This week's bonus features a skeleton crew of Riley, Alice, and Hussein on a few topics that deeply moved us. Well, one at least: it sounds like SoftBank's Vision Fund is going to get a lot less weird, which means less content for us. But we can still reflect on the good times!

Exiting the Mind-Palace feat. Leslie Lee

Exiting the Mind-Palace feat. Leslie Lee

February 17, 2020

This week, we’ve stepped away a bit from the usual slate of brain-destroying British politics and have instead decided to review the joint BBC/Netflix special Dracula. It’s bad, but it’s bad in such particularly eyeball-crossing ways that we needed expert advice. So, this episode features Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Alice @AliceAvizandum in conversation with Leslie Lee (@leslieleeiii) of the Struggle Session podcast. We all watched this terrible series so you don’t have to.

February 13, 2020

Did you hear about the app that wants to 3D model your face to make sure you're a girl? It's called Giggle and we do not approve of it. In this preview of this week's bonus episode, Riley, Hussein, Alice, and artist Matt Lubchansky (@lubchansky) also discuss Mayor Pete, the US democratic primary, and much more. We thought about calling this episode 'ISIS for Girls' but Alice got to choose the title after she completely evaporated Riley's brain by reading test copy from Pete Buttigieg's website. Don't worry -- we recorded it all.

Move Fast and Break Democracy feat. Vincent Bevins

Move Fast and Break Democracy feat. Vincent Bevins

February 10, 2020

What happens when the DNC is an ouroboros of grifting fail-children? What happens when you try to improve voting with an app, and the app can’t stop crashing? In this week’s episode, Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice @AliceAvizandum join journalist Vincent Bevins (@Vinncent) to discuss the Iowa Democratic Caucus disaster, or how to not make people trust an election result. Vincent has covered elections in 15 countries and has some thoughts on why American exceptionalism makes America terrible at the basic concept of representative democracy.

Vincent has a book coming out called “The Jakarta Method” that covers the persecution and mass killing of leftists during the Cold War. You can pre-order it here, and you definitely should: https://www.hachettebookgroup.com/titles/vincent-bevins/the-jakarta-method/9781541742406/?lens=publicaffairs

*FUNDRAISING ALERT* In this episode, Riley mentions a fundraiser for a migrant assistance organisation in the US called Al Otro Lado. That fundraiser is complete, but if you have money to spare they can use the surplus for other cases of children escaping literal slavery.

*PREVIEW* Thuggee Life: TF Reviews Jacob Rees-Mogg’s Book (feat. Nish Kumar)

February 6, 2020

This week, we're talking Jacob Rees-Mogg's history: his book 'The Victorians' might be the single worst collection of words that Riley's ever subjected himself to (so far), and we've brought on friend of the show Nish Kumar (@mrnishkumar) to discuss it. You might even call it a 'Horrible History,' but that would be anti-British drivel!

We’re back in the saddle for another episode of delightful modern existence. The full cast of Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice @AliceAvizandum discuss a $100m-valued emoji service, the sudden disappearance of pro-EU groups post-Brexit, a Rafael Behr classic column from 2009, and an extended riff about the weird Xbox tween boy simulator called--and we are not joking--'Project Milo.'

January 27, 2020

There’s a general election coming up in Ireland, and rather than just having us attempt our worst Irish accents, we’ve brought on comedy writer Michael Fry (@bigdirtyfry) to discuss it with Riley (@raaleh), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice @AliceAvizandum. However, we have to discuss a haunted water cooler app and an op-ed about market-based solutions for our incipient societal meltdown. You will enjoy this, we promise. Do not ask us to explain the title.

January 20, 2020

If you live in a city (or use the internet at all), you've seen ads for supposedly high-quality mattresses like Casper or Eve. They don't make mattresses—they just market them—and they're losing money hand over fist. In this week's episode, Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), Nate (@inthesedeserts), Alice (@AliceAvizandum) and special guest Tristan Cross (@tristandross) discuss this extremely durable business model — and a close-read review of some of the bonkers new Tory MPs. You will love it.
