About Us

Two good friends catch up around the podfire, talking about politics, life, media, and whatever else is on the mind. Yep, another one of those! Most episodes, we touch on a bit of media, a bit of politics, and try to fill the gaps with humor.

Latest Episodes

Revenge of the Centrists

This time we stayed mostly on theme and the theme is centrists and how insufferable they are. Other topics up for discussion include the Washington Football Team, interwar German politics, and Cowboy Bebop. Also, who's listening from Moscow? We're really curious.

Revenge of the Centrists

Baguul and Toyotathon

This is what happens when we sit down without a plan and hit record. Here's the Biden ad we talk about side by side with an ad for the F-150: https://twitter.com/Relentlessbored/status/1278952023120109570?s=20

Policing Society Part 2: The System

Policing Society Part 1: Cops

In this episode, your intrepid hosts discuss the ongoing wave of protests over police brutality and racism. Our conversation lasted over two hours, so we decided to make this the first half of our first two-part episode. More information on issues we mentioned in the show: COMSTAT and NYPD arrest stats: https://gimletmedia.com/shows/reply-all/o2hx34 Adrian Schoolcraft: https://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/30/nyregion/officer-who-disclosed-police-misconduct-settles-suit.html Ferguson activist disappearances: https://www.chicagotribune.com/nation-world/ct-ferguson-activist-deaths-black-lives-matter-20190317-story.html Local representation and environmental racism: https://www.dukechronicle.com/article/2019/09/nicholas-school-duke-grad-black-experience-environmental-spaces Police targeting legal observers: https://www.nlg.org/police-targeting-nlg-legal-observers-at-black-lives-matter-protests/?fbclid=IwAR00z_1A1Cs7wfV8TTa5EnoP5aZqliJBSgTeHC_h-Huh8mGip8QX1amkJeA Massive spreadsheet full of instances of Police brutality: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1YmZeSxpz52qT-10tkCjWOwOGkQqle7Wd1P7ZM1wMW0E/edit?usp=sharing

Don't Call it Lizardbrain

This time your hosts discuss work-life balance and self help. What do they have to do with 30-50 hogs, the Chinese Exclusion Act, and the Congo Free State? Nothing really, but we talked about it all this episode anyway. 30-50 feral hogs explained: https://www.vox.com/future-perfect/2019/8/6/20756162/30-to-50-feral-hogs-meme-assault-weapons-guns-kids Link to the Forbes article: https://www.forbes.com/sites/bryanrobinson/2020/01/05/when-your-lizard-brain-burns-you-out-and-short-circuits-your-career/#27424c0f3c7d

Put Cheese on Your Moussaka (The Bernie Postmortem)

Hope you like hearing about leftism because that's what we talked about this time. We start talking about why some people are being so annoying about Bernie's loss and end up talking about space pirates. Also, put cheese on your damn moussaka, people. And it's called lunchfast, not brunch.

Put Cheese on Your Moussaka (The Bernie Postmortem)

Metaphorical Splash Mountain

This time, we talk about what's on everyone's mind. Splash Mountain. Well, that and video games, names, gentrification in Austin, TX and Indianapolis, and of course COVID. But don't worry, it's less fearful hand wringing and more talking about how an anarchist society would approach pandemic, or how COVID reshapes what we see as essential.

Alright Tuesday

This episode's alright. Your intrepid hosts chatted on Super Tuesday about the Democratic primaries. Also on the docket: why the right can't make art, why Christopher Nolan is going to the gulag, and Austin's dogs weigh in with their thoughts on the Democratic candidates. The whole episode is conducted with the high degree of professionalism long-time listeners have come to expect. So, sit back, relax, and don't forget to vote no matter what day it is. Links to topics discussed this episode: Gail Collins and Bret Stephens' column: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/03/opinion/super-tuesday-2020.html The making of Casablanca: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casablanca_(film) The Nazis' "Degenerate Art Exhibition": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Degenerate_Art_Exhibition Geralt's wang in the Witcher: https://www.vulture.com/2019/12/the-witcher-bathtub-geralt-meme.html

Alright Tuesday

Podlusions of Grandeur (Coups and Questions)

There has been a coup in our Facebook group chat and we have to tell you about it (up until about 15:30). Also, we talk about WWIII memes and zoomers. Then I ask Jay a series of increasingly dumb questions (kind of) about the Democratic Primary.
