I know, I know. Didn’t we just do this episode? Kinda, sorta. But not to this extent. In our Peak Oil episode we reviewed the history of oil as a commodity, currency and weapon on the world stage. This episode picks up where we left off to drill deeper (pun intended) into the story of crude and how it shows up as $5 gasoline at the pumps. We debunk several myths surrounding high gasoline prices and unequivocally point the finger at who’s to blame.  Chapters Intro: 00:00:16 Part 1: 00:01:14 Part 2: 00:04:24 Part 3: 00:09:07 Part 4: 00:13:50 Part 5: 00:18:48 Post Show Musings: 00:26:11 Outro: 00:40:24 Resources Investopedia: Understanding the Correlation Between Oil and Currency Econbrowser: Gasoline price calculator EnergyWorld.com: How much for gas?

Hey Unf*ckers, it’s Max. Just wanted to weigh in very quickly. This is an episode that we’ve dropped already, it’s called Peak Oil. We dropped it a few months back to try and explain why oil prices were so high. It is a very deep dive into the history of oil prices, commodities markets, and all of the factors that go into the price of oil and the exchanges that they’re traded on. So we go through the history of the Mercantile Exchange, adding oil as a commodity on the exchange in the early ’70s, the disruptions due to the Iranian oil embargo and the OPEC embargo in the ’70s, how that influenced the volatility and the pricing markets, all of the different actors and exchanges that grew along the way to begin to manipulate prices through to where we are today, to where there’s only a handful of players that really determine the market price of oil. Now, the reason that we’re re-dropping this particular one is because tomorrow we’re dropping a half Topical Cream, half full Unf*cking on the price of gasoline today. So what’s different is we discussed the history of oil pricing as a commodity and how it relates to gas prices and prices at the pump in this episode. But the one that we’re dropping tomorrow really drills more deeply into the inputs behind gas prices right now. When we say it’s $5 at the pump, how did it get there? What does that actually mean? So I feel like this first episode does a really good job explaining the market in general and how oil basically moves from the ground to wind up as something that’s traded on commodity exchanges. But the one that we’re going to drop tomorrow—again, half Topical Cream, half full Unf*cking—is really an explainer behind what drives the prices when you take that pump out of your hands at the gas station and you put it in your car. We’re going to explain why those fucking stickers that you see at the pump of Joe Biden being like “I did this,” couldn’t be further from the fucking truth. So we’re going to dispel a whole bunch of myths tomorrow. We’re going to pack you with enough information and resources to destroy all of the myths that you hear in the pundit class and in the mainstream media. And I know this is a really obnoxious thing to say, but I promise you everything that you’re hearing in the mainstream media and in that punditry class is wrong. They’re all getting it wrong, and we’ll explain why. So enjoy this re-release of Peak Oil and look out for the episode tomorrow titled $5 Gasoline. Chapters A Note From Max: 00:00:00 Intro: 00:04:24 Prologue: 00:07:28 Chapter 1: 00:10:21 Chapter 2: 00:13:53 Oil Rundown: 00:19:46 Skit: 00:27:32 Chapter 3: 00:31:20 Chapter 4: 00:44:16 Chapter 5: 00:53:51 Show Notes: 01:00:15 Book Love: 01:03:08 Pod Love: 01:08:54 Emails + Shout Outs: 01:24:07 Outro: 01:32:25 Resources World Population Review: Richest African Countries 2022 Trading Economics: Corruption Rank by Country | Africa Worldometer: Equatorial Guinea Oil Democracy Now!: African Dictatorships and Double Standards U.S. Energy Information Administration: International Energy Outlook 2021 Book Love Peter Maass: Crude World- Required reading for anyone interested in the dark underbelly of the oil and gas trade.  Leif Wenar: Blood Oil- Not my favorite. A little overreaching in the historical and socio-political connections it tries to make but contains some solid anecdotal insights to support a broader thesis of corruption.  Morgan Downey: Oil 101- A fundamental book to understand the product itself and the markets that move it.  Dan Dicker: Oil’s Endless Bid- Pedestrian but informative account of what it’s like to be a commodities trader and what went wrong with the business.  Leah McGrath Goodman: The Asylum: The Renegades Who Hijacked the World’s Oil Market- If you’re really into this topic, this is the book for you. I came to it late as it came out in 2011 but it’s an excellent, deep narrative dive into a world that very few people know or understand. Bernard Harcourt:The Illusion of Free Markets- We’ve talked about Harcourt a lot. The first few sections of the book are very inaccessible but provide an invaluable history of the impact of Enlightenment thinking on the new class of free market promoters.  Emily Lambert:The Futures- Possibly one of my favorite business books of all time. A great read told in fun and engaging anecdotes that helps anyone access and understand the bizarre world of the markets.  Pod Love American Scandal: Enron UNFTR Episode Resources F*ck Milton Friedman.

In Part 1 of Amazon, the Unfulfillment Company, we reviewed Amazon’s rise from online bookseller to third largest company on the planet and well on its way to number one. The extreme focus on the customer is the centerpiece of founder Jeff Bezos’s philosophy and while it has increased consumerism and driven down prices on several categories of goods and services, it’s had big ripple effects in the wider economy and the labor market. Today’s episode picks up where we left off to examine the company’s earnings and acquisitions more closely and addresses how the company is one step ahead of efforts to break it up. We finish with some examples of victories and what must happen to contain Amazon’s influence before it becomes sentient and destroys us all. Or something like that.  Chapters Part 1 Recap: 00:00:05 Intro: 00:02:17 Chapter Four: Big, Bigger, Biggest: 00:07:26 Chapter Five: It’s a matter of antitrust: 00:18:01 Chapter Six: Tiny Victories: 00:30:53 Epilogue: Bring it home, Max: 00:35:33 Post Show Musings: 00:42:49 Know Your Bills: 00:43:16 Outro: 00:57:57 Resources Business Insider: Jeff Bezos famously embraces failure.

The first of a two part series on Amazon. In many ways, Amazon is the logical extension of America’s perverted version of neoliberal capitalism. The self-described libertarian founder Jeff Bezos created a company with nearly 100% brand recognition that has permeated our daily lives in obvious ways and some not so obvious ways. In Part 1 we examine Amazon’s relationship with its hometown of Seattle, its obsessive focus on the customer to the exclusion of all else and how it built its power base in Washington D.C.

In today’s Quickie we’re going to look at three different bills or groupings of bills that represent the array of legislation that exists. Something old, something big and something new. At the end I’ll run through several bills that should be on everyone’s radar and we’ll link some helpful ways to advocate in show notes and on Substack.

We just came through the eighth “technical” recession over the past 50 years and many predict that another is around the corner. Depending upon who you believe we might already be in one, we are about to drop off a cliff or it’s only smooth sailing ahead. Today we talk about how to measure a recession, the different character of prior downturns and why it doesn’t really fucking matter to most of us.  Chapters Intro: 00:00:51 Prologue: 00:01:48 Chapter One: Recessions Defined: 00:05:08 Chapter Two: Recessions of the Modern Era: 00:09:20 Coffee Break: 00:22:33 Chapter Three: Thwart.

It’s the same old script. Mass shooting occurs. Thoughts and prayers fly. Declarations are made. Fingers point. There’s something more insidious at play in this nation than just easy access to weapons and ammunition. Our propensity toward gun violence is indicative of a deeper illness. Like many difficult issues, it’s never just one thing but a confluence of deadly issues that plague our country. To fight for the “soul of the nation,” one has to first ask whether we ever had one to begin with.

Various sources report that the Biden Administration is set to release its plan to deal with student indebtedness. Cancellation? Forgiveness? Refinance? Today’s episode covers the spirited debate surrounding student loan forgiveness and the structural issues that plague the American system of higher education. We cover the history of student loans and how perverse incentives, corporate greed and colleges with endless appetites for growth created a juggernaut of debt and bureaucracy no amount of forgiveness can fix. And, we build a case for policy measures that can restore some balance in the system.

Imagine for a moment a breaking news story that more than 500 bodies of white children were found buried in unmarked graves at some of the most prestigious boarding schools in New England…That we discovered a federal plot to steal children, place them in forced labor camps within these schools and lie about their whereabouts when they died. And that the practice was in existence as recently as the 1960s. It would be fucking chaos. And rightly so. This exact scenario unfolded last week with the release of a Department of Interior report about the history of so-called “Indian Residential Schools” in the United States. No outcry. No outrage. No breaking news alerts. Just another day in the United States of Hypocrisy.

For decades, right wing actors have been steadily tearing apart critical protections of our democracy and stacking the deck in their favor. Civil rights and liberties that were hard fought and then eventually assumed have slowly disappeared. Voting rights. Privacy. Worker projections. Economic mobility. And soon, as we now know, people’s rights to their own bodies. Nothing happens overnight and the process has been slow, steady and painful because the right wing in America is deliberate, organized and patient. Today we examine yet another long-term, right wing attempt to hijack the political system called a Convention of States. Libertarian conservatives have been playing a long chess game while Democrats and liberals have been playing checkers.  Chapters Intro: 00:00:51 Chapter One: So what the fuck is this thing? 00:02:59 Chapter Two: What’s the end game here? 00:10:24 Chapter Three: Um, is this what the framers intended? 00:15:59 Chapter Four: We might need more states. 00:23:21 Chapter Five: Bring it home, Max. 00:32:50 Outro: 00:56:01 Resources Convention of States Action Common Cause: The Dangerous Path- Big Money’s Plan to Shred the Constitution SourceWatch: Convention of States Action Planned Parenthood: Griswold v.

When first listening to the podcast I felt like I had found something important. But 35% of the Podcast talking about someone giving you a coffee or buying a membership .... hard to take this seriously. Run a few ads dude. No one wants to get excited about seeing a whole hour Podcast, and then after 40 min it devolves into just begging for money.

Am new to the show and am impressed. But reading some messages for ever about people that like you and buy you coffee...

Very amusing and easy to listen to. I like the presenters wordy explanations and laughed out loud many times. I recommend it as a diversion to the present news.
