The Line is Bored feat. Matthew Zeitlin

The Line is Bored feat. Matthew Zeitlin

March 2, 2021

Finance journalist Matthew Zeitlin (@mattzeitlin) joins the gang to discuss the wild and wonderful world of SPACs, which is basically the of company that happens when the Line gets really bored and just wants to feel something. Think of them as loot crates for investors. We also explore the dark underbelly or London’s Scottish restaurant scene, and have a little fun with a startup.

February 26, 2021

It's time once again for Britainology, and this week Milo and Nate are joined by Phoebe Roy (who you have have heard on Masters of Our Domain and 10,000 Posts) to discuss British 9/11. Do we mean 7/7? The 2011 riots? No, we mean the death of the Queen of Our Hearts, Princess Diana Spencer, in August 1997. Never has a nation freaked out more, and we provide the key to understanding it all.

TF: The College Years feat. Liv Agar

TF: The College Years feat. Liv Agar

February 23, 2021

UK state media and its various grotesques have decided that the 'free speech crisis on campus' is more important than our abysmal covid death rate--and pretty much any other story in the media. To discuss this phenomenon, we've brought on friend of the show and 3-time guest, Liv Agar (Liv Agar).

February 19, 2021

We've got Shanti Singh--housing activist, writer, and former Bernie campaign staffer--on to talk about the state of California -- why is it portrayed as such a far-left state, why is it actually so neoliberal, and what happens when its deranged tech lords decide to run for office?

Abigail Thorn (@PhilosophyTube) joins the gang to discuss coming out as a trans woman in Britain, and to explore the psychological, historical, and political roots of transphobia. But first, a startup that is nearly whimsical in its stupidity!

*PREVIEW* The Hanseatic Art World feat. Jessica Eaton

February 12, 2021

This week, a nearly complete cast of Riley, Milo, Nate, and Alice speak with Jessica Eaton, a fine art photographer working in Montreal. Why is it that the art world is basically a billionaire tax dodge? Why do certain hedge funds seem to have so much weight in fine art purchases, even if the works are never shown? What the hell is going on? Learn more by listening to this episode.

Starmpocalypse Now

Starmpocalypse Now

February 9, 2021

We managed to cobble together the entire cast in order to discuss three important things: first, Silicon Valley has reinvented the bus yet again. Next, Labour is simply falling apart, and their solution is: flag and troops. Finally, Toby Young wants to be a lord. Join all five of us as we do psychic damage to one another engaging with this.

*PREVIEW* Britainology 9: UK Rave Culture feat. UKRaveComments

February 3, 2021

Good lord, the Gen Xers of Britain are a special bunch. And man, do they love to reminisce in the YouTube comments. To discuss this phenomenon, and the culture surrounding it, we brought on TF techno expert Riley--as well as George, the creator of the @UKRaveComments twitter account--to discuss.

The Feels in England

The Feels in England

February 2, 2021

Britain continues to come crashing into contact with reality as the price of everything is going up, food rots in containers on both sides of the channel, and our entire political media ecosystem is wrapped in a spectacle of multilayered morality dramas about if the right people are feeling suitably guilty. What can we say but: "ahh, the British Isles."

We did an episode about the Gamestop short squeeze, and it features @Quantian1 and @neoliberal_dad, two finance geniuses with a lot to say on the topic. Get it here on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/posts/46994566

January 29, 2021

We've brought on friend of the show and multiple returning champion Séamus Malekafzali to discuss Saudi Arabia's deranged new city -- Neom -- and the specific detail that they're going to make a perfectly linear city called The Line. Do you know what its name is in Arabic? It's ذا لاين. Which is literally tha laaeen. Normal country, normal project!
