Welcome to this Baffler podcast. WHALE VOMIT is an entertaining yet cutting state of the union delivered by Amber A’Lee Frost and Sam Kriss, with the ocean between them.

Episode 5: Startup Monarchy

In our fifth episode, Amber and Sam consider whether Prince Philip is a log and the queen a robot, judge Trump’s first 100 days, and wrestle with the question: “Is Sam’s fake news story about a Chelsea Clinton hit and run . . . art?”
