Look, we’ve had a good streak going, but it’s finally here: our first bad episode in a long, long while. We’ll cop to it, this episode is a mess. Interference from foreign hackers interrupted our show not once, not twice, but like five times. It grates on the nerves a little. That said, we still try to cover as much of what’s going on as humanly possible. Russian mistakes. Chinese spying. Dave Chapelle. Millie Bobbie Bean. We’ve got most of that and some more crypto related things as well, right here on Zero Credit(s).
We’re pretending John’s back on this episode, so everyone pretend you can hear him as Henry finally delivers the great gift of Good Content unto him. What the heck does Disney’s Frozen have to do with an unsolved mystery dating back over 50 years? You’ll have to listen to find out. That and a brief stint into workers’ rights before Henry goes off about the ZA/UM Artist Collective dissolution for entirely too long, right here on Zero Credit(s).
Last week we made the executive decision to not discuss Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine, largely because it hadn’t happened yet when we were recording. This week, we decide to not discuss the warfare aspect as it seemed distasteful. What we are talking about is the absolute dogpiling on Russia that’s taking place across the world and internet. Also, John finally figures out what he’s allergic to and more, all right here on Zero Credit(s).
Gone are the lighthearted days of Black Panther and snippets of longer conversations about Monster Hunter. They have been replaced by a general anxiety of a (at the time) at large serial bomber terrorizing the city of Austin. Curtain aside, we recorded a segment on the Austin bombings on Tuesday and said bomber was apprehended (so to speak) in the early morning hours of Wednesday. We decided to still run the segment as a “moment out of time” sort of look at what living in a terrorized city feels like. Okay, curtain back, Facebook is heavily involved in Russian data-buying schemes, so delete your Facebook (app) and revel in these crazy often Russian tampered times. How do we be happy in these crazy times? Let’s listen to two somewhat depressed people who read about philosophy as a means of trying to find meaning in their lives try to make sense of happiness and these crazy times. That’s… a mouthful… but isn’t that what Zero Credit(s) is all about? Isn’t it? Someone tell me.
