Episode 12: Let the Past Die

May 19, 2019

This week, we introduce the Black Hand Society, an organization that terrorized the U.S. in the early 20th century and talk about the development of gangs in America. We also talk about nostalgia and why we feel nostalgic about things and what it means, especially when those things are bad. It's important to tell these stories and we talk about why that is -- and what your story could mean to someone else.

Episode 11: Anarchy and Dreams

Episode 11: Anarchy and Dreams

May 12, 2019

What kind of world can we envision if not this one? Following up on our discussion of the assassination of President McKinley, we talk about what anarchy actually stands for and why it is that people think it is nothing but chaos. We also talk about the work of Natalie Goldberg and Dorothea Brande and what our obsessions and our dreams can do for us, that it's OK to have them, that they're valid, and that they're worth working towards even if they're not something that's going to make us rich.
