S01E08 - [Part 2] The One About Writing

Part 2! We recorded a podcast focused on writing advice and tips, and it ended up being very long, so we've split it into two files. Probably worth listening to Part 1 first!

S01E08 - [Part 1] The One About Writing

S01E07 - AI, Multi-planetary Humans, Rites of Passage, and Political Divides.

Back in the saddle - we discussed The Future - with capital letters. Big talk stuff. Then, Robbie asked "Is 18 too young to vote?", and we went down a whole different rabbithole. Interesting chats though. Note: Episode 6 is currently lost... It may be coming next, out of order.

S01E05 - War and Peace and Life and Death

S01E04 - Nostalgia, Existentialism, BFR Launches, and Obese Horses.

We attempted to theme Ep4 around religion and philosophy, but ended up talking about: Obesity in horses, Nostalgia and Melancholy, Hoarding and Collecting, Preserving family history and stories, Existentialism and its various forms, Robbie get's dark about death and dying, Then we lighten things up again with Elon Musk choosing the coolest possible payload for the first BFR launch. We both felt like it was an interesting chat though, so we hope you enjoy it! There was mention of an interview with Dr James Collett, find that in full HERE.

S01E04 - Nostalgia, Existentialism, BFR Launches, and Obese Horses.

S01E03 - Superstition, Sentimentality, and Larry David.

In an attempt to talk on the relationship between superstition and sentimentality, we ended up discussing: The merits of Assassins Creed, How World War 1 unfolded, Was Larry David's holocaust joke in poor taste?, Australia's economy and real estate market, And Vikings - again. We even managed to almost link some of those topics to the episode's "Theme". Recorded November 12th, 2017 at Up & Up Media Headquarters, Mooroolbark, Victoria, Australia. www.upandupmedia.com.au

S01E02 - The function of stories & myths.

We went deep on this one, talking about the function of storytelling in anthropological development. Some highlights include: Robbie's analysis of To Kill a Mockingbird, his retelling of the rise and fall of the Vikings, a discussion around how to navigate an existential transformation, and of course, lots of writing-advice tidbits.
