We’re all over the place on this episode. It’s just like old times. It’s like a time loop! You could say we wander to and far, but only if you’re a person who uses strange, nonstandard phrases instead of standard ones.

I was way on in my reckoning of episodes. I really thought we were in the mid-40s, but no. We’re just barely over the hill as a podcast. Still, episode 50 is in sight and that’s loaded with significance thanks to our base 10 numbering system and nothing else.

The Workshop #38 – Talking around politics

We don’t like to discuss politics straightforwardly on this show, but in today’s episode we touched on a bunch of stuff that borders on political. Well, everything’s political, really. Sorry.

Nevertheless we hope you put up with (and maybe even get something out of) our discussions on The Vietnam War (both the actual event and the Ken Burns documentary), James Gunn’s firing, and how the cultural discourse has gotten so uncivil.

We usually don’t talk “current events” all that much. This episode was recorded a couple weeks ago so things around the James Gunn situation have developed a bit, but hopefully our discussion is still mostly valid.

Stick around to the end of the show to hear us definitely answer the question on everybody’s minds: when did Facebook stop being cool?

We’re back after our unintentional hiatus! Did you miss us? We’ll alleviate that feeling! Listen and you’ll be sick of us soon enough!

Join us to hear some of what we’ve been doing with our summers, a strange, unexpected diversion on the topic of musicals, and new, exciting ways you can contact our show and give us better things to talk about in the future!

We’ve added a Twitter feed and an email address (see the links above). You can contact our show and tell us what you’d like to hear. Or we’ll assume that nobody listens and just keep doing whatever we want. That’s cool too.
