The brother’s are back in the sound studio after a long Hiatus, and boy did we miss it. It felt good to be home. 

n

This episode is all about grad school and new ideas Dave is learning to implement in his classroom. Bob is a great ear as always and up for a little knowledge. Learn all about ELA, Social Studies, and Math/Science literacy and how we can all implement disciplinary literacy with some great action items and new ideas. 

n

Here is a link to one of Dave’s lessons plans on immigration, but feel free to email for other ideas.

Ep 67: Revolutionary Love Next Steps

The brothers end the season with this episode.  They start by discussing Dave’s journey with Omicron.  Dave reflects on having the bug and some lessons learned.  They follow this with Bob’s reflections on MLK Day and the 2020 doc MLK/FBI.

nn

The heart of the show is wrapping up their season on Valerie Kaur’s revolutionary love.  They only were able to do 1/3 of the love model, but in the last episode, they reflect on the challenges of loving one’s enemy and on loving one’s self.  At the and a shout-out to Tricia Hersey’s work at the Nap Ministry.

nn

The end with some Suberb Owl predications (lol, so old now).  And a promo for Julie’s class on health for teens and tweens and the divine feminine!

Ep66: Boulder Trip 2021: Great Hang-outs and Historic Fires

In the first show of 2022 the Crew starts off by discussing the Omicron Covid Surge.  

nn

 

nn

The main topic for the show was Bob’s trip to Boulder.  Bob summarizes his trip, which had some magical elements to it.  David reflects on the reality that the pandemic has minimized or taken away the ability to hang out.  

nn

 

nn

The brothers share their reflections on experiencing the fires in Boulder.  Part of the experience was affording an even deeper connection to Boulder.  They then refer back to The Ministry of the Future by Kim Stanley Robinson as a helpful book on climate fiction (Cli-fi), and they discuss one of the ideas there of monetizing green energy.

Ep64: Recovering Capitalist Addicts and Cracks in the System: Having and Being Had Book Club Part 2 (side episode)

The book club finishes the discussion on Eula Biss’ book.  The sections for this discussion are “Investment” and “Accounting.”  The discussion touches on what is art? (especially if made by elephants or androids), breaking out of the system while complicit in it, the hard-wiring of investment gambling to our brain chemistry, and digging a hole on your 40th birthday!

Ep63: Still Fighting: Finding Hope in the Fight for a Better World

Dave riffs on the “metaverse” and links it to Neal Stephenson’s dystopia Snow Crash. The brothers discuss whether this can turn out well. Bob brings up his health at the end of a challenging quarter at the Uni.  Dave mentions that Julie is seeing clients and could provide help!

nn

 

nn

The Crew heads to the outer circle of loving the other in Valerie Kaur’s revolutionary love, which is fighting. Fighting is connected to agency and entering the “battlefield.” Bob poses the question, “How do we continue the fight when it seems like we lose so many battles?”  Dave brings up the idea of fighting for a better new world even if it is scarred by capitalism.  This reminds Bob of the idea of finding meaning in the mundane influenced by Viktor Frankl.

nn

 

nn

The brothers end with discussing what “shields and swords” they bring to the fight for making a better world.

Ep62: Revolutionary Grief and the Connections to Stories, Vulnerability, and Space-making

To start off, thinking about coffee has the brothers talking about “old world” vs. “new world” food distinctions.  Dave has found a new youtube channel called the Tierzoo that has inspired an assignment in his class.

nn

 

nn

The topic of the day in Revolutionary Love is grieving.  Bob gives a recap from last week and how wonder might flow into grief, and then they give an intro to grieving based on Valerie’s life and the chapter on grieving from See No Stranger.  Dave relates a story from a recent hike with his mom reflecting on grief/loss that gave him a few insights on grief (including how the awe of the hike allowed for a deeper grieving). 

nn

 

nn

The Crew then reflects on the path of the pandemic to George Floyd’s killing to rebellion/revolution.  Referring back to the episode with Katie G, Bob connects grieving together to the power of stories, telling stories, and the importance of holding space for each other. Dave recognizes that the creation of space is an act of (revolutionary) love and links this to the creation of vulnerability with one another.

Ep 61: Having and Being Had Bookclub (side episode)

In a side episode, the Crew was invited to partake in a bookclub with friends Mike and Dan.  The book is Eula Biss’ Having and Being Had.  The selection of this book came out of conversations about the discomfort with homeownership.  The book, told in 2-3 page chapter vignettes, brings out the contradictory experiences in living in late capitalism.  This discussion aimed at the first 2 sections: consumption and work.

Ep60: New Season! Tracing Revolutionary Love in Our Lives

Nadir masterfully adds harmony to Bob’s enthusiastic but moribund version of Kansas’ Carry On You Wayward Son.  The brothers then discuss Halloween costume ideas (both influenced by different TV shows but landing on similar ideas).

nn

 

nn

They introduce the theme of season 8: the 9 practices of Valerie Kaur’s revolutionary love.  They will discuss each one in turn as it shows up in their lives.  The revolutionary love compass outlines the 3 domains (love for others, opponents, and self) and levels of revolutionary love.  

nn

 

nn

In episode 1, the Crew delves into love for others at the personal level, which is wonder.

nn

 

nn

Wonder is about curiosity and openness, and the brother ask each other about their first memories of being wonderstruck and the most recent experiences of wonder.  They end with some deeper reflections on wonder and love.
