Socialist Ufologist MJ Banias exposes the truth about what's really going on at Area 51 and who the zoomer kyles are that claim they want to raid it. Afterwards he gives us an insider's look at the racism scandal within MUFON, the reactionary and liberatory aspects of paranormal phenomenon, and a hauntological deconstruction via Derrida of how UFOs are like communism.

Who better to pummel neoliberal common wisdom than the tribune of the swoletariat, @prettybadlefty? We speak with Chad Vigorous about his ethnographic studies on white people music, the infuriating/depressing debate about what is or isn't a goddamn CONCENTRATION CAMP, and liberalism's tendency toward rhetorical chicanery rather than actually addressing the issues surrounding class and race in US society.

In the aftermath of Sophie's brutal Twitter ratioing (The Night of the Dirty Legs), Andy decided we should revisit the classic essay "Washing... or Brainwashing" from Crimethinc's in/famous 2000 book Days of War, Nights of Love. We discover that nobles are savage, washing your landlords' blood off your shirt is bourgeois and that deodorant is capitalism negging you.
Mostly we are just sober and dumb and talking about eating human shit.

Sophie Weiner, night-editor of Splinter News and displaced poster, was back in NYC for a bit. We got her in studio to talk about politics in Australia and other oddities... for example, something good happened in Albany for once! We were also gifted with another lovely morsel of #content from media power couple Bari & Bill Weiss-Maher.
Mostly we had a fun discussion about electronic dance music (kids these days call it 'the raving') and how socialists can organize within the scene while inspiring our politics with the libratory potentials of it. All of this, of course, is anticipation of this week's publication of Sophie and Zoe Beery's new anti-capitalist dance music zine... PLURletariat. Enjoy!
