THE JOINT

The Herb Whisperer and Fraserhead go all over the shop with an eclectic, left-field, and off-kilter selection of cosmic disco, electro, indie, hip-hop, house, dub, anything with a motorik vibe, plus the occasional guilty pleasure. If the radio sounds broken chances are it’s the THE JOINT.

The Show: Well, Suck. On. This.

25.03.2023

Never ceases to amaze us that, 20 years after the fact, media pundits who enthusiastically advocated for the Iraq war are still much sought after for their opinions by the likes of CNN, MSNBC, NYT, FOX ETC.

Thomas Friedman is a case in point.

I wouldn’t necessarily say that this:

disqualifies you from any future public discourse but how about, at the very least, a mea fucking culpa.

For a little bit more detail try RNZ’s Midweek Mediawatch at the 25s mark and the whole of this episode of NPR’s On The Media (but particularly from 11m 10s).

And on with the show…
