This episode features Molly Mary O'Brien of And Introducing and Infinite Cast. We start off with an extended riff on Sad Girls – Phoebe Bridgers, Fiona Apple, Lana Del Rey, Angel Olsen, Mitski – before veering off into a tangent about band merch that includes discussion of Jenny Lewis, Nine Inch Nails, Vampire Weekend, Pom Pom Club, and...the Hambu…
 
WARNING: The episode contains a lot of dumb media talk. This week Ryan and Luke do their best to explain why everyone cares about newsletters all of a sudden. Does the fact a bunch of annoying White Guys In Media started newsletters mean the entire thing is bad now? (The answer is no.) Also, Luke explains why all of the UK was fighting about a phot…
 
In the second episode of our Trump series, we explore some of President Donald Trump's greatest Twitter auto and micro-fictions, with our friend Alex Ptak, who you might know from Pod Damn America and Ballin' Out Super. ----more---- We visit the secret Mausoleum of Trump Tweets to discuss, analyse and marvel at the greatest poster, not just of our …
 
This week, like The Avengers, we arise from the wreckage of the U.S. president election and take stock of which platforms screwed up the least bad. Facebook seemed to be alright for a day or two. Twitter has been pretty diligent too. YouTube? Not so much! Also, Ryan forces Luke to talk about that Joe Biden Endgame video.…
 
A sad day here at the 10kpostspod HQ, as we watch the US election, and see the demise of the world's best poster, thanks to the social justice left. We talk about the election results, but more importantly, we use a recent BBC Documentary, "Trump in Tweets", to try understand why @RealDonaldTrump isn't just a great poster, but a truly innovative po…
 
It's a bit of a crazy episode this week. Luke is in full work mode and Ryan is still on the road. But they promised you an election episode and by god, they're going to give you. Luke shares his theory that Facebook has created a brand new voting bloc — the low-trust voter. And Ryan shares his theory that most people in America actually want better…
 
In this special, spoooky Halloween episode, we talk about Francis Fukuyama, and why he's so mad about the decorative Skeletons from the Disney-Pixar movie Coco. We also defend the End of History simply because Fukuyama once travelled forward in time and realised that after 1992, everything was posting.We also talk about dog fighting version of the …
 
This week, Ryan and Luke were asked to solve a mystery for one of their listeners: Why is my Facebook feed full of weird "prank" videos and stupid street magic? They also talk about British 4chan users and the dream of being an incredibly basic man working in sales who lives in the suburbs.
 
On this (uncharacteristically long, but characteristically late) episode, we talk about 'chaotic energy' and the only poster worthy enough to be granted such a title : Jameela Jamil.----more----You might know Jamil from The Good Place, or as a host on Saturday morning T4. But online, she is an enigma; A seemingly successful celebrity who, despite n…
 
VTubers are suddenly everywhere. They're AI-powered cartoon anime avatars that stream for hours on platforms like YouTube and Twitch. Luke, before this week, didn't know anything about them. But unfortunately for him, Ryan did a big deep dive into the bizarre companies that own these avatars and now we've got to talk about it. It's weird. It's extr…
 
In this (once again) very late episode, we talk about one of our favourite days in 2015, when the whole world came together online to come to terms with the fact that Prime Minister David Cameron put his (possibly mid?) dick inside a pig. It was a moment that Cameron can't ever escape from, which means he has done what we wish we all could : log of…
 
It's the episode maybe some of you have been waiting for! We're talking about Facebook. It controls the whole world and makes everyone totally miserable. This week, Luke shares the question he's had since 2018: Is the algorithm that powers Facebook stronger and more effective than the algorithm that runs America, i.e. the constitution. This all sou…
 
This week we have a GIANT-SIZED episode for you. Luke and Ryan came up with a list of the 13 most toxic fandoms on the internet and then they attempted to pick just one that is more toxic than all the others. It wasn't easy. There is a lot happening in this episode. Luke yells about books. Ryan has a meltdown about Star Wars. It's a real emotional …
 
After a bit of a hiatus (because work sucks, I know), we're back with a seemingly now outdated episode, but nonetheless, charting a historical moment in the history of posts. We talk about the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the strange phenomenon of "Ruthkanda" among the Liberal Posterati. Which leads us to talk about Paul Krugman who, while winn…
 
Fake influencers. Weird marketing companies. Fake Instagram backdrops. Multi-level-marketing TikTok companies. Nothing online feels real anymore but also feels more important than ever. It wasn't always like this! But now everyone acts like it's normal. Why? When did this change? And does it matter? Also, Luke and Ryan have an extremely long conver…
 
This episode happened by accident. We were supposed to talk about a very powerful poster, but got too carried away with the cold open, that it became the first "Tweets of the week" show. In this episode, we talk about two kinds of baby - one covered in butter, and one not. And then, we talk about how John Milbank, one of the "Blue Labour" philosoph…
 
This week Luke and Ryan are talking about small towns! Specifically, what has been happening to small towns on Facebook. Weird conspiracy theories. Toxic fighting. Weird drama. In a world where your local community probably doesn't have a newspaper anymore but definitely has a bunch of deranged Facebook Groups, things can get pretty damn confusing.…
 
It's an election episode! Luke and Ryan have basically ignored the election for the last few months, but this week they're finally getting into it. Ryan shares his theory that Hillary Clinton saying Pokémon Go to the polls was the most important political moment of the last four years and then Luke says a bunch of more sensible things about politic…
 
On this week's (very late) episode, we talk about the 90's movie "Hackers" - a vision of what a world where this thing called "the internet" might change society somewhat, and how a group of sexy, crop-topped teenagers who would later go on to work at Google and Palantir, are the only people who can stop it. We also talk about whether dinosaurs are…
 
Luke and Ryan dive into the world of TikTok content houses. Hype House, Sway House, Club House, there are too many to keep track of! What would be like, psychologically, to live in a house full of other influencers grinding for internet traffic? Probably pretty bad! They also talk about British indie rock from the mid-00s. Ryan also lists his vario…
 
On this very late edition of the pod, we're joined by Ryan Broderick, who writes the very good (but sadly, Hentai sparse) Garbage Day newsletter, covering all the weird, bizarre and surreal elements of the online hellworld. He also is a co-host of "The Content Mines" podcast.We were meant to talk about Bodybuilders dot com, specifically, a 2008 thr…
 
We've put it off for a few weeks now, but we're finally getting into it. Let's talk about Q. Luke and Ryan start things off with their first introductions to the bizarre and dangerous (and incredibly asinine) conspiracy theory and also try and unpack where they think this whole thing is headed. Global religion? Weird forgotten quirk of history? Wil…
 
Luke and Ryan canceled their plans for an episode on QAnon this week because another story had come to light that required their attention: The teenage furry who spent seven years filling up the Scots-language Wikipedia with gibberish. This is a BIG episode and there is a lot in it. They talk about linguistics, Scottish history, colonialism, the br…
 
Our guest rescheduled, so this was a last-minute episode where we talk about Emma Kennedy's amazing tweet about how a deer spontaneously combusted, and how a CIA agent is the only person who has seen pictures. We also talk about whether bootleg anime is a form of imperialism, and we discuss the 2017 movie "Downsizing", where everyone becomes a Shor…
 
We're talking about witch internet this week! Summer's windy down, spooky season is starting, and recently a group of baby witches cursed the moon. What does that mean? Hell if we know, but we're going to do our best to guide you through it. Also, Ryan went to a psychic in 2019 who told him that 2020 was going to be a really good year for him. What…
 
Reddit's r/relationships subreddit is a treasure trove of dysfunction and misery. Luke is convinced every single post is fake. Ryan is certain that every post is real. Click play if you want to listen to them fight about it for over 50 minutes. Also, this episode was recorded on literally one of the hottest days of the year in both the northeast of…
 
This week, we examine Britain's finest actor, Danny Dyer, who, while promoting a movie about a guy with two wives, posted one of the greatest tweets about 9/11. In so doing, he insulted the Taliban so much that there was no Islamic ruling of what could or should be done with him.We also talk about how 9/11 killed Nu Metal, the psychology of Essex, …
 
The US Army has an eSports team. The US Army's eSports team streams on Twitch. A lot of people are very mad about this. In the UK, apparently the British military is using a podcast about the reality show Love Island to recruit people. Everything's really weird! Luke and Ryan try to wrestle with the very morally strange world of online army recruit…
 
In this episode we debut Chad Phoebe, who has finally been released from the tin can voice prison and no longer sounds like an angry goose. We talk about Robbie Tripp, the guy who defined the term "wife guy", simply for proclaiming his love for his Curvy Wife - and how that spurned an entire genre of Wife Guys, who simply cannot get over the fact t…
 
What is Cottagecore? Is it just a simple trend on TikTok and Instagram about getting back to a simpler life — one that involves a cottage? Or is it some weird new way internet fascists are radicalizing teens? Or is it both? Luke and Ryan try their best to get to the bottom of this extremely important online mystery. Along they way, though, they get…
 
On this episode, we talk about one of our favourite Tweeters, Brandy Jensen, who summarised the hell site, and why none of us will ever log off, better than anyone.https://twitter.com/BrandyLJensen/status/1263850501705170945 As always, we urge you to donate to bail funds and organisations helping people most at risk of impunity by the state. You ca…
 
Luke and Ryan dig into the cringey, but beautiful legacy of peak Tumblr. They explore that one fateful weekend in Chicago when a bunch of grifters convinced Tumblr cosplayers to invade an unsuspecting hotel in Chicago to attend the ill-fated DashCon. They also look at what Luke refers to as the beginning of the "era of mass-produced viral content."…
 
There's a lot of words in that title that are probably confusing and I refusing to explain any of them. This week we have Alex Hern, UK technology editor for the Guardian, and he's going to try to explain why the name of the UK's biggest political scandal of the coronavirus age is stuck in Twitter's porn filter. WARNING: This episode contains repea…
 
This week is a real good! Forget last week. This is prime time. We've got Ikran Dahir, reporter for BuzzFeed News, talking about a mysterious countdown the K-Pop group BTS is doing on Twitter and we've got Abby Ohlheiser, internet culture reporter for the MIT Technology Review, talking about how she can't stop watching real-time YouTube reenacts of…
 
This week it's just Ryan and Luke! We wanted to catch up on a few things we've been putting off for a few weeks. We dissect how Robert Pattinson eats, have a bunch of needless arguments about the differences between Americans and British people, and then finish the episode by ranting about Buffy The Vampire Slayer. All in all, a pretty good week.…
 
New week, new nonsense. We've got author Dan Dalton on the show and he's very excited to talk to us about an RPG he's been playing that he claims is almost as good as being able to go outside and experience normal life. Also, Verge reporter Julia Alexander is back to break down how the movie Trolls: World Tour has changed movie history forever.…
 
This week we're taking it easy. Back to basics. Focusing on what makes this show work, you know? We have Brian Feldman, internet culture reporter and writer of the Bnet newsletter, and he decided all he wanted to talk about was some weird meme he found on Facebook. WARNING: This episode contains a lot of Marvel movies talk. We swear, once it's out …
 
This week is very special. We have Julia Furlan, who currently is working on podcasts for Vox Media, and Katie Notopoulos, senior reporter for BuzzFeed News. They once worked on a podcast with Ryan called Internet Explorer. So if you liked that podcast, you'll probably sorta kinda like this one too.
 
Welp! Here we're back. This week we have Andrew Gauthier, the former Director of Digital Content for Kamala Harris, talking about how the internet helped him awaken a love for hunting for mushrooms, Ellie Hall, senior reporter for BuzzFeed News, talking about the drama going on inside subreddits dedicated to tracking unstable mothers-in-law, and Bi…
