    Episode 266: Never Nothing

    Episode 266: Never Nothing

    In a period where so much has slowed down or ground to a halt, previous definitions and metrics feel strange and irrelevant. Beyond the application of our past perspectives, it seems only natural to conclude that where there was once something, so radical a series of losses must leave nothing. Where there once was someone, doing a series of tasks and pursuing a variety of lives, there must now be no one. This is, however tempting the thought, not the truth - which is something far more encouraging.

    Episode 265: A Lonely Grandma's Plea

    Episode 265: A Lonely Grandma's Plea

    How would we each respond to a call for help? Some might say they’d leap to the aid of their fellow person, while others would request more information about the hypothetical. In the era of the internet, given vast distances and anonymity, these circumstances are more complicated than ever before. And over the 2019 holiday season, and elder woman named Carrie from Tulsa, Oklahoma learned precisely how blunt the response can be. Lonely and seeking a family to share the spirit of the season with, her Craigslist ad was primarily met with hostility, suspicion and ridicule. How should we evaluate our social norms and dynamics given the prevalence of vehemence here? What can we learn about the sensitive dynamic between compassion and caution? What might this event indicate about an increasingly digital world?

    Episode 264: The Untitled Tomes of Silence

    Episode 264: The Untitled Tomes of Silence

    Straightforward as it is, human silence (especially between or among others) carries a great deal of meaning. Or, perhaps more precisely, a great many possible meanings. Could those of us that are choosing not to voice or express our sentiments prevent or minimize confusion by explaining our silence? Is it always possible? These have been recent musings of mine.-Kip

    Episode 263: Start Writing

    It’s often said that history is written by the victors. I would at that it is remembered and offered to future readers by those present and observing. And where victorious parties have a necessarily skewed vision, the most powerful and accurate histories will incorporate every possible perspective and story. To that end, I implore you to start writing and allow a history for our successors. Whoever they may be and however they may see us, let’s give them the light to do so.-Kip

    Episode 262: For Non-Gamers — Battle Themes

    Episode 262: For Non-Gamers — Battle Themes

    While music has been consumed since time immemorial, video games are a much less popular medium by comparison. In this entry of an ongoing series meant for non-gamers, we wanted to explore how music is used in video games to great effect. And - in the circumstances of a global pandemic - what insights we might find within the music of video games. How do their soundtracks ward of the monotony of repetitive tasks? How does music help clarify the tone of a given moment or encounter?

Great podcast

I look forward to Kip’s podcast weekly so I thought it would be good to provide a more recent review. A perfect length, thought provoking, great balance of serious v. Light topics, and seems to allow us to deep dive in thought when we want, or simply enjoy a stimulating conversation when that’s what we want. Thank you Kip!
