Release dates for PEL episodes refer to the release of the first half of the conversation. If you're a PEL Citizen, you'll get the whole thing on that date; if not, you'll have to wait another week for the second half.
The Next PEL Episodes
- Ep. 182 Year In Review. This will be a one-parter. We're still deliberating whether it will be on the public feed or just for PEL Citizens/Patreon supporters.
- Ep. 183 "On Liberty" by John Stewart Mill. A foundational text for modern liberalism. This book rocks. You should read it.
- Ep. 184 Pensees by Blaise Pascal. Unquestionably a genius, and a keen observer of human nature, but Christ! We read Christian apologetics so that you don't have to, though go ahead if you dare.
- Ep. 185 The Odyssey by Homer, with guest Emily Wilson, whose new translation we'll be reading. We'll discuss both the philosophical content of the book and philosophical issues involved in the act of translation.
The Next Nakedly Examined Music Episodes (What is this?)
I'm only listing episodes here that have already been recorded.
- NEM #65 Jherek Bischoff. At this point he mainly writes for strings, sometimes featuring guest vocalists like David Byrne and Craig Wedren.
- NEM #66 Prateek Kuhad. This pop-folk singer/songwriter was MTV India's Artist of the Year for 2016.
- NEM #67 Arrica Rose. Retro-tinged California folk-pop. Dreamy vocals and shimmering soundscapes.
- NEM #68 Marc Jackson and Jeffrey Casey from R.H.E.M.A.. The two remaining members of a band known in the 80s for their role in a weird movie have released their first proper collective album of modern electronica.
The next Phi Fic episodes (What is this?)
- Lord Jim by Joseph Conrad. A passenger ship at risk of sinking is abandoned by the crew, including the seaman, Jim. Jim's decision haunts him and determines his actions for the rest of his life. Join us as we dissect this heart-wrenching decision: faced with the daunting choice to save yourself or those under your care and watch, would you deny your instinct for self-preservation, or not? Honestly.
- Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf. Join us as we discuss one of Woolf's most famous novels. Following one day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway in post-WWI London, as she prepares for her high-society party, the novel plays with time as it slides inside the minds of Clarissa and her friends. Many scholars believe it is this novel where Woolf found her voice.
