Ep 112: Capitalist Realism



In this episode, we chat about "Capitalist Realism" by Mark Fisher. It's like a two-person book club that you can listen in on? More seriously, we talk about Fisher's argument about mental health and its direct correlation with capitalism. **trigger warning for discussions about mental health causation** Fisher also has some things to say about students and the "communicative sensation-stimulus matrix" which we also dive into. And before all that we talk about the Gillette ad that has a few select men's undies in a bundle. *** TIMESTAMPS 00:00-5:00 check-ins 5:01-14:36 Gillette Ad 14:45-49:30 Capitalist Realism 50:00-end RWL *** Original music for FKJ PhD by Emily Jane Powers.
