Ep. 11 – Lessons from Weckesser

A professor I had as an undergraduate recently passed on. I considered him a sort of indirect mentor on mine. He had quite an impact on me.

This episode is dedicated to John Weckesser (1941-2018).

Ep. 10 – Books On Living An Ordered Life

This past year I read a range of books about organization, minimalism and civilized living. These seemingly disparate volumes come at it from different perspectives, but all explore living a curated, intentional, ordered lifestyle.

Ep. 9 – Thor: Ragnarok and Goethe’s Three Questions of Criticism

I had what I thought would be a good, quick, rather easy idea. I would apply the superhero movie Thor: Ragnarok to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s three questions for subjectively evaluating a piece of art. It turned out not to be so quick nor so easy to put this particular episode together. Special thanks to Judy the librarian on this one.

Ep. 7 – Finding Time For Creative Work

In this episode, I talk about how artists need uninterrupted spans of time to do focused creative work. And I mention what I’m doing nowadays since I don’t have uninterrupted spans of time.
