Episode 038: Incremental Hope

After a completely unintended hiatus brought on by the super-unfortunate necessity to re-edit this episode, it’s finally here! And it’s a good one, folks. Dr. Mark Webb, now chairman of the Texas Tech philosophy department joins me for his third appearance on the show, alongside Numero Uno Fanboy Jed Cummins and national traveler Kevin Saunders. We discuss charity, education, and the Turkish movement that’s sweeping the world. Also, trolleys. Enjoy!

    Hey hey, BF.

    While tumbling the contents of this ‘cast around the ol’ grey walnut I eventually found myself overly concerned with the Categorical Imperative (derived loosely from the member’s tendency to quote the qu’ran when asked why they’re part of the movement and the whole duty over choice thing therein). Unfortunately Kant is one of those philosophers that really, y’know, he just gets in there and he… ah, he just, y’know, in there and his stuff and oh good god – so from the ensuing shitstorm I actually produced something that bore no relevance to the point in hand. So here’s some meagre points that didn’t get me into trouble.

    * I’m glad these turkish guys are doing what they’re doing. Good on ’em.
    * I’d care more about not caring about my apathy towards the world outside my own except apathy has got my back. The inherent meta- in apathy kinda rocks.

    So great show, guys. Good to hear Dr. Webb again and I hope to he’ll return again soon. Hopefully I’ll be able to offer more of a say on the next episode.

    Thumbs Up For Slurpees.
