Episode 127 - Psychic Damage w/ Topher Florence
/

OK and Sarah slightly lose it this week talking to their guru at the top of the mountain, possible legend, and internet auteur Topher Florence aka Docfuture1. Actually coming from Something Awful in the early 2000s, Topher’s work as a writer and video artist cut to the bone, and present a highly informed perspective of fandom, cringe culture, anonymous cruelty aka the “caldron of suburban internet”. Why did Disney buy Marvel? Why has isekai taken off in the past decade? Why do we still differentiate between high and low culture, even though we know better? An episode for the Real Ones and a desperate attempt by OK to history-build a hagiography in order to justify all this other shit we do. We’re starting a cult for if you ever wanted to be your own boss, set your own hours, and huff paint while flashbacking to Gooey Gus. Get in on the ground floor if you’re ready to change your life!
