Paul Krassner "When Fake Was Fun"

Ep. 144

Playing for Team Human today radical activist, counter-cultural icon, and founder of The Realist magazine, Paul Krassner (1932-2019).


Krassner and Rushkoff explore how the combination of fabricated news, scandals and outrage - otherwise known as mind fucking - were once the tools employed by anarchic activists. They discuss how a one-time violin prodigy became the pioneer of the US underground press, and how being an optimist might be our best defence against the challenging times we face. 


In his opening monologue, Rushkoff shares how we might make the internet a more human-friendly domain through a simple response to the net’s original sin: algorithmic customization.
