In a world dominated by Capitalism, three intrepid Anarchist friends from the North Atlantic Archipelago (Ireland, Scotland and begrudgingly England) journey to find truth, socialism and a Zoom handle that doesn't involve poop.

BREAKERS is Shepherd Grey’s account of what life looks like after organized civilization crumbles as he and his faithful canine companion, Rommel, venture out from their home in Virginia to try and count themselves among the survivors. It has been several years since the outbreak began. The virus is just a sick and twisted part of life now. You test as much as you can, but there is no “preventing” it, only staying alive until you catch it. “Red you’re dead” is a phrase all too commonly heard ...

DOWN WITH BIG BROTHER Free thinking, critical thinking, alternate histo ...

America. Britain. Two nations locked in a race towards fascist dystopia. Two trans people, one from each side of the Atlantic ocean, join forces to shoot the shit in the face of overwhelming odds. Give them money, if you're brave enough. The artist formerly known as the trans atlantic podcast. Our name was stolen but it's all good, we're back with a vengeance.
 
I realize that for most of us it is extremely traumatic to fully grasp just how wrong this world has become. And that it is therefore much easier mentally and far more comforting psychologically to blame it all on the 'Left' or the 'Right'. But this podcast gives an interesting, thorough, and dispassionate analysis of just how and why we got to here from there. Further, by using established, mainstream science, it then presents a clear, complete, non-ideological picture of human behavior and ...
 
"Prophecy is not a prediction of tomorrow. It is a description of the doom contained within today."

Before that, a woman makes breakfast." The Greening of Blue England: "It took three-quarters of a ton of plastique to get rid of all the box stores in Taft Corners."

It's the end of the road for Disney+ & Hulu's Love, Victor, which is sad and disappointing.
