Now that podcasts are increasingly distance recorded, perhaps the time has come to start a Grylliade Podcast? (Audio only, natch.)

Who would listen? And should the first episode be devoted to abortion or grammar?

A) I'm into actually doing something podcasty with the gryllitariat. Interesting idea tbh, premise being many/most of us haven't actually met.

2: I'm currently enjoying Red Scare podcast and will probably get onto their Patreon at some point.

I've helped with a podcast. I can't remember whether Fyodor worked on a podcast or just appeared on a few.

Could have sworn someone else did something a few years back, but it's late.

I have decided that I'm just not a podcast person. Science Vs is OK, though. Their content has been 100% coronavirus-related ever since January, though, which means I'm not listening to any new episodes.

"Dan" on the podcast is Dan Boeckner from Wolf Parade. Charles is one of the guys who do the e1 song parodies like "Black Flanders" and "Emotional Support Candle".

Personally, I think that Occhipinti really peaks when he sings about his passion, dining at the Waffle House.

It kind of sounds like the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation Robot Choir, only slightly worse.

Holy crap. I didn't intend to listen to the whole thing, but I listened to the whole thing. Utter madness.

Did you guys listen to this? There’s a super strange pivot in here I found fascinating.

As much as I enjoy some nutpicking and hate-listening, a NYT podcast titled Nice White Parents would probably put me in the hospital.

I listened to the first episode. Their definition of white is one foreign even to me, and I grew up among upper middle class prep school strivers.

ditto

Chana keeps saying "white parents" when what she means is "wealthy parents" or even just "parents".

Can you elaborate on that? I'm not going to listen to any more of this shit waiting for it to get good.

I wonder about the degree this is a New York experience. Nevertheless, in ep 4 I think we learn that the basement of the school she’s following becomes a Success Academy charter school. That’s the famous one with the good test scores but very demanding of parents and students with heavy focus on no disruptions. Reminds me very much of. Japanese school tbh.

Anyway Chana finds out that White boys get suspended from that school. Like, in volume. She watches the school in actin and interviews staff and parents and yup basically they have a system and a set of requirements and everyone is subject to those rules. If a parent fund raises the money gets spread among all success academy schools and there will be no changes to the curriculum or design like you saw with the French program in ep1

So high test scores, white parents don’t get special treatment, can’t buy special programs. It’s - what she’s saying never happens. Now the pivot. But let’s talk about equality vs equity she says - shouldn’t we care about giving disadvantaged kids more? Should we get these parents and their kids to understand their role in racism?

Refocus on the public school upstairs now implementing a bunch of anti racist coaching to put whit parents on notice. Here is another approach - downstairs is equality but this is equity. Blah blah. She’s very self aware in some ways, but she literally drops academic achievement from mattering when she says yeah success academy gets results if you count test scores as results - but literally for the whole time the whole point was the achievement gap, then she saw it go down ... and hated it. It didn’t look right. The anti racism thing must be the right answer, but she kinda never addresses if the newly woke public school actually produces academic achievement. It just looks better. It’s a jarring pivot.

At a superficial glance, I'm reminded of Things White People Like from back in the day. (Which was doubly weird, because that guy was Canadian.)
