The compost boys are back and have a fresh bucket of scraps from their pet columnist, Alan Guebert!   James and Jared stick their pitchforks back into the pile of current events by looking at the furor surrounding TikTok. An inexplicable social media app like most others, TikTok has recently riled the bastions of American power by happening to be from China. We examine this and other protectionist trade developments between the world’s two largest economies through the twisted lens of Guebert’s ‘Farm and Food File’. Let’s see how a boomer from Illinois with a column about the ag industry ..read more

Quantum Composting with Sisyphus’s Pitchfork
The Compost Bin of History
by Compost Bin of History
1y ago
James and Jared poke their pitchforks into the very firmament of reality on this episode of Compost Bin of History. Seeking to uncover the "why" of physical existence, James delves into quantum mechanics and tries to get his explanation past the least credulous person east of the Missouri, Jared. We explore the philosophical implications of the universe's ontology, the "big bang" itself, and some of the physical evidence for it. Examining the work of recent Noble Laureate Roger Penrose, we find evidence for a compost cosmology, and, in-line with our recent vein of esotericism, validate ancient ..read more

Hogslop for Neoliberals

Hosts Jared and James check in with their chief source of compostables, Alan Guebert, of the Farm and Food File. You’ll remember Guebert from our first episode, “Big Meat Made It’s Pitch”, and his takes continue to be that of the safest of centrist liberals. This time, we read Guebert’s meta-analysis of the phenomenon of neoliberalism and it’s profound impact on agriculture. Unfortunately, his contribution is only half composted, and needs some significant pitchforking by yours truly. We discuss: What is a neoliberal, anyway? How does this ideology help us understand the political developments ..read more

Notorious Cactus Pirates, Jared and James, go periodical on the fanciest element, Gold!   In the first episode of this new series we review atomic theory, the immortal science of alchemy, and the properties of the most coveted element on the crust of this-here earth.

Curious themes already emerging in this series: slavery and exploitation, violence towards women, and being terrible to your family. I’m sure a better podcast would synthesize these to ..read more

Bowie Two - Speculative Boogaloo
The Compost Bin of History
by Compost Bin of History
1y ago
Picking up where we left off - we follow a broke, bored, and ambitious young man as he explores the enticing world of speculative assets. Spanish land claims become the NFTs of 1821 Louisiana, and Jim Bowie coordinates one of the most spectacular rug pulls in history.  A man who loves to start fights comes up against the bureaucratic might of the young nation's registrars and repeatedly steps in it. Political polarization poses both threats and opportunities for those with loose morals and a willingness to collapse the contradictions of the frontier within themselves, and manifest destiny ..read more
