Episode 97 – PostTopia

What happens when the USPS goes away and our internet connections are unreliable and the electrical grid has been comprised? all freakin’ Hell breaks loose, that’s what.
Yes, tonight was a romp though our imagined dystopia with a side of wine. We didn’t go to full manic, crazy,fear—land. But we did touch on a few ideas about what things could look like and frankly, right now calls for the brand of creativity us GenXers are damn good at. A little analog fortune telling might just go a long way.

So, dear curious friends, prepare. Think ahead. Use your damn brain instead of the the damn inetwebs. Also, VOTE. Vote like your rights depend on it. vote like it’s the last time you’ll get the chance. Vote for democracy. Vote for your rights.

VOTE!!!!

Episode 96 – You Better Vote Mother F*ckers

In this episode we talk about John Lewis. Lewis passed away on July 17th from pancreatic cancer. He was the last surviving member of the Big Six leaders who organized the march on Washington for civil rights in 1963. He led the march from Selma to Montgomery in 1965 across the Edmund Pettus bridge when police attacked the unarmed, peaceful protestors in clouding Rep. Lewis among others. The gravity of his accomplishments are too profound for this post and should be honored with writing skills much better than mine. He was a great man, an inspiration and an asset to our country, to humanity. His work is ours now and there is much more to be done. Every one of us has the opportunity to honor his memory and his work, every one of us can walk with him, fight with him and sit with him. Protest, write letters, stand up for what’s good and right, talk about him and your beliefs practice your rights, cast your ballot.

Get out there and vote, motherfuckers.

Episode 95 – Nothing’s Normal

The shit tower is becoming too tall to traverse. The tipping point has come and gone. The point of no return is behind us. We’re in it waist deep and no one is going to save us but us.

Shit has gotten so out of control in America, we can’t keep up. Every day is another shit-storm of atrocities. Federal militia arresting peaceful protestors , COVID cases and deaths continue to climb. The EU, Mexico, Canada and the Bahamas have closed their borders to us because we can’t control the disease. Trump continues to insist the virus will “go away”, does not support masks or social distancing and insists we have “good death numbers”. He discredits scientists Last week (the week before? Time is more than fluid right now) a leak from the administration revealed the Russians put a bounty on American soldiers several weeks ago and trump has yet to issue a statement or suggest any course of action against Russia. He continues to lie, hold rallies and tweet falsehoods. He has been seen to be increasingly unwell in public appearances, swaying on his feel, slurring, unable to form cohesive sentences or hold water glasses with one hand. He retweets himself within hours. He’s a mess. He’s making the county a mess. No, he’s destroying the country.

So tonight we hash it out and try to find a course of action while preparing for the worst. Who do we look to for strength? How do we do this? Can we do it? Can we topple the Shit Tower. Yes. We. Can.

Thanks to all the peace-loving, freedom-seeking, fearless shit shovelers out there. Cheers!

Episode 94: Game Night! Whose Shit is This?

Game night! Who Said it – Barr or Scar, 2 Truths and a Lie and Who’s Shit is This? We also reminisce about the Reagan years when The GOP kicked policy to the curb to embrace power and greed. The endearing gaffes of Dubbya known as Bushisims, Anthony Weiner’s internet escapades; all of which seem like a million years ago. Ah, simpler times.

Yesterday the Supreme Court reeled in favor of anti-discrimination rights for LGBT a big win for sure but trump was suspiciously unconcerned, which is concerning but maybe nothing at all considering his West Point performance. Something is terribly wrong with him besides the obvious. So sad.

Episode 93 – Ice Cube Was Right All Along

We’re back!

We didn’t have a plan tonight. We didn’t need one – becasue we had a lot to talk about. This is just a a good old fashioned conversation about police brutality, protestors, fascists, white guys with guns and governmental ass-hattery with a generous smattering of profanity. Hopefully we are making great strides toward a better future right now but it’s painfully clear this is going to take a long time. Can we reclaim the people’s house in November? Will he go willingly? Will he hide in the bunker behind the baby gate? Are we facing another civil war? Who are we? Can we save ourselves? There’s so much uncertainty in the ether right now. Sometimes it’s too much to bear.

Take care of each other, and remember. Curio Podcast loves you!

Episode 92 – Who’s Gonna Guard Your Potatoes?

After Obama’s speech last weekend we decided to do a little comparison. I know it’s not fair to compare a constitutional law professor with an insecure, draft dodging, hamberder-eating, pathological liar and malignant narcissist, but here we are. And you know what? It’s not fair. It’s not fair that America had the opportunity to move forward with our democracy intact but instead it was hijacked by a bunch of whiny, entitled, dumbass racists who have forged a path of constitutional destruction.

Looking back at the Obama years I can’t help but to wonder if that was the last great American president. The last president who represented the America our fore fathers envisioned. The last president of our democracy.

We have fallen so far in the past 3 years. Where will we land? Will we be able to “pull ourselves up by the boot straps”? Are we witnessing the end of American democracy?

So many questions. But right now, today we still have our freedom and I’ll take take it, failing economy, pandemics and all.

Thanks to everyone who believes in democracy and isn’t afraid to fight for it.

Episode 91 – Drink Up, Trump

Tonight we explore the world of cults. Cass talks about Jones town and Kim chats about David Koresh. We also found out what it takes to be a cult leader and a follower which leads us to some unmistakable similarities in trump and his followers.

The word cult has been thrown around regarding trump and his loyal followers for a long time. It seemed almost taboo in the beginning but now it’s hard to overlook the maniacal loyalty required to continue to support him. But why? What causes a person to disregard truth, facts and even one’s own sense of morality so easily? Why would a person put their life at risk or the lives of their loved ones at the direction of someone so glaringly unstable, unethical, uneducated, power hungry and self-serving?

Episode 80 – Giganstiske Eggstokker!

Tonight we talk about some women what are taking the corona virus by the balls. Maybe taking others by the balls too, assuming they have any.

Cass showcases Gretchen Whitmer, Governor of Michigan and Kim talks about the female journalists who have stood firm while facing Trump’s demeaning and condescending remarks. Uti Patootie makes an appearance and births a few other fem gems who have led the way in proactive protection against the novel coronavirus.

Care taking is part of our collective identity for many women. It’s not a difficult decision to focus on the health and well being of people, it seems to be an intrinsic part of our being. Not that men don’t have the same urge but traditionally, it’s been the women who are the primary caretakers for those in need. Unfortunately tradition also dictates that women are “the weaker sex”, that women should be demure and agreeable to the men in charge. But one might argue that our care taking identity is rooted in biology but to be agreeable and demure are attributes forced on us by the “stronger sex”. Well, fuck that shit.

It’s time for women to reclaim the trajectory of society. It is time to topple the rank patriarchy hell bent on destroying the earth for the benefit of their own self serving urges and shortsighted imaginations.
