Radio creates a wealth of community, connection and the simple pleasures of mystery and anticipation. Live broadcast elicits a challenge and asks both listener and presenter for their attention & curiosity. Our bi-monthly Newtown Radio program is now available to stream & download on-demand as a Podcast via your favorite platform, starting with last week’s great experience with poet & A Perfect Vacuum editor Judah Rubin taking listener calls on the godhead & potato chips, Supermarket Sweep & rib sustainability, Jim Carrey’s 90s incel trilogy, the New York ferry system as a viable form of transport, and much more. You can subscribe to keep up with all future and past episodes at Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or TuneIn, with more to come, and you can always catch the show every other Monday, 9-11pm Eastern US time at Newtown Radio. Choose wisely, & listen carefully.

We designed Radical American Hippy Kraut to meet the semi-necrotic but self-assured geriatric ambling last dance of patriarchy, monoculture, and the society of the unbound prioritized self. From a coffee shop-bar-workshare-space identical to many others came the elemental code to the disruptor class’ ribbons of co-cultivating career gossamer light, and we’ve harvested this code to design instructions for developing higher pathways for the exchange of compassion and psyber-spiritual healing. The block chain prosperity silicon contagion continues to spread as the Earth is cannibalized by its children, who under duress of the elephanthead patriarchy succumb to the compulsion to auto-post and life stream until we’re reduced to piles of calcium dust atop shattered Lucite frames—but Wharp and Rom’s thundering motor drums rattle on in radical contrast! The group-self think grand optimization singularity is upon us, and thus we devote ourselves to dyspiritual para-American affective labor towards sculpting the counter-hymn of righteous joy and ecstatic hope against the unending statist drone of the convenience supremacist untopia.
Radical American Hippy Kraut is a collaborative project betweenTime Wharp and CH Rom, due out 3/29 on vinyl and all digital platforms as a joint release between Astro Nautico and JASS.
