Transmediacrity A podcast about media through an analytical, admiring and alternative perspective.

May 29, 2020  

Madiha puts out One Of These to talk about how there's no show, feeling responsibility for explaining why, and talking briefly about racial injustice, the outpouring of grief and desperation that is racialized as "rioting" and "looting" and why she's a horrible dumbass who you should just send hatemail to if it makes you feel better.

Please spare no sympathy for your terrible host who deserves none and instead give to these folks in need:

Madiha is here with an experimental minisode examining the liberalism in Arknights and answering the much asked question "why do you like Girls Frontline's story better than Arknights?" It's about to get Leninist in here, so watch out.
