The Periodic Apocalypse: Extermination of the Human Host???

On July 31st, 2009, The Periodic Apocalypse brought Daniel Coffeen, PhD, to perform an rhetorical diagnosis of the ways in which Parasitic Capitalism Consumes, Confines, and Controls.

DJ Prefect (that's yours truly) came prepared with sources, dropping doses of science on the discussion to widen the frame. Find links to the books and articles referenced below.

A PODCAST of this event can be downloaded here. (1hr 45mins)

The Pirate Cat Radio Cafe was packed! Representatives from Berkeley, Noisebridge, Pirate Cat Radio, and many independents made their appearance.

Many thanks to all who gave donations, which go to support having more shows like this in future.


The End of Overeating Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite by David Kessler (from whence the Cinnabon example in this discussion).

Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely - watch the author's talk at TED 2009 about "our buggy moral code".

Culture Code by Clotaire Rapaille, expert marketing consultant to Fortune 500 companies.

Interesting event! You did an outstanding job engaging Daniel in dialog and injecting science into the conversation. It's great to have all the referenced books/articles linked in one place here. I'm looking forward to the next one!
