The Expatriate Interviews, Part I: English Teacher Heather Keagan

In this episode I had a delightful and wide-ranging discussion with Canadian expat Heather Keagan. She teaches English as a foreign language to people of all ages here in Budapest. She's also passionate about mental health and has a great sense of humor. We get into everything from how Budapest has changed over the years, to the strange toilets we have here. We also talk at length about teaching English as a native speaker in foreign countries, which is likely useful for folks who are thinking about getting into TEFL as a profession. We end with some talk about what living in Budapest is like, what we like, what we don't like, and some of the unique things about life here. This is the first interview in what I hope to be regular series where I have open-ended discussions with expats from all over the world. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/burntoutinbudapest/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/burntoutinbudapest/support

A Brief Check-In

Discussing "Planet of the Humans" w/ Special Guest Dr. Sean Parson

In this episode, I discuss the controversial new documentary film Planet of the Humans, directed by Jeff Gibbs and Executive Produced by Michael Moore. My special guest for the whole hour + is Dr. Sean Parson, Associate Professor in the departments of Political Science and International Relations and Sustainable Cultures at Northern Arizona University. We dig into some of the very obvious weaknesses of the film, like it's lack of a global approach to the problem of sustainable energy and population growth and distribution; the over-reliance on old white people to comment on the supposed "over-population" problem; and its total lack of attention to the existing movements that challenge many of the very real problems the movie highlights. Importantly, we don't leave it there. We use the film to have a holistic discussion about the myriad problems that exist in the "sustainable energy" narrative that the film's director, Jeff Gibbs, has said publicly is the main goal. There is much abo...

Discussing "Planet of the Humans" w/ Special Guest Dr. Sean Parson

A Discussion with Adam Klugman, Part II

EThis episode is Part II of my long-form interview with Adam Klugman, whom you might know from his now legendary monologues on his old radio show Mad As Hell in America, which used to run on the Air America radio network. For those who did not listen to the first part of the interview, it is worth knowing that Adam is the son of the famous actor Jack Klugman (Angry Old Men, Quincy, and The Odd Couple). Born on the 50-yard line of the game of Hollywood, Adam grew up in no ordinary way, but instead of following in his father's footsteps, he got into commercial ad-making. Eventually he found himself deeply invested in using his skills of messaging and video editing as a hopeful change-maker on the Democratic side of the Isle. In the interview we discuss how we met, which is through my participation in the planning of the Stop the Machine! Create a New World! protest and occupation of Freedom Plaza in Washington, DC in 2011, just as the Occupy Movement was reaching its apex. The band I played in and co-led for many years, Junkyard Empire, performed at that rally, as well as many other rallies like it across the country, and eventually that was how Adam and I got to know each other. He was a fan of the band, and I was a huge fan of his work on Air America Radio. We get into a lot of material here, and I hope it moves some of you to make comments and to subscribe to the podcast. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/burntoutinbudapest/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/burntoutinbudapest/support

A Discussion with Adam Klugman, Part II

Special Guest Adam Klugman - Part I

EIn this episode, the first of a 2-part interview with Adam Klugman, we get an introduction to his life, one that is far from ordinary! This is the lighter half of the interview, where we talk about growing up as the son of the famous Jack Klugman, who you might know from the American sitcom of the 1970s called The Odd Couple, arguably one of the greatest shows ever on television. You may also know Adam from his now legendary monologues on his old radio show Mad As Hell in America. A regular aspect of the podcast is the sharing of stories, which I think is of great importance! As I will with all my guests, I ask him to "tell us a story." His story is a wild one. I don't want to give it away, but it involved the great Frank Sinatra. We also hear about his interesting social transformation from bratty Hollywood kid to passionate seeker of change, and his later transition from the world of commercial ad-making to political campaign messaging. In the second episode of the interview we di...

EThis week, my guest is the great Adam Klugman. He's a media strategist, radio personality, script writer and director, and all-around interesting guy.

On Farmer's Markets, Part I

EOn this short episode, I ponder the question "who get's to shop at farmer's markets?" The goal is to get a conversation going about the reality that farmer's markets in the US - particularly within large metropolitan cities - have become a kind of luxury, as opposed to a daily necessity. Many questions develop from thinking about farmer's markets in this way. On future episodes I will return to this subject and hopefully have some special guests on the matter. Consider this an introduction to the show and to one of the subjects I like to harp on. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/burntoutinbudapest/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/burntoutinbudapest/support
