The Shabogans are the invisible underclass on Gallifrey. The plebs. The nobodies. The skivvies.  They're not the posh drop-outs.  They're not the soup-making rustics.  They're the unseen guttersnipes trapped inside the Capitol. They always leave the room just before you enter it.  They're the vandals who shoot stasers at the Seal of Rassilon. And maybe, sometimes, they do more than that. Maybe they riot. Maybe they erect barricades. Maybe they throw stones. Maybe they daub things like "GALLIFREY WILL NEVER BE HAPPY UNTIL THE LAST CASTELLAN HAS BEEN HANGED WITH THE GUTS OF THE LAST CARDINAL" on the walls of the Time Toilets. Because if there is hope, it lies in the Shabogans.

I'm Jack Graham.  Gothic Marxist.  Advocate of the struggle in terms of the strange.  Shakespearean villain.  Doctor Who fan.  Less an organic intellectual than a one-man morbid symptom. 

And I did this:

 

Shabcast 41.2 - Holly Explains Final Fantasy VII to Jack, Part 2

Here is the next part of the loooong discussion between myself and Holly Boson (@fireh9lly) in which Holly explains Final Fantasy VII to me, a total novice, in pitiless detail.

This episodes moves on from preparatory context to the basics of the game and its history, Holly's textual approach to the game, and such subjects as Cloud Strife, fandom, shipping, etc.

Content warnings apply from this point on because some potentially troubling issues are mentioned.

IDSG Ep76 Birth of a Nation

And so 2020 - notable mostly for being IDSG's second year - comes to an end.  This time, in a change to the advertised program, and with apologies for our absence throughout most of this last month, we return with another of our periodic movie discussion episodes, this time looking at D. W. Griffith's epic, lauded, infamous, three-hour, silent-era blockbuster of hate, prejudice, and bigotry, Birth of a Nation.

Content warnings very much apply.

The promised Part 2 of our coverage of Tom Metzger should be along as the first IDSG of the new year. 

Thank you all for sticking with us through thick and thin, sending us words of encouragement... and special thanks to those of you who helped us out financially.  Let's hope we all have a better one in 2021.  We have plans for the show in the new year, so stay tuned and stay safe.

Shabcast 41: Holly Explains Final Fantasy VII to Jack, Part 1

The first part of a new, multi-part Shabcast in which my brilliant friend, writer and podcaster Holly Boson (@fireh9lly), takes me on a journey into a realm of which I was previously entirely ignorant, the complex labyrinth that is the Final Fantasy series of video games, especially Final Fantasy VII.  

This first episode is an hour long and is just the preparatory context she needed to give me to set me up for the actual trip.

IDSG Ep 73 National Justice Party Program, Part 1

In this episode, the first of a two-parter, Daniel tells Jack all about the new 25 Point Program of the National Justice Party, the latest venture from Mike Enoch and the Right Stuff rabble, and their hope of peeling away support from disaffected leftists using 'Third Position' rhetoric.  Daniel starts going through the program point-by-point, analysing its hypocrisies and contradictions.  The 'left' rhetoric is exposed by comparison with genuine left ideas and principles.  To be continued... soon.

IDSG Ep72 The Social Network

This time, after a brief obligatory discussion of current events, Daniel and Jack take one of their periodic detours into film discussion to talk about David Fincher's 2010 movie The Social Network about Mark Zuckerberg and the founding of Facebook, and thus of so many of our current problems (not that the film gets that).
