After surviving the psychic gulag of watching all eight Fast & Furious movies, we jumped ship out of that frying pan into the fire of the 2020 Democratic National Convention and said our piece. Come for the livid reactions from yours truly, stay for the markedly better explanations from Briahna Joy Gray.

Heat Death of the Universe is an End-Times-inspired podcast about a wide range of subjects falling under the enormous Janus-faced purview of cultural and political commentary. Hosted by two long-time expatriated US citizens living in South Korea, mainly Seoul.
Joshua Nomen-Mutatio currently teaches liberal arts to precocious child geniuses in the infamous Gangnam district, enjoys Latin-based pseudonyms (not really, just the one), makes percussive patterns with Gorymurgy, and lives on a high elevation hill in the oldest village in Seoul.
JD Newland teaches little humans in a less bourgeois area than Gangnam, but it’s bourgie enough. He enjoys the finest things in life such as scouring the Internet, endlessly scrolling on a plethora of devices, and consumption of all sorts. He lives at the base of Namsan, a mountain in Seoul and home to the city’s most famous tower.
