Welcome friends, to a podcast for a darker timeline. Maybe the darkest of all timelines. Definitely not one of the good timelines. Maybe it’s always been a dark timeline, maybe the Hadron collider screwed us over. Science may never know. What we do know is that we live in the void. The void, a place where a chittering mass of void crabs can infest a person suit and win the presidency. The void, a place where we're just clever enough to know that climate change is happening, but not quite clever enough to do anything about it. The void seems terrible and cruel, but it loves you, in its own ironic way.

A Very Voidy Quarantine

From the perspective of a layperson in the philosophy world, I highly recommend this show because it gives me so many delicious new ideas to play with. (I especially liked the episode on Discordianism!) Honestly though, you should listen just for Aaron’s delightfully evil giggles while he tortures his guests with the lightening round questions 😉

Jamesadobe ,

New format is fab!!

Love the new interview format (definitely recommend you speak to Derek-Malone France). Thanks for philosophizing!

The Void Has Engulfed Me...

....and I'm better for it.

I didn't know how to exist in this, the voidiest of timelines, but by embracing the void, I have embraced rejecting the void while being part of the void of which I am separate.
