My long-time friend (and former drama teacher and boss), Fiona Finley, joins the podcast to explain her love of the arts. She elaborates on her own background in theatre, the value of performance for kids and the importance of liveness.
Friend and fellow podcasting co-host Jason Burk joins the virtual rumination lounge! We discuss hobbies, the ever-changing world of online work and education and the effects of open offices and commuting.
(Thank you to the really loud, enthusiastic cicadas who kindly featured intermittently throughout the episode.)
Quotes by Councillor Harmann (to Neo) in The Matrix Reloaded: ‘Almost no one comes down here, unless, of course, there’s a problem. That’s how it is with people —nobody cares how it works as long as it works. I like it down here. I like to be reminded this city survives because of these machines’; and ‘There is so much in this world that I do not understand. See that machine? It has something to do with recycling our water supply. I have absolutely no idea how it works. But I do understand the reason for it to work.’
My long-time friend Evan joins the podcast to discuss his experience as a pianist and music teacher. He also shares his thoughts on how digital technology has been transforming performance and education.
