*PREVIEW* This Preview Brought To You By The Letter B feat. Soweto Kinch

January 16, 2020

And on the pedestal, these words appear: 'bung a bob for Big Ben to bong for Brexit.' This accursed phrase has melted our brains, and you get to hear it happen in real time on a preview of this week's episode. It's a mass gathering of Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Nate (@inthesedeserts), Alice (@AliceAvizandum) Olga (@rocknrolga), and special guest Soweto Kinch (@sowetokinch)... and things get weird. We hope you'll love this episode as much as we hate being alive after reading the material that went in to it.

At the Zagros Mountains of Madness feat. Séamus Malekafzali

January 13, 2020

This week, we’re talking Iran escalation and Donald Trump’s genius strategy of galvanizing a nation, but there’s a little more nuance than normal. So, Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice @AliceAvizandum join special guest Séamus Malekafzali (@Seamus_Malek), who’s a writer and analyst working in Beirut. This one will stimulate the logic center of your brain more than a thousand Ben Shapiro podcasts. Hope you enjoy!

It's the chaos configuration of Riley, Milo, and Alice on the preview of this week's bonus episode (Nate and Hussein were busy being boring lames). We're talking about the assassination of Qassem Soleimani and the tragic hilariousness of America's constant self-sabotage when it tries to do imperialism. We also talk about yams in Vancouver for some reason. Guess what: it's not good, folks!

The Immortal Science of Marxist Leninist Cakes-and-Aleism feat. Kimberly McIntosh

The Immortal Science of Marxist Leninist Cakes-and-Aleism feat. Kimberly McIntosh

January 6, 2020

Since the election result, you’ve heard all sorts of cries for Labour to get more racist. To discuss her recent article about why this is a terrible idea, writer and researcher Kimberly McIntosh (@mcintosh_kim) joins Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice @AliceAvizandum. What are ‘Labour heartlands’? Why is class in Britain apparently tied to what you or your parents were doing in the 1970s? And why does London not count as working-class (unless you’re a whippet in a flat cap)?

Please enjoy a preview of our first episode of 2020, as we’ve got a real treat for all of the Patreon subscribers. We’ve brought on Theo Pengelly (@AynRandy) of Boonta Vista (@boontavista) to discuss Andrew Lillico’s demented plan to terraform Mars. That is not a typo. Hope you enjoy!

*UNLOCKED* Intelligence 3.0 feat. Felix Biederman

December 30, 2019

Back in October, we did a deep dive into the work of the king of the airport books: Malcolm Gladwell. Riley, Milo, and Alice join Felix Biederman (@ByYourLogic) of Chapo Trap House (@chapotraphouse) to discuss the horror and the banality of the truest of thinkers. This was previously only available to our Patreon subscribers, but we figured everyone needed a pick-me-up given the state of Britain at the end of 2019.

PREVIEW: Ocean’s Apprenticeship feat. Devon

December 29, 2019

In a preview of this week's bonus, we’re reviewing a startup called WhiteHat, digesting a terrible Giles Coren wankfest about Oxford admissions, and—most importantly—speaking to friend of the show and biology teacher Devon (@Devon_OnEarth) about the state-mandated ‘British Values’ education. Spoiler alert: it’s inchoate and weird!

MIT Media Lab After Dark Part 3: We Just Make Boxes here feat. Sarah Taber

December 23, 2019

You’re well accustomed to us just sort of riffing as we go along, but this week we speak with crop scientist Sarah Taber (@SarahTaber_bww) on the topic of the MIT Media Lab and their supposedly brilliant ‘food computer.’ Sarah joins Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Alice @AliceAvizandum as we discuss in even more detail why tech lords’ conception of the world’s problems are just, well, weirdly off the mark!

PREVIEW: Confedera-CIA of Dunces

December 20, 2019

Look, maybe we just needed a break. Maybe there's nothing particularly good to talk about politically in this moment of elected dictatorship. However, in this preview of the week's bonus, we talk about trash culture and the cult of super-smart drones, and as such we've reviewed the 2008 Ridley Scott film 'Body of Lies,' which is bad. Why does Leo DiCaprio dress like a podcaster? Why are there basically zero Arab actors in major roles in this film? Why is Russell Crowe such a weird Foghorn Leghorn ass guy? Listen to hear our takes on this, and much more.

December 18, 2019

So, we got owned. Labour got wiped out in the election, and now begins a sombre and introspective season 2 of Trashfuture in which we discuss where to go from here. Please listen to the solemn voices of Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), Nate (@inthesedeserts) and Alice @AliceAvizandum as we commiserate and try to laugh as much as humanly possible. Thank you all so much to those of you who helped campaign and fight it out.
