It's The Void, Folks

No guest this week, as the boys instead sit down solo to discuss the nihilistic right wing death cult that’s getting whipped into an upward spiraling murderous frenzy by the extremely respectable media. Why do they all rush to distance themselves from the things they encourage their readers to do? Why is it that when we make up a fake Brendan O'Neill article, the real Brendan O'Neill writes it basically verbatim? Do you want more Commie Book Club?

*Unlocked* Riley's Commie Book Club - 'State of Insecurity'

It's that time again! In an unlocked bonus episode, Riley read a book, drank some wine, and is ready to talk about it to you fine people. This month, we're looking at State of Insecurity by Isabell Lorey, available now on Verso. It's all about precariousness and how neoliberalism has turned us into our own disciplinarians. Check out the book here: Do you want more Commie Book Club? Access this month's episode (an examination of the...


The Wetherspoons App Is The Highest Stage of Capitalism ft. Mark Watson

This week, Riley (@raaleh), Hussein (@HKesvani), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum ) speak with comedian and writer Mark Watson (@watsoncomedian) about the Adam Smith Institute’s newest declaration: the that Wetherspoons app is the pinnacle of human achievement. Did you know that you can order peas to anyone, at any table at any Wetherspoons pub in Britain? Oh wait, publicly-owned buildings? Never mind those, get the damn peas. You can access Mark...


*Preview* Trashfuture Presents: Balthasar Speedboat 3

This is a promo of this week's Patreon bonus episode. We're back in the saddle for yet another edition of Balthasar Speedboat. This episode features Riley, Milo, Nate, Alex Kealy (@alexkealy), Olga Koch (@rocknrolga), and Pierre Novellie (@pierrenovellie) -- and covers the usual spectrum of topics (but mostly Michael Jackson). Did you know Riley apparently sheds hair as a defensive mechanism? Did you know that Richard Nixon was convinced that gays brought down the Roman Empire? All this can...


Billion$ feat. James Meadway

We live in a blessed time, a truly wise era of human history in which Kylie Jenner’s cosmetics front company is somehow valued at $1 billion USD. Now, this is not a good thing, and special guest James Meadway (@meadwaj) -- an economist, writer, and former adviser to John McDonnell MP -- explains why this is just one symptom of the morass in which we find ourselves, and why recovering an oppositional style of politics is more important than ever. This episode features all of the Trash lads...


“It Just Means ‘Ignorant Person’” feat. Alex Kealy

Friends, we at the Trashfuture podcast do not in any way want our jokes to become real. We don’t want Elon Musk to control the internet with a submarine like the Sons of Liberty in Metal Gear Solid 2. We don’t want Matt Hancock to parkour his way into our phones with a mandatory app. But we always knew in our hearts that the essence of conservatism is “why can’t I say the n-word.” And that latter item happened this week, as certified normal person and author Lionel Shriver wrote exactly that...

Riley and Milo sit down with Will Stronge, director of Autonomy and one of the principal authors of the four day work week report (linked here) that’s been generating so much interest lately.

The Labour Splittacular feat. Mollie Goodfellow

A new party formed, except they’re not a party, and they don’t have policies, and their logo makes them look like a store where you can buy a £10 cup of juice. That’s right, we’re talking The Independent Group on this week’s episode. Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Nate (@inthesedeserts) spoke with comedy writer Mollie Goodfellow (@hansmollman) about the Labour splitters and their delightful approach to ideology versus facts. Please bear in mind that your...

In a preview of this week's bonus episode, Riley and Milo sit down with Will Stronge, director of Autonomy and one of the principal authors of the four day work week report (linked here) that’s been generating so much interest lately.

Nostalgia Avengers: Infinity WW2 feat. Owen Hatherley

We love Britain and British things. We’re a podcast suffused with the Blitz Spirit, the Dunkirk Spirit, the Dying of Black Lung Spirit, and in honour of that, we decided to take on the big issues of modern Britain, such as the following: some rich people tried to sue the Tate Modern because they didn’t want to buy curtains. This week, Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Nate (@inthesedeserts) spoke with Tribune Magazine culture editor Owen Hatherley...


Failure to Launch feat. Hasan Piker

We did it. We streamed our podcast live. Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Nate (@inthesedeserts) managed to successfully host a live video podcast while speaking with Hasan Piker (@hasanthehun) on Twitch. We discussed the abortive (to put it mildly) launch of Turning Point UK. Just who are the weirdos that fund it and support it? Why are they all part of weird Oxford racism societies? And why is Candace Owens praising Hitler? Please bear in mind that your favourite moron lads have...


UNLOCKED Riley's Commie Book Club: The Blurst Is Yet to Come

Riley's Commie Book Club is a bit different. This time, Riley speaks with scholar and author Peter Fleming — you might recognize the name from a previous episode discussing his book 'The Death of Homo Economicus' — and this time they cover the subject of Peter's new book, 'The Worst Is Yet to Come: A Post-Capitalist Survival Guide.' Peter Fleming is a professor at the University of London and the University of Technology, Sydney. He is the author of several books, including The Mythology of...


Somewheres, Anywheres, Sex Nerds feat. Bryan Quinby

Another week is upon us, and that means another Silicon Valley company has reinvented loan sharking. Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), and Olga (@rocknrolga ) reached out to someone with extensive knowledge in how payday lenders screw over the poor: Bryan Quinby (@MurderBryan), host of Street Fight Radio in Columbus, OH. They discuss a loan-sharking payday lender for your rent, and the liberal fixation on books like J.D. Vance’s “Hillbilly Elegy” and its British equivalent, David...


*Preview* Trashfuture Presents: Balthasar Speedboat 2

It was admittedly a shock to all of us that any of you liked our previous Balthasar Speedboat show. However, you did, and as such we've decided to revisit it with a new episode. You can hear Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Olga (@rocknrolga ), Alex Kealy (@alexkealy), and Charlie Palmer (@cfppalmer) for a near hour of riffs. Did you know the British had a song in World War II dedicated to Hitler's balls? Did you know that's actually body shaming? All this and more, on Balthasar...


Privatise the NHS, My A$$ (I Won’t Privatise the NHS) feat. Rob Delaney

It was a usual Friday afternoon in the Caliphate of Tower Hamlets. Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Olga (@rocknrolga ) were minding their own business when a man walked in with a baby. That man was Rob Delaney (@robdelaney), comedian and star of ‘Catastrophe’ on Channel 4. We discussed a terrible service that aims to provide feudalism in education, NHS privatisation plans, and why all of Matt Hancock’s acolytes can’t seem to stop taking...


*Preview* Into the Brexit Mind Palace feat. George Eaton

In a preview of this week's bonus episode, we're taking you to a brain expansion dimension that you've never visited before. Riley, Hussein, Milo, and Alice join special guest George Eaton (@georgeeaton), deputy editor at the New Statesman for a discussion of the HBO / Channel 4 feature film 'Brexit' starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Dominic Cummings. Sure, it's bad, but is that really so surprising? We delve into it with the keen insights that you've come to expect from us. Want to listen...


The Original Big Fella feat. Joel Golby

The inmates are in control of the asylum today. Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani) are joined by Joel Golby (@joelgolby) to discuss his new book, ‘Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant: Modern Life as Interpreted By Someone Who Is Reasonably Bad at Living It.’ However, we also discuss London real estate, Caroline Calloway’s Instragram reign of terror, eel and pie houses, and Bam Margera's big uncle Vito. *BUY JOEL’S BOOK*...


UNLOCKED Riley's Commie Book Club: The End of the Transition Paradigm

2018: A Year of Brain Expansion Part 2 of 2 (feat. Simon Childs)

This is part 2 of a 2-part extended recording in which your diligent hosts review a year that was bad. Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Nate (@inthesedeserts), join Vice UK home affairs editor Simon Childs (@simonchilds13) to discuss 2018, the year our brains got so irradiated by dumbness that we began appreciating Joker memes in earnest. Please bear in mind that your favourite moron lads have a Patreon now. You too can support us here:...


2018: A Year of Brain Expansion Part 1 of 2 (feat. Simon Childs)

We’re leaving negativity behind in 2019. Instead, we’re getting up early each morning to jog 10 miles while playing influencer audiobooks at 2x speed. However, a lot happened in 2018, and we at least need to discuss it. This week, in part 1 of a 2-part episode, Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Nate (@inthesedeserts), join Vice UK home affairs editor Simon Childs (@simonchilds13) to discuss 2018, the year our brains got so irradiated by dumbness that we began...
