Thriving in Dystopia

Ep28: Celebrating in Dystopia, Sharing thanks on Thanksgiving

November 25, 2020

The Crew discusses Covid caution 8 months into the pandemic.  Dave shares some lessons on being in a hybrid classroom for the last 3 months.  Bob finds a new sand dune in Sand City.  The main dish for this episode is thinking about Thanksgiving in the pandemic.  The Crew starts with thoughts on this year, but think more deeply about what this holiday represents and what they want to hold onto in terms of celebration.  Leftovers, stopping consumerism, decolonization, deconstructing violent myths, land acknowledgements, Thanksgiving as opportunity, creative ways to connect, and the Third Annual Dave Majzler Classic softball game are some of the ideas that they discuss.
