Countless Indigenous women, girls, and two-spirit people go missing or are murdered across Canada and the United States in an ongoing genocide receiving inadequate attention from media, governments, and law enforcement. Who’s taking and killing them, and why isn’t more being done? News Beat podcast—Manny’s other love—speaks with Native women on both sides of the border who break down the causes and perpetrators of these atrocities and seek justice for the many mothers, daughters, sisters, aunties, and nieces, missing or slain. South Carolina (by way of New York) hip-hop sorceress LiKWUiD performs original verse to illuminate their mission, and the crisis.

The man behind the curtain. The fifth Beatle. The ace up our sleeve. Max interviews UNFTR’s ultimate secret weapon, Tom McGovern. Tom is the genius behind the show’s myriad theme songs, signature parodies like Oh, Canada and Independent Platform Man and the musical touches sprinkled throughout our episodes. We convinced Tom to come out of the recording booth long enough for us to praise him. Then he saw his shadow and went back into the booth. Max and Tom have a wide ranging discussion about musical influences, acting and where the fuck all the baby pigeons are.

Part One of “The Clinton Years” examined Bill Clinton’s legacy through the lens of their foundation work and stubborn insistence on the private sector’s ability to cure everything from poverty to climate change. Part Two went back to the beginning to uncover the roots of Clinton’s neoliberal philosophy that would guide his decades in public service. In this final episode of the series, the rubber meets the road as we review the policies, laws and moments that have come to define the decade of the ‘90s and how Clinton’s legacy has negatively reverberated over time,  contributed to the conservative makeover of the Democratic Party and planted the seeds for the culture wars of today.  Chapters Intro: 00:00:04 Prologue: 00:02:06 Chapter Five: The first Black president. 00:06:00 Chapter Six: Housing.

In Part One of “The Clinton Years” we started our journey in the present day by examining the structure and programs of The Clinton Foundation. Many of Clinton’s earliest ideas in public service remain very much a part of the Clinton ethos and belief system to this day. Early evidence of the reliance on public/private partnerships and adherence to free market ideology can be found in Clinton’s formative years when the Democratic Party was reeling from Ronald Reagan’s takeover of the American political system. Part Two of “The Clinton Years” examines the roots of the Clinton philosophy and approach to government.  Chapters Intro: 00:00:42 Chapter Two: Winner, winner, chicken dinner. 00:05:43 Chapter Three: Micro-finance as a macro policy. 00:13:47 Chapter Four: Between sunshine and rain…A Rainbow Coalition. 00:25:58 Post Show Musings: 00:45:03 Book Love: 00:45:37 Outro: 00:57:35 Resources The Baltimore Sun: Modest success marks Clinton era Arkansas remains poor, but has made gains in Democrat’s tenure U.S. News: Best States- Arkansas U.S. News: Best States- Massachusetts The New York Times: The President's Past Book Love Lily Geismer: Left Behind: The Democrats’ Failed Attempt to Solve Inequality Nathan J.

When we think of prosperous eras in modern U.S. history, conservatives often point to the Reagan administration as a crucial turning point. To the corporate class, there’s a good deal of truth to this, but mostly to the extent that the seeds of neoliberalism planted in the 70s were watered during this period. The full blossom would come under President William Jefferson Clinton. Today, establishment democrats recall the Clinton years with the same fondness conservatives treat the Reagan era with. Forget the sex scandals, questionable real estate investments and swirling conspiracies about body counts. The real scandal of the Clinton 90s was the death of progressivism. Part One of “The Clinton Years” examines the legacy of Bill Clinton through the lens of the Clinton Foundation and how it continues to embody the neoliberal ideals of the New Democrats.  Chapters Intro: 00:01:12 Chapter One: 00:07:10 Part One Closing Thoughts: 00:23:56 Post Show Musings: 00:27:39 Skit Flashback: 00:45:32 Resources Philanthropy News Digest: Future of Clinton Foundation Uncertain The New Yorker: How to Save the Clinton Foundation Clinton Foundation Annual Report 2020 Clinton Global Initiative Focus Areas Clinton Foundation Impact Statement The Washington Post: Foundation faceoff: The Trump Foundation vs. the Clinton Foundation Book Love Lily Geismer: Left Behind: The Democrats’ Failed Attempt to Solve Inequality -- If you like #UNFTR, please leave us a rating and review on Apple Podcasts: unftr.com/rate and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram at @UNFTRpod.

For years, the propagandists with the greatest visibility in the United States were on television; the ones who contributed most to the “manufacture of consent.” Think Fox News. And we’ve covered many of the dark, hidden figures looming in the background churning out the ideas that make it into the mainstream and out of Tucker Carlson’s mouth. Uncle Milton, James Buchanan, Lewis Powell, The Koch Brothers, Robert Mercer, Peter Thiel and the myriad think tanks like Mercatus, Cato and Heritage. Today we cover another contributor to the perverted right wing ecosystem: Prager University and its folksy, baritone, asshole patriarch, Dennis Prager.

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.

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.

Starting to feel like a time suck listening to your podcast. So much wasted time talking about whatever. Stick more to progressive issues.

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.

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.
