Porkins Policy Radio episode 158 Emma Redmond on Incels, Sean Penn, Nike sweat shops, Botham Jean, and more

My sister Emma Redmond is my guest this week. We started off the first hour by discussing the rise of involuntary celibates, commonly known as incels. We talked about their belief system and world view, as well as their insular community online. Emma and I addressed incels intense misogyny and vilification of the “Stacys” and “Beckys” of the world. Later we touched on Jordan Peterson and our theory that he is an incel that made it out of the community. We also talked about the disturbing trend of suicide within the incel community. Emma and I also explored the idea that incels are a modern day death cult.

In the second hour Emma and I covered a wide variety of topics and current news stories. We started off with the latest developments within the #MeToo movement. Emma gave her own perspective on the movement and the attention placed on Hollywood. We briefly touched on Sean Penn’s recent comments on #MeToo and his history of domestic violence against Madonna. Later we talked about Colin Kaepernick’s new deal with the Nike and the outrage it has caused. We talked about Nike’s abhorrent human rights record and use of sweat shops. We ended the show by discussing the murder of Botham Jean in his home by Dallas police officer Amber Guyger.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 72 Member South Park Season 20 with Emma Redmond

Today I am joined by my sister Emma to discuss and dissect season 20 of South Park. We begin by explaining what transpired this season: Mr. Garrison becoming President, Cartman falling love, gender wars, and the dangers of internet trolling. We begin by talking about the “Member Berries” and their devious plot to use the power of nostalgia to elect the Trump like Mr. Garrison. Emma and I discuss the power that nostalgia can have on ones psyche, and how we are constantly manipulated into following certain trends because of it. We then move onto the the issue of trolling which features prominently through out this whole season. We talk about Gerald’s trolling and explore the idea over whether it is in fact ok or funny to troll. Next we talk about the the gender wars that ensue through out South Park and the world at large. We talk about Butters transformation as a men’s rights activist and how this is mirroring society at large. Emma and I also touch on how Butters is schooled in all of this with the help of Bill Clinton.

In the second hour we break down South Park’s portrayal of Trump as Mr. Garrison. We talk about why Matt Stone and Trey Parker decided to use Garrison as a stand in for the president-elect, and if it worked as a statement and as a comic device. We round out the episode by discussing the genius of South Park as a show. We talk about how the series, and this season in particular, manages to show that the true enemy among us is society and ourselves. Emma and I also have a candid discussion on the dangers of horse porn.
