    Episode 21: ELLIOT RODGER PLAYS HIMSELF (Mike Crumplar, Busta, Keller, LILINETERNET)

    Featuring Washington D.C.-based writer/editor MIKE CRUMPLAR, whose work focuses on radicalization in America and the systemic drivers of incel culture. This January, Mike published the first segment of a project that looks at the autobiographical writings of Isla Vista spree shooter Elliot Rodger. His Framework takes Elliot not as author, but as subject—a protagonist trapped in his own novel as an unwitting byproduct of American late-capitalism.

    Errata:
    1. Lascaux is thought to have been painted between 18,000 - 15,000 BC (not 25,000 BC) and was discovered in 1940 (not 1930s)
    2. Baltimore schools need an estimated $2.6 billion for basic repairs. 2. There are 10s of millions (not 100s of millions) in funding that have been earmarked for the school system and then misallocated.
