Download Radio Free Ruin Episode Alpha (26:21 min, 14.3 MB, mp3)
Radio Free Ruin is a radical talk show about tech, culture, and politics. Hosted by Paul M. Davis, the show is a freewheeling chat with activists, writers, leading thinkers, comedians, artists, and musicians about the week’s most important news and the burning topics that dominate these precarious times.
In the breaking news roundup: Journalist Michael Hastings declares the Afghanistan war “hopeless”, US Judge seizes hundreds of sites and orders they be handed over to Godaddy, Ron Paul’s candidacy reveals the failure of contemporary liberalism, the New Hampshire GOP deems the US Constitution insufficiently foundational, “Shit White Girls Say…To Black Girls”, and much more, including Obama’s alleged secret CIA mission to Mars in the early ’80s.
This is an “alpha” episode to work out the kinks, so no guests this time. Please forgive the sibilants and the audio artifacts, they will be fixed in future episodes. Thanks for listening, and check back next week for an episode with Malcolm Harris of The New Inquiry. We’ll be chatting about the relationship between Adderall, Occupy, and Gen Y.
