Failure to Launch feat. Hasan Piker

February 12, 2019

We did it. We streamed our podcast live. Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Nate (@inthesedeserts) managed to successfully host a live video podcast while speaking with Hasan Piker (@hasanthehun) on Twitch. We discussed the abortive (to put it mildly) launch of Turning Point UK. Just who are the weirdos that fund it and support it? Why are they all part of weird Oxford racism societies? And why is Candace Owens praising Hitler?

UNLOCKED Riley’s Commie Book Club: The Blurst Is Yet to Come

February 8, 2019

Riley's Commie Book Club is a bit different. This time, Riley speaks with scholar and author Peter Fleming — you might recognize the name from a previous episode discussing his book 'The Death of Homo Economicus' — and this time they cover the subject of Peter's new book, 'The Worst Is Yet to Come: A Post-Capitalist Survival Guide.'

Peter Fleming is a professor at the University of London and the University of Technology, Sydney. He is the author of several books, including The Mythology of Work (2015) and The Death of Homo Economicus (2017). His writing has appeared in the Guardian and Financial Times.

Peter stayed up late in Australia in order to have a lively discussion with your delightful host, and we're greatly appreciative of him.

You should buy Peter's book, and you can do so here: https://repeaterbooks.com/product/the-worst-is-yet-to-come-a-post-capitalist-survival-guide/

Somewheres, Anywheres, Sex Nerds feat. Bryan Quinby

February 4, 2019

Another week is upon us, and that means another Silicon Valley company has reinvented loan sharking. Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Olga (@rocknrolga ) reached out to someone with extensive knowledge in how payday lenders screw over the poor: Bryan Quinby (@MurderBryan), host of Street Fight Radio in Columbus, OH.

They discuss a loan-sharking payday lender for your rent, and the liberal fixation on books like J.D. Vance’s “Hillbilly Elegy” and its British equivalent, David Goodheart’s “The Road to Somewhere.” These books are bad, don’t worry, but they’re also deeply invested in the idea of valourising reactionary tendencies as natural and good things. Which is why we gave them the Trashfuture treatment. The article Riley references by Tom Whyman is here: https://www.vice.com/en_uk/article/yp7m5v/how-theresa-may-understands-people-as-somewheres-and-anywheres.

*Preview* Trashfuture Presents: Balthasar Speedboat 2

February 4, 2019

It was admittedly a shock to all of us that any of you liked our previous Balthasar Speedboat show. However, you did, and as such we've decided to revisit it with a new episode. You can hear Riley (@raaleh),  Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Olga (@rocknrolga ), Alex Kealy (@alexkealy), and Charlie Palmer (@cfppalmer) for a near hour of riffs. Did you know the British had a song in World War II dedicated to Hitler's balls? Did you know that's actually body shaming? All this and more, on Balthasar Speedboat 2.

Privatise the NHS, My A$$ (I Won’t Privatise the NHS) feat. Rob Delaney

January 28, 2019

It was a usual Friday afternoon in the Caliphate of Tower Hamlets. Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Olga (@rocknrolga ) were minding their own business when a man walked in with a baby. That man was Rob Delaney (@robdelaney), comedian and star of ‘Catastrophe’ on Channel 4. We discussed a terrible service that aims to provide feudalism in education, NHS privatisation plans, and why all of Matt Hancock’s acolytes can’t seem to stop taking jobs at health app companies.

This is the first of what will surely be a number of business baby podcasts. All future guests take note: bring babies.

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.
