After an opening-weekend Black Panther showing, we discuss the catalysts for social revolution in a time of cultural upheaval. Kendrick Lamar created the soundtrack to the film, and for a project as important as this, his artistry is an important representative distinction from the hollow narcissism of someone like Kanye West.
Meanwhile, the gun debate has turned a page, alongside other important cultural hotpoints. We cover this in episode 25, as well as the sticky-situation involving a band of white guys called Black Pussy playing in Los Angeles, and the resulting lesson in privilege vs. passive misogyny.
We also look at the similiarities between actions & ideas spreading like a virus, using an epidemiological study of the 2005 French riots to understand the rise of fake news, MAGA fever and beyond.
Hope you dig it.
