Episode 34: Culture – Twin Peaks with Joel Bocko

Episode 34: Culture – Twin Peaks with Joel Bocko
This week, the Culture crew talks about one of the greatest TV shows of all time: Twin Peaks. As it returns to television after over 25 years, Malloy (@mmalloyboy), Ian (@IanH9114), RS (RS_Benedict), and special guest Joel Bocko (@LostInTheMovies) talk about the strange, surreal world portrayed in the world of Twin Peaks, the deep attachment fans of the show have sustained in its long absence, and connections with writings like Eugene Thacker’s “In The Dust of this Planet,” Matt Christman’s Prestige TV article in Current Affairs, and Andy Burn’s “Wrapped in Plastic”.

Episode 27: Special Episode – POLITICS KILLS Feat. Greg Dwyer

Episode 27: Special Episode – POLITICS KILLS Feat. Greg Dwyer
This week, the gang (@Jung_Hegelian, @mmalloyboy, and @RIPmarkusJ) is joined by @grgdwyr of Arsenal for Democracy to discuss the AHCA, a “health care reform” that will destroy coverage provisions for millions of Americans and decimate the feeble steps toward universal coverage that the PPACA provided. If this piece of legislation passes and is signed into law by Trump it will result in a quality of life decline and literal death for thousands of Americans. Politics KILLS.
