Thriving in Dystopia

Ep36: Finding the Courage to Confront

February 4, 2021

Some Thriving chatter turned up to 11 to start the show.  The Crew plots out a new NBA team for Dave to follow this year: some interesting social justice questions arise and the conversation eventually connects to Randall Cunningham of all places!  The brothers then honor their mom on Helen Majzler Day!  And discuss the meaning of that day, Jan. 23. 


The topic of the show is confrontation of avoidance. Particularly, they discuss the specifics and logistics of making such confrontations.  Dave tells a powerful story about finding collective courage in his 4th grade classroom: “I’ve never been as proud of a student as in that moment.”  So good, that Dave broke his dairy-free diet at the end of the story.


The story reminds Bob of a story in his own classroom last fall.  And after the story telling, some take-homes are harvested

Watchmen (2019) - Politically strong and prescient education of Tulsa 1921, the show also outshine the very amazing graphic novel upon which it is based.
