    A truly next-level Princely Persian Mayday PlaguePod as we bring together Omnicide author Jason Bahbak Mohaghegh and our favourite Geistig Lego™ AGI engineer Reza Negarestani. Lisa Blanning joins us with a special selection of COVID tracks, Amy Ireland jacks in from the Pandemonium Matrix to discuss viral demonology, and we talk coronamania and oil futures, and find out what our guests’ favourite Britney tracks are. With a taste of a poison paradise, could this be the night that someone—while being considerate to their housemates—finally defeats CoronaQuest…?

    Plaguepod Live Day 34

    PlaguePod Live: Cope Edition. What's going on? It's been over a month in lockdown, the epistemological conundrum of coronavirus has been solved (no one knows anything) and we are bored, deranged, chronically anxious, and have no idea what to talk about. But there is fresh junglism, there is CoronaQuest, and there are guests: Enrico Monacelli and Laura Tripaldi report back from Italy, Shaun Lewin continues the search for rare jaffa cakes and COVID/corvid crossovers, and Edinburgh's finest Proc Fiskal brings some tunes and lockdown updates from the Heart of Lothian.
