No Platforming the Platforms feat. Nick Srnicek

No Platforming the Platforms feat. Nick Srnicek

October 14, 2019

What is platform capitalism? And why is it that Amazon seems to be transitioning from online bookstore to perpetually-expanding defense contractor? This week’s episode features Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum) in discussion with author and academic Nick Srnicek (@n_srnck). Nick’s previous books include “Platform Capitalism” and “Inventing the Future: Postcapitalism and a World without Work.” He joins us to discuss a particularly non-HIPAA compliant app and his own work into the (monopolistic, bad) platforms that dominate our economy today.

What Boris Johnson Thinks Of You feat. Aidan ‘Taco’ Jones

What Boris Johnson Thinks Of You feat. Aidan ‘Taco’ Jones

October 10, 2019

In this preview of this week's bonus episode, our review of Boris Johnson's terrible novel 72 VIRGINS continues — this time featuring Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Alice (@AliceAvizandum) and returning guest Aidan 'Taco' Jones (@AJ_Taco). The story continues to get worse, because the current Prime Minister of the UK wrote racist fanfic for bitter British dads. Brace yourself for the horror!

Young Justin’s Fancy feat. Rob Rousseau

Young Justin’s Fancy feat. Rob Rousseau

October 7, 2019

Canada may be America’s slightly saner neighbour, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t completely bananas in its own right (or, as they say in Quebec, bananes). This week, @robrousseau of the @49thparahell podcast joins Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Nate (@inthesedeserts) to discuss Canadian party politics, the emergence of a new far-right party, why liberal media still wants to platform extremists, and why Justin Trudeau can’t seem to stop donning blackface.

Kafka’s Union Jack feat Ben McLeay

October 3, 2019

Here's a preview of this week's bonus, which features Riley, Milo, and Alice speaking with Ben McLeay (@thomas_violence) of the Boonta Vista (@boontavista) podcast. We discuss a horrible startup called Stockwell (you'll love this one) and a Spectator article with the most profound Brexit manager-calling energy. We almost entitled this episode ACCENTFUTURE because, as you can imagine, it got weird.

Brexit Won’t Let Me See the Kids feat. Tom Kibasi

Brexit Won’t Let Me See the Kids feat. Tom Kibasi

September 30, 2019

Last time we had @IPPR’s Tom Kibasi (@TomKibasi) on the show, he correctly predicted a bunch of things regarding the politics behind Brexit. We needed to consult the oracle once more, and as such we reached out to Tom to come back on and reassure us about the future. Well, sort of. This week, hear Tom discuss the stat we’re in with Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Nate (@inthesedeserts).

MIT Media Lab After Dark (Part 1)

MIT Media Lab After Dark (Part 1)

September 23, 2019

So, what was MIT’s Media Lab actually researching with all that Epstein money? And why is it a Venn diagram of all the worst things in America in the last 40 years? Fronted by a neocon who helped the Contras and the Iraq War, headed by a bitchin’ surfer rave enthusiast tech idiot, and full of people inventing cursed SkyMall products. This week, Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Hussein (@AliceAvizandum) discuss this and so much more.
