It's been nearly 25 years since the original Cowboy Bebop first helped you convince your friends that anime wasn't just horny cartoons about tentacles and robots. So what do you do with a cool cultural artifact that has stood the test of time? Why grind it up into weeb sausage and barf it back up as a live action Netflix series, of course! Thank go…

A small number of tech companies have amassed enormous power in our modern world. Do they wield that power responsibly, or do they abuse it to benefit themselves? I talked to Tristan Harris, “the closest thing Silicon Valley has to a conscience,” to better understand what we can do about our social dilemma. This is… A Bit of Optimism. If you want t…
 
With the ink still drying on The Glasgow Pact, we’re already hearing the results from Glasgow being labeled in binary terms like “Success” and “Failure” While we know that some stunning pledges and progressive language in the Pact came from some of the negotiations, it is also true that historically these pledges have not been met completely, or ha…
 
Shawn and Jack are off living their lives, leaving us scrambling to give our listeners something to be thankful for this week. Steve supplied the turkey: Unidentified with Demi Lovato, a vapid reality show in which products of the Mickey Mouse Club seek to commune with extra-terrestrial life. Whether your brain has been poisoned by Disney or colloi…

Yesterday, nearly 200 countries agreed to adopt The Glasgow Climate Pact after a roller coaster of a COP26...and this is a really big deal. From agreeing to reduce global dependence on coal, to speeding up the end of fossil fuel subsidies, this is progress on paper. But how far does it go to keep our 1.5C target front and center? This week, our hos…
 
From small town Texas stripper to geriatric billionaire's wife, reality TV pioneer and denim spokeswoman, Anna Nicole Smith exemplified the American Dream in the 90s. She may have never broken into Hollywood completely during her short life, but ANS did leave us with a handful of DTV action films where she starred alongside notable thespians like J…
 
It's the halfway point of the COP26 climate discussions in Glasgow, UK! Pledges over the past week from world leaders could be transformational, keeping the Paris Agreement's ambition in reach. The devil is in the detail of delivery and, As we head into the second week of the negotiations, government Ministers and negotiators get down to business, …
 
Coming to you LIVE from Energy Day at COP26! So, energy and climate change. Where should we start? With both the IEA World Energy Outlook and the IPCC AR6 Scientific assessment that came out this year declaring that coal has peaked, we also know that gas and then oil must also peak and see their way to the museums, as Christiana would say. 1.5C has…

We’ll cover updated pledges and commitments on: An End to Deforestation by 2030 Methane reductions India’s Net Zero 2070 target We also get into inclusion and …
 
The way to Net Zero is through the bank. One of the major questions at COP26 is, “How are we going to finance the transition to Net Zero?” From shifting investments away from fossil fuels, to boosting the speed and scale of green companies bringing forward the necessary solutions to creating a sustainable future for people and planet. ...And profit…
 
China. On one hand, the country is the world’s largest source of carbon emissions, an economic and political powerhouse resting on a thick cloud of hydrocarbon pollution, contrary to the goals of the Paris Agreement. On the other hand, President Xi Jinping has set the stage for China to emerge as an environmental leader, with the highest reforestat…
 
Eric Marsh of The Gauntlet Podcast joins us as we wrap up our annual October dalliance with the macabre. This week we're taking a stroll through that old, crowded, grungy cesspool New York City, where the pizza lacks structural integrity and the blood of topless sunbathers rains down from the sky. Fuck Rudy Giuliani. This is Larry Cohen's town. THI…
 
If you haven’t heard, COP26 is about to happen. This week we embrace the complexity that is a COP (Conference of the Parties), and try to frame what is going to happen in the next 2 weeks so we don’t lose focus on limiting global heating to 1.5C. We’re joined by Communications Director of COP25 & COP26 Climate Champions, Matthew Phillips. Matthew i…

The Shawn Glinis 2021 Halloween Spooktacular marches on with four adaptations (maybe interpretations? films inspired by?

SHAWN GLINIS SPOOKTOBER 2021 kicks off with a pair of eccentric Lamberto Bava splatter flicks, Demons and Demons 2. We also take an ill-advised swerve into trying to figure out how many Demons sequels there are, which coincidently is a great way to track the trajectory of the Italian film industry from the mid-80s to mid-90s. At least it gives us a…

This time, focusing on climate change and its impact on the mental health and outlook on the future of young peop…
 
If a bipedal ape kills in the forest and no one has a GoPro, was a crime ever committed? Can great apes even be punished for capital crimes? Why won't Jack just acknowledge his love of Chicago's premiere retro-themed diner, Ed Debevic's? In case it isn't abundantly clear, we watched a pair of found footage sasquatch films to finally dip our toes in…
 
You probably heard last week was Climate Week and UNGA. But, what actually happened?

Our struggle with the Climate Crisis begins with naming it, facing it, and engaging it. Last week, the latest NDC Synthesis Report published showed that global emissions are on track to rise by 16% by 2030. With science screaming at the top of its lungs to get us to cut emissions 50% by 2030 to avoid catastrophic warming and climate tipping points,…

Today, only 15 percent of land and 7 percent of our ocean are protected. Nature needs more. The science is very clear – to prevent a mass extinction crisis, support a growing global population, and address climate change, we must conserve at least 30% of the planet by 2030. ...So why now? The science is very, very clear - If we act now we can limit…
 
Nia DaCosta and Jordan Peele liked our podcast on Candyman (1992) from a few years ago so much, they decided to resurrect the series with a direct sequel! They also pulled the classic move of trying to erase the two poorly received sequels from the film's continuity. We can't simply stand back and accept Tody Todd erasure. Join us as we examine the…
 
Season 4 is here! The past few months have been astonishing. It’s no news to anyone that climate change is here, right now. In fact, it’s reported by the Washington Post that in the US, nearly 1 in 3 people live in a county hit by a weather disaster in the past three months, and even more terrifying, 2 out of 3 live in a place that experienced a mu…

Stuart Paul has spent three decades creating mega-budget outsider art and his producer/agent brother, Steven, has been with him every step of the way. Turns out when he's not producing mega-blockbusters like Ghost in the Shell (2017) and Deadly Lessons (2006), Steven Paul is making films of his own. Is it possible that one man can make Jerry Lewis …
