end talk – the latest!

I’ve got some recent new content to share from END TALK – podcast and media newsletter!

Listen:

“How Obama Killed Indie Music” (on the shifting terrain in indie music from 2000 to the present, including the particularities of the indie sound as the genre developed and mutated post-2010)

“Ciao Bella!” (on Cuomo, the non-hero of New York AKA Emmy-award winning disgraced ex-Governor, Andrew Cuomo)

These episodes are also available on podcast streaming apps by searching “end talk.”

Read:

end talk – i’m so bored with the USA

Read the latest issue of end talk now: I’M SO BORED WITH THE USA. It is full!

“This issue of END TALK loosely embodies the spirit of the frontier, our collective ceiling, and the deep challenge of escaping history. We include another roundup of the current climate situation, an essay by Ben on the attempt to create a European Super League, a partial reprint of Will’s essay on fascism, a shout-out to a couple non-controversial Substacks, and several music and reading recommendations, including a recent interview w/ Arundhati Roy & a new music video from our friend Anguid.”
