The Arrest of Shoshke Engelmayer, The Alter Ego of Artist Ze’ev Engelmayer
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion, we discuss the arrest last week at the Balfour protests of Shoshke Engelmayer, an alter ego of artist Ze’ev Engelmayer, who is a an utterly naked, Outré, bevulva-ed, bare-breasted, lipsticked, bespectacled blond.

All that and songs by the happy, hip-hop collective, Shazamat!
