July 9, 2022

For this month's first Britainology, Milo subjected Nate to the early-2000s hit sketch comedy show 'Little Britain,' the brainchild of Matt Lucas and David Walliams. Has it aged well? No. But was it at least funny? Also no. Prepare your body for the literal worst bit of content we may have faced yet.

Far From The Gurning Crowd

Far From The Gurning Crowd

July 5, 2022

We continue to follow the incipient strike wave in Britain now spreading to other industries, and think about how the veil between ourselves and a more liveable, dignified existence is once again at its thinnest. We also discuss Labour’s manifest inability to rise to the moment… and then we delve into the mountains of madness with an article about how Glastonbury should be replaced with a Ukrainian army recruitment centre.

The Taking of Britain 123 ft. Gareth Dennis

June 28, 2022

Rail Natter's Gareth Dennis joins the gang to discuss the RMT's strike action. We look at what made striking necessary, what striking does for everyone (not just the strikers!), and - of course - we run down the Mick Lynch daytime TV hit list.

Gareth mentions a strike fund in the episode, which you can access here: https://www.rmt.org.uk/about/national-dispute-fund/

*PREVIEW* Britainology 39: The Royals feat. Dr Eleanor Janega

June 25, 2022

This month we've spoken with friend of the show and knower of medieval history Dr Eleanor Janega (@GoingMedieval) on the topic of the British monarchy. Not just the current state of affairs (although we do get into that), but also the unbroken lineage all the way back to 1066. Why is it that we've simply put up with it for so long?

*PREVIEW* A Series of Tubes ft. Ben Tarnoff

June 24, 2022

The gang talks to Ben Tarnoff about his book “Internet for the People,” which looks at the present miserable state of the internet “as public utility,” and how it can be made better. But first, we look at a startup back from the dead, think about the on-purpose recession that the global north is about to tip into and (thinking about other recessions), what we can expect, and how the IMF created political monsters it can no longer control.

Cryptocurrency 1929-2008 Speedrun (Framecount in Video)

June 21, 2022

This week, Riley, Milo, Nate, and Alice react to new developments from UK politics (it’s wedge week!) and the crypto world, where discussions are taking place to encourage central banks to help unwind stablecoins. What does that mean? Well, it means free money, more scamming, and no time spent on explaining the actual use case–there isn’t one.

As mentioned in the show notes, there’s a fundraiser for the 9 people arrested during a recent Stop Deportations action in Uxbridge. Please contribute here if you can! https://www.gofundme.com/f/support-stop-deportations
