4/20 Episode: DRUGS (and mental health)

Also on Apple Podcasts

A little something to help you through physical distancing. This month on 420 day we’re discussing drugs (and mental health), from Acid Communism to psychiatry.

We also include a mysterious tape sent back to us by the No Fate Project, recounting the future zombie plague.

Fourth-Wall Break: Our zombie plague arc was conceived before COVID-19, with the first entries being aired in November 2019, so while we have worked in references to coronavirus, it’s not a deliberate allegory for that. Rather the allegory is based on Daphne Lawless’ work on the Red-Brown Zombie Plague, the infection of far right ideas on the left. Satire is dead.
