002 – Lincoln (1998)

Play

Returning for a particularly enlightening second episode of Giants Confirmed, Trevor and Matt book a trip to the Johns’ hometown of Lincoln, Massachussetts for an in-depth review of the band’s 1988 sophomore album — and as one might expect, it’s filled with even more oblique references and confounding trivia than their debut. To paraphrase one of the record’s biggest songs: I don’t want the world, I just want to know what the hell “Purple Toupee” is about!

035 – Reach Into Your Local Trade Union

Here in 2018, what we know for sure is that Powerthirst is funny and that capitalism is the most reasonable distribution of resources. Just ask Verizon! This week the squad talks new names, vape games, popping big bottles for the big man Manafort and manages three separate times to discuss internet culture minutiae. We’re extremely online, just don’t report us to Doug Ford!

CW: discussion of transphobic violence towards children from 20:00-24:33

The Canada Gang + Patrick sit down this week to discuss all sorts of wonderful (read: terrible) things going on in the world, such as: Elon’s Wild Ride, Nazi’s try and fail to organize again, The first major-party transgender gubernatorial candidate in US history, Our funny president doing slurs and eating secrets, Aretha Franklin (Sad), Tom Perez (Mad), and Chris Hardwick (Bad). It’s my first time editing so if anything sounds bad it was an artistic choice.

Featuring Evan, Linus, Matt, and Patrick

Happy Space Force! All the hosts on this week met in person last weekend, and they all lived! Now the gamers are back and they get into the important stuff like space force, Saudi Arabia threatening to do a 9/11, old video games, space force and a dating app that really screwed the pooch.

What’s up, war criminals? Time for another DISRUPTIANO as we try desperately to not talk about the horrible news from America’s southern border and instead talk about which of our hosts we’re going to kill, interesting biological facts about elected representation and legal weed. Also, Sam gets mad about Detroit: Become Human again.

Featuring Matt, Sam, Linus and Evan.

Sorry this episode is a bit disorganized! It’s been a week. But if you think that’s going to stop us from saying our standard detestable garbage, hey, I guess you don’t know this podcast very well! This week: Linus’s dad gets doxxed, Luna gets censored, Matt has some issues with Bill Clinton, and Sam makes the most shameful mistake of his life.
