I've been remiss in failing to upload the latest episode of The Podcast Formerly Known As NSFWLIVE. Which is a shame because this is one of my favourites to date.

In this episode, my guest is NSFWCORP/Pando's own Mark Ames who has a bone to pick over the media's coverage of the "Russian" DNC hacks. As the new(ish) father of a half-Russian child, Mark worries about the lack of clear evidence of Russian involvement in the hacks -- something which hasn't stopped everyone framing "the Russians" as the villains of the piece.

Relatedly, we also talk about rumours that NSFWCORP/Pando are unwitting Russian agents, and also the demise of (possibly unwitting Russian agents) Gawker. The whole conversation is a blast and, if you're our of our Patreon supporters, likely exactly the kind of show you had in mind when you signed up.

Thanks as ever to all those Patrons. We couldn't do the show without you.

Now, better late than never, here's the episode:
