Thriving in Dystopia

Ep23: Being Together When We Are Apart

October 15, 2020

A lot of chuckles to start the show talking basketball nicknames.  They then discuss what the right response to an ailing fascist is.  This is all before the topic of the day.  The topic of the day is physical/geographical separation.  Dave recounts a sweet story about being scared as a kid and going to Bob’s bed to sleep (and that was comforting but for reasons you might not think).  They discuss the ways that the pandemic robs us of being with our loved ones.  There is a poverty of experience over zoom.  The brothers miss time spent together when no one has to be “on,” and people can just hang out.  The brother, however, did find a way to recreate this through listening to a baseball game together recently.

Hot Seat Question: Are you going to vote? Who will you vote for? (Bob’s response)
