Big Structural Self Discreditation may not be good sloganeering, but it seems an accurate depiction of the new turn in Liz’ political career. We set a time to discuss the electoral horse race for a maximum of 15 minutes, and then move on to discuss PILOT programs and how they are a factor in gentrification, with a case study of our beloved city of Troy. Then, we discuss how the Department of Defense has contracted illegally with local incineration facilities including the Norlite facility in Cohoes, NY to burn some seriously heinous chemicals. We talk COVID19 with the new declaration of a State of Emergency in New York, and for our wildflower we stan the Wuhan Gang of quarantined middle school kids who 1-star reviewed their homework app into oblivion.
We leave you with a few early tracks from Chris’ band Zombie Giuliani’s first album, and Brit’s narration of Kropotkin’s Conquest of Bread, Chapter 7, Ways and Means.

We are #blessed to talk with Jeremy Antley (@jsantley on twitter) to discuss gossip and rumor among imperial-era Russian peasants, and how rumor functions as power and as play. We also celebrate some monkey business down under.
Books referenced by Jeremy: Society Must Be Defended by Michel Foucault, The Play of the World by James S. Hans, and Gossip by Patricia Meyer Spacks.

CNN did Zaydee Bernie dirty and we won't stand for it. In this week's sedition, David sits down for an interview with Shuja Haider (@shujaxhaider) on new Twitter functionality that protects the powerful and the curation of the Obama Brand. Then we turn our attention to the Virginia gun control protests and the wild world of DIY guns. Then we end up where we started talking about Sanders endorsements, especially Albany's own @Thebarbarasmith!
