114: Fan Cams & CHAZ Fans

Released Monday, 15th June 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
Tess is off this week so Molly and Emily are joined by Night Call’s fabulous producer Joelle Monique! We start off with an email from a listener who was disappointed with our Lana Del Rey talk recently and take the opportunity to examine our own blind spots. We solicit more critiques from our listeners, and ask how we can be more helpful during this critical time in our country’s history. Then it’s a trip to the CHAZ! Emily learned about the history of autonomous zones and yes it does get weird. The connection to Burning Man and Santa Con is unveiled, and Emily provides the requisite Seattle context for the CHAZ and the French origins of the ZAD. Then we are joined by boy band expert Maria Sherman, author of the new book Larger Than Life, to dive into the recent radicalization of k-pop stans online. Sherman explains what exactly the “fan cams” are that stans have been overloading American police departments asking for footage of rioters with. Night Call is an autonomous zone of the MIND!
