r/parlerwatch mods and Caer Maiko: Parler and Pop-Ups
We decided to try out a couple new things for this very special episode: for one, it’s our first time having (well, trying to have) multiple guests on at once. And two, the guests of this episode wanted to remain anonymous. Joining us are the moderators of r/parlerwatch, a Reddit sub whose original purpose was to be a safe space for people to stay informed about what was happening on social media site Parler.Keith talks with u/rootoo (and occasionally u/thefisharezombies and u/alphap) about a range of topics, from how some average republicans became exposed to far-right ideologies and “Q,” to freedom of speech and the importance of maintaining mental health while learning about some of the darker spaces and rhetoric on the Internet. Guest bartender is Caer Maiko, an award-winning bartender based in Austin, TX. She talks with us about Daijoubu, the “super Asian cocktail pop up” she created with Sharon Yeung, and shares with us some of her favorite Asian-inspired cocktails.> r/parlerwatch > @caermaiko @daijoubu.popup > @keithacarter @theubpodcast

Fred Cray and Daniyel Jones: Found Photos and Angostura Shots
We first discovered this episode’s guest when Keith found a mysterious photo inside a book he bought at Rough Draft bookstore in Kingston, NY. It was a portrait of a man, hand-numbered on the back and a stamp that read “Unique Photograph / Fred Cray.”We, of course, did some research and found that this truly was a one-of-a-kind photo, hand-placed in this book by our neighbor, Brooklyn-based artist Fred Cray.In this episode, Fred talks with us about his Unique Photographs project (through which he’s left hundreds of thousands of unique photos across the world), the “fingerprints” project he has coming out soon, and why he hasn’t been taking photos of people wearing masks.Guest bartender is the fun and entertaining Daniyel Jones, Global Brand Ambassador for House of Angostura.
