John Bull’s Other Occupation feat. Arron Merat

John Bull’s Other Occupation feat. Arron Merat

August 24, 2021

Alice and Riley speak with returning guest, journalist Arron Merat (@a_merat), reflecting on twenty years of cruelty and institutional failure on the part of the British state and its bloody imperial adventure in Afghanistan. We look deeper into the domestic pressures, economic and psychological, that made this all happen, and look at some of the attempts to actively forget what we have been doing

*PREVIEW* Britainology 21: Landfill Indie feat. Fred Macpherson and Oscar Rickett

August 21, 2021

This week we explore the phenomenon of 2000s Indie Rock (and the endless succession of bands that seemed to go nowhere) with two long-suffering veterans of the scene: Fred Macpherson (of the bands Spector, Les Incompétents, and and Ox.Eagle.Lion.Man) and music journalist Oscar Rickett. It's a lot of bad memories but it wouldn't be Britainology if we didn't dredge them up!

August 19, 2021

It's time for episode 5 of the series we're un-affectionately calling Lib Dem Children of Men. That's right, it's Russell T Davies' populism dystopia 'Years & Years,' and we've brought on Devon from Da Youtube Zone and the Kill James Bond podcast to discuss.

A MILF to End Austerity feat. Alex Yablon

A MILF to End Austerity feat. Alex Yablon

August 17, 2021

This week, Nate, Milo, Alice, and Hussein speak with journalist Alex Yablon (@alexyablon) about a US program in 2020 where the Federal Reserve leant money to municipalities--and the possibility of cutting out market-based austerity, if we want it. We also check in on Lordstown Motors and read a deeply insane ‘philosophy’ piece about why we should welcome a meteor.

*PREVIEW* The Neoliberal Cinematic Universe feat. Noah Suarez-Sikes

August 13, 2021

This week, we've brought on Noah Suarez-Sikes (@noahpasaran) from the DSA Los Angeles-Hollywood Labor group. We discuss unionisation drives in Hollywood, why capital concentration is making films worse, the conditions for non-star workers in the US film industry, and an app that's going to redefine your biological age. It is a good time!

This week, Riley, Milo, Alice, and Hussein join special guest Alex Press (@alexnpress) of Jacobin magazine and the Primer podcast (@primerpod) about the Stratford Orb, another union-busting app, and the news that the Amazon union election has to do a re-run (and the Teamsters are getting involved!).

*PREVIEW* New Cumbernauld Man feat. Dan Boeckner

August 5, 2021

We brought on Dan Boeckner, musician from the bands Wolf Parade and Operators, podcaster with Riley from the show Bottlemen, to discuss a 1977 spy thriller called 'Cumbernauld HIT' set in Cumbernauld, Scotland. Except it was funded by the local council to promote Cumbernauld, using the film as a promo for the New Town and all its drab concrete labyrinth glory. Here is the spirit of Labourism, a new model community where society is building a new man who, crucially, does not jack off.

The Wicker Mound feat. James Meadway

The Wicker Mound feat. James Meadway

August 3, 2021
A great happening has come to London. A marker of power has arisen. Fell deeds awake as we enter the era of the Mound.
 
Also, James Meadway (@meadwaj) returns to discuss the fading of the neoliberal paradigm and it’s replacement with something different and worse.

*PREVIEW* Britainology 20: London Finance Geezers feat. Matt Edwards

*PREVIEW* Britainology 20: London Finance Geezers feat. Matt Edwards

July 31, 2021

This is perhaps something of a combination of Britainology and a regular TF episode in which we've brought on Matt Edwards, Milo's (much) older brother, who worked as a foreign exchange trader in London brokerages in the 1990s. We learn about the geezer-rific work environment of a bunch of guys yelling into a phone about numbers, some of the antics they got up to, what's changed since, and--perhaps on a more serious note--Matt's personal experience with what happened in Greece post-2008, a country he's worked in extensively. We very much hope you enjoy this.

The full episode is available on Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/54260186

We've also unlocked a $10 tier Britainology from February to the $5 tier. Learn all about pebbledash and cursed British architecture in our discussion with India Block here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/48129271

*UNLOCKED* Britainology 6: Carry On Films (Based Anglovibes)

*UNLOCKED* Britainology 6: Carry On Films (Based Anglovibes)

July 31, 2021

We're at it again. Nate and Milo have reviewed the 1968 film CARRY ON UP THE KHYBER for yet another Britainology, and this one is a real laser-focused look at this absurd island. Why is it so horny? Why is everything a double entendre? Is this really the nation that once ruled the waves? You be the judge -- hope you enjoy!

If you want more Britainology, you can get 2 episodes a month on the $10 tier, or one episode a month on the $5 tier. Sign up on Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/trashfuture
