OK enlisted two of his favorite One Piece freaks—fashion designer and DJ/Producer of Str8 to DVD Sam Branman, and cartoonist August Lipp—to talk critically about the most popular series on the planet who many (present company included) have enjoyed for 15+ years. Although the movie is a big commercial for a vtuber, it has a lot to offer about the false consciousness and cults of personality technology produces both in and outside of the state. We also discuss the theory crafting industrial complex, the series’ shortfalls when it comes to queer characters, and speculate if the distribution companies have censoring power. Spoilers for both the movie and the current arc of the manga!! If you like the podcast and want more, please consider supporting us: https://www.patreon.com/artandlabor.

Sorry sorry, we aren’t trying to delete him. What is it going to take? We’ve been talking about the governor’s abject failures for years. The newest on the list is invalidating 21% of the primary votes and announcing the reopening of schools with no real plan for protecting employees and students. The corporate media has his (and Trump’s!) back of course, but how much longer can the ruling class keep up the charade? We also discuss Beirut and the geopolitical fallout after the explosion.

lmfao, that title makes this episode sound insufferable, but it’s excellent trust me. Lucia is watching One Piece!!! Holy shit, this is about to be the place for One Piece political analysis. We discuss how many people have achieved a certain level of class consciousness, but aren’t sure how to act on it, and how that feeling expresses itself in fiction through the possibilities of “magic” powers. We also dip back into the social capital, clout, cancel culture, and media criticism dumpster. It all ties together with a except from TJ Clark’s “The Painting of Modern Life” If you like the podcast and want more, please consider supporting us: https://www.patreon.com/artandlabor.

We went to many events so you didn’t have to. We discuss the Festival Workers Association born during the many controversies of this year’s Small Press Expo. While OK was in Maryland Lucia went to the Marx@200 show at Verso Books, which was a celebration of Peter Frase’s new book “The Four Futures” and included Alfredo Jaar’s piece that is only ever revealed on September 15th. Finally, we discuss an episode we recorded after the W.A.G.E. Rager we attended at Artist’s Space that we’re probably abandoning for being “too drunk” There’s a big chunk about One Piece too!
