In this shorter episode we discuss silence, the idea of fasting from information intake, and the negative consequences that can arise from consuming too much audio (and/or video) content and the compounding factor of listening at accelerated speeds (1.5x or faster). We also talked about the one year anniversary of Saint Tiny Princess entering into eternity — and that she’s now also a big sister (which is a big reason for the delay in recording and publishing this episode)! And lastly, we briefly discussed with a bit of glee that Disney is going to lose a LOT of money on the final installment of the Skywalker saga — the Ruse of Soy-woker — and that Star Wars long ago stopped making sense from a logical storytelling perspective.
Music with this episode is from the album Christus Natus Est which can be purchased here.
