Latest Episodes

Universal Listening 16 - I Build, I Serve, I Am

This week, we explore the individual, collective, and communal aspects of consciousness. We begin with a (mostly coherent) discussion on sensation, perception, and what makes conscious beings conscious. Then, we explore existentialism, existential therapy, and Carl Jung’s theory of a collective well of unconscious experiences shared among a species. During the second half of the episode, we move into a social exploration of community knowledge, how consciousness and change emerges from communities, and how the process of change is affected by crime, outside influences determining a community’s needs, and policing.NPR - Are Dogs Self-Conscious?Animal consciousnessAnnaka Harris - ConsciousExistential therapyThe fourth wallCarl Jung’s collective unconsciousDudley Street Neighborhood InitiativeDudley Neighbors, Inc.Seattle crime mapBoston crime mapOrville Peck - Dead of NightLizzo - Truth HurtsOrville Peck - Turn to HateMusic credits: Joe Arroyo.

Universal Listening 14 - What Would You Do?

Professional ethics, zombie ethics, and everything in between. We start with a discussion on the cultural foundations of psychotherapy, how they inform social work education, and the benefits of breaking out of the mold. Laz gets invited to a wedding, and Aaron lives… in the area. From there, we touch on dependency, apocalyptic morality, and building a genuine connection with clients. We also pay homage to the groundbreaking work of television host and moral mastermind John Quiñones.Black SummerWhat Would You Do?The Joe Rogan Experience - Dr. PhilChucklefish Games - WargrooveChildish Gambino - Summertime MagicMusic credits: Joe Arroyo.
