Alternatives #2: Matt Taibbi

Dec 6th, 2017 | By | Category: Alternatives, Articles, Zero Squared


J.G. Michael and C Derick Varn have a new podcast called "Alternatives" which will be featured monthly on either the member's only Inside Zero Books feed page or here on the Zero Squared feed. Alternatives is a podcast about culture, specifically about alternatives to mainstream culture (or the absence of alternatives.)

This second episode of Alternatives features a conversation about Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi, the new media, Generational Politics, and no platforming.

Will Taibbi survive #metoo given the tone and character of his work with The Exile in 2002?

We’ve moved the Inside Zero Books podcast from the Zero Books blog to Patreon. This makes it easier to get the member’s only podcast on podcatchers. We’ll be restarting our reruns of the first year of Inside Zero Books daily on our Patreon account. If you missed Inside Zero Books podcast the first time, or if you just want to hear the old episodes again, they’ll be available.

If you enjoy the Zero Books podcast consider listening to the Inside Zero books podcast on Patreon!

    Matt Taibbi wasn’t to be working with Glenn Greenwald but heading up what would be the Intercept’s more-edgy journalism outlet Racket. See more: https://theintercept.com/2014/10/30/inside-story-matt-taibbis-departure-first-look-media/

    Omg please talk about feral house. Also talking about john Dolan, and calling out chapo… I want more. Republic of Cthulhu is also rad. I’m reading it now.

  4. This 2011 book by Mark Fisher’s fellow traveler Simon Reynolds will likely be of interest to anyone interested in these cultural questions of 21st century nostalgia brought up towards the end of the conversation, and its roots in the conditions of modernity. The book is also a fantastic reference to related works in art history, theory, and criticism, such as Svetlana Boym’s The Future of Nostalgia (2001).
