Anti-government plots from the right, and feminist art from cis men? It’s more likely than you think. Getting public art contracts and getting away with murder is WAY easier if you’re man. Also, why are American dudes on Reddit so into defending Hong Kong, is there a reason why the BLM protests aren’t as respected?? We discuss individualism, alienation, and masculinity in America, which has led us to a a hilariously literal toxic white house.

Welcome to the stage Ms. “Show” Bezos!! We watched the congressional antitrust committee lightly prod the four biggest tech company CEOs in the country. Surely the system will be able to hold these monopolies accountable and protect our user data! What could go wrong? Excuse me Mr. Google, how do I open PDF? Between surreal dreams we dip in and out of the doomer fog and try to think about or imagine possible futures. There is a huge eviction crisis on the horizon, and a major confrontation incoming as congress fails to extend unemployment insurance (for now).

Happy New Year from A&L x ok.glass!! This is a postmodern free-flowing discussion with nice piano songs in the background.

We discuss strategy, electoral politics, local politics, international politics, the politics of mental health, and who should probably be murdered, parody parody parody.

Warning that this episode is gets into some heavy allegories, we’re very raw in our feelings. That said, we discuss the latest on Amazon NYC, which despite the AOC spin, is NOT A WIN. We also touch on the latest Art Miami Basel controversy spectacle, and the state of gentrification and unionization. Plus we make a bunch of references to Rick and Morty, The Irishman, and Promare. It’s a postmodern nightmare. If you like the podcast and want more, please consider supporting us: https://www.patreon.com/artandlabor. Follow us on twitter and instagram.

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.

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.
