    9/11 & Extremism: Jesse Morton, a dreadlocked American Deadhead, transforms into a radical jihadist and recruiter.

    A Failure of Imagination

    A Failure of Imagination

    9/11 & Fear: In their final report, the 9/11 Commission declared that of all the mistakes the U.S. made prior to the terrorist attacks, the greatest was “a failure of imagination.” Which is why -- in a story that has never been told -- the Department of Defense and the CIA established an ongoing relationship with a secret brain trust of Hollywood’s most famous writers and directors to help prevent the next 9/11.

Masterful

What a deeply compassionate, thoughtful, and intelligent podcast. Dan Taberski is such a talent. Please do yourself a favour and listen to all of his works.

Masterful and beautiful

It feels odd to call a podcast dealing with the aftermath of 9-11 as beautiful, but that is my lingering feeling. The narrative that the podcaster weaves is a compelling reflection on a watershed moment, spun with both honesty and compassion. I am grateful that this kind of distanced analysis is starting to happen. Perhaps through it, we can use the tragedy to make things better and in this way truly honour the victims, including those in the wars waged after 9-11.

Fascinating, creative and entertaining

This is one of the best podcasts I’ve ever listened to. I’ve enjoyed Dan Taberski’s other podcasts, so I knew that he’s talented at finding important cultural discussions buried in seemingly innocuous topics (like Richard Simmons). But what would he do with a subject that is already seen as Culturally Important? Amazingly, after all the other 9/11 coverage, the answer is that he would find a fresh way to look at it. An intellectual dive into the concept of humor and irony in the face of adversity? Check. A nuanced look at American radicals? Yes. Feminist theory and the US military machine? Sure. A linguistic examination of the myriad warnings to Never Forget? That’s here too. Taberski covers a remarkable breadth and depth with ruthless efficiency, yet never feels rushed. Every episode was fascinating, enjoyable, and left me with interesting new things to think and talk about. Hands down one of the best.
