Episode 33: So Much Socialism or How The British Destroyed The World
Release Date: 06/15/2017
We’re back at the Deurty Boys gallery (901 Chartres St.) in the heart of New Orleans’ World Famous French Quarter to talk to you about… Chris Rose? Playboy Buddy Rose? Something… Oh actually the UK General election which happened the day before we recorded this. Alli is especially fired up. Varg is maybe a little skeptical not only of socialism but of British people in general.
Segment One (about 45 minutes)
Recapping the UK Elections and the political implications going forward. Is there a lesson for American politics or is everybody just fine? Interrupted only by some bead-wearing tourists barging into the gallery after hours oh and then by Menckles who just wants to go have a drink.
Segment 2 (about 30 minutes)
There are secret recordings of Varg talking to himself drunk and we are going to find them. Anyway, this part is all about the most recent spike in violent crime across the city, Mitch Landrieu’s neoliberal response and Leon Cannizzaro’s quasi-fascist response to said crime. Turns out the answer is it all comes down to socialism. Also we play an occupation-based names game. Menckles sneaks in a word or two. Cannizzaro writes to the editor in a Donald Duck voice.
