Ep 8: 'Inevitable Massive Success!' - with guest Chris Day
Our latest guest is the entertaining and provocative Chris Day. Besides owning a 2269 invitation, who is Chris Day? Well, in his own words…
“Chris Day is a refreshingly bespectacled illustrator, animator and writer. He has scribbled, doodled and thinkercised since he was a dot and currently runs the small (but perfectly formed) creative studio Little Creature his home in the leafy depths of Bath, Enger-land. One day he hopes to finally learn the saxophone and write a screenplay about a lonely 19th Century inventor. In 2269 he will be 295 years young and at most parties he can be found in the kitchen near the finger food.”

What a pleasurable and refreshing show!
Creative and refreshing concept - stimulating, fun, and diverting questions posed by the host and frequently unexpected responses to those questions on the part of the guests - all-around entertaining and thought-provoking and amounting to time well spent. I recommend subscribing. I predict the conversations started here will only get more and more unusual and lead to your own having increasingly fascinating conversations with friends away from the podcast. I say “give it a listen and see for yourself!’”
The Future Is Bright
With The 2269 Project, we are encouraged to remember that our bright futures are contingent on what we carry forward. This Podcast is a regularly-scheduled, clever, creative and compelling reminder.
Back to the future and lots of fun
Quick witted responses from Daianna to Mike’s fun and very unique questions. The format is not unlike the long time running Desert Island Disc, but this is today’s answer to looking ahead. It is a half an hour with a smile on your face as Daianna comes up with some surprise answers.
