    TTO 60: Face/Off (DeepFakes)

    TTO 60: Face/Off (DeepFakes)

    The future is grim, folks. "Deepfaking" tech is here, and horny nerds are using it for evil deeds. But deepfakes go much deeper than that. On top of its its porn applications, we talk Hollywood, advertising, jobs and politics, and then in general ramble about AI and machine learning, during which, Caleb has an existential crisis. We end the episode with some sad farewells.Turn That Off! is a podcast that examines the spectacle of popular culture, exploring the bizarre relationship between humans and the (often terrible) media we consume. Please note that we regularly explore unsavory corners of the internet, and don't condone everything we discuss.

    TTO 59: Down With The Clown (Juggalos)

    TTO 59: Down With The Clown (Juggalos)

    Juggalos: unjustly maligned, or simply misunderstood? The subculture that started from the streets of Detroit is a hotly contested subject. Juggalos were estimated to have over a million members at their apex, and was even classified as a gang by the FBI. But their own members say they're more of a support group who share a common love of the band Insane Clown Posse. Join TTO as we explore the fandom, and ask the question: what is a juggalo?

    BONUS: TTO 58: The Chad Joker

    BONUS: TTO 58: The Chad Joker

    DC's Joker was released this week to simultaneously thunderous uproar and acclaim. Early critics boasted the movie's brilliance, giving it an eight minute standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival. Audiences gave it a score of 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. However, there also seems to be a class of (often deeply cynical) pundits and critics who found the movie problematic, culturally tone deaf, and even dangerous, citing the mass shootings in Aurora and recent acts of Incel violence. Many critics vowed to not see the movie, despite writing about it at length. So, which is it? Is the film a misunderstood masterpiece, hamfisted Todd Phillips bro slop that stands on the shoulders of giants, or something else entirely? Shea, Kasey, and Caleb remote in for a special bonus episode discussing the movie and the hubris surrounding it.
