Deviant SynCast #52: Resist Cynicism, Believe in the Transcendent!

The new show is (finally) up! Sorry for the delay — Diane’s on Spring Break this week, and for some reason I feel extra silly talking into a mic by myself.

(I don’t mind doing the VeteranGamers podcast when she’s around, but I’m very self-conscious when it’s just me and the mic.)

I start out with Kony, because everyone’s talking about it (and more than a few people are asking me about it). I have a lot more to say about it, so I keep it short — but I promise to write a post here about all of it soon. Thank you for your patience!

Please send feedback to esp (at) fbesp.org or leave comments here (or post in the new chatbox). Here are the links for this week:

Kony 2012

Iran and Weapons Inspections

Economics: High-Frequency Trading

Pop Culture, Killer Robots, etc.

Deviant SynCast #51: Drones and Thrones

Episode #51 of the Deviant SynCast is now available for your listening pleasure. I’ve submitted it to iTunes, but apparently it hasn’t been approved yet, so downloading it here is your only option for now.

I went a little long this week — 45 minutes. Many thanks to everyone who sent feedback last week. Please respond with thoughts or questions!

Deviant SynCast Episode #50

That’s right, people! After a hiatus of five years, my podcast is back on the air. Unlike in the past, there’s no multimedia or music. This is just me talking for 30 minutes. Fortunately, I’ve got lots of stuff to talk about, from Syria to (Public) Enemy Books and Foxconn and lots of other stuff.

I’m working to get it onto iTunes, but for now just download it manually and stick it on your ‘pod. And send me questions or comments!

Hey, look — Patton Oswalt’s doing a column over at Spin. How odd.
