Episode 22: Mazel Tov Cocktail

Welcome back to Race Invaders! With Tim away on vacation, Alok is pleased to have Max Sparber as a guest host. An essayist and playwright, Max runs the blog Dress British Think Yiddish, where he talks about his journey in relearning the Yiddish language, his reactions to the resurgence of antisemitism in American discourse, and how to make the most Jewish cocktails around. We hope you enjoy the conversation as much as we did.

Episode 21a: All Alone in the Pod

Hey Race Invaders, this is Alok. I’m all alone in the pod, because no one told me it was fucking vacation month, damn. Anyway, this is just a short note to tell you about some things we’ve got coming up, some media for you to check out in the meantime (including some terrible nepotistic plugging), and a bit of a meditation on where the hell we are after not even three weeks of Trumpocalypse.

Episode 21: Collect Call

Welcome to another episode of Race Invaders, where we are desperately trying not to just talk about Trump all the goddamn time. Today we’re discussing calling people out versus calling people in; when should you put someone on blast, and when should you have a quiet word aside? We also talk about times we got told and had to change, and Tim has a few words for someone who believes that immigrants can just suck up their travel ban. Unsurprisingly, those words are: what the shit?

Episode 20: Mama Said Knock You Out

Welcome to Race Invaders, sponsored by nazipunch.haha. For our monumental 20th episode, we examine the ethics and morals of Nazi-punching (spoiler: punch that Nazi today) and other dilemmas. Also, What The Shit makes a triumphant return, as Alok yells ineffectually at some fucking idiot who thinks that girls drinking whiskey is a notable character trait and who also thinks the right way to make an old-fashioned is with muddled fruit and club soda. I mean, this fucking guy.

Episode 13: Steven Barnes

Hey there, Race Invaders. We’ve got a special one for you today: an interview with Steven Barnes, Hugo-nominated author and screenwriter, martial artist, and all-around cool dude. Also, Alok has a special thanks for all of you listeners, and then he has a special joke for you in the form of someone actually paying Rachel Dolezal to write a fucking book. This is madness.
