About This Show
Three disparate men converge for a strange discussion of pop culture and politics. Our hosts include a psychonaut therapist with an aim to explore the healing benefits of drugs, an anarchist philosophy professor equally influenced by Marx and prison, and an English teacher terrified by the universe but energized by marginalized literature and media alike. Topics will cover the range from popular to degraded culture.
Most Recent Episode
In this episode, three white men discuss what the hell is going on with white people. Whiteness as a concept is broken down, all the attendant privileges are confronted, or at least as many as we could delve into, and the assumptions made in white society are pointed out. White sensitivity about being perceived as racist, the proper linguistic reaction to a white supremacist, and the reaction of white figures in media to racism are among the topics receiving attention. As an entertaining extra, we revive our time honored tradition of roasting someone, and today, it's Bill Maher's unfathomably limp interview of racist/idiot/pedophilia enthusiast Milo Yiannopoulos. (I might have spelled his name wrong, but who cares, he sucks.) TRIGGER WARNING: If you are white and afraid to ask tough questions about what that means, avoid this pod.
