Episode details

Carly & Lil Internet reflect on their time, these past 2 weeks, in the USA—mostly in Maryland and Virginia—with spoken monologues on life/death cycles and the spectrum of real vs. simulation.

Part 1, written by Carly, includes notes on flat design and the neo-Catholic church; sports betting and direct-to-consumer prescription pharmaceutical marketing; the failed Renaissance start-up that underwrote Jamestown, Virginia; and how Taylor Sheridan’s Yellowstone, may save us all.

This is part of one of three America Diaries we’ll be releasing in the coming days. Lil Internet’s monologue is next up, followed by a bonus essay by writer, strategist, and NM member Ian Beckman Reagan.

Regular NM interview pods will resume the following week.
