Fertile Eyes Fertilise Fertile Lies

August 1, 2022

Riley and Dan speak about the history and politics of fertiliser with Matt Huber, author of Climate Change as Class War.

But first, we review the strange world of the Pacific Northwest that Dan saw on tour. Long story short, a lot more shantytown and a lot more of the wreckage of a scooter based economy.

Dan is off being a rock star, so Riley and Tech Won't Save Us's Paris Marx take a look at That Rogers Outage and question how "more competition" could have stopped this, but first - a few developments in the mad world of self driving cars, a concept that only makes sense when you assume money is free forever.

Pierre Poilievre Speaks for the Trees

Pierre Poilievre Speaks for the Trees

July 8, 2022

With Bitcoin done, Canada's putative conservative leader becomes absorbed by the forest, and emerges as an esoteric log-o-crat. Also, we look at the emergence of "UltraFast" delivery in Canada - a business model that never made any money or sense anywhere else... but that we didn't want to be left out of. Finally, we review some expert testimony on Eastern Europe that the NDP's most prominent theatre fan was not so keen on. Forget it Jake, it's Starship Troopers.

It's a Canada Day Bonus! Dan and Riley talk about Canada's cheerleading of further escalation in Eastern Europe, as well as going back to the Trucker Protests, who have now identified some war heroes who are going to go and tactically cry at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Ottawa.

Bad Tweeters Club

June 28, 2022

Dan and Riley reflect on what the crypto crash means for Canadian bitcoin maxi's like Pierre Poilievre, as well as other scurrilous programmes designed to part musicians from their worthless fiat currency and art in exchange for valuable database entries. Also, we look at a list of Bad Tweeters assembled for the purposes of national security.

June 13, 2022

On this rare Riley-less episode Dan is joined by Michael Barclay, Arlen Thompson and Tim Kingsbury to discuss Michaels new book on the rise (and rise!) of Canadian Indie Rock 2000-2006. Why do these bands have so many members? Did Fugazi brain poison a generation into self sabotage? Are the rents too damn high to facilitate another scene? All this and more as we survey The Half Decade When Canada Was Cool*

*Canada was not and never will be cool

It's in the title, folks - as the Ontario election comes to a close, Dan and Riley reflect on the musical highlights of the campaign, specifically the Doug Ford campaign song Get It Done. Then, we go West to investigate police forces in BC's lower mainland taking a turn for the Salo.

Oh My God They Killed Kenney’s Career

May 29, 2022

Bye bye to the very nasty Jason Kenney! Sorry the base of hooting suburbanite fascists you created slipped out of your control! Bad luck! Don't let the door hit you on the way out! Dan and Riley reflect on the life and career of Alberta's former premier, and how he's part of a large machine that ratchets politics to the right by living in a fantasy world of ice cream for dinner. Also, we look at developments in Ukraine.

The Ontarian’s Dilemma ft. Luke Savage

May 13, 2022

In case you didn't know, there's an election coming up in the very heart of Downtown Canada. Jacobin magazine contributor and Michael and Us co-host Luke Savage joins Riley and Dan to discuss the state of play in Ontario politics, a reflection on the sucking charisma void at the heart of the CPC leader's debate, and we get to know "Hrulf" from Quebec, who is just really into runes.
