Michael Crumplar, or "McRumps" as he prefers to be called, joins us for a lively holiday discussion on what else? The theory of Jacques Lacan. The cool thing about Lacanian analysis is everyone has a dad (at least on an imaginary or symbolic level) even if you don't have one in real life. And you get to kill your dad, its how you enter politics. This allows us to seamlessly link dubious medieval interpretations of the Holy Trinity, Joker, Elliot Rodgers, SpaceGiko, etc
We talk to comedian and twitter user @jakefm about the true meaning and spirit of comedy as well as weathering multiple cancellations. Subscribe at: https://www.patreon.com/posts/jakefm-fm-second-32258596 For full version.
Jesse Singal told us to have The Stranger's Katie Herzog on and we can't say "no" to Jesse Singal. So, despite not knowing who Katie Herzog is or that she is The Stranger's, we have her on the show where we learn about these things. A considerable amount of time is devoted to going over "culture war" type issues as well, including the #MeToo media moment. This was recorded prior to the release of Ashley's Jacobite piece, "Another #MeToo Victim?" Ergo Katie implores Ashley to write about it...
A man, a friend of the pod, who has been reviled and mocked in the Red Scare fandom, but turns the other cheek, shares knowledge and wisdom with us just as he has shared in the mentions of Anna Khachiyan. A beautiful experience. Full version available at:https://www.patreon.com/posts/31664487
We attempt to establish a sex worker activist collective with comrade Heidi Matthews, but, as often happens within burgeoning organizations we encounter some major ideological differences. Will our collective pull through or, fissure. Because, as Comrade Mao has wisely said, "line struggle is class struggle" and "one becomes two."
Georgia-based performance artist "Honklerita" sits down to discuss Clown World and her artistic praxis, past, and plans for the future. Basically the concept of Honkler is that it is a frog (related perhaps to similar memetic, abject entities—Pepe, Poo Poo Pee Pee, Groyper). They exist in the same world as his Apollonian counterparts who, like Wojak, experience life as suffering (cf. The Four Noble Truths). A woman performance artist can't dress up as Honkler, however, because that would be...
Jake Flores is a reformed man: He is no longer gay or does poppers or other inhalants of ill repute. Despite the fact he always has a horrible time on our show, he is now a man of moral integrity and feels obligated to help keep the hosts on the straight and narrow—out of radical jails and into respect jails (respect jail is when you dont go to jail and you respect everyone).
Justin Murphy returns, ostensibly to talk about his book "Based Deleuze." Instantly, things go horribly awry. Because we never talk about "Based Deleuze," excerpts from the book read by the Google Robot Lady are sprinkled throughout. Enjoy
Months ago prior to one of our hosts, Angel, getting 51-50ed a bunch of times one of our last recorded episodes was with a man formerly AKA "Father Rocket Dan" about why people who are depressed and insane get extra blessings from the ENTIRE Holy Trinity and the Blessed Mother (among others) and also how not having sex is best. New episode from the Girls Chat Season 1 vault. Are you ready for season 2?
Jesse Singal came on Girls Chat to explain to us why being a TERF is wrong, reveal where he falls on the LGBTQ spectrum, advocate that the federal government arm all gamers, etc
