018 — Died Suddenly [PAB]

Open in playerListen on);
Full Stack Banana est un nouveau podcast de conversations nourrissantes au carrefour de la philosophie et de la culture contemporaine. Au fil de réflexions parfois existentialistes mais absolument relax, on s’efforce de bâtir un modèle d’échafaudage pour la vie moderne.
Episode details

Cette semaine on se demande ce qu’est exactement “#diedsuddenly”, qu’on voit régulièrement sur Twitter. On parle aussi des Russes qui disparaissent dans des circonstances mystérieuses et improbables et des urgences qui débordent en Angleterre. Aussi: les annonceurs reviennent chez Twitter et de la surveillance extra-territoriale Chinoise. Enfin, on a enfin de la clarté sur les dates d’expirations des aliments, on parle des entrevues d’emploi qui en finissent plus et on parle, encore une fois, d’Alec Baldwin. Conclusion: vaut mieux ne pas parler avec la police.

[30:00] Sudden Russian Death Syndrome

Here is a list of people you should not currently want to be: a Russian sausage tycoon, a Russian gas-industry executive, the editor in chief of a Russian tabloid, a Russian shipyard director, the head of a Russian ski resort, a Russian aviation official, or a Russian rail magnate.

[39:00] Santé: Britain’s Cautionary Tale of Self-Destruction

In December, as many as 500 patients per week were dying in Britain because of E.R. waits, according to the Royal College of Emergency Medicine, a figure rivaling (and perhaps surpassing) the death toll from Covid-19. On average, English ambulances were taking an hour and a half to respond to stroke and heart-attack calls, compared with a target time of 18 minutes; nationwide, 10 times as many patients spent more than four hours waiting in emergency rooms as did in 2011. The waiting list for scheduled treatments recently passed seven million — more than 10 percent of the country — prompting nurses to strike. The National Health Service has been in crisis for years, but over the holidays, as wait times spiked, the crisis moved to the very center of a narrative of national decline.
