Trashfuture (Re)Wrapped ft. Dan Boeckner

December 7, 2021

Dan returns for another look at Spotify - in the last year have they paid artists more, or have they channelled excess profits into an investment in AI defence technology “for the defense of democracies” whatever that means. Also, a startup and a truly astounding article.

December 3, 2021

We spoke with The Athletic’s investigations writer Joey D’Urso (@josephmdurso) about the frenzied tie up between high risk, unregulated world of blockchain/crypto ventures. What is a “fan token,” why is Paul Pogba “the father of dragons,” and why does Manchester City need a “regional partner in decentralised finance” in the first place?

November 30, 2021

This week, we're joined by Becca Wilks (@WilksBecca) of The National Wales to discuss a confidence and supply arrangement between Welsh Labour and Plaid Cymru, and how it relates to the history of Welsh Labour in general. Of course we also discuss a Wales-centric startup that plans to heat homes in the most annoying way possible. And yes, we also discuss The Peppa Pig Incident. Hope you enjoy!

November 29, 2021

Look, this is something of a loose episode because Milo was on tour while we recorded it. However, in an effort to satisfy our urge to explain Britain, we watched the 2016 film GANGSTERS, GAMBLERS AND GEEZERS which is a z-grade British knockoff of Harold and Kumar, features none other than Dave Courtney, and contains some of the worst shit we've ever seen.

November 29, 2021

It's time once again for Britainology, and this week Milo and Nate are joined by Phoebe Roy (who you have have heard on Masters of Our Domain and 10,000 Posts) to discuss British 9/11. Do we mean 7/7? The 2011 riots? No, we mean the death of the Queen of Our Hearts, Princess Diana Spencer, in August 1997. Never has a nation freaked out more, and we provide the key to understanding it all.

The Shape of Things To Come feat. Seamus Malekafzali

November 23, 2021

Riley, Milo, and Alice are joined by our friend Séamus Malekafzali (@seamus_malek) for a Neom Status update. With the rollicking success of The Line leaving every industry the world over revolutionised forever, Saudi has added yet another dimension to the shape of innovation. But first, a reflection on the growth and role of vigilantism in the US and U.K., and a look at the dreams versus the reality of electric car producers who promise to change the world but still haven’t really made any… cars.

This week, Nate and Milo discuss the phenomenon of remembrance poppies and the ways in which they've become a symptom of Britain's deeply unwell state. Solemn icons of the human cost of war? Hell no, slap that shit on a pizza and consume it, with honour.

The Fabulous Mechanical Turk ft. Phil Jones

The Fabulous Mechanical Turk ft. Phil Jones

November 16, 2021

We speak to Phil Jones (@philjones7771), author of Work Without the Worker, about microwork and how AI is fake, and most of it is just tiny tasks done by workers in the global south and dressed up as technology. We get deeper into how exactly how this practice developed, how its economics are rooted in overproduction, and how boosterish liberal institutions cheer-led the whole process.
