Pieces of a quizzical and creative young man’s life, during the beginning days of mankind’s extinction (1983-203?).

JudetheAbsurd ,

Astounding.

This podcast is always entertaining and enriching — better, it is sometimes sublime.

Favorite pandemic discovery

Supremely well edited and produced, what stands out above all is the quality of story telling and the host’s endearing humanity in the face of inscrutable and baffling mystery. A truly lovely quest for meaning.
