We wake up in a nightmare of runaway neo-liberal capitalism and find ourselves wondering where the potential of Communist revolution is, and then we have to record a podcast about detective RPG Disco Elysium! In this lengthy conversation, we cover everything about what it means to make a world and say things through art, and whether Harry and Kim can ever truly find peace in such a broken world.
We are heavily indebted to the Waypoint Radio spoiler-cast over Disco Elysium for covering much of the game in advance and making our job easier in terms of getting into the weeds. We say so in the episode, but please listen to their podcast ideally before you listen to ours, as we reference it from time to time.
