DnB Ep 153: SXSW 2018 and a World without Oil?!

In this episode of the Dudes n Beer podcast host Christopher Jordan is joined in studio by Julie Connally and special guest Richard Adams of Breach.tv and Breach.fm to discuss the ever-changing face of South by South West. From the humble beginnings as a simple music festival in the 90’s to what is now a month long invasion of the city of Austin of everything that is big tech, big music and corporate America, has the festival maintained its roots or has the dream of art and music for all been overshadowed by the hype of a fast buck? What does it mean when people go out of their way to play non-authorized SXSW shows and even anti-SXSW shows? How do we maintain a focus on local impact when events that give musicians free experiences are replaced with things like big pharma booths and corporate stages that don’t pay musicians? What was meant by the statement made by SXSW keynote speaker Arnold Schwarzenegger when he said that he “wants to put big oil on trial for first degree murder and put them out of business”? Are we to take such statements as a real call to action? Can you really sue a corporation for first degree murder? Could we today actually live in a society without the use of oil or petroleum based products? These questions and more in this episode of the Dudes n Beer podcast.
