Thriving in Dystopia

Ep:43 Season Six! Unpacking Baggage

March 29, 2021

Bob and Dave discuss some of their strengths as podcasters. They recorded this episode on St. Patrick’s Day, and they discuss the origins of the Whiskey-Milk drink. 


The Crew introduces the new season’s theme: baggage.  They start with the premise that all human’s have baggage.  They want to “unpack the baggage,” in multiple ways this season. 


For episode 1, the brothers keep it concrete and dystopia and discuss packing a go-bag.  This is rooted in the plot of Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower in which the heroes become refugees and have to leave their home with a packed bag.  Bob created a go-bag last summer during the California fire season, so the Crew discusses what’s in that bag.  


Gut Check

A double-digit seed team (10 or below) will win the men’s NCAA tournament this year. (Dave gives it a 3.  Bob gives it a 2).
