    SoloCast 2.2: "Say Their Names"

    SoloCast Ep. 7: "Meandering Down The Rabbit Hole"

    SoloCast Ep. 7: "Meandering Down The Rabbit Hole"

    In this episode, Spencer meanders down the rabbit hole of conspiracies & conspiracy theories. He lays out his views about the "Military-Industrial-Complex" vs. the "Deep State". Is it a 500+ year old secret cult that holds mystical orgies or is it a modern blending of wealthy individuals & self-interested corporate CEOs who are members of the same country clubs w/ essentially the same political & economic ideologies regardless of the label & title next to their name. Spencer's bet is on the later.

    American Allegories Ep. 4: "What to do when our Village has enough; uuuh... medicinal herbs?"

    American Allegories Ep. 4: "What to do when our Village has enough; uuuh... medicinal herbs?"

    This is Part 2 of the 3rd American Allegories episode, "The Oxymoronic Paradox of Taxes" --- so if need be, that episode is in the archive for refreshing. In this episode, Aldous & Spencer get a little more philosophical & abstract in their approach to economics. They look for deeper underlying issues & ask if there are some better structures that would help more equitably distribute labor's fruits & profits. Where Part 1 may have been heavy on oxymoron, part 2 maybe more paradoxical. What do you think?

    The Have-Nots Ep. 9: "Cream-Pie'ing Nazis"

    The Have-Nots Ep. 9: "Cream-Pie'ing Nazis"

    What happens when Spencer & Darrel disagree about something?
    Find out as they discuss how to deal with the rise of various flavors of racist right-wing groups & individuals. From punching & egging racists to ignoring & isolating them: What works, what does not & what is the threshold for free-speech vs. yelling "Fire-in-a-crowded-theater"?
    Not sure that we stumble on the answer but sadly this discussion seems to be more relevant all the time -- and also doesn't seem to be going anywhere any time soon.

    SoloCast Ep. 6: "Updates, Plans & Hebbian Theory"

    Spencer provides an update on why there haven't been any episodes uploaded lately, lays out the plan for the next "season" of the podcast & gets a little personal about his own struggles with manic-depression. He chats about the Hebbian Theory that neurons-that-fire-together-wire-together & uses his own life to make the argument that mental health is part of health care.
