Socialist Rifle Association Podcast
Summary: A podcast for the SRA community and greater leftist community, particularly the gun owning parts of it. Released on a weekly schedule, we discuss all manners of news stories pertaining to the cause of leftism, particularly with matters pertaining to firearms, from a leftist perspective.
Faye and Austin talk about the SRA's recent interview with the BBC, liberal media's obsession with both-sidesism, the Coast Guard terrorist, Ilhan Omar, and the Venezuelan coup. Faye answers Austin's questions about defensive handgun calibres. After the break Faye interviews AngieSpeaks about social capital and gun culture in the UK.
Faye and Austin discuss Bernie Sanders' presidential announcement, the Green New Deal, NeoLiberal complacency, and the likelihood of catastrophic climate change. Afterwards they talk about mental health and suicide with regards to gun ownership, and the need for community and mutual emotional support. Faye interviews SRA member Oso about the SRA's hurricane relief efforts, as well as his experiences as a Jewish person living in the South.
Faye and Austin discuss the liberal reaction to Trump's State of the Union; Kamala Harris' transphobia; and Oregon's new gun legislation. Faye teaches Austin about how safely store a firearm. Faye interviews the President of the SRA, Alex Humva, about Native American rights and the issue of reparations for Native tribes.
New Year, New Host! Faye takes over as official host of the SRA podcast. Joined by new Co-host Austin, they discuss the foibles of the Media's obsession with covering Trump and the Mueller investigation; the Democratic Party's resistance to Progressive ideals; Feinsteins's Assault Weapon's Ban and Police Violence. Faye guides Austin through the process of buying his first gun.
Alex gets meta and reflects on the podcast. Changes are coming to the podcast and its format, but it's okay: it's still doing better than the government, which is currently shut down while one party controls all branches of the federal government and a majority of state legislatures and governorships. The only thing stopping the rise of fascism is the sheer incompetence of those involved.
Please support Mutual Aid Defense Relief and their mission to help folks after Hurricane Michael and other events. The podcast (maybe) resumes normal schedule with another look at our grimdark present. Alex and Faye takes a trip to the windy city to see how their mayor wants to solve a budget shortfall and a far right murderer is tried and convicted as such. A church evicts the homeless displaced after Hurricane Michael and Alex becomes a preacher to cast damnation. Finally, listener questions.
In a belated episode, Alex and Faye talk about Musk digging tunnels, the Democratic leadership continue to prove to be mostly spineless, but AOC continues to troll the right magnificently while attempting to survive DC on a shoestringe budget. Bernie Sanders gives a pretty terrible take on migrants coming to America, CNN gets an itchy termination finger, the VA fails at its job, and the Supreme Court agrees to look at the ban on buying handguns out-of-state. New York state proposes a bill to grab your social media when you want to buy a gun and Elon Musk gets remanded by NASA. Finally, a Heads Up Display and the cyberpunk future.
Returning from a post-election haze, Alex and Faye tackle an election recap, a sampling of recent gun stories, and then look at Amazon's new HQ and the huge government breaks they're receiving. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
In a shorter episode, Alex and Faye take a look at Elon Musk being, well, Elon Musk, including a discussion of titles and the lack there of as well as an extended segment regarding Musk, catgirls, and trans culture. They swear a lot, and then talk about America's descent into fascism and violence.
The trainwreck continues as JL returns to help analyze various liberal and neoliberal individuals and institutions receiving pipe bombs from someone who thinks they're the representatives of leftism. The Saudi Arabian royals continue to change their story on how a critic of them and the Trump administration was mysteriously tortured and killed by Saudi Arabian intelligence operatives. The Department of Health and Human Services employs elementary school level sex ed to make guidelines about human sex and gender, to expectedly terrible results. Finally, Washington state seeks to implement much stricter gun laws on its residents, and the cops are torn on what to think.
In this episode of the podcast, Alex might not exactly be well, but that can't stop him from talking about John Brown. The Proud Boys attack leftists from one side of the nation to the other and then boast about having friends in high places. Breht and Bones get attacked by Alex Jones, who is blissfully unaware of their helicopter schemes. Saudi Arabia assassinates a journalist by means of bone saw and it's just absolutely terrifying, skip to 1:15:00ish if you don't want that. Finally, student loans destroy us all.
The podcast looks at changes going on with the Socialist Rifle Association and hurricane efforts happening today, and then turns an eye to Elon Musk, Silicon Valley, and the intersection of technology and society. We glance at what social activism and corporate activism is doing in the gun world, and then sigh a lot about the rise of fascism. Finally, the anthropocene, climate change, and the incoming apocalyptic landscape. Gotta end positive.
The podcast reviews the Republican party "abandoning it's values" and sighs deeply. The US gets slapped in international court but no one seems to care while Musk gets slapped by the SEC and cares a little. The Jesuits look to embrace democratic socialism and further liberation theology, but then the Louisville DSA gets pepper sprayed. Parkland denies rent space to a gun show and maybe that isn't the best but who knows. We briefly review how screen time works with children, because why not. Finally, "frugal" billionaires and Amazon's labor struggles.
This is part of a Patreon series to provide some extra content for those who support the show at Patreon6, the first episode being made public to premier the series. In this episode Alex and Faye discuss intersectionality, some of its history, its applications in today's society, and what we should do about class consciousness and identity politics. Special guest appearance from the ghost of the Humva household, the mini-Humva.
The podcast resumes regular schedule a day late because the host is currently dying from a sinus infection. Alex and Faye discuss the hurricane relief efforts briefly, then get into the shocking news that an ancap did something awful. The Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility successfully passes a resolution with Smith and Wesson's holding company to push for more gun safety, somehow. Trump talks big at the UN and gets laughed at for it, but it's okay because we'll all forget about it with the never-ending saga on Kavanaugh and now Rosenstein. California tries to fix the bail system and misses the mark, while Jerry Brown tells us not to go too far left unless we want someone even worse than Trump. The Jacobin mistreats its workers, the Apple Watch is cool but could put you in legal trouble, and millennial kill something else yet again: divorce. Finally, the rich seek to survive the apocalypse, but don't seem to have thought it through very well.
