Two questions: how would you describe yourself to a stranger; what excites you most about the next 7 years.

"If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things." - René Descartes

    Incident 005 with Nick Bennett

    Incident 005 with Nick Bennett

    Nick Bennett’s visionary time capsule (or timeless capsule, if you will) from April 2016.

    Simply impossible to edit this interview down to 30 mins so it’s a long one. Need a whole new episode for parenting wisdom and toilet door adventures (don’t ask) cut from this recording.

    Nick Bennet is a bipedal land-mammal with opposable thumbs and the power of reason. A mischievous creative with Geordie roots.

    We talk about: re-thinking social norms; where potatoes come from; pacifist altercations; pub time; the baggage around creativity; the death of the graphical user interface, evolutionary barriers and the emergence of collective consciousness.

    There are delightful segues, fair interjections and the occasional monologue.

    Incident 002 with Karl Webster

    Incident 002 with Karl Webster

    Featuring Karl Webster. He’s had problems with self-loathing, a self-confessed failed human being, but also potentially perfect. He’s a writer, a drifter. Sometimes his relationships have gone awry. He’s excited about living in the moment, getting rid of money and loving everyone.

    Incident 001 with Gareth Fryer

    Incident 001 with Gareth Fryer

    Featuring Gareth Fryer. He's a partly ginger, obnoxious, only child that listens to everything. He is not a zombie. He might be a swan. He's excited about getting married, perpetual change and fearless and belligerent youth f*****g things up. He's not angry, he's disappointed.
