A repository of vocalized ideas and cynical reflections on the state of the human heart.
174 – I’m a Slave 4 Endorphins
We take a brisk tour through various current AI implications. A “free” 55-inch flat screen TV that merely wants to turn your living room into a advert-hellscape. A possibly inebriated driver switches seats with his dog, the officer in question may never notice the oddness of this. In Portugal, canine lifespan records, shattered. Some annoying […]
173 – Inside the Mind of a Boston Dynamics Robot Laughing With Salad While Beating Themselves Over the Head With The Bible Every Morning
We eulogize the Metaverse, read the lips of King Charles, hear Mr. Musk out (not really) on why working remotely is evil, discuss Patient M: The Man Who Was Shot in The Head And Woke Up Seeing The World Backwards, chat about a youtuber deliberately crashes a plane to get the hearts going in the […]
172 – Mayor Pete Needs to Return Some Video Tapes
Another overstuffed episode (with leftovers for next time). French labor unions cut off electricity and gas to targeted homes of politicians and billionaires. A string of articles showing more hubris and self-cannibalization in the nervous system of USofA. “Nothing will fundamentally change, jack, unless it's for the worse!” AMLO dramatically increases Mexico's minimum wage and […]

169 – Give Me Stock Buybacks or Give Me Death
Competitive grave digging in “vampiric” Eastern Europe. The world's tallest jail—who dare says the US can't still aspire to greatness? In China, fifty year old “Uncle Chen” can beat the average marathon time—while chain-smoking the whole way. The constellation of handlers, pharmacists, and groper-conversion-therapists that comprise “Joe Biden” asked the “Presidential Emergency Board” to weigh […]
168 – Make Neoliberalism Based Again? feat. Timothy Robert Buechner
Timothy Robert Buechner returns as dual guest & substitute cohost for Jason. We talk about the fledging effort to make neoliberalism cool (again?); the nature of all 'centrisms'; Volcels are Basically Cows; how the most labor friendly president in US history has recently shown his friendliness to railway union members; how the NYTimes has suddenly, […]
167 – Live Every Day Like It’s Kristallnacht at KFC
Fuck the midterms. Slavery now illegal in 3 of 4 states. Man steals own car. Shooting the homeless now a misdemeanor. Hero unleashes bees at eviction cops. Hero throws can of 'White Claw' at Ted Cruz during baseball parade. KFC urges German customers to celebrate Kristallnacht with cheesy chicken. Advertising in space, the future is […]
