*PREVIEW* On the Sanctity of the Pump feat. Patrick Wyman

October 2, 2020

This week we bring back historian, podcaster, and certified big guy Patrick Wyman (@Patrick_Wyman) to discuss the terrible 2013 Michael Bay film Pain & Gain. What can we learn about America's descent into fascism from this film? As it turns out, a hell of a lot.

Plan Line From Outer Space feat. Alexandra Scaggs

Plan Line From Outer Space feat. Alexandra Scaggs

October 1, 2020

Why is the line detached from the material reality of so many people? Why is the line divorced? Why are there so many zombie companies, and why does it seem like the financial movers and shakers are fine with government stimulus to basically non-functional entities? Well, to answer big important finance questions, we have Barrons journalist Alexandra Scaggs (@alexandrascaggs) to investigate, alongside Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum).

*UNLOCKED*A Cheeky Coup with the Lads, Part II (feat. Joe Kassabian)

September 29, 2020

This week's regular episode got delayed because of scheduling, so in the interim we've unlocked a bonus from our Patreon. This is the follow up to the free Part 1 episode, which is available here: https://trashfuturepodcast.podbean.com/e/a-cheeky-coup-with-the-lads-feat-joe-kassabian/

Why did a steely-eyed SAS veteran Etonian weirdo team up with Margaret Thatcher's son to try and launch a coup in Equatorial Guinea in 2004? Mostly because they were bored. In this episode we discuss the consequences of a dumb plot that was foiled by an errant bird and the Zimbabwean customs office.

September 25, 2020

Aw crikey! Australian comedian and Twitch streamer Tom Walker (@tomwalkerisgood) joins the gang to learn all about Gross Family Values. Specifically, how if you’re Bill Gross, one of the world’s most famous bond investors, you’ll react to your acrimonious divorce in 2015 by writing a series of stranger and stranger investment outlooks that focus mainly on how much you hate your imbecilic do-nothing son.

Illiquid Love

Illiquid Love

September 22, 2020

Riley, Milo, Alice, and Nate discuss a German financier who loves financing a lavish lifestyle of yachts, parties, and handstands (?) by selling illiquid bonds. He's a miracle of modern financial markets - a Mozart figure who toured the continent with Helmut Kohl, wowing crowds of onlookers at his ability to be a businessman at the age of 14. Maybe Tom Hulce would play him in a movie? Check it out! We also discuss a start up and some quick news hits.

*PREVIEW* Britainology 4: That ’70s Episode

September 18, 2020

We're back again to explain the eccentricities and fault lines of this truly normal island. This week, Milo and Nate discuss the 1970s in Britain, why everything went downhill, why the decade radicalised the Boomers, and why the TV from that era is.... not good. Hope you enjoy!

Conversations with Frenemies

September 15, 2020

Join the slightly modified cast of Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum) and have your brain gently prodded. Don't worry, it’s all logical!

*PREVIEW* Pret Police On My Back

September 11, 2020

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is a country run by and for landlords. However, the coronavirus crisis has created a problem: if people congregate en masse in offices and places of business, the disease spreads and people die! However, mitigating this requires people to not be in offices or grim city centre restaurants. So, what is the British commentator class saying about it? Die for Pret. That's right folks, you need to die for Pret.

September 4, 2020

Have you heard the story about right-wingers who decide to build their own social media, crowdfunding, or even ridesharing sites? We're talking Gab, Hatreon, and the like. Why do they all fail? Why are they so poorly assembled? And why does this keep happening? In this preview of the bonus episode for the week, the True Chaos Configuration of Riley, Milo, and Alice attempt to decipher this riddle for our times.
