An Ear For Baby is a podcast that takes its name and theme from a song on The Thermals' seminal 2006 record The Body, The Blood, The Machine. The song is a cheerful manifesto from a fictional fascist leader in the near future whose m.o. is building walls, imposing a morality he himself lacks on others, and depleting natural resources for his own gain. The podcast is a bunch of people from diverse fields worried about that future being nearer than we (or the Thermals) thought. But there are also jokes, and interviews with people who have some ideas on how we can make the world a bit less garbage in these decidedly garbage-y political times.
