When I was in second grade, I had a lunchbox with Bert and Ernie on it. On the lunchbox, Bert was carrying a lunchbox, with Bert and Ernie on it. On that lunchbox, Bert was carrying a lunchbox...and I wondered: how far do the lunchboxes go? Am I in a lunchbox too??

You're opening the Infinite Lunchbox for a *fresh take* on what's going on. I'm Stephanie Lepp — socially-engaged artist, producer, and your monochromatic host.

    How to imagine our better angels

    How to imagine our better angels

    NEW INC invited me to give an artist talk about Deep Reckonings, moderated by the illustrious Kat Cizek. In it, I do something I've never done before: guide people in writing Deep Reckonings scripts! In other words, guide people in imagining our better angels. In this case, the better angel of Jeff Bezos.

    Steel Man: From Call-Out To Call-In

    Steel Man: From Call-Out To Call-In

    Call-out culture is all about straw manning: representing the weakest version of someone's position (or the weakest version of something they tweeted a decade ago). So call-IN culture would be all about STEEL manning: representing the strongest version of someone's position. But what would that actually look like in practice?

    This is a teaser for a NEW INC talk I'm giving *this* Friday 4/16 from 11am-12:15 PT / 2-3:15pm ET. Join me to build some steel versions of our straw men: http://bit.ly/steelsteph

    Post-Pandemic Education

    Post-Pandemic Education

    An NYT headline this week reads: "Online Schools Are Here to Stay, Even After the Pandemic." The article does the predictable tug-of-war between online and in-person learning, and arrives at the obvious conclusion that online learning works better for some students than others. Perhaps that conclusion is the place to start? And if we STARTED there, where would we END up?

    How about a new game, Bezos?

    How about a new game, Bezos?

    Amazon workers in Alabama are trying to unionize. And influential people are trying to convince Jeff Bezos to support the campaign: Bernie, Danny Glover, even THE PRESIDENT. But what might actually move Bezos to support unionization, and more broadly, *change the game*?

    Influencers, Greek Gods, and LeBron James

    Influencers, Greek Gods, and LeBron James

    How are religious myths metaphorically true? What if influencers are our modern-day Greek Gods? In which case, perhaps the issue is less the fact that there are influencers, and more *what* they're influencing?

    COVID: Health vs. economy?!

    COVID: Health vs. economy?!

    After a year of living with the pandemic, it's painfully obvious that we can't treat health and economy as either/or. So how to we treat them as both/and? What's the equivalent of sustainable development -- which economic development with sustainability -- for integrating economic development with *health*? And....what could such a phenomenon be CALLED? Put your ideas in the comments below :)
