Diarrhea Planet & Dystopian Futurism
Derek Evers and guest co-host Dayna Evans are talking about the future with Nashville's Diarrhea Planet and Devon Maloney, writer for Pitchfork and Wired. Derek and Dayna play everyone's favorite game, 'two truths and lie', with Diarrhea Planet. Find out if any members of the band have been in a cop movie, and hear from guitarist Brent 'out of context'. Later, Devon Maloney talks about why publishers are shying away from writing about dystopia. Is it because dystopian futurism mirrors modern day? Find out on this week's episode of Nothing Urgent!
