book on the planet. The idea that this even got published is proof of the sheer brain death involved among Harvard thought leaders. You will enjoy the takes, but you have to go into it with the following fact in hand: we didn’t make any of this up. These are real quotes.

Radical Horse Parts feat. Trevor Beaulieu and Wendy Liu

December 26, 2018

It’s a strange situation when we actually like something on this show - and therefore decided to have a relatively serious conversation about it.

On this week’s Trashfuture, Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Nate (@inthesedeserts) spoke with Wendy Liu (@dellsystem) and Trevor Beaulieu (@RickyRawls ) of the Champagne Sharks podcast about Boots Riley’s film ‘Sorry to Bother You.’ As you can possibly imagine, we really enjoyed this film and had a lot to say about it, specifically about how it’s an unabashedly socialist movie that’s also funny. 

Spoiler alert: yes, this podcast contains spoilers.

*Preview* #WeHaveBeenPubliclyShamed / Trashfuture Q&A

December 20, 2018

This week's bonus is the first installment of something we've been wanting to do for a while: a Q&A episode. However, before we could get there, we had to read our beloved boy Toby Young's insane holiday column about his 'vertiginous' 'defenestration' from public life. In this preview, you can get a taste of what it's like when we have free reign to respond to our curiouscat.

We did our best to answer your questions with a minimum of Yu Gi Oh references. Well, a relative minimum. If you want to hear the whole episode, sign up on the Patreon at the following link: https://www.patreon.com/posts/wehavebeenpublic-23436301

WeWork Presents: The Darkest Yearbook feat. Sarah Manavis

December 17, 2018

Business Joker. You thought it was just a dumb meme, but to your hardo connections on LinkedIn, it’s a way of life. On this week’s Trashfuture, Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Nate (@inthesedeserts) spoke with Sarah Manavis (@sarahmanavis) discuss Tumblr’s ban on porn (and how tech companies fundamentally do not understand their users), a WeWork job description for what sounds like the editor of a cult yearbook, why YouTube’s pro-racism user base hated its yearly rewind video, and a lot terrible business success ideas.

On this episode, we discussed an article that Sarah wrote about Tumblr. You can read it here: https://www.newstatesman.com/science-tech/social-media/2018/12/tumblr-s-porn-ban-another-case-social-media-sites-misunderstanding
