29–Maple Syrup’ed LED Misunderstandings and the Rise of German Fascism  

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome folks to another Dazzling episode of Nooks and Crannies! Albeit a slightly more downcast endeavor (0:24)

(3:08) To keep this promise Evan informs Matt of the reemergence of German-Style Fascism in the recent regional elections in Thuringia. We spin this into a discussion of societal apathy, the rise of polemic populists, how off-base Francis Fukuyama was and the ways xenophobia is used to deepen existing divides. Fun!

(17:52): Pull up an arm chair, stoke that fire and adopt a pretentious expression…it’s time for another Canadian Heritage Minute with Evan and Matty! This week we have Jacques Cartier Misnaming Canada and the “Discovery” of Maple Syrup by apparently a bunch of starving settler colonialists, or something. And here is a link to that random story Matt stumbled upon about the Oklahoma Farmers turned away by the Canadian government in the mid 1800’s (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9h51JxiC6U  )   

(24:41) Hey is that an prematurely Old Man on a tin roof shouting at the moon?!? Nah, its just old man Matty with his surprisingly well researched rant on the increasing prevalence of LED headlights and the dangers they pose to old folks like himself. Here are the sources for my irrational anger:

(41:18): And to put a cap on this one, Matty in rather graphic detail, describes to Evan the nature and dimensionality of his long standing (pun absolutely intended) Knee injury, the physio he just got, for some reason Matt ties in mind-body dialectical phenomenology, all in a sad attempt to segue into an update on the Chronicity series *halfway done the transcriptions, like 30% done on the whole series.

Be well, check you on the flip side, aren’t you lucky?!

**If you read this far, congrats..as a special reward you are the first to know that we have another minisode upcoming! It will be about the algorithmic manipulation of our children through YouTube Videos based on the amazing essay written ….
