This episode has a gross title, but it’s a real quote from Dark Pools, the book I’m reading right now about high-frequency trading. Also this episode: stabbing people with letter openers, psychotic robots that follow you into the bathroom, killer super weeds, and cinder blocks to the face! Enjoy.

The New Jim Crow in 2:20

This police officer explains how the so-called “drug war” is waged differently in black and white areas. Very important.

I finally did a new episode. You’re welcome. Listen to me talk about Obama’s re-election (just a little), Hurricane Sandy, Israel and Gaza, and some other stuff.

X-Clan: “Weapon X”

This blog is not going to become just a dumping ground for the podcast, I promise! I just haven’t had much time to post stuff here. Start of school be crazy, yo. (In case you’re not subscribed, I update the SynaStream daily, usually more than once a day. So check that.)

Anyway, this week’s show is all about Hooters (the restaurant), a pendulum named Elizabeth Warren, union thugs in Chicago, morons making movies as well as morons murdering because of movies, and robots making noodles. Enjoy!
