A Ghost in the Machine features hot takes on modern life from Daniel D, a regular human in a world gone mad. Daniel is nerdy and philosophical like Woody Allen, loud and angry like Sam Kinison, and full of shit like a clogged gas station toilet. It's all part of Life's rich pageant!

Greetings and salutations, fellow old-timers! In this episode, Daniel D discusses current events with two of his kids, one in middle school and the other in high school (both of them are at the tail-end of the age-range for Gen Z) to get a sense for how the rising generation feels about controversial cultural issues. There are some surprises (like which 80s bands are still popular among high schoolers and which ones aren’t), but spoiler alert: Cultural Marxism (a.k.a., Conformmunism) is NOT cool!
