Let Me Take You Down the Corridors of My Life: Transmission 463, 2019 May 1

_Diffusion_Is_a_Force.jpgI must admit that I've been looking through my social media timelines for clues as to what was happening at the time these old programs were aired. It's been so long, and we seem to have passed through so many worlds, that I have reached a new order of magnitude of not-remembering, if that even makes sense. (Apologies, I am on my second vodka-and-Pompelmo as I write this.) Anyway, I must not have been doing much on social media at around this time. And it's just as well. Do you remember when Facebook and Twitter were fun? Or am I just hallucinating? At any rate it has been a crazy couple of months, I have been extremely offline, and I have little idea what is going on in the world.

This program is from a different era, and it begins a bit low-key. It gets going eventually, and I admit that I like where it goes. But it sounds foreign to me, for long stretches. How things have changed. This warrants an explanation, and I will try to provide it, by and by. But for now, try to live with the sounds.

But What Does It Matter? Transmission 462, 2019 April 24

Weval_-_The_Weight.jpgSerendipitously, I guess, I am trying to recall this program at the right time. I see that on this day "what we were enduring" was a tedious and stupid political argument about whether the incarcerated should have the right to vote. (They should.) And now, in the sweltering heat of a July that is surely cooler than any we will see in the future, I am compelled to think about "carceral logic," how it affects me, whether I embrace it, etc. It's been a wild ride at "theory camp" this year.

I would say I deserve "congratulations" somewhere on the spectrum of irony for managing to get three months behind in my postings, which is a record. What can I say? Life intrudes. We're trying to buy a house, and I am trying to be good at the things in my life that don't involve radio, for once. And I am also trying to sleep. As always, if you're unhappy with the service around here, we offer full refunds.
