‘Séance’ with the spirit of Fred Phelps, former head of Westboro Baptist Church
What’s the best part of your job?
The warm inner glow of self-righteousness.
What’s the worst part of your job?
The much warmer searing glow of Satan’s home that now permeates every atom of my being and every moment of my tortured existence, from now until eternity.
Did being a member of a homophobic death cult made life harder for you in any way?
Honestly I’d heard a lot of good things about Orange Is The New Black, but I found I just really had trouble getting into it you know? Oh well, each to their own huh? Well, with some restrictions obviously.

The Spinoff has disabled their comments section, following RNZ closing theirs. This has come after a raft of concerning comments were received in response to articles on homelessness, poetry, and sexual abuse.

Turns out Pokemon Go was probably the first large scale privacy invasion. The app collects a whole butt-load of data about your personal movements, how long you spend where, and who else was there. The app developers, including the Pokemon Company, are more than happy to give this data over to third party service providers for ‘research’ and ‘analysis’. Gotcha!
