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.

Listen to the full episode on our Patreon here. Invest in these controversial opinions for the highest clout return on your Substack!! OK, Darcie, and Sarah take another swirl around the media cesspool and discuss the propaganda around the Amazon unionization effort. Lefty media is seemingly divided on appealing to either democrats or republicans, which ignores migrant workers, prisoners, and the global south who obviously cannot vote in US elections. There’s an eternal culture war on the twitter busybox, how can we break free?

We keep on the “art” promise of this podcast and discuss the recent announcement that the massive Philip Guston retrospective has been pushed to 2024 citing the current political climate and fears the audience just won’t understand the context of the work. The press release is asinine and ahistorical, isn’t art suppose to hep us work through complicated and difficult issues?? We put our takes into the take machine!!
