Uber for the Spirit feat. Mathew Lawrence

September 17, 2018

We can’t get enough of IPPR reports (and insane conservative meltdowns in response to them) and this week, Riley (@raaleh), and Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Hussein (@HKesvani ) join IPPR researcher Matthew Lawrence (@DantonsHead) to discuss his recent report entitled ‘The Digital Commonwealth: From private enclosure to collective benefit,’ which you can read here.

Incel Proust: An Austerity Reverie feat. George Eaton

September 11, 2018

It wouldn’t be Britain if our elected leaders weren’t discussing new ways to cut the state even further, and this week, Riley (@raaleh), and Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Nate (@inthesedeserts) join New Statesman political editor George Eaton (@georgeeaton) to examine the principles behind austerity. Learn about faith-based supply-side economics, Sajid Javid’s annual reading of ‘Atlas Shrugged,’ and the recently released IPPR report that’s got everyone talking.

Thanks, Wonga! feat. Oscar Rickett

September 6, 2018

It’s a busy start to September, and now that we’ve all renewed our dhimmi permits, we can enter the no-go zone of Whitechapel to record and episode. This week, Riley (@raaleh), and Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Nate (@inthesedeserts) joined journalist and writer Oscar Rickett (@oscarrickettnow) to discuss his work reporting on ayahuasca entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley and, more importantly, on the demise of predatory UK usury magnates Wonga.

Hussein (@HKesvani) dialed in from exotic Vancouver, fatigued and red-eyed from another night of gaming.

Game of Slurs: International Worst Columnists Invitational Part 2 (feat. Boonta Vista)

September 3, 2018

In a continuation of last week’s episode, Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Milo (@Milo_Edwards) join guests Andrew Law (@IllyBocean) and Lucy Valentine (@LucyXIV) from Boonta Vista Socialist Club (@BoontaVista) for a roundup of terrible right-wing columnists in the land of our terrible Commonwealth forebears. We absolutely, positively saved the best (worst) for last.

You should definitely follow Boonta Vista — we had a great time putting this episode together and appreciate their patience, as we are sloppy boys.

Game of Slurs: International Worst Columnists Invitational Part 1 (feat. Boontavista)

August 30, 2018

For this week’s episode, Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Milo (@Milo_Edwards) join guests Andrew Law (@IllyBocean) and Lucy Valentine (@LucyXIV) from the extremely good Australian podcast Boonta Vista Socialist Club (@BoontaVista) for a discussion of a topic close to all of our hearts: the worst right-wing columnists in the Anglosphere, their greatest hits, their origin stories, and why ‘white man’ is the worst slur in the English language.

This discussion ran a bit long, and so we’ve cut it into a part 1 and 2 — part 2 will publish very soon, maybe next week, who knows (we lack professionalism). Also, Hussein fell asleep during the recording.

All Sex Work and No Sex Play feat. Molly Smith

August 22, 2018

For this week’s episode, Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Milo (@Milo_Edwards) discuss the absurdly high valuation of tech companies, the idea that tech impacts our lives as capital-subsidised precarity, and the fact that 40 percent of the US economy is effectively a shell game.

Later, Riley and Milo speak with Molly Smith (@pastachips), co-author of Revolting Prostitutes: The Fight for Sex Workers’ Rights, about how the UK’s approach to criminalising sex work and persecuting sex workers -- and why we should demand full decriminalisation now. Riley also makes a strong case for work in general being eliminated.

August 14, 2018

Fringe is ongoing and in this episode Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Milo (@Milo_Edwards) meet with comedian Aidan ‘Taco’ Jones (@AJ_Taco) and discuss tech platforms’ recent decisions to ban insane right-wing conspiracy mongers.

The Tears of Lloyd Blankfein feat. Josh Androsky

August 7, 2018

In this first episode of Trashfuture’s second year, Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Milo (@Milo_Edwards), speak to DSA Los Angeles activist Josh Androsky (@ShutUpAndrosky) about public banking, liberalism’s inability to provide answers in a rapidly worsening world, Tommy Robinson's total madness, and right-wing freakouts online. And on that note, this podcast is effectively a piece of evidence in Hussein’s upcoming soup malfeasance trial.

Juice Wayne feat. Gareth Reynolds

July 24, 2018

On this special 1-year anniversary of the Trashfuture podcast, Riley (@raaleh), Olga (@rocknrolga ), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and comedian Gareth Reynolds (@reynoldsgareth) -- host of the podcast ‘the Dollop’ -- about the infamous Juicero, and what its high-tech concept (and spectacularly low-tech demise) says about the capital class of Silicon Valley.

Riley’s Commie Book Club: ‘Violent Borders’

July 18, 2018

It’s another month, the moon has turned, a butterfly rustles its wings in the Amazon, and it’s time for yet another episode of Riley’s Commie Book Club! This month we’re reading 'Violent Borders' by Reece Jones, published by Verso Books. We talk about the roots of borders in exploitation, and the important role they play in allowing capital to externalise its own contradictions. Riley gets frequently distracted and remembers stories from his personal life.

Ably produced as ever by Nate.
