Finally managed to record another episode of the podcast. Enjoy!

The Private Citizen 113: Lex Draconis

In Germany, telling someone on the internet that you will hurt and injure them if they visit you at home is apparently a valid defence for actually hitting them now.

I’m pretty behind on my podcast The Private Citizen. I’ve actually missed two releases now. This is mostly due to a trip to Hanover for work-related reasons in the last week of March and many work commitments I could not postpone coming down to deadlines in the previous week. On top of that, I have to admit, I also used the dropping of almost all of the SARS-CoV-2-related restrictions to finally spend some time with friends and at parties and such. I promise I will give my best to start catching up in the coming week. I do have some work commitments, but it should be more manageable. I already have a lot of interesting topics lined up for the show and can’t wait to record some episodes!

The current episode of my podcast The Private Citizen looks at Russia’s war goal in Ukraine.

The Private Citizen 112: What Does Putin Want?

What are Putin’s war goals in Ukraine? What is the Russian military trying to achieve? And how is it going?

It’s pretty hard to find reliable information on the war in Ukraine that’s not based solely on the propaganda of one of the parties involved. It’s even harder to find a map of the current situation on the ground that’s clearly laid out. Because of this, I’ve done my best to produce such a map, based on the most reliable third party information I could cobble together.

NATO Expansion and Putin’s War in Ukraine

The Russian attack on Ukraine is a direct response to NATO’s post-Cold War strategy of undoing the Russian sphere of influence in Eastern Europe.

Last week’s episode of The Private Citizen deals with Facebook finally showing its true colours when it comes to fighting hate speech.

The Private Citizen 111: Peak Hypocrisy

Facebook just made a mockery of the fight against hate speech by admitting that it’s okay if you call for the murder of people the political mainstream doesn’t like. It’s only hate speech if you want to murder the wrong people. What the actual fuck.

Some Thoughts on Elden Ring

What it feels like to play this game if you’ve never even touched a From Software game before.
Read more →

Lots of people seem excited about me announcing to play Elden Ring, now that my PC can run it. I have never played a Souls-type game before, know nothing about the game and generally hate hard video games. So it should be an absolute disaster.

If you want to tune in, I’m planning to start playing at around 18:00 CET today on Twitch. See you in chat?
