Russell Brand: Spiritual Transcendence and Anarchic Revolution is Praxis
Russell Brand is a hip bohemian Englishman on the path to enlightenment. And he likes the ineffable. Like, a lot. The decoders kinda like him too, despite the fact they really struggle to eff him at all. Really, Matt has no effing idea what he is babbling about most of the time, but Chris, being 'English-adjacent', seems to make a better job of it. Imagine smoking pot and talking big ideas with your precocious college room-mate at 2am in the morning. Now give him some methamphetamine, and you've got some idea of the fast-talking stream of consciousness that is Russell Brand. A pair of milquetoast moderates like Chris and Matt just aren't the right audience to properly appreciate the mystical anarchism that Brand advocates. It's probably got something to do with the limits of the bandwidth of their instruments of perception given that knowledge and wisdom are infinite and being-ness itself is.... Well, you get the idea. The lads also reveal some of the exciting progress of the podcast! In exciting news... DTG has broken into the top 100 podcasts! In the Culture and Society category... in Iceland. Regardless, come ride this unstoppable and frenetic juggernaut of mind-expanding concepts with us, and get these cosmic ideas downloaded directly into your squishy little brain!

Ep. 311: Ace Atkins on Race, Writing Bestselling Crime Novels, and the "New South"
Ace Atkins is a New York Times bestselling author whose novels include the Quinn Colson series and Robert B. Parker’s Spenser series. Atkins is a former newspaper reporter and SEC football player. His essays and other writing have appeared in national publications such as Time magazine and elsewhere. Ace reflects on the ghosts and demons of the color line in America and what the “New South” means to him. Ace also shares what he learned about life and the craft of writing through his journey from being a newspaper reporter to the author of bestselling crime novels. And he shares some hidden history about the true origins of Donald Trump’s “red hat” MAGA cult hate movement. Chauncey DeVega ponders the emotional valence of a Thanksgiving holiday in an age of death, economic calamity, Trumpism’s continuing assaults on democracy and human decency, and the hopeful possibilities of Joe Biden’s presidency. Chauncey also takes a culinary journey to the world of TV dinners in order to better understand why he hates the turkey that is commonly served on Thanksgiving. And of course, Chauncey DeVega shares an animal friends story about mountain gorillas, who like many humans on Thanksgiving day, enjoy singing and farting during and after they eat a tasty meal.
