Ep 08 - Kool Kollected Kellie breaks the internet

This week, Nur & Liam dive into a week of American decline with several horrifying totalitarian developments including Officer Dick For Brains of the Anaheim PD almost killing a group of children and somehow getting worse. 
Then, Conservative party leadership hopeful Kellie Leitch has blessed our great nation with 9 minutes of robotic proto-fascist entertainment. Liam & Nur discuss their lack of hope in PM Joe Trudeau to head off this rise of conservatism, and what this means for Canada; they take a look at a new social media campaign attempting to change Canadia politics, and why it fails HARD.

Ep 06 - Joe Trudeau

Oh man what a week. Liam can't believe he has to explain why normalizing nazis isn't a-ok, but here we are.
Then, Trump meets Canadian PM Joey Troods for an epic handshake; does this bode well for Joe's control over the country? Probs not, Liam & Nur get into why.

Ep 05 - Trust Issues

This week our thoughts are with those affected by the recent white nationalist terrorist attack in Quebec. 
Next Liam and Nur are super disappointed, but not surprised, about Justin Trudeau's decision to pick up his ball and go home. Then, is it really somebody's house if they aren't living in it? London, England's wealth hoarders have a surplus of property that some LEGENDS are putting to good use. Finally, a Trump theory that explains his many gaffes--and doesn't bode well for the future (link below).

Seizing the Memes (Interview)

How do you fight an ideology of memes? Better memes, of course. 

In an age of Pepe pins and 'just joking', Grayson English makes 'propaganda of the feed' that takes aim at white supremacists, misguided liberals, and even his own anarchist circles.
In this interview, he joins Liam Scott for a discussion on the rising value of memes as a political currency. How far can image macros take us in the culture war, and what's next for Bad Memes and the left under Trump?

Ep 04 - First Impressions

In this episode, smashed windows, punched Nazis, and white feminists abound as Liam & Nur survey the damage of Tr*mp's inauguration weekend. Then our hosts look to the future and things get HEATED. Do we keep banging our heads against the wall of liberal democracy? Or do we go bang our heads against walls further to the left?

Liam & Nur reel from the news that Kevin O'Leary, the man currently tied for second most popular Shark Tank judge, will be running for leader of Canada's Conservative Farty (sic).
Then, they mentally prepare for the inauguration of He Who Shall Not Be Named, and give their takes on Pissgate and its ensuing mayhem. Plus: Young Thug being a jerk??? yes. it's true.

Ep 02 - New Year’s Revolution

Happy new year! Liam & Nur kick off 2017 by finding their political identities on the political compass test, which Nur unfortunately fails. Then they survey the rubble of 2016 and make their resolutions for the coming year, which include: yelling at white liberals, staying in lanes, and self-improvement through memes & literature.
