This week on Nothing Urgent, Derek Evers and Christopher Robbins begin the show with Mish Way of the Vancouver bands White Lung and Eating Out. Tune in to hear Mish talk about her work in music and writing, and why she isn’t necessarily bothered by misogynist lyrics. Listen in to hear Mish talk about being a woman in the boys’ club that is punk rock, and hear her musings on the state of chivalry. Later, Andy Greenberg, writer for Forbes and author of This Machine Kills Secrets, returns with updates regarding the Deep Web and the online black market. Find out about the downfall of the infamous online drug lord, The Dread Pirate Roberts, and why his idealistic image has been tainted with violent allegations. Why has the value of Bitcoin risen since the capture of Ross Ulbricht? Find out all of this and more on this installment of Nothing Urgent! Thanks to our sponsor, BluePrint Cleanse.
“So much, especially with music, is a performance. What you’re doing on-stage is such a small part of who you are!” [14:30]

“I sympathized with the Dread Pirate Roberts that I talked to… I could tell what he was trying to do was a civil, social, libertarian sort of experiment… Violence wasn’t supposed to be a part of it.” [36:30]
