True but that’s only limited time.

Where There’s Woke

Every single time the right, or even center-left, goes ballistic over a “woke” controversy, the slightest bit of investigation shows the scandal is almost entirely bogus. This is not a new phenomenon; it dates back decades. It’s an intentional tool used to protect the powerful and preserve the status quo, while further scapegoating and otherizing those who push for political progress. This podcast digs into not just today’s fake scandals, but those of yesterday and yesteryear. The terminology has changed some, but the pattern has not. Listen in as host Thomas Smith shines a light on the panic, the fragility, the overreaction, and the lying that ignites ‘Where There’s Woke.’

Can’t find a website for this show.

You should be able to edit anytime, though you will get an “edited icon” on the article after 10 minutes, but that’s fine.

Irritating that patreon is not one-boxing usefully. @codinghorror?

I’m down with a cold and found some time to listen to podcasts. The Economist has some interesting recent episodes of Babbage on AI out there. I would rate them 6 out of 10, but can recommend them for a commute or housework chores.

BBC Sounds reminded me I need to check if there’s a new series of Mark Steel’s in Town. He picks a town, interviews locals and historians and then does a stand-up set to locals.

I dunno, I don’t think Randy Newman is recording themes for just any old run-of-the-mill podcasters.
