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.

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

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.
