TBD With LDT, Ep. 7 — “Narrative”

 

RELEASE DATE: January 22, 2018

In which I walk in from Day 1 of spring semester of grad school and record an episode. Discussion of narrative as the primary way that humans learn….and a special surprise guest!

Finished rehearsal at 11pm, got home at 11:15pm, and just barely uploaded this before 11:59pm! This was SUCH an off-the-cuff episode that there is not one, but TWO special guests! My cat makes a couple of sound appearances…and then got home from work, so I made him join me in this discussion on narrative, storytelling, and truth. Enjoy!

TBD With LDT, Ep. 6 — “Weird Childhood Stuff & Dreams”

RELEASE DATE: January 15, 2018

I’ve been playing Skyrim (PS4 Special Edition) lately, which has resulted in odd dreams and me reminiscing about some dreams I had when I was a kid…followed by some memories of truly bizarre childhood LDT behavior. Ah, neuroses.

TBD With LDT, Ep. 5 — “Email, Memory, Transitions”

RELEASE DATE: January 8, 2018

Last night I logged into an ancient email account and was ambushed by memory lane…so today I’m talking about the tricky nature of memory, what it’s like to revisit old emails (tangent: why doesn’t every BA/BFA/BS program have mandatory classes in “Email Writing For Your Field?”), and transitional periods of life (and their anniversaries).

TBD With LDT, Ep.3 – “Representation/Narrative, Part 1”

 

 

RELEASE DATE: Decenber 18, 2017

Episode Three of TBD With LDT is about representation and narrative…and it’s the first of a series on representation/narrative.

I hope to hear from some of you who would like to be guests in the Representation/Narrative series on TBD With LDT.

I’ll leave you with a quote from the last few minutes of this episode:

“When you’re missing from the story, people don’t have to worry about you.  They don’t have to think about you as a human being, they don’t have to think about legislation that benefits you, they don’t have to think about going out of their way to help you on the street, they don’t have to think about your troubles and your own human issues and the fact that you, like them, have feelings, right?

If you are missing from the story, then nobody has to give a shit about you.  But if you are in the story, then people cannot ignore you.”
