Especially in S2, it's maybe the one show at the time that really seems like it was saying "hey sure seems fucked-up that Blackwater is all wired into the government and just rolled into New Orleans, huh? They'd probably do something really bad if the entire country were their playground like Iraq!"

Also that private military contractors are the enemy, and they're going to do whatever the fuck they want to you when they show up.

Jericho has some goofy midwestern libertarian aesthetic stuff that's aged terribly, but I think it makes a good point about breakdown in a disaster situation happening when people start getting on their own bullshit instead of maintaining communal functionality.

I have four hours and fifteen minutes of podcast audio to edit now.

I think there's some legitimate usefulness in being able to summarize this in a way that someone who doesn't spend all day reading about inscrutable stuff like the commodities markets can understand. A lot of economics is totally disconnected from actual society, actual human wants and needs, and people tend to take a turn left if they aren't ancap dipshits once they understand this. People's economics is a powerful political tool.

Cryptocurrency only has value in that you mine and trade in it with the expectation of cashing it out at some point, since it doesn't actually function as currency by itself. NFTs just store some metadata on a file and people call it a "token" instead of a "coin," and act like it's physical ownership, which it isn't, but that doesn't matter because all this shit is just the Ork technology that works because you believe in it. This is the closest non-techie explanation I've come up with.

Baffled by Merle somehow being the less annoying character to hear dialog from.

This season of TWD definitely has *significantly* better pacing and more interesting characters, but the attempts to make the governor have interiority are grating as hell. Boo hoo he's basically what happens when the Home Owner's Association has a militia because he's keeping his zombie daughter in his basement.

I hope everyone's ready for my galaxy brain theory on why Beyond Thunderdome got the backlash it did.

I think I'm at the point where I need a professional haircut to clean the ends up.

Good thing we broke it into two recordings, because my voice is gone.

A grim portent of what could happen if anyone agrees to do a Dulles brothers/history of the CIA episode with me.

This rough cut of half the Mad Max episode is an hour and 45 minutes.

Michelle wants her damn sword back and wants to know what's up with the creepy guy in charge of shiny happy whiteytown. Her motivations are 100% reasonable.
