Hey podcastsiders, welcome to our brand new show! Each week we will compare and contrast episodes of Sex and the City and Gossip Girl. Join our journey through New York history, find love, AND labels. Don’t worry! Art and Labor isn’t going away, just on hiatus until we’re all well rested enough for new episodes about the cruel brutalities of our industries and governments. In the meantime, please enjoy cutting cultural analysis from two of your favorite city-loving fslurs, OK Fox and Eric Kostiuk Willams. You don’t have to watch the shows, plot is very secondary to our discussion, xoxo
Our Canadian/Britney correspondent (and brilliant cartoonist) Eric Kostiuk Williams is back! We wildly speculate on the Grimes Chelsea Manning e-girl royal wedding, and navigate the messy state of traveling in covid times. Western countries have clearly given up on virus mitigation, how are we taking care ourselves as we’re forced under demonic spell of 𝔢𝔠𝔬𝔫𝔬𝔪𝔦𝔠 𝔢𝔫𝔡𝔢𝔪𝔦𝔠𝔦𝔱𝔶? Plus a discussion of the dark money funded truckers/anti-maskers/anti-vax movements, HIV-AIDS criminalization, the hippie to big tech pipeline, and if its possible to untangle the militant nationalism around aid for victims for war.
ALERT: JOIN OUR SCHOOL! Art Business meeting is happening on Tuesday April 5th, and the next blender class with Niko is Sunday March 27th (both at 8pm est) Please reach out to join the discord for “Constructing the Real” NOW!

I have a particular love of songs about how much it sucks to be famous, and true story was the world’s worst English teacher at a summer camp in China and made a bunch of mystified 12 year olds watch the video for Lucky like four times in a row to do a really bad “fill in the lyrics” worksheet. Sorry, kids! Toronto correspondent and living comics legend Eric Kostiuk Williams (@kostiukwilliams) returns to A&L to discuss the ultimate woman posting her L, Britney’s court statement regarding her legalized criminal conservatorship. We also got a segment we call “Oh Right, What’s Canada’s Doing Aboot That?”, a small gag reflex-like aside on local NY politics, how freakin HOT it is, and of course at least 10 minutes on the impact of Toxic alone. Pop in the ol earbuds, get the sink going, and do your dishes with the gentle banter of your real life friends, Lucia, OK, and Sarah, this week on dragon ball z!
