Also: Reason videos galore!
I suspect that Josh’s recent episodes in which he fails to applaud the righteous freedom fighters of Hamas, says Israel should exist, and converses with Mossad employee Eli Lake did not help his case in the eyes of the ABC.
This is (not quite) apropos of nothing, but since I don't know how many other Argies are lurking around here, I just wanted to let all of you magnificent bastards know that Javier Milei won the elections down here. Crazy muhfugga actually won. We got a Libertarian in the door. WTF.
I see you liked my sky news article.
As soon as I heard he had quit I rememberes his recent fifth column appearance.
Josh is a big loss for the ABC, and it shows in the praise he's received from people who are usually hostile to public broadcaster. But he's much better suited to podcasts anyway.
What the fuck has Josh got against kale? FAG!
Consider me a paid subscriber ya Cunt!
For one brief moment I misread it as Szeps joining the "independent pedosphere" and thought "hmm, no doubt losing a job sucks but how's that gonna help?"
That United Red Army movie sounds/looks amazing - almost want to call in sick and watch it; looks to be available for rent on Amazon at least:
Speaking of the era, sad to hear today of some notable deaths:
Soviet defector Viktor Belenko who landed his MiG-25 in Japan in 1976, then moved to the US:
Rosalynn Carter, who became First Lady in 1976, and was actively involved with her husband:
Karel Schwarzenberg, Czech Prince, key player in the Velvet Revolution, saw the end of the infernal cold war and part of Czech politics afterwards.
And one of the great Browns - George - drummer for key era band Kool and the Gang:
Additional outro video:
Javier Millei, anarco-capitalist / libertarian, just won the presidential runoff in Argentina. A most interesting experiment starting on December 10th. Pay attention compañeros.
"Committed to getting problematic people out of the organization".
The epitaph for the planet Earth.
Not sure who in the Midwest needs to know this but favorite Welch name-dropped X/Twitter feed source of joy Ricky Cobb of https://x.com/Super70sSports?s=20 Super70s Sports has a live Comedy show Weds Dec 13th at Fitzgeralds in Berwyn. I persuaded my wife to join and encourage any Chicago-based FifDom seditionsists with GenX insensibilities to join us. https://www.fitzgeraldsnightclub.com/event2/13718818/the-super-70s-sports-comedy-road-show-w-ricky-cobb-jash-karp/
Yacht rock. Definitely yacht rock.
Where's that Audio of the "Uncomfortable Conversations" episode. It was floating about. Since he quit, I say release the tapes.
Going to have to cancel my Netflix subscription to free up some money for all the podcasts I've been subscribing to recently. Good luck, Szeps!
Sail On is such a fuckin jam. From the Mick and Keith style 2 part harmony in the verses, to the kind of weird syncopated post chorus section......and then when you thought it couldn’t get any better....here comes a sing along coda with strings, horns and a fuckin woodblock!
Since it seems like this story won't get read on the air at this point, I'll share it here:
In light of the recent praise for Jane Goodall, I would like to share a story that, in my mind, makes here even greater.
My wife has a PhD in animal behavior that she got studying chimpanzees. Part of her field work was done in one of the Jane Goodall sanctuaries in the Congo (the safer one, not the "Democratic" one). While she was there, Dr. Goodall came for a week to check in on the sanctuary. This was about a decade ago, so she was about 80 at the time.
Well, it turns out that Dr. Goodall is a Scotch drinker, specifically: Johnnie Walker Red, and she never travels without a bottle with her. So the first evening, she walks into the lounge area where my wife and the other researchers are hanging out and asks "Who will have a whiskey with me?"
Well of the 4 people in the room, one was a recovering alcoholic and one was an underage undergrad who couldn't recognize the appropriate time to break rules and I can't remember why the 3rd turned it down, so Dr Goodall turns to my wife and, no longer asking, says that she will have a drink with Jane. My wife, not being a dummy, of course agrees (again: not that she had much choice), and she then proceeded to share an evening Scotch with Jane every night that week.
My wife is a whiskey drinker to this day (although she eventually settled mostly on bourbon), and it's all thanks to Dr. Jane Goodall.
