Start the (Unicorn) Riot w/ Dan Feidt
On this edition of Parallax Views, the decentralized, non-profit media collective Unicorn Riot has gained notoriety in the past few year for its databases and exposés of leaks pertaining to the inner world and workings of the American far-right or alt right. This, however, is only a small part of the work done by Unicorn Riot, whose motto is "Your Alternative Media". Recently, for example, Unicorn Riot has been publishing investigations related to scandalous, seedy world of offshore banking. Specifically, Unicorn Riot, alongside Distributed Denial of Secrets, has been shedding light on the data hacks of The Cayman National Bank and, shortly after the recording of this episode, the London finance firm Formations House.
On this edition of the program, Dan Feidt, a co-founder of Unicorn Riot, joins us to discuss the collective's work, mission, its decentralized nature. In addition Dan fills us in on his reporting in regards to the shadowy world of offshore banking, specifically the recent Cayman National Bank data hack leaks. Dan and I also chat about conspiracy theories and offer a critique of right-wing conspiracy theories like QAnon and figures like Alex Jones of Infowars. And yes, we do discuss Unicorn Riot's work pertaining to the leaks they've published and databased pertaining to the inner world and workings of the alt right. All that and more on this edition of Parallax Views.
