Ep.130 - GB News, Deepfake Porn & Joe Conzo, Jr.

In a week where:

  1. Brisbane, Australia is tapped to host 2032 Summer Olympics
  2. National Geographic announce a fifth Ocean (Southern)
  3. Euro 2020 kicks off. 
  4. It's been four years since the Grenfell Tower Fire.
  5. Benjamin Netanyahu is ousted by the Israeli coalition.

In Sports: (5:04) When football returned without fans, I wondered whether non-white players secretly liked the fact that they didn't receive racial abuse every Saturday. Well, I nearly got an answer. Non-White Serie A players actually played better without fans.

In Film/TV: (20:12) GB News is finally here and its virality in the early days sets a dangerous precedent for a UK Media landscape that is already a bit of a cesspool.

In Life: (37:22) You know Deepfakes, you might know Deepfake Porn. But whilst it only affects sex workers & victims of revenge Porn now. This could be a cultural slippery slope if we don't gain empathy about both affected parties.

Lastly, in Music: (55:26) Joe Conzo, Jr is a local legend in The Bronx. But to people in Hip-Hop circles, he is a hero in the efforts to preserve the earliest moments of Hip-Hop history. One picture at a time.
