The Taking of Britain 123 ft. Gareth Dennis

The Taking of Britain 123 ft. Gareth Dennis

June 28, 2022

Rail Natter's Gareth Dennis joins the gang to discuss the RMT's strike action. We look at what made striking necessary, what striking does for everyone (not just the strikers!), and - of course - we run down the Mick Lynch daytime TV hit list.

Gareth mentions a strike fund in the episode, which you can access here: https://www.rmt.org.uk/about/national-dispute-fund/

June 25, 2022

This month we've spoken with friend of the show and knower of medieval history Dr Eleanor Janega (@GoingMedieval) on the topic of the British monarchy. Not just the current state of affairs (although we do get into that), but also the unbroken lineage all the way back to 1066. Why is it that we've simply put up with it for so long?

The gang talks to Ben Tarnoff about his book “Internet for the People,” which looks at the present miserable state of the internet “as public utility,” and how it can be made better. But first, we look at a startup back from the dead, think about the on-purpose recession that the global north is about to tip into and (thinking about other recessions), what we can expect, and how the IMF created political monsters it can no longer control.

Cryptocurrency 1929-2008 Speedrun (Framecount in Video)

Cryptocurrency 1929-2008 Speedrun (Framecount in Video)

June 21, 2022

This week, Riley, Milo, Nate, and Alice react to new developments from UK politics (it’s wedge week!) and the crypto world, where discussions are taking place to encourage central banks to help unwind stablecoins. What does that mean? Well, it means free money, more scamming, and no time spent on explaining the actual use case–there isn’t one.

As mentioned in the show notes, there’s a fundraiser for the 9 people arrested during a recent Stop Deportations action in Uxbridge. Please contribute here if you can! https://www.gofundme.com/f/support-stop-deportations

This week, Riley, Milo, and Alice speak with FT reporter and author Dan McCrum (@FD) about his forthcoming book 'Money Men: A Hot Startup, a Billion Dollar Fraud, a Fight for the Truth.' It is of course about Wirecard, and it's got some amazing details that we simply lose our minds about as Dan recounts them. Hope you enjoy!

Nate Will Be Synonymous with Failure

Nate Will Be Synonymous with Failure

June 14, 2022

Riley is out this week, and in his stead we’ve convened a special episode of Trashfuture featuring Milo, Hussein, Nate, and Alice on the topic of a failing ‘AI’ startup called Nate. Yes, it’s called Nate. And it’s a pure, concentrated example of ‘what if your robot was just a guy.’

We draw heavily from Malique Morris’s article from The Information, and you should read it https://www.theinformation.com/articles/shaky-tech-and-cash-burning-giveaways-ai-shopping-startup-shows-excesses-of-funding-boom and also follow him on twitter at @luxeoflique

Britainology 38: Jeremy Vine (feat. Jeremy Vine)

June 11, 2022

In this special edition of Britainology, Nate and Milo traveled to BBC2 Studios to interview the man himself, Jeremy Vine, in order to discuss how he keeps a straight face when asked to arbitrate questions such as 'should a panel of mums decide all criminal punishment in the UK' and 'is your tea kettle as loud as your lawn mower (please bring the lawn mower into your kitchen for a comparison).'

We're back with pure riffs and no topic, and we're joined by Joel, Joel, and Jackson from the popular Australian podcast Plumbing the Death Star. We recorded this back in March and now it's out. Please enjoy us rejoicing in the class system of car park sausages in Australia, the wonder of Bob Katter pointing a gun at a knife, and a story about a little boy who wanted a pet pig.

XP Grinding at the Spreadsheet Factory

XP Grinding at the Spreadsheet Factory

June 7, 2022

This week, Riley, Hussein, Nate and Alice discuss the cost-of-living crisis in Britain as seen through trade periodicals for grocers and the growing sentiment among the police (yes! Even among the British police!) that shoplifting to survive shouldn’t be punished. We also discuss new developments in the endless hackathon purgatory of the crypto world, where they want to make everything you’ve ever done in your working life tied to your identity, on the blockchain.
