Join us as we discuss life’s great distractions from an introspective and creative point of view. In each episode we focus on a new and interesting topic and let the conversation flow! We hope that every episode leaves you with, if nothing else, something to ponder!
Where From Here?
Viral disease, pandemic, racism, police brutality, rioting, elections, crazy economy! With all this madness going on we thought it time to sit down and have a chat about where this all might be heading. What difference will all this make in the end? We are also celebrating our two year anniversary! Yay for us! Thank you everyone out there who's still listening! We're looking forward to getting back into it after this long Corona Life break!
Illusions - Freedom
In this addition to our Illusions series we discuss the illusion of freedom.
How free are we really in this country? And how real is freedom as a general concept? We take a session to discuss the reality of freedom and some of the constraining factors of it in our society, culture and country.
From finishing school, getting married and having kids to career changes, retirement and everything in between we go through a lot of life altering transitions throughout our existence. We thought we'd have us a chat about some of the more common ones and a couple not so common ones and discuss how they changed our lives forever. There's a little something for everyone in this episode and who knows, it may even leave you with a new perspective on your current situation!
It seems like every generation in this country has had their own unique fear of some coming apocalypse. Be it nuclear war, EMPs, disease, religious dooms, communists, or zombies, there seems to have never been a shortage of ways to keep us distracted and afraid. We discuss a few of these fear mongering and money making tactics and then, just for fun, talk a bit about what we might do should the end of days actually occur.
Why are some sexual behaviors normal to us and others taught to be horrible or shameful? Why are some accepted in society while others perceived as taboo? We talk about how society defines for us our sexual behaviors and how such definition is and has been different in different places and times. We also talk about a very unique tribe of people that have some extraordinary and shocking practices for teaching the sexual nature of there culture to their offspring.
American Internment Camps
During World War II millions of people all over the world were ripped from their homes and placed by force into internment camps. We usually only hear about the Jewish internment camps in Germany, but actually there were internment camps everywhere including right here in the United States. In this episode we are going to focus on the Japanese-American internment camps that relocated well over 100,000 people of Japanese decent for years during the war. We were very fortunate to meet a couple of wonderful ladies who actually lived through these times and were kind enough to sit down and tell us their story. We really hope you enjoy this piece of American history that most of us were suspiciously not taught about in school. It's an important part of this country's history that ought to be remembered!
I love this show. Smart, funny, what a fun ride.
Good times and great distractions
I really enjoy the podcast. So does my cat, Purrfessor Boots! When Glen laughs Purrfessor Boots will rub and bunt against my smartphone. He is so silly. One time when it was too cold to go outside the Purrfessor was running around the apartment for a while, then stop to look at me for a little, then continue running and running around like a crazy person!
Entertaining and thought provoking
Each topic brings a range of new perspectives to think about. The hosts are intellegent and interesting to listen to and frequently funny which is a bonus.
