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 1: They Built The Fjords

Amber and Sam get the measure of the last fortnight’s most important news and rumor, covering everything from Trump’s well cooked steak with ketchup to Mark Zuckerberg’s presidential potential. With cameos from Carl Sagan, man in the state of nature, the nation of Sweden, and Dame Judi Dench.
