DS #105: MindWipe

October 7, 2017

This show is a little different. By popular demand, I have recorded an audiobook version of my introduction to mindfulness, MindWipe. So I'm sending it out through the stream. I hope it's useful.

If you'd like a free PDF of the book, a cheap Kindle version, or a slightly-more-expensive print copy, visit my website http://www.just-text.org

DS #104b: Richard Webster

June 24, 2017

It's the conversation too dangerous for live television. (Also I'm not allowed on television.) I sit down with my friend Richard Webster to dissect the concepts of white privilege, intersectionality, class warfare, and why capitalism is immoral. Join us with an open mind and let us know what you think.

DS #101: Hecka Rando

October 7, 2016

This week is a random mish-mash of stuff, from mindfulness to Trump. I haven't been saving news articles because the first month of school is always insane. But I still have things to talk about! 

We'll be back soon with a normal show filled with news stories about current events, war, human rights, economics, education, and hip-hop.

DS #100: Glamour, Guns, and Girlfriends

For our 100th episode, we've got something very special: Nothing! (We'll do something special, like a live recording, another time.) Instead, here's a fun-filled breakneck journey through Obama's feminism, Trump's psychosis, TayBot's love for Hitler, and awesome hip-hop from French-Chilean rapper Ana Tijoux. Enjoy!
