Ep51: Another Podcast Is Possible

Another Podcast Is Possible

 

New season! The Crew reviews all the Gut Checks from season 6.  Great picks!

 

Dave is done with his school year and will have Peachtree Pizza with his kiddos.  His students did so well with their reading progress!

 

The theme of the new season is “another world is possible.”  Bob thinks that expanding on this simple thought is key to social change (including police abolition).  The brothers first came across this phrase volunteering at Lefthand Books, the one-time socialist bookstore in Boulder.  Bob asks Dave, what does the “world” mean in this question.  Dave expands on the obscene wealth inequality in the world.

 

The episode ends with the Crew wanting to explore why the idealist is so smeared in our society.  Connected with this is their desire to explore utopias and utopian thinking this season.  

 

Quick Fix

You are making pork chops for dinner, and you have the bread crumbs, the flour, but you don’t have eggs.  What do you do?....Mayonnaise!
