Shoot the Dancing Bear!


Three disparate men converge for a strange discussion of pop culture and politics. Our hosts include a psychonaut therapist with an aim to explore the healing benefits of drugs, an anarchist philosophy professor equally influenced by Marx and prison, and an English teacher terrified by the universe but energized by marginalized literature and media alike. Topics will cover the range from popular to degraded culture.

We begin with the effect of memes on society and simplistic opinion shaping, environmental collapse, and the role of automation in relation to the worker. ROBOTS ARE COMING FOR YOUR JOBS!
