We interrupt our regularly scheduled learning journey for some weird chatting. Join Adri and Brie on this Let’s Get Weird bonus episode: some good old irregular, barely edited, chatty time! Our Let’s Get Weird episodes let us get wildly, wonky, and weird about what’s on our minds.
This time we’re going on a bit about our experiences during COVID-19 self-isolation: the good, the bad, and the hobbies. We’ve stared at our walls, we’ve taken up gardening, and cooked up some dubious food. Check it out!
From Hannibal to Ted Bundy, we (along with special guest, writer Zoe Broad) try to unpack the obsession with serial killers, and end up instead ruminating on the animal within us all that is capable of murder.
AKA: the episode where we assure you that you are statistically more likely to be eaten by a serial killer than a zombie. Take that as you will.
Given the current state of things, we felt it was a good time to explore humanity's obsession with The End. Doomsday prophecies span across countless religions, and (at times) intersects with science. For millennia, we've been coming up with inventive ways our civilizations and societies might cease to exist. So what is it that drives us to predict (and sometimes prepare for) the end of the world? And is there some kind of comfort in the simplicity of a post-apocalyptic world? And, more importantly, was Jesus a zombie? We set out to answer this, and other questions.
We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you the first in our minisode series 'Let's Get Weird About.' Unedited, unpolished, and just a little bit unprepared. Instead of unlocking other people's obsessions, Adri and Brie spend a little time getting weird about their own. In this episode we try to make sense of our complex feelings about Netflix's 'The Witcher.'
