7/18/2018
More
It’s another month, the moon has turned, a butterfly rustles its wings in the Amazon, and it’s time for yet another episode of Riley’s Commie Book Club! This month we’re reading ‘Violent Borders’ by Reece Jones, published by Verso Books. We talk about the roots of borders in exploitation, and the important role they play in allowing capital to externalise its own contradictions. Riley gets frequently distracted and remembers stories from his personal life. Ably produced as ever by...

7/9/2018
More
Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and recently returned Milo (@Milo_Edwards) speak with migrant advocate Zoe Gardner (@ZoeJardiniere ) about refugees, migrants, right-wing opposition to all forms of immigration, endless liberal equivocation on the topic, and whether or not Riley is an economic migrant (he is).

6/28/2018
More
In a special edition of Trashfuture, Riley (@raaleh) and Milo (@Milo_Edwards) hung out in Moscow with Russian comedian Yevgeniy Chebatkov and discussed the Russian comedy scene, why you can’t make jokes about Putin on TV, Tsarist-nostalgia restaurants, and Milo’s controversial opinion that maybe Stalinism was a bit much. Hussein (@HKesvani) was unable to make the trip to Russia as he ‘works’ a ‘job.’ You can commodify your dissent with a t-shirt fr [...]

Ender’s Game: Racist Edition

6/24/2018
More
This week, Trashfuture discusses some of our favourite topics: Elon Musk’s non-working cars, by-elections in Lewisham, and MAGA-supporting tech villains trying to augment Trump’s ICE atrocities with new gadgets — because what is more American than victimising immigrants whilst never leaving your gaming chair? This was recorded about ten days ago, which you can mark by all of our completely inaccurate football predictions. Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani) and Milo (@Milo_Edwards) kept...

This week, a slightly-not-quite classic Trashfuture crew of Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Nate (@inthesedeserts) got together in the Caliphate of Tower Hamlets to speak with Felix Biederman (@ByYourLogic) about quintessentially British things: Love Island, centrist columnists, archetypes of idiots, and horny right-wing obituaries.

More
This week, Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Milo (@milo_edwards) are back in the studio in the Caliphate of Tower Hamlets recapping centrist and extremist idiots’ absolute dumbest takes on the Irish referendum results. They cover Christian ISIS, Classical Athenian democracy, and a lot of busting jokes. The gang also discusses Tommy Robinson’s recent legal issues, what sort of business literature is worth reading, and — as always — the ontology of soup and sauce. We live in...

Riley’s Commie Book Club: People of the Abyss

6/1/2018
More
It’s that time again. Riley (@raaleh) grabbed a book, grabbed a mic, and opened up People of the Abyss, a 1903 book by American travel writer Jack London, about his experiences living in East London in that time. His observations on poverty, housing, inequality, capitalism, and imperialism are basically all analagous today. Enjoy! Also follow us on @trashfuturepod.

Hussein...

Trashfuture vs. The 8th Amendment

5/23/2018
More
This is a slightly more condensed episode in which the TF crew discusses an idiotic Sunday Times piece about ‘hipster fascists,’ but more importantly it’s an episode centred on the campaign in Ireland to repeal the 8th Amendment. Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Hussein (@HKesvani) speak with journalist Sirin Kale (@thedalstonyears) about Irish abortion laws, the impending referendum, and whether or not the uniforms of the royal wedding were inspired by Steven Seagal. If you’re...

Rich Lists, Rent Seeking, and Subsidized Royals ft. Grace Blakeley

5/20/2018

The Trashfuture crew welcomes back Milo (@milo_edwards), who managed to escape his FSB handlers and return to London unscathed. He and Riley (@raaleh) are joined by think-tank researcher Grace Blakely (@graceblakeley) to discuss the Sunday Times’s 2018 Rich List and the implications of its members’ rent-seeking behaviour for austerity Britain. They also got more than a little sloshed on wine, so you’ll have to forgive the, uh, strident moments. They also discuss the topic on everyone’s...

The Disease of the Western Mind ft. Karl Sharro

5/17/2018
More
This week, the full TF crew of Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Milo (@milo_edwards) speak with satirist and urbanist Karl Sharro (@karlremarks) about the backwards Western proclivity for conspiracy theories, their fondness for strongman rule, and why he sees a vibrant future for Occidentalist thinkpieces that cite one sole apocryphal London cab driver. Karl’s presence in the room raised the aggregate IQ for the Trashfuture franchise to an inordinate extent, despite our valiant,...

It’s this week’s TF for ya! Marcus Barnett (@reformedmuscle) came by to talk to Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@hkesvani) and Milo (@milo_edwards) about local elections, the psycho sexual mania of failure obsessed liberal pundits, and the future of the Labour party sans melts. While Marcus visits us in an entirely personal capacity, in his spare time he is Young Labour’s International Officer. Ably produced by Nate (@inthesedeserts). Vote for us in this dumb thing:...
