Episode 33 - Fursonas as Class Consciousness

More museum protests! We talk about Liberate Tate’s successful demonstration against BP in 2011, and how groups like Art Not Oil (@artnotoil) and BP or Not BP (@reclaimourbard) are continuing to fight against corporate sponsorship of art exhibitions. To be honest we mostly talk about music, fashion, fucked up real estate, and how much we hate cops. Super fun one!! We just wanna be cool blue guys!!

I tried to find the “Netflix of the Left” thing, but I can’t, maybe they deleted their bad idea? I left the little talk we had about it on the end of the episode cause I think it was good anyway.
