We had journalist Daniel Trilling on the podcast to discuss his research into The Home Office - how it became such a strange, cruel, dysfunctional department, and how it fits into the larger cruel absurdities of immigration policy in western countries. Also, we talk excitedly about Matt Hancock’s new appointment to the UN (…we got the bad news a co…
 
This week, Nate and Milo discuss the North-South divide of England with help from two friends of the show--and FT reporters--Rob Smith (@bondhack) and Kaye Wiggins (@kayewiggins). Rob is from Derby (technically not in the North, but presumed to be) and Kaye is from Southport (definitely in the North). We discuss their experiences in the South, the …
 
Elon Musk has greenwashed an oil refinery! We speak with fintwit blogger ESGHound about just how this was possible. We also looked into the ongoing issues surrounding Tether. But first, we look at the greatest achievement in British Journalism, as Iain Duncan Smith writes that Britain wouldn't have worked from home during the Blitz. To hear the who…
 
Mark Zuckerberg is building the future of the internet, and the future of everything, and it’s basically a much more exploitative version of Habbo Hotel. Where we’re going, you won’t need eyes to see… it’s the Metaverse! And thankfully we've got Jathan Sadowski, friend of the show and cohost of the This Machine Kills Podcast, to explain it further.…
 
Several months ago, Alice Caldwell-Kelly awoke from a literal fever dream covered in a sheen of sweat, with one name on her lips: JOHN TALIBAN. A man whose name is just, coincidentally, Taliban. A man who loves Ford cars. Maybe his name’s Hungarian, it’s impossible to know. And now, from that impossible dream, Alice and friend of the show Noah Suar…
 
This week, Riley, Milo, and Alice speak with Paris Marx (@parismarx) of the Tech Won’t Save Us podcast about Britain’s desire for a call-the-cops-on-your-neighbours hotline, a new tech development that uses (very reliable, surely) facial recognition to call the cops on you, and much more. If you want access to our Patreon bonus episodes, early rele…
 
So you've decided to run down the functions of your society? What's left to get people up in the morning? We are joined by Abi Thorn and Mattie Lubchansky to talk about the political usefulness of transphobia. But first, we talk about how Britain engineered a gas crisis it is unwilling to escape from, and talk about a cool business. If you want acc…
 
This week, Milo and Nate speak with British Army veteran, leftist organiser, BJJ enthusiast, and all round comrade Joe Glenton (@joejglenton) about Britain's relationship with its Army and the different types of nutters who serve in it. Joe has a book coming out in November entitled VETERANHOOD: RAGE AND HOPE IN BRITISH EX-MILITARY LIFE that you ca…
 
Here is an unlocked Britainology to hopefully brighten your weekend. Yes, it was a little bit late when it came out. It was late because Nate and Milo got exposed to covid right before Christmas and couldn't record while waiting on test results. But we have in fact discussed Jim Davidson's terrible bawdy Cinderella pantomime from 1995, entitled 'Si…
 
We've found another terrible startup: a billion-dollar-valuation 'plastic recycling' venture that is too dangerous to actually work (but would absolve the oil industry of any need to change its business model). It operates via a concept called shuggling. It also has yet again involved a promised factory in Ohio that will never exist. Prepare to get…
 
Ciaran (@ciarandold) and Nick (@sternburgpapi) from Corner Spaeti (@cornerspaeti) join the gang to discuss the upcoming federal election in Germany, and then we go deep on Europe's most embarrassing party of nerds: "Volt!" If you want access to our Patreon bonus episodes, early releases of free episodes, and powerful Discord server, sign up here: h…
 
This month's $5 Britainology involves Milo forcing Nate to watch an incredibly awkward episode of I'm Alan Partridge and then helping him talk him off the ledge. We also explore how Partridge is not all that exaggerated a version of a British radio DJ, replete with some Richard Madeley and Jeremy Vine all-time classics. If you want to hear the whol…
 
For this week's bonus, Milo, Nate, and Alice watched the 1995 Kathryn Bigelow film STRANGE DAYS, in which Ray Fiennes is a lovelorn memory-salesman hawking minidiscs that let you experience other people's consciousness. It's a bizarre document from the time in which its made, it's a film with cult status in certain quarters, and it posits the notio…
 
This week, we’ve got a real doozy for you: a bad startup, some Labour kremlinology, and an examination of supply chain shortages in the UK because our government are some of the dumbest people to ever breathe air. Did you know that when your taxes go up to fund privatization and pocket-stuffing, that’s actually communism? You heard it here first. I…
 
We're back. Yes, we did another live show at Vauxhall Comedy Club in London, and we discussed a startup that wants to make a mattress that can do DDOS attacks. We also read a Telegraph article about the decline of the West. It's Riley, Milo, Hussein, Nate, and special guest Phoebe Roy. You'll love it! Get it on Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com…
 
This week, we learn the story of the Diapers dot com billionaire who wants to build a utopian city in the desert based on the principles of Georgism. Does this sound like The Line? Well, it’s been compared to it by the same credulous weirdos who love that, too. Also, a startup! If you want access to our Patreon bonus episodes, early releases of fre…
 
Bill Corbett (@BillCorbett) of Rifftrax and MST3K joins the gang to discuss a strange film - the documentary made by failed London mayoral candidate and three time piss drinker, Brian Rose. It's all about how Ayahuasca can motivate you to save the world with the perfect conference of youtubers. Get the whole thing on Patreon here: https://www.patre…
 
We spoke with OnlyFans creator Carta Monir (@CartaMonir) about the platform's decision (and subsequent reversal) regarding explicit content, and the American Evangelical Right's "not so long" march through the institutions of culture. But first, a startup! If you want access to our Patreon bonus episodes, early releases of free episodes, and powerf…
 
What if Black Mirror did This Is Us? What if your kid wanted to upload themselves to their dang phone? What if a Lib Dem wrote one of the worst TV dramas to ever exist? All of this, and more, in the TF review of Years and Years (episodes 1 and 2). We hope it doesn't count as a spoiler alert to say it is bad. We've reviewed episodes 1-5 on the Patre…
 
This week, Alice joins Nate and Milo to discuss the British reality TV show 'Grand Designs,' in which insane people decide to sacrifice it all to build the house of their dreams. Does it sometimes go okay? Sure. But most of the time, it's a slow-motion wreck with dyspeptic commentary from what we might describe as architecture Jeremy Clarkson. Enjo…
 
On this unlocked Britainology we are joined by Alice to discuss the 1982 Falklands War. Why has it permanently lodged in the psyche of the Boomers? Why do people care about these rocks in the middle of the South Atlantic? Why did a British task force commander decide to explode himself in order to dislodge a machine gun position? You will be able t…
 
Our friend @idahobones joins the gang for a discussion of how tech-inflected insurance companies dream of a heavily surveillance life for all, and also to revisit an old friend of the show, Softbank’s very own Lemonade! Prepare yourself for the revelation. Get the whole thing on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/posts/55340989 If you’re in the UK an…
 
Alice and Riley speak with returning guest, journalist Arron Merat (@a_merat), reflecting on twenty years of cruelty and institutional failure on the part of the British state and its bloody imperial adventure in Afghanistan. We look deeper into the domestic pressures, economic and psychological, that made this all happen, and look at some of the a…
