AQ Podcast #30: Welcome to the outrage wars. Through the lens of social media and current editorializations, we’re all scrambling for moral high ground in a hurricane of hyperbole as two broad-stroke mindset factions take hold, perhaps best represented in the contrast between Kanye’s “free thinking” emotion-driven bombastic assurance and the symbolic sledgehammer of cultural introspection that is Childish Gambino’s “This is America” video.
Bandwagon performance art replaces considerate thought, as memes take up the space where nuanced conversation once grew roots. Where does that leave us? That’s what we dig into in episode 30 of the Antiquiet Podcast.
We also cover & debate a good deal of new music, including albums from Arctic Monkeys, Janelle Monae, A Perfect Circle, Father John Misty and more. Additionally, Johnny regales us with the details of a motorcycle crash that’s left him broken and wheelchair-bound for the next few months.
