This week, Nate is joined in studio by friend of the show and repeat guest Milo Edwards (@Milo_Edwards) of the Trashfuture and Masters of Our Domain podcasts, to discuss the recent story about French generals threatening to do a coup against Emmanuel Macron if he isn’t even more Islamophobic. We also discuss a similar phenomenon in Britain, in which the specter of a military coup was wielded to threaten Jeremy Corbyn.

Check out Milo’s live stand-up show (to be streamed over Zoom!) on May 30th here:

For this week’s bonus, Francis speaks with Will Nguyen, also known as the Star Trek Commie (@boomerniner) about Star Trek's communist underpinnings, the way it represents different modes of production, the different conflicts it represents (and the dark side of the Federation), and why it's fun to just talk about it for hours.
