Great lecture from EIGHT YEARS AGO on how we think of 'knowledge' and how Social Media et. al. makes us realize the flaws in our collective concepts.

The odd one or two, but most no.

Well they are substantial listens. 

I didn't expect more than one or two - so I'll keep posting them in case anyone finds them worthwhile.

I generally don't listen to podcasts. When I'm working, they're a distraction and when I'm not working, I would rather drink myself into a coma and watch mindless entertainment.

Cyber - don't drink too much.  It's not healthy.

There's such a thing as 'dead time' when you want to listen to something while doing low-engagement tasks, like sitting on a streetcar (or whatever Windsor has) or in a car, or doing the dishes.

I offer these to you as an option for your benefit only - these podcasts have enhanced my life greatly.

I appreciate that you post them even if I haven't gotten around to listening to them. I should make the time to check them out.

Also, I live in New Brunswick now. lol

Oh and I don't drink too much. I drink just enough.

I kid...I've been exploring the world of whisk(e)y lately. I'm starting to develop the nose and palate for the nuances they have, which is pretty exciting. I like to appreciate a good scotch. I don't generally drink to get blackout drunk.

Ashley Frawley is a new one I'm listening to.  Free thinking, Canadian, First Nations and (I think) a powerhouse.

She looks at the world from the back-end of having gone through too much therapy as a youth.  The self-help, and egotistic west is the root of problems to her.  It makes her left but with talking points that speak to the right as well.  Although she would construct institutions that don't punish people for their flaws, which is left.

Fascinating to me, and the one flaw I can say is that she leaves the listener behind with her quickness and maybe doesn't back up her points enough.

It really gets going in the last 20 minutes...

Let's have a chat about podcasts - the best thing that happened to accompany you cleaning the kitchen since the invention of the wife.

( Read that again, it's NOT sexist  :P)

It leans on stereotypes and subverts expectations. Good nuanced humour. Kudos to you.

I'm not really looking for anything in particular. I've been enjoying Philosophize This and Thinking Allowed (BBC 4). I enjoy a good academic podcast, but not pulp things like TED has become. I dunno. I'm fussy as hell.

Hmmmm....

If you can take hard-left podcasts, 'zero books' Douglas Lain has a bunch of amateurishly produced but super-thinky discussion on politics that leans heavily  on philosophy.  Maybe surprisingly, it's a little anti-woke at times but they have some interesting takes on the politics of the day.

I'll check it out for sure. If it scratches the itch, I'll subscribe.

Edit: Looks like it's not on iTunes but is a YouTube channel, so that's good.
