Jamie and Sean are joined by superproducer Paul Channelstrip (@aufhebenkultur) (Antifada twitch channel, Everybody Loves Communism, many more) for a laid back episode about the zoo, a high profile bird murder, and the tendency of the rate of treats to fall over time. Why is the supply chain having a normal one and what does it mean for the current phase of capitalism?
You can watch this trio shoot the shit from 3pm-5pm ET every Wednesday and Friday at Twitch.tv/TheAntifada!

The madlads from TrashFuture are back! Sean is joined by Riley (@raaleh) and Nate (@inthesedeserts) to discuss the very public meltdown of, well, you know, the entire British civilization. As it turns out, things in the UK are even more bleak than they appear from across the pond: supply chains breaking down, petrol stations empty, services being cut, etc. But even more dire, and darkly funny, is the reaction of the British ruling class' which absolutely refuses to rule. Put on your schadenfreude caps before queuing up for this one.

Jamie and Andy are joined by Natasha Lennard (@NatashaLennard), contributing writer at The Intercept and author of "Being Numerous: Essays on Non-Fascist Life," to commemorate Occupy Wall Street's ten-year anniversary. What are people erasing when they remember Occupy solely as something that "changed the conversation" around wealth inequality? How did the occupiers demonstrate anarchist politics in action? And what lessons can we carry into the future as we fight not merely to shore up the system, but to overthrow it?
