163 - Groomer Pride w/ Joey De Jesus
/

OK catches up with fan favorite fourth mic Joey De Jesus (@DeJesusSaves) to talk Pride month, gossip about NYC local elections/budget woes, and the trap of Puerto Rican statehood. Would you join the Queer liberation army? There’s gonna be sparkly maces involved! Also we’re leaning into groomer, it’s gonna be a whole problem. The establishment dems are ruining the parades and forging their ballot signatures, gotta hate being stuck in this garbage party! Putting another big trigger warning for serious gun violence during the last part of this episode.

Episode 84 - Art Institutions Update

We discuss the bleak the state of art institutions. Schools and museums have been laying off staff without many cuts to executive pay or dips into endowments. They started with low level freelancers, moved on to anyone who to dared unionize, and are now making serious cuts to full-time positions. We use the viral gun-toting wealthy couple and their Louvre of a house to compare institutions to the democratic party—can they be reformed within capitalism, should they be abolished, and how?
