Having a Callin episode tomorrow, Friday January 21st, at 3:00 p.m. EST to talk with writer Wesley Yang, inventor of the term “Successor Ideology,” to talk Biden’s Awesome First Year, all the things that are literally eugenics, and the 14-point party affiliation swing. I know people are frustrated about the iPhone only factor, and I can only repeat what I’ve been told: Android accessibility is coming. Anyway, join us! Wes is smart, original, always interesting:
Hey Matt, thanks for doing these and providing a transcript last time. Ignore the people complaing about it being Apple only, i miss every one in real time because the timing
is usually not good for me, which is a notmal thing that people used to get. The endless whining from these douches about how you aren't catering hard enough to them in the comments is wearing, most of us are
just happy you are doing your thing. Thanks.
Frustration with the iPhone thing, but specially frustration with the fact that they don't provide a normal RSS file so that we can subscribe and get new episodes.
In the meantime, a request: could you post here a link to the audio file when it's ready? That'd be great. If it's too much to ask... I understand, I'll continue paying anyway :-)
Can someone please ask what's up with the name for Yang's theory? I find his arguments very interesting but the name "Successor Ideology" baffling and unhelpful. I don't understand how it relates to the theory itself. And having a good, catchy, descriptive name is useful in selling a theory.
Like your new format and the guests. The Kirn was excellent, and Yang is always fascinating. Can I request Martin Gurri soon?
aww, dog damn this effing Callin iphone-only app-of-the-day. you're having Wesley Yang on for a chat with only apple users. f this s, man!
For us android plebs, is there a way to listen (even if it's after you've finished)? I know we our lesser life forms and therefore our actual input isn't wanted but I'd love to hear your discussion, I like Yang. (Also, Callin not being available on Android is literally eugenics.)
(Very small voice) i like these podcasts way more than Useful Idiots. (back to normal volume) Walter Kirn was a gem! Can't wait to listen to this one, really enjoy Wesley's thoughtful writing on the successor ideology.
Another vote for an RSS feed if you could use your clout somehow - it'd be great if the episodes could flow into Pocketcasts where the silence can be autotrimmed and i have some more speed and volume options. Only takes like an hour or two to write a snippet of code that outputs an RSS feed given a database, if they're not doing it they're just being walled garden jerks
Matt, you are my favourite investigative journalist, but only letting people who use apple products participate in these kind of cool opportunities makes me want to not renew my subscription.
I'm an Android user and am happy to wait for the web version to be available. Thx for making this happen.
As I understand it, a commenter, John J’onzz, notes that one can listen to the talks that generally will be recorded and on the "Callin site" to be listened to through a browser. If true, can someone put the URL of the site? Thanks...
Yay! I stan Wesley Yang. He’s great on Twitter and also recommend reading his writing/essays.
Curious that Bernie Sanders does not appear in Yangs 2020 election narrative.
Where is the archive of this? I"m a locked out of callin subscriber due the platform issues. Surely there is more demand than just mine?
Would be great if Wes occasionally wrote something for his own substack that I’m also subscribed to
Is it up on Callin yet? I can’t find it…
Thanks... This should make the Podcasts available to any browser user soon? after it is streamed. I'm happy
Some of us live in hell holes with bad cell reception. Listen to you and Westley would have been such a treat. I'll settle for transcripts.
Excellent. Yang is brilliant and compassionate.
