In John McDonnell’s Navy feat. Grace Blakeley

In John McDonnell’s Navy feat. Grace Blakeley

September 16, 2019

Finance-driven growth: It’s not good, folks! This week, Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Hussein (@HKesvani) join special guest Grace Blakely (@graceblakeley) to discuss the financialisation of the past 40 years and the post-2008 reckoning that we’re cursed to live through — which is the topic of Grace’s new book ‘Stolen: How to Save the World from Financialisation.’ We also discuss an amazing hit piece in the British tabloids that wants you to believe the Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell has a private navy at his cabin in Norfolk.

You can buy Grace’s book from the publisher here: https://repeaterbooks.com/product/stolen-how-to-save-the-world-from-financialisation/ — and if you buy it from Repeater Books you get a free e-book version as well.

Absolute Boy in Da Corner feat. Joana Ramiro

Absolute Boy in Da Corner feat. Joana Ramiro

September 9, 2019

Something of a sleepy week in British politics, a time in which nothing happened of any real significance. This episode features (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum) discussing these banal developments with London-based journalist (and host of Red Hacks podcast) Joana Ramiro (@joanaramirouk). Parliament didn’t get prorogued, the government didn’t suffer landmark defeats, and Low Tax Chloe didn’t make some of the worst memes in human history. We also also talk about the weird incel logic behind Apple's Siri. It’s a great, normal time to be a resident of this island, folks!

We all have Epstein Brain, or at least Riley, Milo, and Alice do. But first, this episode covers our reflections on London and which bits of it suck, a review of the Duke of Westminster's app that lets council tenants decide how they want to get kicked out, then finally we realise everyone's favourite prince couldn't possibly be involved in Epstein shit! He said so!

Riley’s Commie Book Club: Steal as Much as You Can by Nathalie Olah

Riley’s Commie Book Club: Steal as Much as You Can by Nathalie Olah

September 5, 2019
This month's CBC features Riley in conversation with Nathalie Olah, the author of 'Steal as Much as You Can: How to win the culture wars in an age of austerity' forthcoming from Repeater Books. It's a work that tackles the supposed “golden age” of the New Labour era and the subsequent lost decade of austerity, exploring the myths and realities of life for young people working in the arts, media and culture industries today.

What If Your House Was the Cops?

What If Your House Was the Cops?

September 2, 2019

It’s a truly classic TF lineup this week with Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum) discussing Dominic Cummings supposed genius, but mostly recoiling in horror at an app that’s going to record everything that goes on inside your house, scan your face for fear, and grass you out to the cops. It’s not good!

August 29, 2019

It's another lovely week in the British summer of, uh, impending fascism? On this week’s bonus, Riley, Hussein, and Alice are in discussion with writer and journalist Kieran Yates (@kieran_yates) on the topic of terrible internships, terrible models of home ownership, and much more. Did you know that Hussein has Trashfuture on his CV? Maybe everyone should put it on their CV, even the listeners. You’ll love it, folks!

Dad War feat. Francis Horton

Dad War feat. Francis Horton

August 26, 2019

Why is it that British dads all want to go to war? Why is it that, despite having grown up during a period of unparalleled peace and stability, people over 50 want to relive Dunkirk and embrace the Blitz Spirit? Maybe because they’re all deeply bored and lazy people. To discuss this (and much more), we’ve brought on Francis Horton (@ArmyStrang), cohost of What a Hell of a Way to Die (with our own Nate (@inthesedeserts)). Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum) also discuss the Amazon being on fire and a terrible, terrible NY Post article about monogamy. You will love it.

August 22, 2019

We took Trashfuture on the road, opening up the start of of the Birmingham Transformed festival. The cast was Riley, Hussein, Nate, and returning guest Soweto Kinch (@sowetokinch). We talked about a high-tech eugenics platform and a news site that might as well be the QAnon Onion. You'll love it as much as we did, friends.

Live. Laugh. Love. There Is No God.

August 19, 2019

What a whirlwind week it’s been. For starters, Jeremy Corbyn gave the Lib Dems and CUK/TIGs an offer they would normally not be able to refuse, but instead refused because (as we knew all along) they hate mild social democracy more than they hate Brexit, despite being the “Stop Brexit Jeremy” parties. We discuss this, as well as WeWork’s recent initial public offering. Riley (@raaleh) dug up their S-1 filing and talks it over with Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum). We live in a great economy, and as such this episode is extremely positive.
