First As Crisis, Then as Crisis-tunity feat. Joe Weisenthal

January 19, 2021

What the hell is going on with equity markets? Why is Tesla worth so much despite doing so little? Why has the line divorced itself from reality, and how long has this trend been happening? To answer this question, we brought on Joe Weisenthal (@TheStalwart) of the Odd Lots podcast at Bloomberg to discuss.

As a follow-up to our coverage of the recent events in Washington, we decided to speak with Annie Kelly of the QAnonAnonymous podcast (@AnnieKNK). What is the Q overlap with these protesters? What do they do now, seeing as the day of The Storm has come and gone? Find out by listening.

Chud Dawn Part 1: Immortan Joe Manchin feat. the Trillbillies

January 12, 2021

This week, we've brought on Tom Sexton and Tarence Ray of the Trillbillies Worker's Collective podcast (@thetrillbillies) to discuss the recent events in Washington: the US Senate flipping to the Democrats (and thus empowering Joe Manchin, the West Virginia Democratic Senator who never met an opioid company he didn't love), and of course some other stuff that happened involving guys in red hats.

UNLOCKED: In Search of an Even More Racist Facebook

UNLOCKED: In Search of an Even More Racist Facebook

January 11, 2021

Unlocking this episode in light of Parler et al being banhammered by the rest of the internet. This episode is all about the history and economics of one of the most strange and resentful subsectors of the tech industry: tech companies started by right wingers and grievances.

Original Copy: Have you heard the story about right-wingers who decide to build their own social media, crowdfunding, or even ridesharing sites? We're talking Parler, Gab, Hatreon, and the like. Why do they all fail? Why are they so poorly assembled? And why does this keep happening? Riley, Milo, and Alice attempt to decipher this riddle for our times.

Have you heard of a book called 'Nudge'? have you heard of 'nudge theory'? Well, we've dug into and -- believe it or not -- it's so deeply stupid that we had to make sure to discuss it on here as part of our Intelligence series with Chapo Trap House's Felix Biederman (@ByYourLogic). Hope you enjoy!

We're off this week, but we've unlocked our Netflix Part 2 episode for you to enjoy. We brought on Jathan Sadowski (@jathansadowski) and Ed Ongweso Jr (@bigblackjacobin) from This Machine Kills Podcast to discuss the famously sane and healthy workplace culture of Netflix with Riley, Milo, and Alice.

*PREVIEW* Britainology 7: The Falklands War

December 25, 2020

On this festive Britainology we are joined by Alice to discuss the 1982 Falklands War. Why has it permanently lodged in the psyche of the Boomers? Why do people care about these rocks in the middle of the South Atlantic? Why did a British task force commander decide to explode himself in order to dislodge a machine gun position? You will be able to learn all of this and more by listening.
