Agitator began as the real-time documentation of street-bred novelists fighting to get it out the mud while cutting up about anime and developing a craft manifesto along the way. Having established an independent multimedia company that is taking off, the show is now where these two mystic juggalo weebs freestyle stories live each episode and bring behind-the-scenes perks to their paid subscribers.

We're freestyling the concept and premise of a sprawling sword & sorcery/survival horror epic, after we diagnose the problems of today's youth, eulogize Steve Albini as much as he deserves it, pontificate better ways to approach open-world gaming than the endless side-questing and modifying, and discuss our favorite shows a little bit.

We kick off the show talking shop and breaking down pretentiousness as laziness, then move into the current state of mediocrity in rap music and what makes Kendrick one of the worst to ever rock the mic. Also: who dissed Drake best? And "can I say it?" We miss you, DMX.

Agitator boy Kelby was flying solo holding it down for the Broken River crew at Ghoulish Fest in San Antonio. Shouts out Max Booth III and Lori Booth for the hard work throwing and promoting that; there was a major turnout of locals ready to buy weird and fucked up books. On this special boots-on-the-ground episode, Kelby is chopping it up with author (and psychiatric professional) Michael Tichy bout the fest, his new book The Winnowing Draw, and Kôji Shiraishi's shot-on-video one-take horror film A Record of Sweet Murder.
