In this very intimate episode Eric Duffy and Ken Vallario explore the interpersonal as a political space.
In episode 5 we discuss the Italian film We Have a Pope and the concept of religious tolerance. As with all our episodes, we are reaching for the outer edges of these concepts, so some might find our treatment of religion offensive. King’s corner is not featured this week, but we have a special call-in from Downward Spiral co-host Geoff Feder…the holy war continues…you can now find this podcast on iTunes.
In our fourth episode we discuss the film The Sound of My Voice, and the issues therein, including cults, the nature of history and rationality. With your usual co-hosts Ken Vallario and Eric Duffy, expect wild tangents, but there will be no spoilers in this episode, but as always Byron King will deliver another excellent piece in his ongoing series of King’s Corner. Enjoy! As always, if you have any feedback we would love to hear from you.
In our third episode we explore the oft neglected fact of the ongoing Holy War, and how our Western habit of neglecting the power of culture is an aspect of this Holy War that only becomes apparent after we’ve been engaged in it. We use the show Homeland (Season 1) as a starting point for this discussion. Co-hosts Ken Vallario and Eric Duffy, with special guest star Byron King take you into the conflicts in history that continue to influence our present political choices. Enjoy! As always, if you have any feedback we would love to hear from you.
In our second episode we explore the themes Sanity and Society in response to our recent viewing of David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook. Co-hosts Ken Vallario and Eric Duffy, with special guest star Byron King. Enjoy! As always, if you have any feedback we would love to hear from you.
