135 - Zombie Transgression
/

Transgression: who is she? Is she real? Is she dead? OK and Lucia are back to their roots, being ON ONE. Covering a range of topics that all make sense together I swear. We start with the Laura Kipnis essay “Transgression, an Elegy” which is difficult to separate from Kipnis herself, the fucking harper’s letter again, etc; but we also tie it to China, and how other countries handle celebrity influence. Can China erase Billionaires? Can they make gaming good?? Will they start making more gay shows less illegal??? I, dear listener, want to believe. ps- the Kanye take is this episode also.
