*PREVIEW* Bride of Frankenstein’s Balance Sheet feat. Rob Smith

April 16, 2021

Contrary to popular belief, we were not the people who broke the story about Lex Greensill and supply chain finance -- we just fell in love with it because it was the perfect intersection of all our interests (tech bullshit, obvious fraud, Australians, guys). However, someone who has been on this story since its inception is Financial Times journalist Rob Smith (@BondHack), and he's on the show today to review what's happened in this big ol' mess-er-idoo.

Waiting for Lordstown feat. Bryan Quinby

Waiting for Lordstown feat. Bryan Quinby

April 13, 2021

“We’re bringing the jobs back!” has long been the rallying cry of the right, but what kinds of businesses are actually coming back to places like Lordstown, Ohio? We are joined by Bryan Quinby (@murderxbryan) of Street Fight Radio to do a deep dive on Lordstown Motors - a “too good to be true” electric car manufacturer that has set up shop in the town of the same name. It’s all well and good when rich people take money off one another, but what about the workers who believe their lives are getting back on track?

The primary source for this episode was this report published by short seller Hindenburg Research, which also similarly exposed Nikola. https://hindenburgresearch.com/lordstown/

You asked for it, you got it, and now you get to hear an episode of Balthasar primarily concerned with a 2010s-era nightclub in Toronto whose primary selling point was its luxurious women's toilets. Enjoy!

Met Police Given “Two Thumbs Up” by Met Police (feat. Leslie Kern)

Met Police Given “Two Thumbs Up” by Met Police (feat. Leslie Kern)

April 7, 2021

We sat down with Leslie Kern (@LellyK)--feminist geographer, academic, and author of Feminist City: Claiming Space in a Man-Made World--to discuss what it means that "a feminist city is a police free city," in the wake of a slew of misogynistic, racist, and otherwise generally brutal actions attributed to London's finest. First, though, we take a look with some satisfaction at Deliveroo's shoddy IPO performance.

Magna Carta Landlords: America Version feat. Sam Knight

Magna Carta Landlords: America Version feat. Sam Knight

March 30, 2021

This week, we’re joined by Sam Knight of the District Sentinel (@TheDCSentinel) to discuss a U.S. Supreme Court case that may make it even harder for union organizers to meet with farm labourers in the US. With the exceptionally rational and normal composition of the Court, chances are good that this could make things even worse. We also discuss Prince Harry becoming the chief engagement officer at a mental health startup in the US, because why wouldn’t he.

*PREVIEW* Britainology 13: The Big Night Out feat. Tom Usher

March 29, 2021

This week, Nate and Milo address the important issue: why is there a culture of getting on it and getting completely blasted out of your mind? What is a big night out? What is the sesh? What is the deal with those guys in the picture? To help our investigation, we brought on nightlife expert and journalist Tom Usher (@Tom_Usher_) to discuss.

March 21, 2021

In this episode, Milo takes Nate on the most inscrutable journey yet: a vision of British 1980s/90s sitcoms that are too cockney to be parsed without a translator. Yes, it's the 'Heroes and Villains' episode of Only Fools and Horses, perhaps the most British thing Nate has had to encounter yet, and the one that did the most to break his spirit. Hope you enjoy!
