I Don't Speak German, Episode 4 - Unite the Right, the Aftermath

In this episode, Daniel tells me about the aftermath of the disastrous Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville 2017 (which we talked about last time).  We also get a tad more theoretical about some of the reasons for some of the behaviour of the so-called 'alt-right', and chat about some related issues such as the recent controversy concerning the Covington MAGA kids.

I Don't Speak German, Episode 3 - Unite the Right, Charlottesville 2017

In this episode, which runs a bit longer than the first two, and which goes to some very dark places, Daniel tells me all about the infamous Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, 2017.

The episode features discussions of violence, and we try to signpost when we're getting into the painful details.  But warnings definitely apply from the start.  We're discussing virulent racism and bigotry.

And here's the podcast's own website.

(Also, we're on iTunes and YouTube now.)

Of necessity, we're only glancing at this incredibly big and complex subject, so we're going to be coming back to many of the issues, organisations, and persons mentioned.

And here are some notes, sources, and references.

(Oh, P.S. Fun fact... Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dropped into Hbomberguy's Donkey Kong charity Twitch stream as we recorded this.)

I Don't Speak German, Episode 2

Nearly forgot I now have wednesdays to post whatever subsidiary stuff I have.

In our second episode, Daniel tells me all about former KKK Grand Wizard, "king of the angry Facebook grampas", and man who wrote an autobiography it took 42 hours for him to record himself reading, 'Dr' David Duke.

Download or listen here.

As ever, we're discussing fascism, racism and bigotry generally, so warnings apply.

 

New Podcast: I Don't Speak German

As many of you will know, our very own Daniel Harper has been researching the so-called 'alt-right' (really the far-right) for more tha two years now, listening to their podcasts and YouTube shows, documenting what they say to each other in their own spaces. 

This new podcast series - entitled (very cleverly, I think) I Don't Speak German - will be me in conversation with Daniel, giving him an opportunity to tell us what he heard.

We're discussing fascism and racism, so this podcast comes with big warnings.

Here's the first episode, on perhaps the best-known representative of the 'alt-right', Richard Spencer, his career, style, and ideology. The episode also touches on the origins of the term 'alt-right', the infamous 'heilgate' occurance after Trump's election, etc.

Our episodes will cover one 'topic' per show. We plan to keep the episodes as short as possible, and crank them out regularly (in direct defiance of our usual operating methods).

The next episode will be on a more old-school fascist, David Duke, former Klan 'Grand Wizard' who spoke at Charlottesville.

Please consider spreading the news about this new show.

These Podcasts Were Made for Listenin'

Hi, everyone. 

I don't have anything for you today, though I am currently tinkering with a couple of things that might end up being postable. 

But neither of those are ready yet, so or today I'll have to just point you towards a new episode of Consider the Ray Gun, the strand of WWA in which Daniel chats with someone about a book. 

This week it's Kit rejoining Daniel for a conversation about the early Richard Bachman (Stephen King) novel The Long WalkListen/download here

It's every bit as good as their recent episode on Ender's Game.

CtRG started as part of Oi! Spaceman, so previous episodes can be found here.

Happy New Year all.

 

 

Jack Considers a Christmas Reagan

Owing to a decided - and entirely understandable - lack of enthusiasm for the project from anyone else, I embarked on a solo commentary on the 1984 movie version of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, starring George C. Scott as Scrooge.  Luckily, I'm quite capable of wittering on for 90 minutes unassisted. 
 
So, here it is... a Christmas... treat for you?  I guess?
 
The movie is on YouTube should you want to watchalong with me.
 
Obviously, a commentary isn't an ideal way to analyse a text, so I left a lot of things out that I wanted to talk about.  So you may be getting more on this.  I've already written about it in passing here.
 
WWA did another CtR on a Christmas movie (though I understand this is a vexed question now) here.
 
Meanwhile, thanks everyone for reading my stuff this year.  And thanks for being such a great community.  And thanks to all those who've promoted my stuff by tweeting, retweeting, etc.  And special thanks to my lovely patrons.  They got advance access to this podcast.  If that seems like a ...
