You are marooned a desert island with a few books and records. Fast forward three years. You now rule the island with an iron fist. But what laws will you enact? What will you ban? Each week, comedian Jacob Hatton interviews a new castaway from the worlds of science, journalism, politics and entertainment and asks them about their own personal island. Will it be a utopia or a nightmare?

What the hell is going on with equity markets? Why is Tesla worth so much despite doing so little? Why has the line divorced itself from reality, and how long has this trend been happening? To answer this question, we brought on Joe Weisenthal (@TheStalwart) of the Odd Lots podcast at Bloomberg to discuss. If you want access to our Patreon bonus ep…

For our first episode of 2021 we're joined by the one and only Glenn Greenwald to discuss the January 6th riots at the DC Capitol Building and what the media reaction to them can tell us. In particular we focus on the long term plan to codify "domestic terrorism" as a federal crime and speak about why it is so disturbing to see so many embracing wa…
 
This week, we've brought on Tom Sexton and Tarence Ray of the Trillbillies Worker's Collective podcast (@thetrillbillies) to discuss the recent events in Washington: the US Senate flipping to the Democrats (and thus empowering Joe Manchin, the West Virginia Democratic Senator who never met an opioid company he didn't love), and of course some other…
 
Unlocking this episode in light of Parler et al being banhammered by the rest of the internet. This episode is all about the history and economics of one of the most strange and resentful subsectors of the tech industry: tech companies started by right wingers and grievances. Original Copy: Have you heard the story about right-wingers who decide to…
 
Have you heard of a book called 'Nudge'? have you heard of 'nudge theory'? Well, we've dug into and -- believe it or not -- it's so deeply stupid that we had to make sure to discuss it on here as part of our Intelligence series with Chapo Trap House's Felix Biederman (@ByYourLogic). Hope you enjoy! If you want to listen to the whole thing, get it o…

Enjoy our holiday roundup featuring Riley, Milo, Hussein, and Alice -- with special guest (and YouTube Zone star) Devon (@Devon_OnEarth).

We're off this week, but we've unlocked our Netflix Part 2 episode for you to enjoy. We brought on Jathan Sadowski (@jathansadowski) and Ed Ongweso Jr (@bigblackjacobin) from This Machine Kills Podcast to discuss the famously sane and healthy workplace culture of Netflix with Riley, Milo, and Alice. Guess what? It's bad. And it's probably coming to…
 
On this festive Britainology we are joined by Alice to discuss the 1982 Falklands War. Why has it permanently lodged in the psyche of the Boomers? Why do people care about these rocks in the middle of the South Atlantic? Why did a British task force commander decide to explode himself in order to dislodge a machine gun position? You will be able to…

It sure is great we solved music piracy! How did we solve it? Well, by enriching two Swedish men and ensuring that only a handful of artists see any revenue from their music when it’s streamed. We are, of course, discussing Spotify -- and we’ve brought on Dan Boeckner (@DanBoeckner) of the bands Wolf Parade (@WolfParade) and Operators (@Operators_B…

We did a deep dive into the ways in which being a Tory donor means you'll get massive, no-bid contracts for government services -- even if you massively fail at providing them over and over again! To help us understand, we brought on investigative journalist and friend of the show Henry Dyer (@Direthoughts) to discuss. If you want to hear the whole…
 
First, very sorry for the audio issues with this. At the moment I'm confined to video conferencing using whatever my guests can get hold of and I tried to reset some of it, and managed to do a bit of damage to the file. Please do bare with us though because this was a properly fascinating conversation. Elizabeth Dennis-Harburg is a Labour Concillor…
 
Riley had to move! Andrew has children! Many things caused the delays in this penultimate episode of the Boney Island Whitefish, but trust us: it was so boring as to be undiscussable. So instead, Andrew and Riley have a pleasant conversation looking back on the show and some elements of our own lives. (This episode of our show isn't sucky, but the …
 
We are joined by George Pearkes, macro strategist at Bespoke Invest and all around financial funnyman, to peek under the hood of the world's largest owner of assets: BlackRock.

David Adler and James Schneider of Progressive International go deep into Amazon What *actually* is Amazon? How does it work? What on earth is Amazon Explore?

We talked so much about the Netflix-produced Mark Wahlberg Boston Cop film SPENSER CONFIDENTIAL. What a great punchline! What an absurd concept to declare that 85 million people had watched it. Anyway, we realised that we had to actually view the film in order to complete the cycle, so we brought on Olga Koch to review it with Riley, Milo, and Alic…
