Ep 17 - Redpillers, the Post-Apocalypse, and Jenkem, all in one show?!
7 days ago
Natasha(@ashesforfoxes), Garrett(@comradegarrett), & I started by talking about Gamergate/RedPill/MRA bollocks, and naturally wander off into creators who can't be edited, Zizek, why we can't envision a future that isn't post-apoc or SkyNet-controlled, and wind up mentioning fake drugs, from "Nuke" to one the media actually think are real, like Jenkem. Ep was recorded in early April.

The quote I'm mangling is from Fredric Jameson(I think), and Zizek says it a lot: "It is easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism"
