Type1Radio Lounge – 16 December 2017

Join hosts Miles, Steve, Phi and Swami for a brand new episode of Type1Radio Lounge. Tonight they are joined by special guest Hesher, host of Alternate Current Radio’s Boiler Room and the producer of 21st Century Wire’s Sunday Wire. As Psonik can’t be with us tonight, Miles is filling in as tonight’s producer.

Tonight’s discussion kicks off with recognition of the good work done by 21st Century Wire in pushing the story of British taxpayer money ending up in the hands of jihadis in Syria into the mainstream. We then talk about the city of Chicago, where there are simultaneous calls for greater powers for cities and for UN peacekeepers to maintain law and order there. We take a moment to remember the 5-year anniversary of the events at Sandy Hook, as well as the 6-month anniversary of the fire at Grenfell Tower. We discuss the various incarnations of hate speech in the news this week, with Twitter trolls being sentenced to prison and Canadian teachers in trouble for teaching. We round out the show with talk about a couple of animal mishaps and instances of AI run amok.
