John Roskam, an Illustrated History of the Hapsburg Dynasty, and some new things to call people for a new decade
Imagine if John Roskam from the Institute of Public Affairs was in a Gwar cover band that did NOTE-PERFECT renditions of Gwar songs but they did them in their stuffy IPA suits instead of in stuffy monster suits. But when he was hanging out at the IPA talking about how freaking great a free market is he would always wear a giant mutant lobster costume.

I’m sick. Too sick for podcasting. That is why there has been no podcast for two weeks. I have thrown up some bonus material we had to keep you satisfied but I worry it isn’t enough. Nobody self-harm over this, okay! I will be well soon!
Here is a track off Pobjie’s new album. It’s quite droll!
Here is an excerpt from my 3CR show. It has a brief discussion of capitalism and monarchy, then an interview with a secret ALP insider. A must listen for any ‘political wonks’.
Just right click that shit, sausage dogs.
I have decided that instead of everyone calling each other things like ‘dude’, ‘hombre’, ‘dogg’, ‘man’ etc. we will have to have some new things to call each other.
I propose ‘sausage dog’ for just general neutral calling people things. If you want to dial the friendliness up a notch you can call someone Jupiter Jones. For example, ‘Catch you round the junkyard, Jupiter Jones!’
If you want to insult someone, call them Encyclopedia Brown.
Fuck that boy detective.
