Feel Bad Inc. feat Yasha and Fernando

July 27, 2021

We chatted to two riders with the German grocery delivery app Gorillas all about their unionisation drive, and their boss’s strange obsession with fire magic. Also, Maureen Dowd is a tech writer now and she’s been buffaloed by Silicon Valley’s resident “dad CEO” Dara Khosrowshahi.

July 22, 2021

We sat down with Jason Prado from the Drivers Cooperative in New York City to talk about how rideshare drivers are taking matters into their own hands in the fight against Uber, and have created a competing worker owned platform. But first, we have a ludicrous startup and a few fun news items to cover (including yet another supposedly "driverless" car, where it turned out to be just a guy in there).

Barrattly Legal feat. Owen Hatherley

Barrattly Legal feat. Owen Hatherley

July 20, 2021

This week, Riley, Milo, and Alice join special guest Owen Hatherley (@owenhatherley) of Tribune Magazine to discuss Barratt Homes: what is the deal with new-build housing in the UK? Why is it of such uniformly bad quality? And why has this become pretty much the only real new construction of homes in this country? Also in this episode: another re-discovered song from Johannes Vonk and the Clogheads.

Owen’s new collection Clean Living Under Difficult Circumstances: Finding a Home in the Ruins of Modernism is available from Verso Books here: https://www.versobooks.com/books/3789-clean-living-under-difficult-circumstances

*PREVIEW* Britainology 19: The City of London

July 16, 2021

Did you know that the City of London, the small mini-enclave that dates back to Roman times, is a separate state entity that predates the United Kingdom by hundreds of years? And that its special status makes it basically immune to disclosure rules and financial oversight? Well, sort of. Riley steps in to explain The Land of the Weird Bollards and much more.

*PREVIEW* Balthasar Speedboat v.2.0 feat Nish Kumar and Olga Koch

July 16, 2021

All riffs, no plot, no prior planning, and a long digression about a dog with a huge dick. It's Balthasar Speedboat yet again, this time featuring Riley, Milo, Olga, and friend of the show Nish Kumar. You will enjoy it! And you will learn a lot about Canadian malls.

Twûnkhöle Capital SA

July 13, 2021

This week, it’s Riley, Milo, Alice, and Nate discussing a startup that will make it even easier for you to not own a home, the dreaded ‘football situation’ in England, the UK government’s plans to end all COVID distancing measures, and a dicey situation in the US state of Maine involving self-declared MILFs.

July 9, 2021

This week, we're discussing a few things: weird academy schools in Britain that want to do performative draconian discipline, a startup that is, uh, child-centric, and much more. We are pleased to welcome Devon from Kill James Bond and Da YouTube Zone to give us their perspective as a former teacher, and pharaoh-tier riffs.

July 6, 2021

This week, we're discussing Secret Cinema's plan to crowfund investor capital, the fact that Secret Cinema did a performance in Kabul in 2011, a dumb 'parody' startup, a Tory Lord being criticised for corruption (shocker), our pre-election take on Batley & Spen, and much more. Riley is on a fancy holiday so this episode is a gathering of Milo, Hussein, Nate, and Alice. Hope you enjoy!

*UNLOCKED* Britainology 5: The Cult of the Legend

*UNLOCKED* Britainology 5: The Cult of the Legend

July 3, 2021

We brought on Riley to discuss a phenomenon as eternally British as bad weather itself: the legend. Who are British legends? What makes them act this way? How do you create a taxonomy of figures to distinguish between the Essex Geezer, the Entrepreneurial Legend, the High Street Hard Man, and Tim Westwood? Well, we gave it our best go.

This episode is from October 2020 so if anything is out of date, that is why!

*PREVIEW* Magna Carta Baz: TF Reviews ‘Robin Hood (2010)’ feat. Eleanor Janega and Patrick Wyman

July 2, 2021

This week, we've rounded up our favorite historians and subjected them to yet another absolutely terrible movie--this time it's Ridley Scott's 'Robin Hood,' a nearly 150-minute long film that sucks. Who could not say they loved a long digression into the Magna Carta's origins or a sequence we can only call Medieval Saving Private Ryan? You will enjoy this.
