Infernal Theories ft. Grace Lavery

Infernal Theories ft. Grace Lavery

October 26, 2020

Writer and academic Grace Lavery joins the gang to reminisce about our favourite Quibs - but honestly, how could you even pick one? We also discuss how the Tories are very concerned with protecting working class students by fighting imaginary culture wars against "critical theory" while subjecting them to holiday starvation.

UNLOCKED - Goldearm: RIP Quibi 2020-2020 (ft. Beep Beep Lettuce)

October 25, 2020

Quibi is dead. Long live Quibi. We are unlocking the second of our two part series on Quibi to commemorate the impact Quibs have had on our society, culture, and ourselves. The land and the Quib are one!

ORIGINAL SHOW NOTES: Our friends Chris and Bryn from the podcast Beep Beep Lettuce join us to watch a selection of show on Quibi. Suggested talking points include the Golden Arm, Our Friend the Sex Doll, and other outgrowths of the capitalist Dadaism reified in Quibi. Listen to us all become mentally unwell.

Twitch streamer LivPosting returns to talk about her experiences in the job market, and how she almost got a job with a Zoomer-only consulting firm making millions of dollars from teaching Raytheon executives how to say "yeet." Also, is a phone box in rural Winchester the new world epicentre of the BLM movement? According to one brain poisoned conservative columnist, it is! Local hi-jinx abound.

*PREVIEW* Britainology 5: The Cult of the Legend

October 22, 2020

In a preview of the most recent Britainology, 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.

Dave Courtney’s Illegal Cinema feat. Olly Thorn

October 20, 2020

It sure is good that the UK government is giving out funds to help the arts! And it sure is weird that they’re funneling money into Tory donors and their friends from school, to include multi-billion pound interests getting more money than entire cities in the North East! Whoever could have predicted this? To discuss it, we brought on friend of the show, actor, and YouTube star Olly Thorn (@PhilosophyTube) to discuss it with Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum).

We did it again. We found an extremely criminal "tech" company -- this time, a notional Tesla competitor that makes trucks. One catch: they don't work! However, to involve the incredible financial chicanery that went into it, we brought on friend of the show Quantian1 (@quantian1) to discuss it with Riley, Milo, Hussein, and Alice.

Stolen Likes Acknowledgement feat. Cory Doctorow

Stolen Likes Acknowledgement feat. Cory Doctorow

October 13, 2020

Blogger, information freedom activist, and sci-fi writer Cory Doctorow joins the gang to discuss the outcome of US anti trust hearings, what's so empty about the idea of "surveillance capitalism, and a start up that was genuinely conceived of by a precocious nine year old.

Also, the UK government rolled out an RPG character maker to get everyone back employed during the pandemic, so this podcast is brought to you by a sports agent, a hotel porter, and three boxers!

Check out Cory's book via his Kickstarter link - we will update these links when the audiobook is released! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/doctorow/attack-surface-audiobook-for-the-third-little-brother-book

October 9, 2020

This week, we're talking Dilbert and Scott Adams. Why? Well, for some reason all five of us liked Dilbert as a kid. Also, it just so happens that friend of the show Aisling McCrea (@ambientGillian) just published an article in Current Affairs about Dilbert's strange appeal. So, let's talk about it. Let's talk about Scott Adams' promise that he can make you no-touch cum. Let's dilb out.

*UNLOCKED* Britainology 2: The Noble Football Hooligan

October 8, 2020

In this unlocked episode of Britainology, Nate and Milo are discussing the 2005 film Green Street Hooligans, in which an American played by Elijah Wood goes to Britain and gets inducted into a football firm, learning a lot about himself along the way. Is it a good movie? No. But does it accurately portray football hooliganism? Also no.

Trump Has Covid and Riley Let Us Run the Podcast Without Him

October 6, 2020

Yes. It happened. We’re laughing. We don’t have any high hopes for a positive impact, but we’re laughing because Trump has covid and it’s not looking good for America’s fattest, oldest, and dumbest president. Also, since Riley was on holiday, he let Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Nate (@inthesedeserts) run this episode themselves. You will probably appreciate Riley’s contributions to the show after hearing this -- but we hope you enjoy!
