Episode 11: News – Vault7, Worlds Best Healthcare 2017 feat. @MurderBryan

Episode 11: News – Vault7, Worlds Best Healthcare 2017 feat. @MurderBryan
This week, with VIP guest @MurderBryan, the Discourse Newsboys (@geckofantasies, @mmalloyboy, @RIPMarkusJ, @cuckymcfucky) talk about the Vault7 leak and the CIA, and the World’s Best Healthcare Bill 2016, the most poorly named legislation of all time. Bryan fills us in a little bit on the stuff Street Fight is going to be doing, and we scream about how awful call centers and Phoenix, AZ is.

Also, @mmalloyboy is deeply sorry that he sounds like he’s calling in from a tin can at the bottom of the ocean, his mic fucked up while traveling.

Episode 7: Culture – Children of Men and the World of Fascism

This week in culture, @hanniballefter, @pnw_trope and @mmalloyboy discuss the 2006 Alfonso Cuarón film “Children of Men” focusing on its portrayal of a world in a post-fascist stage, a nod to Mark Fisher’s Capitalist Realism, and a discussion of the religious and familial themes the movie uses. It’s an incredible movie which we all definitely recommend watching.

Episode 4: News – That Damn Conference, That Damn Dam, That Damn Article

Happy Presidents Day, folks! In honor of this extra special fever dream of a holiday, we brought on @tankiesinatra for his inaugural appearance on the Discourse Collective. This week, we’re going to talk about Donald “The Large One” Trump’s surreal press conference, the near-failure of the Oroville Dam, and the insanely bad TERF bullshit recently published in the American Conservative that tore lefty twitter apart. Also, we get heated over ICE and reiterate that immoral truth: All Cops Are Bastards.

On this episode, we present @pnw_trope, @hanniballefter, @mmalloyboy, @geckofantasies, as well as our sweet boy Fuckley himself, @tankiesinatra.
