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 4: The Wave of the Future

Amber A’Lee Frost and Sam Kriss set the world to rights, covering the British election that is suddenly happening, the French election that just half-happened, the strange rise of fascism among under-twenty-five-year-olds, and the use of allegory in Roland Topor’s Fantastic Planet and Disney’s Zootopia.
