Class is in session! Welcome to Commune College, where Proxy, Keeble, & Hyperlink take turns walking up to the front of the class and teaching each other the things they know things about. A proud member of the Mastodon Podcast Network.
Episode 71 - LaserDisc (w/ Proxy)
It's time for some obscure technology, and Proxy's here to delivery the information straight (or as straight as she can muster) to your earspace! This time, she's bringing up the surprisingly revolutionary format of LaserDisc -- from its origins, to its innovations, to its ultimate failure.

Episode 70: Cargo Shorts (w/ Keeble)
Why are cargo shorts so uniquely loathed in modern fashion discourse? In today's Commune College, Keeble attempts to answer that question by weaving a tale that touches on Abercrombie & Fitch, Jean Baudrillard, and a 300 page dissertation.

Episode 69: Cincinnati's Failed Subway System w/ Hyperlink
This week on Commune College, Hyperlink recounts the history of Cincinnati's failed subway system, whose derelict tunnels still sit unused beneath the city to this very day. Also, literally everyone they mention in the story has a completely silly name.
