    Episode 66 – Qanon Memes with Zach Phillips

    Episode 66 – Qanon Memes with Zach Phillips

    We dive into the strange world right-wing memes with our friend Zach Phillips (@floydphill), who we met thanks to Street Fight Radio! The Qanon people correctly identify that they are being f****d over by a ruling global elite, but instead of attributing that to a class politic their framework becomes muddled with a white supremacist and transphobic identity politic. We discuss the growing leftist case for “Epstein didn’t kill himself” sentiment.

    Episode 63 – Plátanito Protest

    Episode 63 – Plátanito Protest

    We originally recorded this episode as a Snackcast, our bonus feed, but liked it too much. Apologies for any munching and crunching, and for the even more causal tone than normal. We discuss working in Chelsea and art fairs as young people, insidious bootstrap mentalities, and the importance of centering marginalized workers. Don’t fall into spectacle mindset, if you must make a banana response please consider the janitorial/service workers that are often forgotten in this discourse (read about their protest in Miami here).

    Episode 62 – Amazon x Hudson Yards OTP

    Episode 62 – Amazon x Hudson Yards OTP

    Warning that this episode is gets into some heavy allegories, we’re very raw in our feelings. That said, we discuss the latest on Amazon NYC, which despite the AOC spin, is NOT A WIN. We also touch on the latest Art Miami Basel controversy spectacle, and the state of gentrification and unionization. Plus we make a bunch of references to Rick and Morty, The Irishman, and Promare. It’s a postmodern nightmare. If you like the podcast and want more, please consider supporting us: https://www.patreon.com/artandlabor. Follow us on twitter and instagram.

    Episode 61 – Truck Life

    Episode 61 – Truck Life

    OK and Lucia discuss burnout, survival gigs, the realities of gender presentation, and universal emotions. How does art influence the ruling class? And how do we examine our proximity to wealth, even if we aren’t collecting a living wage from that proximity.
