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.

Similar to when Werner Herzog asked of Pokemon Go, "Is there violence? Is there murder?" we are often preoccupied by questions of violence, or at least shaped as people by the specter of it.

Pacifists be warned, the answer does not involve disseminating flowers. Remember that one of our preeminent cultural figures, Walter Sobchak, stated that pacifism was an emotional problem. We are not to be held responsible for your actions, dear listener, do not misconstrue our message and punch people indiscriminately, but at least hear our arguments based in history and rationality.
