#156 Salvation & Apocalypse In The Metamodern World (with Seth Abramson)
This week’s guest on Under The Skin is the rather incredible meta modern journalist and political analyst Seth Ambramson! Seth is an American professor, attorney, author, and political columnist. His teaching areas include digital journalism, post-internet cultural theory, post-internet writing, and legal advocacy. He has written several books including Proof of Corruption: Bribery, Impeachment, and Pandemic in the Age of Trump (2020) and Proof of Conspiracy: How Trump's International Collusion Is Threatening American Democracy (2019).  We we drill down into why the political landscape is the way it is, if Donald Trump is the problem or actually just a symptom and how postmodernism created a culture of hopelessness! Seth proposes the benefits of the metamodernist approach and explains how the most rebellious amongst us aren’t those reliving the punk attitudes of the 70s but the people who are putting themselves out there, seemingly uncool and and being mocked for their efforts to create change. Enjoy! MORE INFO Seth’s new book Proof of Corruption is available now: https://us.macmillan.com/books/9781250273000 Proof of Corruption concludes a series that includes 2018's Proof of Collusion and 2019's Proof of Conspiracy.

352 - Alasdair Beckett-King
The inter-dimensional ABK is a brilliantly original comic with a penchant for wordy intelligent material that leaves no-one behind. He’s also the creator of the most absurdly wonderful animated trailer for an Edinburgh show you’ve ever seen. We talk about why he never likes to be part of a group; attention to detail and the merits of commitment; and gives his thoughts on how we get to the A-timeline… 20 minutes of extra content available exclusively to members of the Insiders Club include Alasdair gives a fascinating example of using jokes as a means of hiding internal mechanics when scripting video games, and ponders potentially falling between the two stools of arty and club comedy.  Go to www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for this and much, much more.
