Ten Thousand Posts
Posting through the Housing Crisis, Part 1 ft. Rebecca Wilks

Posting through the Housing Crisis, Part 1 ft. Rebecca Wilks

December 6, 2022

In this episode, we're joined by Rebecca Wilks, a Cardiff-based poverty, policing and housing journalist, to talk about Landlord Posting - a genre of online content produced by (or for) Landlords.

Landlord Posting has become a more common feature of social media recently, not least in the wake of the cost-of-living crisis surging, and much of that being centred around the cost of renting and living - as well as a rising number of tragic deaths and hospitalisations directly linked to poor quality housing.

Landlord Posting is then an attempt by Landlords to rationalise, not just their disproportionate level of power, but the foundations its built on. And as they become harder to justify and rationalise, well, the posts become a lot stranger.

This episode serves as an introduction to the topic, and a low-down of the current state of Landlording in the UK, before cracking into the Posts proper in Part 2.

This week, we're joined by Alex Hern, UK Tech editor at the Guardian, to talk about Mastodon, the new ‘alternative twitter’ people have been moving to in the wake of Elon Musk’s twitter take over, and the very real threat of the platform becoming dysfunctional.

We will be discussing the history of Mastodon, Alex’s experiences on the platform and where it differs from twitter in terms of objectives and positions. We’ll use his experience (documented in his guardian article) to discuss whether Mastodon is a suitable twitter alternative, or whether it’s simply attempting to revive what’s already dead - can Mastodon really survive a social media economy that’s pivoting to video anyway?

Tales from the Crypto ft. Jacob Silverman

Tales from the Crypto ft. Jacob Silverman

November 29, 2022

This week, we focus on the collapse of FTX, a former crypto exchange worth multiple billion dollars, which declared just last year that it would be the company to ‘save’ crypto from extreme fluctuations, fraud, schemes etc. Sam Bankman-Fried, the 30 year old former CEO of FTX, was hailed as the next Warren Buffett, met with Bill Clinton and Tony Blair, and was extremely influential in government and policy circles in promoting cryptocurrency. He even stated that FTX could eventually buy Goldman Sachs.

We talk to Jacob Silverman, a journalist who has long warned about the fraudulence inherent in crypto, about how we got here, what SBF’s rise and fall tells us about the crypto/web3 economy, and whether the collapse of FTX is the final death knell for any use-case for crypto, other than to do scams.

At time of recording, the general consensus was that this could well be the end of twitter, so what better time to gather your friends and have ourselves a poster's potluck? Everyone brings a tweet or two for the table, we kick back to discuss and analyse why these tweets are worth highlighting, or perhaps are even worthy of inclusion in the hall of fame. This time: Joyce Carol-Oates wonders if there's any joy in ISIS culture, Liam Payne's 2013 worries about snake habitats, and much more!

Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, we have had little choice but to address the current and ongoing "Elon situation" at Twitter. We're joined by Jathan, co-host of This Machine Kills, and the author of
Too Smart: How Digital Capitalism is Extracting Data, Controlling Our Lives, and Taking Over the World,  to try figure out what Elon's strategy actually is, or if he's too trapped in grievances to think about running Twitter as a business. We also talk about what Elon gets right - namely, a recognition that social media platforms don't really have any value in and of themselves - and how this exposes the shams and illusions of the content economy that govern much of our lives today.

November 4, 2022

note: Phoebe's microphone is broken in this episode. A replacement has arrived and it will be fine going forwards, but you may notice a certain... mobile phone handset quality to the audio. I have done everything I can, and it sounds orders of magnitude better than it did in the raw file, but it's still not ideal.

On this Halloween spooktacular, we reminisce fondly about a legendary halloween post: Showing up to a party dressed as the Babadook, when the event really had more of a 'grown ups drinking wine' vibe. Previous years' halloween specials have been about posts such as Francis Fukuyama lamenting the casualised nature of skeletons as decorations.
