It's Crazy How Many Things Don't Exist, on Immediatism podcast

By request, Immediatism offers eleven new episodes continuing the theme of the Situationist International. Part of the project here is to make key concepts like "detournement" available to listeners who may be unfamiliar, hence the original texts from the Situationist International Anthology. Another goal was to offer a sample of the response gotten by the SI, and for this purpose (and because it was one of the texts requested by a listener!) Jean-Pierre Voyer's There Is No Society of the Spectacle was chosen from the book It's Crazy How Many Things Don't Exist.
