    The Top Site On Facebook Is A Vietnamese Content Farm

    It’s that time again! Facebook has new Widely Viewed Content Report and it’s just as weird and bizarre as the previous one. This time we’re talking about a Vietnamese content farm, relatable Netflix memes, and an impossibly viral Eminem video. This episode also features an exciting cameo!!

    BONUS: Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness

    BONUS: Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness

    WARNING: This episode does contain spoilers.

    This week, as a way to celebrate 100 episodes of The Content Mines, we’re sending out our bonus minisode to all our listeners for free. As long-time listeners of the show know, we love arguing about Marvel movies. So we decided to go see the new Doctor Strange and, boy, do we have lots of thoughts about it. TL;DR - Ryan really liked it at first and now isn’t so sure and Luke wasn’t so sure at first and now he really likes it. Typical.

    Thank you all for the support over the last 100 episodes. It’s a very cool milestone and we couldn’t have gotten there without you. And for those of you we may have lost in the switch from Patreon to Substack, think about subscribing! We send out a little minisode like this each week and you can check all those out by hitting the button below.

    The Biggest Crypto Crash Since The Last One

    The Biggest Crypto Crash Since The Last One

    It’s our 100th episode! That’s crazy! In that time we’ve gone through two names for the show, three versions of our theme song, and, just, so many stories about magicians on Facebook. This week is all about the big crypto crash of May 2022. We have to call it that because there’s a very good chance that there could be more this year. Or this one ends up spiraling so far out of control that the whole thing goes to zero. Let’s talk about what happens when the line stops going up!

    No One’s Watching Piers Morgan’s New Show

    No One’s Watching Piers Morgan’s New Show

    This week Ryan and Luke are recording from the same place! They’ve left their respective Zoom screens to sit in the same room. It’s a whole different vibe. This week’s big topic is Piers Morgan, the British tabloid journalist who tweets absolute garbage all day. He has a new show on a new channel and, according to Luke, the metrics they’re bragging about don’t make any sense. Weird, right?

    The Facebookification Of Netflix

    The Facebookification Of Netflix

    This week we’re talking about Netflix’s very bad week. The stock has plummeted. Employee morale has cratered. Layoffs have started. It seems like a real mess. We look into how years of relying on an algorithm led the company to start making real weird decisions that actually remind us a lot of another company… Facebook. Also, Luke talks about the greatest British art project of maybe all time.

    SHOW NOTES

    “The Netflix Bubble Is Finally Bursting”

    We Watched Tucker Carlson's Documentary Stuff

    We Watched Tucker Carlson's Documentary Stuff

    This week, Luke goes through the various petty beefs that he’s been following on the internet and attempts to explain why he doesn’t really care about them. Though, it kinda sounds like he cares about them. And Ryan spent some time watching Tucker Carlson’s weird — and kinda homoerotic — documentaries on the Fox Nation streaming platform. There was a surprising amount of stuff on there about aliens!

    SHOW NOTES

    The Scott Adams thread

    “Meet the woman behind Libs of TikTok, secretly fueling the right’s outrage machine”

    The horrible plane video

    The @herong thread

Who knew?

Honestly, I was blown away when I heard that 1:6 ratio of mustard and sweet pickle relish added to a standard brownie recipe would make it “better.” Boy, was I wrong! What resulted were THE GREATEST BROWNIES OF ALL TIME.
They were sweet, moist, and just a little zippy! Thanks Content Mines! Gotta go, my Aunt Cecilia is calling me for the recipe!
