William Sarradet and Brandon Zech discuss the recent sale of Banksy’s famous shredded artwork, Love is in the Bin, and also discuss how the Vienna Tourist Board is evading censorship by showing the city’s nude artwork on OnlyFans.
“If I were to purchase Love is in the Bin, I would put the batteries back in the shredder, just to see what happens.”
