The crew discusses the inevitable Jewish civil war between the surge of nuclear families (zionism) and cringe polycules (New York cultural secularism.) I think we also advocated for a Hot Hot Heat revial, but that might have been the paywalled episode, you can find that here. Wow! Every day is an adventure with Art and Labor 2!~~~~ 😀

We brought in writer and certified Canadian Graham (@GrahamSig) to discuss the bittersweet bummer that is the current state of the Toronto Comic Arts Festival. He shares over 10 years of TCAF memories with us, which is extremely helpful to the analysis we’ve been trying to pull out of our asses about the YA-ification of comics. Lefty artists are losing the battle of gentrification, is it possible to change the material landscape and maintain a creative community’s integrity under capitalism? Or are we building the bones for the next Vegandale? We also go on several tangents about a new atheist k-8th.

I’m just asking questions- what if it all turned out to be lead the whole time? Generation theory: just lead? 20% chance of causing runaway climate collapse in this century, and people really want to get on our ass because of an insatiable desire (well, technically very satiable) to eat a Blake straight from the humidity-controlled archival reading room underneath the Seagram building? This week on Art and Labor: unspeakable tragedy, how artists fool themselves into thinking existing power structures give grants to people who’d threaten them. Rethink your entire practice, hon! Long live the hot dog fart zine scene!

OK gives Sarah a full Toronto report: new Kids in the Hall p good, Canada does not understand iced coffee or hanami, “New York” mode is real and you can harness it to mixed success, and alt comix lanlord art appears as TCAF is being shock doctrine’d?? We eventually get to our review of Everything Everywhere All at Once, which is obviously “it’s actually not insane enough.” History will reveal why Lucia has not been able to be on the podcast lately. Mostly, work sucks, everyone knows, why not enjoy some nice AU fanfic, it’s not gay to dream….I promise….

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!
