LIVEFUTURE II: This Time… It’s Accidental ft. Many Friends

March 4, 2018

It's time for the TRASHFUTURE accidental live show. Riley (@raaleh) and Hussein (@HKesvani) got up in front of a bewildered crowd with some old friends: Elena Cresci (@ElenaCresci) from TV, Luke Bailey (@ImBadAtLife) from the internet, and Jack Frayne-Reid (@coplandresident), scurrilous host of the disreputable Reel Politik Podcast (@reel_politcast). We do a product that nearly killed Len, we read yet another article from our favourite nu-metal edgelord Brednan O'Neill, and then we resurrected Cop or Comrade? for the digital age (spoiler they're all cops).

Thanks to everyone who came out and helped us pay for the cost of the room, and shout out especially to @justafish, who was instrumental in helping cover the cost of the recording. We broke even!

There will be more live episodes! Updates to come.

Towards a Political Theory of Smashing ft. Matt Christman

February 28, 2018

Matt Christman (@cushbomb) from Chapo Trap House joins Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Hussein (@HKesvani) to talk about how our culture has fallen apart into nothing but a morass of aspirational references loop-de-looping into one another (with an honourable mention of the Rick and Morty hell-sauce), and then go through how to be a Luddite in the 21st century. We also get into some podcast insider chat, as we learn what happens when you cross Chapo and Pod Save America.

love you all

The Corbyn Commie Controversy ft. Luke Bailey and Emily Hines aka @IHateNYT

February 25, 2018

FIXED AUDIO 

Riley's vacation sure did put a dent in the release schedule. But we're back! Abi's back! Baby's got back! Whatever. Riley (@Raaleh), Olga (@Rocknrolga), Abi (@AbiWilks), Milo (@Milo_Edwards) are joined by Luke Bailey (@ImBadAtLife) subbing in for Hussein (@HKesvani) and Emily Hines (@IHateNYT) to talk about the Corbyn commie smears (this was recorded pre Ben Bradley apology) at some length in the first half, and then Emily comes on in the second to help us rubbish the United States Paper of Record (record shortest accidental hiring of someone with connections to white supremacist groups, to be specific). There's a lot in this one, so I hope the wait was worth it.

TRASHSUPPLEMENT to The Presidents Club: A Club for Presidents

February 19, 2018

Content note: sexual assault

Riley (@raaleh) and Niamh (@Niamh_Mcintyre) sit down to re-hash the conversation from the original President's Club episode that got eaten by audio goblins. Specifically, we talk about Niamh's Vice article on sexual harrassment in the service economy. We go into why events like this are a hydra, and without robust labour protections given to casualised service workers to cauterise the wounds, will continue to spring up.

Full episode later this week now that Riley's back from holiday!

Humpty Dumpty Politics ft. Owen Jones

February 15, 2018

It's a TRASHFUTURE half-i-sode spooktacular. Journalist Owen Jones (@OwenJones84) comes through the bougie hackney flat to join Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), Milo (@Milo_Edwards) and Reel Politik's Laura (@thisgeordielass) filling in, to shoot the shit and talk about Theresa May's weird "defeat socialism" speech.

Tier Fun Operators ft. Nate Bethea

February 11, 2018

This week Riley (@Raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Olga (@rocknrolga), belatedly joined by Milo (@Milo_Edwards) sit down with Nate Bethea (@inthesedeserts) from the leftist troopcast, What A Hell of a Way to Die (@HellOfAWay) to talk all about the incredibly stupid ways in which the military uses technology - from the Strava fitness tracking app doing radical praxis by doxxing US military facilities around the world and tech-f*cking procurement nonsense.

We then read a fawning article by the Adam Smith Institute's perennial trash thinker Dr. Madsen Pirie about Elon Musk's dumb space launch. Riley has another anger short curcuit.

Wot Do U Call It? ft. Ash Sarkar

February 5, 2018

Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Milo (@Milo_Edwards) calling from inside a car in Utah, sit down with Ash Sarkar (@AyoCaesar), senior editor at Novara and Wiley biographer to talk about the history of and political bent of Grime off the back of Ash's run in with Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain.

Then, in an uncharacteristic move, the second half explores some more sincere topics rather than piss stained irony, with Ash turning it around and asking us about being a Muslim on the left (well, mainly Hussein) and the broader political purpose of irony, and the role of persuasive language. It was a really interesting, and often reflexive conversation I enjoyed having.

Anyway, follow us on Twitter - @trashfuturepod

The Presidents Club: A Club for Presidents ft. Mic Wright and Niamh McIntyre

February 3, 2018

Howdy y'all. Welcome to your weekend Trashfuture. Join Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and our twitter friend Suze Marsupial (@suzemarsupial) filling in as fourth host to talk about the slimiest take on the President's Club from the slimiest journalist out there (Brendan O'Neill, of course) in the first half with journalists Niamh McIntyre (@Niamh_Mcintyre) and Mic Wright (@brokenbottleboy). Audio goblins attacked the first segment, so we unfortunately lost our detailed discussion of Niamh's article on the sexualisation of the service industry, but expect that this week.

In the second half, we discuss Mic's exposé on local councils and homelessness policy, the cult of homeownership, and the dumbest "tech" solution we've yet seen pointed at a problem of this magnitude.

Niamh's article is here: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/zmqdy8/sexual-harassment-is-all-too-common-in-hospitality-work

Mic's article is here: https://mic-wright-dl3y.squarespace.com/what-you-need-to-know/2018/1/13/homelessness

Mindfulness Meltdown ft. Maggy van Eijk

January 29, 2018

Riley (@Raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Hussein (@HKesvani) sit down with journalist and mental health writer Maggy van Eijk (@MaggyVanEijk) to talk about the mendacious claptrap that is self help and self care and the other ways in which we try to inject psychology into our veins to escape from the hell pit of capitalism. It's a fun romp that includes a visit to Jay Shetty's fantasy land, a couple products from Arianna Huffington's scammy well being company, and two readings - one from liberal douchebag Richard Branson on how to be happy, and then on Alpha Dog Big Dick David Brooks on Jordan Peterson, whose dick curls like a pig's tail.

Check out Maggy's book, Remember This When You're Sad!

The Army of Dorkness ft. Jake Flores

January 21, 2018

It's the Trashfuture podcast comedy review! Join Riley (@Raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and a RETURNING Charlie (@cfppalmer) are joined by Jake Flores (@feraljokes) to go through Breitbart London editor Raheem Kassam's page turner, No Go Zones: How Sharia Law Is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You. At one point, Riley's friend Johann (@Johann_C_C) - a recognised expert on the Deobandi movement - jumps in to lend a little factual weight to the jokes.
