    Mr. Steube Goes to Washington

    This week features the full cast of Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum) on the topic of recent tech CEOs testifying in front of the U.S. House of Representatives. As you would expect, the Democrats asked anodyne questions about being slightly nicer capitalists and the Republicans asked why their emails are going to spam. It’s a brilliant foray into the world of Big Guys and QAnon running for Congress. You’ll love.
     
    Riley mentions the Clown Motel thing but I didn’t feel like actually making you listen to it at the end of the episode, so get it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QBJaTtF7XI

    *PREVIEW* Britainology 2: The Noble Football Hooligan

    This week, Nate and Milo are discussing the 2005 film Green Street Hooligans, in which an American played by Elijah Wood goes to Britain and gets inducted into a football firm, learning a lot about himself along the way. Is it a good movie? No. But does it accurately portray football hooliganism? Also no.

    Our theme song for this series is from the 'Visit to Primrose Hill Extended Version' of the 1993 Blur song 'For Tomorrow,' which Nate picked because it was formative in teaching him various aspects of London geography and it's premium old millennial / young gen xer nostalgia bait.

    Precision Strikes from the Shorty Air Force feat. Quantian1

    Precision Strikes from the Shorty Air Force feat. Quantian1

    This week, we've got Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum) with special guest Q (@quantian1), an institutional investor and observer of the big cruel injury factory known as Tesla. We talk about how Tesla cooks its books via emissions credits, why Elon Musk is the way he is, and why the Robin Hood app is basically a dumb money index for investors with billions more resources than you have.

    *PREVIEW* Fancy Art for Fancy Lads feat. Josie Long

    This week's bonus involves the elitism of the art world, Josie Long's (@JosieLong) commentary on the way in which the entire world is gatekept by the rich, and the second segment features a guy calling his billionaire friend for advice about the state of the world. The advice, as you might expect, is normal as hell.

    Le Gavroche de Wyatt Koch

    Le Gavroche de Wyatt Koch

    This week, we've got Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum) discussing the phenomenon of "dark kitchens," remote cooking sites for restaurants to cater to delivery-only services. Do they have bad conditions and almost zero labour protections? How'd you guess? We also discuss the fate of a Los Angeles jam restaurant called Squirrel, which tried its hand at a self-run dark kitchen that involve inch upon inch of mould. As we learn in this episode, the only thing that made it illegal was that they didn't have a VC-funded startup handling all of the unethical practices for them.

For Now Our Disdain For Sherlock is Nameless

In episode about k-punk, Riley's scatalogical, inarticulate disdain for Sherlock is a little grating. We get the point about how middle-class and stultifyingly safe a show it truly is. Same for bringing up Coldplay several times.

But then... once he gets onto his passion for PC Music, this is where the podcast is at its very best. Riley adopts a truly Mark Fisher-like (Fisherian? Fisherological?) articulation towards it. He is passionate, scholarly and really sells the few snippets he plays. (When the music began, I nearly puked. By the time Riley had voiced his enthusiasm about it, I was checking out full tracks and heading to the label website. Truly).

Mark Fisher was a decent human and a theorist of perhaps hidden magnitude. Many podcasts have attempted to summarise the invaluable but tragically finite work he produced. Riley's k-punk episode is one of the better shows to tackle such an imposing task, and Riley's articulation and passion about the culture he deems worthy of discussing shows that someone out there was listening to Fisher all along, and plans to continue carrying the flame.
