    *PREVIEW* Nut Flix Part 2 (feat. This Machine Kills)

    As a continuation of our free episode this week, we brought on Jathan Sadowski (@jathansadowski) and Ed Ongweso Jr (@bigblackjacobin) from This Machine Kills Podcast to discuss the famously sane and healthy workplace culture of Netflix with Riley, Milo, and Alice. Guess what? It's bad. And it's probably coming to your workplace sooner rather than later.

    Nut Flix Part 1 (feat. This Machine Kills)

    It has come to our attention that Netflix has twice the market capitalisation of Boeing. How can this be? Well, it’s a byproduct of the 2008 crisis, an endlessly-expanding network fed by zero-interest loans and charter school zealots who believe that 100 million people can and will watch the next Orc Cop movie. We brought on Jathan Sadowski (@jathansadowski) and Ed Ongweso Jr (@bigblackjacobin) from This Machine Kills Podcast to discuss it with Riley, Milo, Nate, and Alice.

    *PREVIEW* Tom Watson's House of Pain feat. Nish Kumar

    How to explain this? Tom Watson--yes, THAT Tom Watson--has written a 'taut, political thriller' about what if Labour and the Tories came together to make sure NHS patient data was sold to pharmaceutical companies in an ethical way. It's deeply boring in a manner that reflects its author, but it's also something else: an experience. Riley read the whole book and forced Nish Kumar to listen to it along with Milo, Hussein, and Alice. Hope you enjoy!

    *PREVIEW* Britainology 6: Carry On Films (Based Anglovibes)

    We're at it again. Nate and Milo have reviewed the 1968 film CARRY ON UP THE KHYBER for yet another Britainology, and this one is a real laser-focused look at this absurd island. Why is it so horny? Why is everything a double entendre? Is this really the nation that once ruled the waves? You be the judge -- hope you enjoy!

    Midden’s Advente

    We tried to do a full cast episode but Hussein was busy with a ‘real job’. So we got Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum) to discuss a few things. Firstly: Keir Starmer’s desert island discs (yawn), plus a startup that does what you might call a novel riff on the idea of digital nomads. Behold, an episode of nothing but van lore. Van content. You will love it.

    *PREVIEW* Red Jawn feat. Well There's Your Problem

    Quaid... start the podcast and save Mars...
    Justin, Liam, and our very own Alice of Well There’s Your Problem Podcast (on Youtube!) are here to discuss Elon Musk's ludicrous plan to put humanity on spaceships with pizza restaurants in them and ship them off to Mars to live in large greenhouses for reasons of... well... Mars. Where else in the solar system are you going to live? Anyway, like most big stupid tech things - it's a fun story to distract you while SpaceX becomes a (sigh) privatiser of public goods through government contracting. Plus ca change.

My favourite

Oil storage warehouse

wewonthewar ,

Best to avoid this one.

I found the podcast to be rather banal and a bit pretentious. The hosts are mean-spirited, parochial and moralistic, and their approach engendered quite a grating experience.

Terah Karma ,

Just perfectly hilarious while also discussing important issues.

Been a listener for quite a while but this week's episode has prompted me to post a review, as 'homeostasis, but not in a gay way' made me have to pause the pod as I was cry laughing so hard that I couldn't hear it.

Absolutely love all of the cast of this show but I have to say there is a special place in my heart for Milo's accents and associated characters.

Keep up the good work and remember the Trash Future is basically now the Trash Present, so we might as well at least try to laugh about it.
