Drinks and Dystopia - The Podcast
71 minutes | Apr 19, 2020
Ep 30 - Post-Pandemic Meerkats
Hello! Since we are living in an actual Dystopia we thought instead of looking at what might happen during a dystopia we'd discuss what might happen after this is all over. We decided to try and look at the brighter side of things. We wanted to mention that we know a lot of horrible things are happening in the world at the moment but since we are locked inside and our specialty is normally Dystopias - that looking towards a Utopia for a change might be more helpful to put out into the world. We hope everyone is staying safe and staying home. Thank you to anyone who has to keep working through this time so that we can all leave our houses sooner, so that people can recover and get better and so that Lee and I can make lazy podcasts. Our hearts go out to anyone who has lost someone or is sick. We hope you know you are loved and not alone through all of this. Thank you as always to our Sound Engineer and Editor - Samantha Vincent - https://www.instagram.com/samthingstrange/

Ep 26 - A Tail To Remember
Hello you lovely lot. This week we think about a world where all humans have tails. It was suggested by my brother and boy did we run wild with the ideas (and puns). What do you think? Would you want a tail and if you did have one , which animals tail would you want? Dystopia, Utopia or Midtopia...what do you think?

Ep 24 - A Boat Load Of Sky Diamonds
Hello, we've been away for a while but we are back and this week Lee is in charge. He is pondering Matrioshka brain's, Dyson spheres and diamond filled skies. I do my best to be devil's advocate. We have a special guest this week, Ryan Case from Seattle who poses our fantastic mini question. What do you think? What would happen when we need more fuel than the earth could provide? Dystopia, Utopia or Midtopia?

Ep 23 - The 'Lit' World
This week we try to work out what it would be like to live in a world with a curfew and decide the ridiculous reasons for why that might happen. Lee has some horrible ideas about what happens when the lights go out and Tania wants to rebel by holding plays in the park. A weird short episode from two weird people.
54 minutes | Jul 15, 2018
Ep 22 - What The Fluff
This week we discuss a world where animals can tell us their darkest secrets. Lee decides that dogs are excellent judges of character and we both are baffled by science....no changes there then.
52 minutes | May 27, 2018
Ep 21 - Don't Tell My Wizard What To Do
This week I mess with Lee's head and ask him to question virtual morality. We discuss cyborg arms, the best ships of Sci fi and disappointed 99th level wizards. What do you guys think? If we spent all of our time in the virtual world, would our morals cross over? Dystopia, Midtopia or Utopoia? References mentioned: Ready_Player_One - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ready_Player_One

Ep 20 - The World of Woof
This week we explore what a world would look like if dogs evolved to be all powerful. We decide if dogs have arms, how they'd wear trousers and if it would be a Mad Max dystopia or a beautiful futuristic Utopia. What do you think? Utopia, Dystopia or Midtopia?

Ep 19 - Do Geckos Have Willies ? - A Lee Special
This week Lee is in charge. We discuss living in a world where we are forced to feel nothing. We reveal childhood secrets, discuss the difference between emotions and sensations, and ask the important question...do geckos have willies? Thank you to Lee's friend and listener Dwayne for this weeks 'New World Rule'. If anyone has any burning questions or suggestions let us know and we will take your idea, ruin it and make you wish you'd never suggested it. Have a great week everyone.

Ep 16 - The Black Minute Market
We're back and this week we are talking about Sci Fi mom's, pooping wombats and pounds being replaced by seconds. We decide if we'd want to be immortal and I teach Lee a new word. This weeks show idea comes to us from Thom Jones ( Cereal Arsonist - https://www.twitch.tv/cerealarsonisttm) What do you think about this weeks world? Dystopia , Midtopia or Utopia? Things mentioned this week: J.R.R. Tolkien Quote: "I cordially dislike allegory in all its manifestations, and always have done so since I grew old and wary enough to detect its presence. I much prefer history – true or feigned– with its varied applicability to the thought and experience of readers. I think that many confuse applicability with allegory, but the one resides in the freedom of the reader, and the other in the purposed domination of the author."

Ep 15 - Bionic Bigotry
This week we talk about A.I and what we should do when a computer passes the Turing Test. Will we use it for good or evil? Will it want to take over or will it become a stand up comic ? Lee brings up some interesting points and Tania drinks a lot of wine. What do you think? What will A.I be used for and will it want to destroy all humans? Dystopia, Utopia or Midtopia? You decide.

Ep 14 - Not So Bright
This week we talk about the new Netflix film 'Bright'. We were both really excited to watch this film and to see what a movie could do with the concept of 'Lord of the Rings' brought into the modern world. It's safe to say that we were disappointed. So this week we try our hands at world building. We discuss if it's racist to ride a centaur, slugs with faces and hippy elves. What did you think of the movie? Is there anything we missed or overlooked? How do you guys think this world could have been created differently? Is the world we created a Dystopia, Midtopia or Utopia?

Ep 13 - The Sprout Conundrum
What if we really were all created equal? A perfect world or an excuse to get a facial tattoo? We also talk about the benefits of being a hobbit, animal side kicks and sexy ants. What do you think would happen if everyone looked the exact same? Would you like it? Who would you want the world to look like ?
54 minutes | Feb 11, 2018
Ep 12 - The Luck Paradox
This week we sneak into a world that Douglas Adams would feel very at home in. Tania becomes convinced that money can buy you happiness and that luck is real. Lee tries to talk some sense into her. We are confused , yet quite upbeat in this weeks episode. Tell us what you think. Does luck already exist in the world? Would the world be better if we could give out luck? Can you survive this podcast if you drink every time we say the word 'luck'....probably not. Utopia, midtopia or dystopia? Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below or emailing us : Drinksanddystopia@hotmail.com See you next week you lovely people

Ep 11 - You'd Be The Monkey That Stood On Its Baby - With Special Guest
This week we have our first guest star. Lee's brother Alex is visiting us and helps us decide if you would want to live forever in a computer, as well as helping us decide if we are real to begin with. We also talk monkey babies, grape filters and pod people. Backtracks: . Creature Feature - Lee's monkey experiment may actually be fake monkey news. It is a widely known story but not a proven real occurrence (as far as we can tell) This is great news because it's horrid experiment. Don't worry, I'll make him do a shot for this mistake in next weeks backtrack corner. . For some reason Tania found this episode hilarious. Please ignore her cackling during the recording.
