Frotcast 244: ‘Going Clear,’ And San Francisco’s Prison Of Technology

Listen on the player above, or download as an mp3 here (right click, save as).

There’s a new bus service in San Francisco that basically helps rich tech nerds pay a few more dollars not to see poor people. Is this a sign of the apocalypse or is it basically all capitalism in a nutshell? Either way, it seems like we the San Francisco residents are guinea pigs in an experiment to see what it’d be like if tech companies ruled the world. WE HAVE SEEN YOUR FUTURE, AND IT SUCKS. We discuss the infantilizing effect of tech before moving onto Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, with Ben back on the pod after two months in Central America. He talks where to go and what to spend and all that good stuff. We finish up with your emails and voicemails about your personal encounters with Name Of The Year contestants like Dr. Loki Skylizard, and Tokyo Sexwale.
