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.
