Cubefuture / The Galician Candidate feat. Dan Boeckner

October 26, 2021

This week, we have friend of the show, musician, and Bottlemen podcast cohost Dan Boeckner (@DanBoeckner) on to discuss the ascendant Ukrainian-Canadian politician and, uh, affiliate of some deeply frightening ideology, Chrystia Freeland. Do not under any circumstances Google ‘Chrystia Freeland grandfather!’ Anyway, we also learn about some crypto guys buying tungsten cubes and it causes us to dissociate from reality. Hope you enjoy!

October 22, 2021

The gang talks all things rail with with railway engineer and the host of Rail Natter, Gareth Dennis (@GarethDennis). We go back into the history of how Britain's railways "got like that," and how government plans to centralise and revitalise Great British Rail is just a coat of red white and blue paint over (you guessed it!) giving money to scammy start ups.

Concrete Island feat. Daniel Trilling

Concrete Island feat. Daniel Trilling

October 19, 2021

We had journalist Daniel Trilling on the podcast to discuss his research into The Home Office - how it became such a strange, cruel, dysfunctional department, and how it fits into the larger cruel absurdities of immigration policy in western countries. Also, we talk excitedly about Matt Hancock’s new appointment to the UN (…we got the bad news a couple days after recording).

*PREVIEW* Britainology 25: The North feat. Rob Smith and Kaye Wiggins

October 17, 2021

This week, Nate and Milo discuss the North-South divide of England with help from two friends of the show--and FT reporters--Rob Smith (@bondhack) and Kaye Wiggins (@kayewiggins). Rob is from Derby (technically not in the North, but presumed to be) and Kaye is from Southport (definitely in the North). We discuss their experiences in the South, the fact that Liverpool and Essex have so much in common, and a guide for international students in the UK that offers a doctrinal definition of Northern Monkeys vs Southern Fairies. Hope you enjoy!

Rob and Kaye worked on a piece about financial misadventures in the North that you should check out: https://t.co/YaFREWTHbg?amp=1

October 14, 2021

Elon Musk has greenwashed an oil refinery! We speak with fintwit blogger ESGHound about just how this was possible. We also looked into the ongoing issues surrounding Tether. But first, we look at the greatest achievement in British Journalism, as Iain Duncan Smith writes that Britain wouldn't have worked from home during the Blitz.

Where we’re going, you won’t need eyes to see… it’s the Metaverse! And thankfully we've got Jathan Sadowski, friend of the show and cohost of the This Machine Kills Podcast, to explain it further.

*PREVIEW* Grief 2.0

October 10, 2021

This week Riley, Milo, and Alice address a new startup that will--and we are not joking--allow your boss to hire call centre workers to ping you with smartphone notifications when you suffer a personal tragedy. And, of course, a lot more. We also revisit some old friends (Bill Gross, Softbank) and a plan for the Tories to send in old army men to "de-woke" the NHS.

A SpyCop in Every Home feat. Paris Marx

October 5, 2021

This week, Riley, Milo, and Alice speak with Paris Marx (@parismarx) of the Tech Won’t Save Us podcast about Britain’s desire for a call-the-cops-on-your-neighbours hotline, a new tech development that uses (very reliable, surely) facial recognition to call the cops on you, and much more.

Yet again, Riley read a piece of literature nobody else would touch, in order to inflict it on his friends. We read Starmer's Vichy France pamphlet about how he's bounced back and he's a serious politician now, because he has written a 11,500 word essay of inadequate plans.
