157 - Tim Epic's Bandcamp w/ David Turner
/

Music business criticism expert, creator of the fantastic Penny Fractions newsletter, and honorary co-host David Turner is back to discuss the depressing merger of Bandcamp and Epic Games. Can companies maintain consciousness? What role does giant multinational corporations like Tencent and Apple play in the geopolitical sphere? Are Fortnite dances going to overtake the petrodollar by 2024? Are we in 9/11 2 or WWIII? We urge everyone to believe in themselves, understand our place in the media pipeline, and focus on what we can control in our immediate.

Episode 79 – Global Super Fights
/

We talk about localization and the great yuppie exodus of New York City 2020. Propublica confirmed everything we’ve been saying on this show for months, that Cuomo and De Blasio murdered tens of thousands of people through their refusal to shutdown the city. Kicking houseless people off the subways and adding a couple UV lamps are not going to be enough to make people feel safe to do retail and tourism again without also providing massive testing and other essentials like food and rent relief. Which is why China is about to easily overtake the United States as the global superpower, whoopsies. And we thought the city was becoming a giant police state mall BEFORE the pandemic!! PS – the only opposition party we have is fighting to protect corporations and fund the cops over workers.
