More Content Talk

At times we are hilarious. Sometimes we are outlandish, others provocative, but always informative. More Content Talk dares to peel back the veneer of proper manners, and bring the news to you straight, no chaser, In order to do that we have to call things how we see it. The world unfolds very much like a true crime saga. Whether you are reading about the abuse of power of current leaders, the intrigue of European monarchs or the religious conquests of Ancient Rome, there is no escaping it: we are surrounded by criminality. We bring you the crime sagas of history that most have merely skimmed. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/morecontentplease/support

episode 223: Less Than A Statue


In America we are constantly reminded that we have no real value, not the kind that big time executives and the captains of industry desire anyway...

episode 222: Crackhead from ESPN Claims Barrack Obama Is Not Black Enough to be Black


I know that most drugs in moderation are harmless, but I still am going to give you this public service announcement nonetheless. Kids, I told you once and I will tell you again, do not do crack. It messes with your brain and turns you into a loud mouth with everything to prove and nothing important to say. Though the side effects of crack (the loudness, the abrasiveness, the openness to experience, the sudden nonsensical outbursts, etc...

episode 221: Dr. Instagram, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Photo Bomb


Instagram has been getting some pretty negative coverage lately because a recent study, along with several whistle blowers, have indeed confirmed that the famed face obsessed site is a breeding ground for self-hatred when it comes to young people. This is much less a question of the media's effects on young people, as it is a critique of the unrealistic filters Instagram employs...

episode 221: From Hero to Zero: How America Always Abandons Its Heroes


Do you remember how America sung the praises of firefighters after the September 11, 2001 attacks? I do; I remember it very well. The heroes, as they were then called, became almost synonymous with celebrities, especially with the celebrities who instructed their fans to do the same. Big business also capitalized on the firefighter craze, making several box office smashes (and blunders), children's books and graphic novels based on firefighting. But that was not all...

episode 220: A Strong Voice Attracts and Repels


Strength is not well like in America, not real strength anyway. No one likes a downer. Everyone loves a joker. This is an observable fact about American politics. Crack a few jokes about grabbing women by their privates and you could be the next president. Leak some information about Dave Chapelle's next comedy special and your ass is out the door. That is just the way America is. So it takes a really strong person to stand up for what they know is right, what they know to be the truth...

episode 219: The Racist History of Pseudoarchaeology and "Ancient Aliens"


The ancient aliens argument has racism written all over it. Of course no one likes to be called a racist because that may mean having to admit that something they did was wrong and we all know how opposed people are to admitting wrongdoing. Nevertheless, the cult following of pseudoarchaeology, also known as alternative archaeology remains a very real threat to civilization itself...

episode 218: "Make The Monsters Bigger", or How Consumerism Destroyed Hollywood


Creativity is not allowed. Originality is frowned upon. Thought is highly discouraged. Kindness is weakness. You are not an individual; you are a paycheck to the executive board of operations for a major conglomerate corporation. You are an algorithm, a marketing gimmick, a sales pitch waiting to happen. There is no hope for a better tomorrow because Hollywood sold our tomorrows to big corporations many yesterdays ago, in the 1940s to be exact...

episode 217: Hungry, Hungry HIPAAs


Uh-oh, anti-maskers are at it again, and this time it is about the very core values of American society, meaning the value menus at your local Burger King, McDonald's and Subway. Anti maskers and fast food go together like Nazis and bad fashion sense. These people love them some deep fat fried donuts with powdered sugar and a microwaved burger patty in between those donuts with extra bacon and secret sauce. I mean, these people are always starting something with fast food employees...

episode 216: Fandamentalists


Nope, that is no typo. Fandamentalism is real; the dictionary just has not caught up to reality yet. But, trust me, it will in due time. English is a notoriously slow language, but it always catches on in the end. So, what is fandamentalism, you ask? Well, for many, fandom is the new religion. That may seem like an overstatement. I mean, most people do not fall down on their knees and pray to the televisions, especially if the big game is not on...

episode 214: Remember, Remember The Strike of September


Sorry, no Guy Fawkes nursery rhymes here; this is an all American affair. Of course no one planned to go on strike in America. There were no meetings of American workers. There were no staged attempts at political theater. There were no riots in the streets. There were no calls to action. There were no slime ball politicians looking to add to their twitter followings. There were no jerk off celebrities trying to stay relevant by appearing to care. There were few labor union discussions...
