Iconic bald guys Marshall and OK are back, and this week they rant poetic about physical media. Who is speaking with authority? Is it us? Is it Tavi Gevinson? Is it the New York Times? Is it whoever is telling the New York Times to censor certain words and whoever is telling Tavi to pay minions $25/hr to distro free sponcon for Taylor Swift? Is it Taylor Swift? If you’re a Swiftie you have to tell us. Hopefully we get some of that sweet new album SEO!

(sorry for bad mic this ep) OK and Sarah warm up the engine a little with a conversation leading from, and leading to, the ethnic cleansing going on in Gaza as we
speak. What is to be done? We weigh the options- mostly, do what you
can, some of which is going to involve the heavy and uncomfortable
work of shittalking a list comedians. how could we ever carry such a
burden! Are you favs on the good list or the bad list?

If you want to send money, there’s a million places, but we’ve donated
to Medical Aid for Palestinians: https://www.map.org.uk/donate/donate

We’re preaching to the choir here most likely, but please don’t be
afraid to speak out- there are lives to be saved

Hey friends! Send your confused relatives #8toAbolition. The best the democrats can do is pretend to ban chokeholds, it’s sickening. We must counteract the Deray-ification of activism, support longstanding anti-gentrification tenants rights orgs in your neighborhood. We talk about all that stuff plus the tricky balance of participating in the protests and staying safe from the second covid wave as well as the disagreements between the more communist or more anarchist wings of the left (and I GUESS the social democrats and liberals).

Go to the 3rd Anti-Columbus Day Tour: https://www.facebook.com/events/235077237185003/ We build on our “Artwashing and Soho” episode using our direct experiences and observations of gentrification in our neighborhoods. We do a “Goofus and Gallant” for anti-gentrication art. Shoutout to the locals, but also these thoughts can be applied all over the place. It’s a layered topic, but I think we illustrate our points well even though I have a bad cold.
