PS Cast: God and Fear

Posted in PSCast:S2 by Ziggy Sunday July 13, 2014 at 17:49

A bit more religious than normal, this is mostly about Christians. It’s also a bit more confused than normal. I think I started talking before I had really thought this through. There’s some stuff in there addressed at non-Christians as well… and some stuff about machines.

Anyway, Proceed at your own risk while listening to God and Fear.

[Musical Intro]

Hey there gentlemen, ladies, and children of all kinds? Ages? How does it go?

I don’t know how it goes. (more…)

PS Cast: Work Ethic

Posted in Music,PSCast:S2 by Ziggy Friday July 4, 2014 at 19:57

Today I talk about Japan’s Work Ethic compared to the one in the US.

[Terrible Musical Intro]

Welcome to a rainy day Paul Spooner Podcast.

So I was thinking about the way that people have… [musical intro continues] Hmm, I may have to continue this another time.

So I’ve been considering how people in Japan have a different attitude toward work than people in America. (When I say “America” I mean the United States of America, but it’s easier to just say “America”, maybe I should just say “The US”) They have a different attitude toward work… not necessarily a better one, and I think that it’s easy to be like “Ohh, the Japanese have a BETTER attitude!” It’s better in ways, but it’s also worse in ways.

PS Cast: Filler & Funny Voices

Posted in PSCast:S2 by Ziggy Wednesday July 2, 2014 at 22:43

This week I talk in some funny voices, and say “um” a lot. (Editor’s note: There are a few blatant lies in this episode, see if you can spot them.) Filler and Funny Voices

Transcript below:

That’s right folks it’s the Paul Spooner Podcast!

So! Funny voices! What’s with that? (more…)

PS Cast, Childrearing

Posted in Articles,Children,Music,PSCast:S1 by Ziggy Thursday June 26, 2014 at 02:43

A few short thoughts about… Hah! Nope. Couldn’t do it.

A huge jumbled ramble (Nearly fourty minutes worth) about training children.

Childrearing

[Strangely Baseline Intro, ends at 3:10]

Welcome back to the Paul Spooner Podcast!

Today I want to talk about something a little more personal. Children! Specifically, my children. (more…)

PS Cast, Ocean Living

Posted in Articles,PSCast:S1 by Ziggy Wednesday June 25, 2014 at 15:09

Living on the ocean. Why we don’t do it, and why we might want to start.

Ocean Living

[Same Old Intro]

So, for a while I’ve been thinking about how we live on the land, but the ocean is practically empty. So why don’t we just live there?

And obviously there’s some reasons for this. (more…)

The PS Cast, Asynchronous Communication

Posted in Music,PSCast:S1 by Ziggy Wednesday June 25, 2014 at 01:03

A couple topics, about communication of all things!

Asynchronous Communication

[Same old musical intro]

I find it interesting how some people (and I don’t know if this is just “some people” or “almost all people except for me”) put things on the internet that they are intending only for their own private use. Like, someone will start a blog, and use it just to write things that they intend to keep to themselves. (more…)

The PS cast, Learning and Language

Posted in Articles,Music,PSCast:S1 by Ziggy Tuesday June 24, 2014 at 07:21

This episode is devoted to religion, philosophy, the meaning of life, the purpose of pain, and how you probably shouldn’t be listening to me ramble so much. Learning and Sloppy Language

Transcript below:

[Marginally Musical Intro]

I sometimes feel I’m protected from bad things. Or maybe I’ve just accepted things that other people think are bad? So I don’t need to experience them? This is getting really, meta, out there kind of, uh, philosophical religious, but… well here it goes! (more…)

The PS cast, Nested Feelings

Posted in Articles,Music,Podcasts,PSCast:S1 by Ziggy Sunday June 22, 2014 at 18:58

Wherin I talk about my feelings.

Nested Feelings specifically.

Transcript below:

[Marginally Musical Intro]

Do you ever get that feeling of an overhanging mass? Kind of like being underneath something? But it’s not claustrophobia. A combination of claustrophobia and acrophobia I guess. But it’s not necessarily fear! It’s more a thrill, an anticipation, a kind of joy! It’s this… (more…)

PS Podcast, Populace and Wealth

Posted in Articles,Music,Podcasts,PSCast:S0 by Ziggy Monday June 2, 2014 at 23:29

This is even more of a ramble than usual…

Populace and Wealth

Transcript below:

[Marginally Musical Intro]

That’s right folks, it’s the Paul Spooner Podcast!

The other day I was thinking about how different countries base their laws off of the “standard” population and not necessarily off of the whole population. For example, we pride ourselves in America (In A Marrrca!) we pride ourselves of being inclusive of minorities. We include minorities in the political process, we want to make everyone feel included…

But that’s not really true! We DO have to make our laws to serve someone, and generally those laws are made to serve the majority. (more…)
