Shabcast 19, Part 1


With Shabcast 18 vanished into the ether, this week we move straight on to Shabcast 19.  My now-frequent-interlocutor Daniel Harper of Oi! Spaceman stepped into the fray and helped me bring something in. 

We had a looooooooong chat about all kinds of shit, including (but not limited to) Prince, Chyna, sex and gender (of course), Marxism, neoliberalism, intersectionality, voting,Trump, lesser-evilism, Bush, the invasion of Iraq, strikes, the romance of revolution, TV you're scared to go back to, and the exciting future of Dan's own project - he and Shana are branching out to talk about other shows, such as Red Dwarf and Firefly.

The conversation was so long that I had to split it into two parts.  (It ends on a cliffhanger.)  Part Two next week.  There is, perhaps, some hubris involved in chatting for three hours+, recording it all, and then releasing it for strangers to listen to, and being so enamoured of almost everything you said that you basically refuse to edit... but hey, if I let things like that bother me I wouldn't be here.  And that'd be a shame, because I think we all agree that the internet can't afford to lose even one opinionated white man.

Download and/or listen here, my pretty ones.

Multiple hey-someone-else-remembers-that-90s-TV-series nostalgiagasm around that bit. Now I just need someone to namecheck Between the Lines and I'm done.

I would listen the hell out of that Homicide show. It would of course naturally lead into a series on The Wire, given the common ancestry.

All that talk about staying up late taping shows from Canada and the U.S. reminded me of how I would do that with UK shows like The Young Ones, Red Dwarf, The League of Gentlemen, and Black Books and of course nobody I knew watched those shows or had any idea what the hell I was talking about.
