    The Taking of Britain 123 ft. Gareth Dennis

    The Taking of Britain 123 ft. Gareth Dennis

    Rail Natter's Gareth Dennis joins the gang to discuss the RMT's strike action. We look at what made striking necessary, what striking does for everyone (not just the strikers!), and - of course - we run down the Mick Lynch daytime TV hit list.

    Gareth mentions a strike fund in the episode, which you can access here: https://www.rmt.org.uk/about/national-dispute-fund/

    *PREVIEW* Britainology 39: The Royals feat. Dr Eleanor Janega

    This month we've spoken with friend of the show and knower of medieval history Dr Eleanor Janega (@GoingMedieval) on the topic of the British monarchy. Not just the current state of affairs (although we do get into that), but also the unbroken lineage all the way back to 1066. Why is it that we've simply put up with it for so long?

    *PREVIEW* A Series of Tubes ft. Ben Tarnoff

    The gang talks to Ben Tarnoff about his book “Internet for the People,” which looks at the present miserable state of the internet “as public utility,” and how it can be made better. But first, we look at a startup back from the dead, think about the on-purpose recession that the global north is about to tip into and (thinking about other recessions), what we can expect, and how the IMF created political monsters it can no longer control.

    Cryptocurrency 1929-2008 Speedrun (Framecount in Video)

    Cryptocurrency 1929-2008 Speedrun (Framecount in Video)

    This week, Riley, Milo, Nate, and Alice react to new developments from UK politics (it’s wedge week!) and the crypto world, where discussions are taking place to encourage central banks to help unwind stablecoins. What does that mean? Well, it means free money, more scamming, and no time spent on explaining the actual use case–there isn’t one.

    As mentioned in the show notes, there’s a fundraiser for the 9 people arrested during a recent Stop Deportations action in Uxbridge. Please contribute here if you can! https://www.gofundme.com/f/support-stop-deportations

    *PREVIEW* Wirecard: The Shaved Poodle Affair feat. Dan McCrum

    This week, Riley, Milo, and Alice speak with FT reporter and author Dan McCrum (@FD) about his forthcoming book 'Money Men: A Hot Startup, a Billion Dollar Fraud, a Fight for the Truth.' It is of course about Wirecard, and it's got some amazing details that we simply lose our minds about as Dan recounts them. Hope you enjoy!

    Nate Will Be Synonymous with Failure

    Nate Will Be Synonymous with Failure

    Riley is out this week, and in his stead we’ve convened a special episode of Trashfuture featuring Milo, Hussein, Nate, and Alice on the topic of a failing ‘AI’ startup called Nate. Yes, it’s called Nate. And it’s a pure, concentrated example of ‘what if your robot was just a guy.’

    We draw heavily from Malique Morris’s article from The Information, and you should read it https://www.theinformation.com/articles/shaky-tech-and-cash-burning-giveaways-ai-shopping-startup-shows-excesses-of-funding-boom and also follow him on twitter at @luxeoflique

I listen to this a lot and it’s really interesting. A lot of takes that I’m not hearing anywhere else.
