141 – Biden’s Poppers Habit Equals Imminent Nuclear Winter

Teachers must side-hustle to survive. More budgetary sadism from the Grand American Experiment. SARS-CoV-2 manages to create millions of orphans despite no longer and/or never existing. Joseph Robinette Biden may set off nuclear annihilation through typical senile outbursts stutters gaffes etc. South Korean labor unions invoke Squid Game while organizing a general strike. The Wizard of Oz is an allegory for something you've likely never heard about. Big dumb corporations get pathetic.

139 – Mark Linkous Explains It All

Things get loose and levity reigns (mostly) while discussing things that don't cast a shadow. Standard Stateside corruption. Jason tests Josh's miserable understanding of the FBI's Guide to Internet Slang. World War III still can't be ignored no matter how much we may like to (sudden remembrance /slash/ recommendation: “Human Moments in World War III” a short story by Don DeLillo). Mike Tyson sells ear-shaped THC candies now. The Earth's burning at both poles. A man in Japan is making a living by doing actively doing nothing. Plentiful tangents abound.

138 – Everything’s Amazon Now Except the Amazon

Well fuck it. We just talked about the near universal denial of the germ theory of disease, the 70 degree temperature increase in eastern Antarctica, and mostly just a documentary about the Reign of Bezos.

137 – An Earful of My Weird Escapism on My Obituary Birthday

Biden could single-handedly expand Medicare to everyone (and of course he won't). Dilyana Gaytandzhieva's rigorous and detailed reporting on US bioweapons labs staged around the globe finally gets some vindication. Ukrainian Nazism is not to be dismissed as insignificant. Larry Summers and Stephen Colbert act like assholes on TV. The current state of sanctions, global economy, etc. One of us, guess who, feels miserable about everything (hint: It very well may be both of us).

136 – The Dark (K)night of the Soul of the Inception of the Nation

One of us saw The Batman. The other doesn't care at all about spoilers. We talk all, or many, things Caped Crusader and discuss multiple socio-political interpretations of the various incarnations of the property, as well as some of the more surface level elements of these chiropteran narratives. But mostly we just shoot the shit, to be honest, I think. Beware all ye who dare tread: COPIOUS SPOILERS AND EVEN MORE COPIOUS DIGRESSIONS ABOUND.

135 – The New Multipolarity’s Rolling Up and Down Nancy Pelosi’s Spasmodic Spinal Column

We're back and once again recording in the evening. Got a little loose and digressive. Nancy Pelosi’s remote controlled corpse malfunctioning on live TV right behind Joe Biden while he slurred every fourth word due to a childhood stutter that comes and goes when a convenient explanation is needed. We talk about not talking about Russia-Ukraine (then later can't help but talk about it a bit). Condi Rice tries to get her own damn self put on trial for crimes against humanity. Josh quizzes Jason on “Who Said It: Trump or Biden?” in between other segments.  A Supposedly Fun Thing I Never NOT Do Again: some Wall Street douche decides to live on cruise ships for two decades and counting. (Cruising is real.)  SNL is still a cultural barometer? Man charged 13k for donating his kidney. NFT crypto bros have made monetary earnings a nihilistic ritual now. Elon Musk dares labor unions to even fucking try to undermine his spoiled brat kingdom.

134 – Speculatory Fog of War

Russo-NATO relations. Multipolar v. Unipolar global power arrangements. Elon Musk tries (and fails) to buy some kid's Twitter account for $5000. Tesla factories now racially segregated. Neuralynk's torture chambers. AI insurance claims adjusters, nuclear weapons operators, and sex dolls—lotsa sex dolls. People stop getting and dying from SARS-CoV-2 if nobody's counting anymore—the UK and US get this practice trending.

133 – Praise the Propaganda and Pass the Ammunition

Update on Steven Donziger's incarceration. A rightwing ideologue who helped prosecute Donziger on behalf of Chevron is now being appointed by Biden to be a judge on a federal circuit court. A simple country billionaire doesn't know what all the fuss is about with wealth and resources being concentrated in the hands of a few people. The Grayzone has lost an amazing reporter in Benjamin Norton (who is carrying on with a new project called Multipolarista), likely due to disagreements about the pandemic. Coronavirus doesn't exist yet more people have it than ever (call it “Fauci's Paradox”). The Great Barrington Declaration was funded by hard right think tanks, notably ones backed by the Koch brother (now singular). An “ex” CIA operative, now State Department spokesperson, was made to squirm under simple, basic journalistic questions and it was glorious. Anti-Russian propaganda accidentally celebrates Ukrainian Nazism. Then we talk about TV for a bit.

132 – Articles and Topics is a Genre Now

Biden keeps on being Biden (now with 58% less brain activity!) and has given free rein to The Market in all areas of our lives. Ruthless privatization in general continues to be ruinous to hearts (literally) and minds. A back 'n' forth about private media monopolies, free speech, censorship and Neil Young's view that HIV can be transmitted via fast food French fries, all via the latest over-discussed Spotify/Rogan controversy. How to see everything Amazon and Google have compiled about you and your disgusting (probably) “private” lives.
