Ezra Koenig, go on Art and Labor! You deserve this big Toblerone! Note: spoilers don’t really start til like 20 minutes in. We went to the anti-Amazon community forum and read a bunch of Bookchin, but instead of discussing either of those things we recap all of Neo Yokio. Please watch this incredible series about excessive wealth and demonic revolution.

Debunking some bullshit from the “socially conservative” left. Red Scare triples down on ableism and Angela Nagle dips her toe in strasserism. Why is lefty media just becoming Vice 2? We also check in on Long island City, site of labor struggles and luxury apartments for Amazon executives.

Stuff breaking down Nagle’s “The Left Case Against Open Borders” here:

BE LIKE BERLIN! That is our message for those who are ready to fight Amazon’s new headquarters. Kreuzberg successfully blocked Google, and we can too. We read some good take downs from Ben Davis and Queens Neighborhoods United. Plus we take a lot of inspiration from the new Ursula K. Le Guin documentary.

We tackle the art world’s relationship to health care (spoiler: if you’re in the US, it hardly exists). We also discuss the massive societal failures that are actively causing mass death for chronically ill or  differently abled people. Finally, we get into the government’s fraught and complicated relationships with the pharmaceutical and insurance industries. Read Artie and Beatrice’s pieces:

This episode we dive into the criticism surrounding Red Scare and their recent profile in The Cut.  Mostly we discuss the ideology shaped by Camille Paglia, an individualist feminist who aligns herself with the alt-right favorite’s dad Jordan Peterson. We try to appeal for lefty media unity, and find some queer relief from the writings of Mary Beard, Ursula K Le Guin, and admitted normie Peter Frase.

Matthew Thurber joins us as our first in-studio guest!! We discuss his new book Art Comic, now available through Drawn & Quarterly. The book has direct parallels to our lives, it’s kinda nuts, I’m still not over it. We discuss art school problems, new models, ideals, concessions, and debate the merits and pitfalls of book fairs. A big highlight is the part when we all break out Jack Smith impressions. DIY art? Conceptual art? Queer art? All eventually gets sucked up into the dreaded market. We’re gonna work together and fight our way out of this mess. We must!!

We got a modest amount of funding to travel to the Midwest to participate in Erin K Drew’s amazing art talk show, Putty! Although we had some incredible support, we definitely returned to NYC in the red. Please consider supporting us on Drip for the full Putty show including a heated discussion we get into with the artists Maura Jasper & William Keihn. Erin’s about to embark on a tour of her own, you must go see this fun and informative show!! We were also visited with The Condo Association to discuss the question “What would a unionized art world look like?” We had a small and super fun show at a witch store called Space Oddities as well!! Thank you so much to everyone that hosted us, and shared your amazing neighborhoods with us.

Go to the 3rd Anti-Columbus Day Tour: https://www.facebook.com/events/235077237185003/ We build on our “Artwashing and Soho” episode using our direct experiences and observations of gentrification in our neighborhoods. We do a “Goofus and Gallant” for anti-gentrication art. Shoutout to the locals, but also these thoughts can be applied all over the place. It’s a layered topic, but I think we illustrate our points well even though I have a bad cold.
