Let's face it, the last two years have made American look more and more like Idiocracy was a documentary. Chapo Trap House has been one of the few beacons of sanity in this crazy world: I don't doubt they have a large Goon following due to their marriage of Weird Twitter humor and LF-style leftist politics - the "dirtbag left" if you will. In fact, eagle-eyed goons will no doubt notice frequent references to the forums on the podcast, from Zybourne Clock to the n**gerstomper58 post.

It looks like we're lucky enough to be treated to a new book by the Chapo crew coming in August



Have any goons preordered yet?

Imagine if LF-poster Goons made a podcast about politics and making fun of really lovely politically-related people like David Brooks and poo poo. That's Chapo. Just listen to an episode or something if you wanna. I got into it because political comedy was right up my alley and it helped me tolerate the new iteration of the hellworld we live in.

Also, the guests tend to own. James Adomian, Bill Corbett of late MST3K, Matt Taibbi and Jeremy Scahill have been on, Adam Curtis, Prof. Richard Wolff. Lotta poo poo like that.

One of the earliest clips I heard that made me laugh was the Garfield jag on this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kdcv6FMJ0Bk

That would be Matt, I'm guessing. The Bathroom Marxist Shouting His Contributions Up From The Bottom Of A Well. He eventually moved to NYC so he's present in the room a lot now, but his audio quality was pretty bad when he was in Ohio.

Nothing in Jurassic World is natural, we have always filled gaps in the genome with the DNA of other animals. And if the genetic code was pure, many of them would look quite different. But you didn't ask for reality, you asked for more teeth.

It's a communist podcast. And they make like 90 thousand dollars a month from Patreon.

Yeah. Combination of being funny and being right gets ya in the door. Then come da paper. I dunno what the specific distribution might be of that, though. Felix said, on The Michael Brooks Show, that he's at about 110k a year (which isn't a LOT for New York City, but it's comfortable), and I can't imagine anyone claiming a bigger share of the show's proceeds than him, Will, and Matt.

If sincere, I have to ask for you to attempt to explain, since there's a really lovely component to the left that is people who're anti-Chapo. They're mainly extremely-online idiots who were committed Hillarystans until... Novemberish 2016. They're universally retards, they're universally language police, universally the sort of people who could be classified as psyops meant to disrupt the left, if they ever actually left their houses or organized any-- which they don't, because self-diagnosed autism means they're the most disabled people on the planet and thus more victimized than anyone else and that counts as Woke Points.

I tried listening to these guys innernet radio show and it just didn't rub with me at all. they sounded like they were trying too hard to be funny and it came of as desperate and shouty. but that was just the first episode or w/e.
