    Russell Brand fallout latest – plus you’re calling your kid that!?

    enSeptember 20, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • Russell Brand's media appearances face backlash, Rishi Sunak changes stance, education secretary's unconventional methodsRussell Brand faces allegations of rape, sexual, and emotional abuse, leading to removal of his media appearances and distancing of sponsors. Rishi Sunak changes stance on eco-friendly policies, drawing criticism. Education secretary uses unconventional methods and Papercuts airs every weekday morning.

      There have been significant developments in the news regarding Russell Brand's media appearances and allegations against him. The comedian's media appearances have been removed from streaming services and sponsors have distanced themselves from his online shows following investigations by The Times and The Sunday Times where four women accused him of crimes including rape, sexual, and emotional abuse. Brand has strongly denied these claims and said his relationships have always been consensual. Meanwhile, Rishi Sunak has changed his stance on the government's eco-friendly policies, leading to criticism from some newspapers. In other news, the education secretary has made headlines for her unconventional methods, including using an old blackboard instead of a modern whiteboard in schools. Papercuts, the modern newspaper review, will now be airing every weekday morning starting from September 25th.

    • Russell Brand's Controversial Past and Media ResponseMedia outlets respond differently to controversial figures and ongoing investigations. The BBC and Channel 4 removed Russell Brand's content, while Rumble, a video platform, became his new home. The concept of absolute free speech is complex and not without limitations.

      The media landscape is constantly evolving, and the case of Russell Brand and allegations against him serves as an example of how various media outlets respond to controversial figures and ongoing investigations. The Metropolitan Police has received a report of an alleged sexual assault from 2003, and more women have come forward with accusations. The BBC and Channel 4 have launched internal investigations and removed Brand's content from their streaming services. Rumble, a video platform known for its support of free speech, has become a new home for Brand, where he is now the fifth most popular contributor. The platform, founded by Chris Pavlovsky in 2013, aims to provide an alternative for smaller creators, but it's important to note that the concept of absolute free speech is a complex issue and not without its limitations. Additionally, Dan Bongino, a former Fox News presenter, is a significant financial backer of Rumble. Overall, this situation highlights the importance of ongoing investigations and the role of various media outlets in handling sensitive stories.

    • Comedian Faces Allegations and Urges Support on Free Speech PlatformThe entertainment industry is navigating the complexities of free speech and potential criminal charges in comedy, with a popular comedian turning to a free speech platform for support amid allegations. An unexpected naming incident in Australia adds to the ongoing discussions.

      The entertainment industry, specifically comedy, is grappling with unease and potential repercussions following high-profile cases involving free speech and potential criminal charges. A popular comedian, Brand, has urged his followers to support him on Rumble, a platform known for its commitment to free speech, as he faces allegations. The industry's response could significantly impact its ability to address long-standing issues and create a reckoning. Meanwhile, an Australian journalist made headlines when she attempted to name her child "Methamphetamine Rules" but was surprised to learn it was allowed. The incident highlights the complexities and potential consequences of naming choices, adding another layer to the ongoing discussions in the entertainment world.

    • Cultural Differences in Naming ChildrenDifferent countries have unique restrictions when naming children. Awkward encounters can arise from misunderstandings of unusual names. Creativity and humor are often seen in British media.

      There are cultural and legal differences when it comes to naming children around the world. While the UK allows for more freedom in choosing names, certain countries have restrictions. For instance, in Sweden, you cannot name your child Metallica, and in France, Nutella is off-limits. In Germany, Stone and Peppermint are not acceptable names. In Saudi Arabia, Linda was once banned. These are just a few examples. During a conversation at a grocery store, the speaker and her husband had an awkward encounter when the checkout girl was discussing potential names for her friend's child, which included the word "fellatio." The couple felt compelled to explain the meaning, much to the girl's shock. The discussion then shifted to unusual names in the UK, with examples like Lasagna and Garlic Bread from the 1970s. The speaker also shared that there are certain restrictions in the UK, such as not being able to use all numbers or call your kids after royalty or famous figures. In the news, there were interesting headlines, such as Samuel L. Jackson advertising for a crumpet firm and a photo of Buster from "Only Fools and Horses" being called "Hunkle Albert" on Twitter. These headlines showcase the creativity and humor often found in British media. Overall, the conversation and news stories highlight the importance of being aware of cultural differences and the unique quirks that come with naming conventions and media in various parts of the world.

    • UK PM Rishi Sunak's Net Zero U-Turn Sparks ControversyRishi Sunak's decision to delay and water down net zero commitments, including on boilers and car sales, faces criticism from Tory politicians and environmental groups. His personal views and the Uxbridge by-election result may be driving factors.

      Rishi Sunak, the current UK Prime Minister, is rolling back on the government's net zero commitments, and this decision is causing controversy within his own party. The delay and watering down of plans to phase out certain types of boilers and the sale of petrol or diesel cars, as well as new taxes to discourage flying and policies to encourage carpooling, have been met with criticism from some Tory politicians and environmental groups. Sunak's actions are surprising given that net zero was a significant part of the 2019 Conservative Party manifesto. Moreover, Sunak's personal views on green policies are seen as right-wing, with some critics labeling him as having "Republican American" vibes. The Uxbridge by-election result and Sunak's personal dislike for green policies are believed to be driving factors behind this decision. However, not all Conservatives share this view, and some, like Chris Skidmore, have spoken out against it. The controversy raises questions about the political alignment of green issues and the potential short-sightedness of this decision, given that many Tory voters hold pro-environment views.

    • Aging and Environmental Concerns Lead to Strong Emotions and ActionsAs we age, we become more conscious of our impact on the environment, leading to strong emotions and actions such as changing disposal habits over microplastics in tea bags. In politics, leaders like Keir Starmer navigate complex issues like Europe's future and closer integration while avoiding alienating voters.

      As we age, we become more conscious of our consumption and its impact on the environment, sometimes leading to strong emotions and actions. For instance, some people are now concerned about microplastics in tea bags and have changed their disposal habits. Meanwhile, in politics, there are ongoing discussions about the future of Europe and the potential for closer integration among certain countries. Keir Starmer, the UK Labour Party leader, is trying to navigate these complex issues while avoiding alienating voters. The proposed European plan, which resembles Charlemagne's empire from the 9th century, suggests an inner ring of closely integrated countries, an existing EU, associate membership, and a wider political community. However, Starmer must tread carefully and avoid taking any major steps that could potentially cost him votes. The situation is unusual, with many people assuming and hoping that Starmer is lying about certain matters. Overall, these conversations highlight the importance of environmental awareness and the complexities of political leadership.

    • Strange realities of modern life: politics and relationshipsPolitics and relationships reveal strange realities in modern life, from fear of expressing true views to the use of emojis for breaking up relationships, leading to confusion and miscommunication.

      The political landscape in the country is in a strange state where the labor party is hesitant to express their true views due to fear of backlash. Meanwhile, in less serious news, the use of emojis for breaking up relationships, known as emoji dumping, has become a common trend, with a third of people reportedly experiencing it. However, not everyone understands the message, leading to confusion and miscommunication. Despite the light-hearted topic, both stories discussed on Papercuts today had grim undertones. The Guardian reported on a new podcast, Hooked on Freddy, which delves into the 1990s tabloid frenzy over a court case where a Manchester man was accused of masturbating a dolphin. The other story discussed was the phenomenon of emoji dumping, where people end relationships through simple emojis, leading to misunderstandings and hurt feelings. The use of emojis for such sensitive matters raises questions about the effectiveness and appropriateness of digital communication in personal relationships. Overall, the episode highlighted the strange and often grim realities of modern life, from politics to relationships.

    • Collaborative effort from various roles and expertise creates multimedia projectsA successful multimedia project requires contributions from writers, presenters, editors, producers, musicians, and executives, all working together to bring a compelling story to life.

      That creating a multimedia project, as demonstrated by the team behind "Papercuts," requires a collaborative effort from various individuals with different roles and expertise. Miranda Sawyer, John Elich, and Finn Taylor wrote and presented the project, while Andrew Harrison served as the group editor and Jacob Jarvis managed the news. Production support was provided by Adam Wright, and Liam Tate produced the project. Simon Williams handled music and audio production, and Martin Boitosch served as the executive producer. Each team member brought unique skills and contributions to the table, ultimately resulting in a polished and engaging multimedia piece.

    Episode 20: The [Un]Sanctioned Citizen Podcast

    Episode 20:  The [Un]Sanctioned Citizen Podcast

    We are making preparations for the budding of the [Un]Sanctioned Citizen podcast at Callin.com.

    https://www.callin.com/user/unsanctioned_citizen

    3/13 UPDATE:  To no real surprise to anyone your Host admits to oversecuritized microphone settings.  I liken it to hiding a safe key code so well even you cannot find it.  So until the microphone and other hyper-private settings are managed, I am moving forward with old school guest-talk interview formatting, to post right here at Podomatic.  

    We really like Callin because you can have a panel of guests and issue commmentators on for a discuss and then open the phone partition to take caller questions and frame the discussion. 

    Callin is going to be awesome because you can produce Town Halls and side bar public input comments on issues where say, Zoom locks you out of US City Hall meetings. Meetings where no one is admitting the public in-person to deliver comments and everyone is still wearing masks. This models as an excuse to not serve and not answer the public, yet still tax us for those services.  [If this is you, Callin.com.]

    We needed a port in a storm of phone applications hang ups. So we are posting the flagship content here.  It's going to require a visit to the phone service to unlock some of the microphone applications options.  You cannot yet upload static mp3 files to Callin, yet!  While it would be cool to drop in cutaways from prior recordings, I think the point is to have an open dialogue.  It's not just for you to talk but for others to talk as well.

    There is currently no Callin phone schedule to date.  I will be updating this post with some air-times.  We may have to experiment with air-times that are going to work for other people to listen in and participate.  So what may happen is we have one Callin with a Guest for a good while, semi-longform. Think midi vs maxi in airtime length. The reason is we want other people to get on and talk.  From there, I will just have the Guest call back in. Then we can take some calls. 

    So here is an example of what it might look like:

    ROOM TITLE: "GOOGLE  SHOOTS DOWN SPACEX SATELLITE, COMMENTARY BY #1 NERD EVER".
    It lasts for approximately 30 minutes.  We announce a move to  the "Green Room Discussion".  We end this room and start another room, titled "[Un]Sanctioned Green Room with #1 NERD EVER".

    WHAT YOU WOULD DO:
     
    1) Get a Callin profile using a phone number of choice.  If you want to use a burner number you can.  There are ways to do it with the Burner app, but just choose a phone you can use that Callin will like and accept for either single or multiple uses.
    2) Enable your phone and your settings to allow access to your microphone.  You can revoke access for privacy later.  This is so if you want to call in on Callin, you can actually talk.
    3) I'll do my best to screen for people I know vs. complete strangers. Developed relations with my show increases your chances dramatically that you can speak.  I am still learning content moderation policies and options as a Callin talker. 
    4) Invite me to your show so I can drop in and thank you for stopping by at a later time AND HAVE FUN!

    Destroying Society: Why Woke Culture Has Gone Too Far... | Konstantin Kisin Pt 1
    You should be aware of social inequalities that perpetuate injustice, but where does awareness cross the line and potentially become harmful to you and the society you’re part of? Konstantin Kisin is a comedian, social commentator and podcast host of the show TRIGGERnometry which celebrates freedom of speech. He’s had guest on such as Bill Maher and Ben Shapiro while tackling the harder conversations around woke culture, war, and highly sensitive politics most people avoid.  Konstantin has been named Jewish comedian of the year and has played at some of the UK’s biggest comedy clubs. In this two part episode Konstantin is discussing woke culture, the idea that victimhood sells and is therefore incentivized to younger people. Tom and Konstantin explore the Western culture values that should be preserved and the danger of a toxic culture that rather complain about injustices that actually go to work on finding real solutions and fixing problems/ The idea of trading things that work for ideas that merely sound good is discussed quite a bit and it’s influenced by Thomas Sowell’s quote from his book Is Reality Optional, “much of the social history of the Western world over the past three decades has involved replacing what worked with what sounded good.” Follow Konstantin Kisin: Website: http://konstantinkisin.com/  Twitter: https://twitter.com/KonstantinKisin  Podcast: https://www.triggerpod.co.uk/  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/konstantinkisin/  SPONSORS: This episode is sponsored by BetterHelp.
