R. U. Sirius

KMO and Silas welcome Mondo2000 co-founder, R. U. Sirius, to the C-Realm to reminisce about the naive cyber-enthusiasm of the 90s. Wired's Long Boom never came to pass, and virtual reality is just now taking baby steps, 20 years after it's arrival seemed imminent. The old guys try to encapsulate the wisdom of Uncle Bob (RAW) for the younger generation between songs from the Bandcamp "album" Alt - WRONG: The Degenerate Song Exhibition.

For the lulz.

Ben McLeish and KMO talk about season 3 of Black Mirror with particular emphasis on the episodes Shut Up and Dance and Playtest. An ongoing theme in Black Mirror is punishing wrongdoers in a way that is grossly out of proportion to their supposed crimes. The conversation will continue on this weekend's C-Realm Vault podcast.

crv224_coverBen McCleish joins KMO and Silas in the C-Realm to summarize and discuss the first two chapters of Ted Kaczynski's new book Anti-Tech Revolution: Why and How. This discussion mostly focuses on the why. Kaczynski may be a murderer, but he is no misanthrope. His aim is to defend human freedom and save all life on Earth from the relentless maw of the techno-industrial system. He thinks that the techno-sphere will render the planet uninhabitable by complex organisms and that reform and rational guidance are impossible. Only an anti-tech revolution stands any chance of preserving a life-sustaining planet.

Is that red patch getting bigger?

Is that red patch getting bigger?

Since the election of Donald Trump, we've heard the word "fascist" being thrown around rather freely. Does the shoe fit? The Angry Animator, Dermot O'Connor, joins KMO in the C-Realm to pin down the meaning of the word to see how it applicable it really is to the current state of affairs in the USA. The topic of the alt.right works its way into the mix, and KMO explains why he is more critical of the Blue tribe than the Red, even though he feels more at home and at east among the Blue tribe.

WOOL420While the 2016 Presidential election result was not to the liking of most progressives, the 8 out of 9 marijuana-related ballot initiatives that passed represent considerable progress in the move away from the war on the drugs. In this episode of C-Realm Radio, KMO and Silas welcome Matt Simon, New England Political Director of the Marijuana Policy Project. They discuss the 2017 prospects for ending prohibition in Vermont. Now that Maine and Massachusetts have lifted the criminal penalties for possession and use, perhaps Vermont legislators will find the moral courage they have so far failed to muster on this issue.

What, is it the last Wednesday of the month already? Must be time for the main C-Realm Podcast. In this month's episode, KMO welcomes Douglas Lain, publisher of Zero Books, back the C-Realm.
