Cold open: Agent Zuboff receives her mission.
Main show: We politically cancel Shoshana Zuboff, author of The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, for advancing / mainstreaming a reactionary critique. Surveillance capitalism is not a “rogue mutation” of a normal capitalism. Surveillance is not the scapegoat that needs to be sacrificed so we can maintain a good version of consumption and commodification. We let you in on a little secret—one that Zuboff’s work is designed to obscure—the real horrors have been coming from inside capitalism all along.

Millennials Are Killing Capitalism: “Wildcat The Totality” - Fred Moten And Stefano Harney Revisit The Undercommons In A Time Of Pandemic And Rebellion (Part 1)
This is part one of a two-part conversation with Fred Moten and Stefano Harney. Fred Moten is the author of In The Break: The Aesthetics of the Black Radical Tradition, multiple volumes of poetry, and most recently the trilogy consent not to be a single being. Stefano Harney is the author of Nationalism and Identity: Culture and the Imagination in a Caribbean Diaspora. He also co-authored The Liberal Arts and Management Education: A Global Agenda for Change with Howard Thomas, and State Work: Public Administration and Mass Intellectuality. In 2013, Moten and Harney collaborated on The Undercommons: Fugitive Planning and Black Study a text that has been influential to both Josh and myself. They graciously accepted the invitation to revisit this work, and their thinking in this time of pandemic and rebellion. In this first portion of our conversation, we begin a discussion of the undercommons, the Academy, the general antagonism, solidarity, empathy, whiteness, politics, citizenship, Blackness, and patriarchy. We hope you enjoy part one of this discussion as much as we did, and we will be releasing part 2 next week.
Susan Rogers, by her own admission, is a rare bird. A female producer and sound engineer in an industry dominated by men, her drive and commitment would land her side by side with Prince as his star soared. She came to work with him in Paisley Park as an audio technician right before he would begin Purple Rain, and she’d stay working with him and becoming his sound engineer through his commercial peak; recording Parade, Around the World in a Day, The Black Album, and Sign O the Times. But Prince isn’t the only part of Susan Rogers’ story. In 1988 she left Minneapolis, and would go on to produce some of the biggest hits of the 90’s before taking the money from that to go back to school, and become a Professor at one of the world’s most prestigious music schools. Her name is synonymous with Prince, but the story of how Susan got there, and what she did after this legendary collaboration, is just as fascinating. From finding her musical tribe as a kid in Orange County, to recording some of the most loved songs of all time, and diving into the neuroscience of why we connect with song, this is a brilliant conversation with a curious mind, and living legend.

Holly Buck joins me to discuss her new book, After Geoengineering: Climate Tragedy, Repair, and Restoration. We talked about why we may have little choice but to undertake geoengineering to avert the worst of the climate crisis. We also discussed the question of whether climate change is innately difficult for human beings to comprehend, and whether avoiding the worst effects of climate change will entail moving beyond capitalism.
