Extraordinary Discourse 100

Here's To The Outsiders (1 of 2)

We have come, along the wandering path of these podcasts, in the darkest time of winter, at a time when the news has also been dark, to the hundredth episode. Somewhere around 10,000 items so far. First day after the Mayan calendar cycle, just under Christmas, the time of family trauma and much loneliness. Let us take a leisurely stroll for a couple of episodes through the land of the Outsiders. Come with me and join the Outsiders!

It didn't work in the composition of this work to drop names with every item. But listen for Margaret Visser, Robert Anton Wilson, David Cayley, Jack Kerouac, John Livingston, Bucky Fuller, Leonard Cohen, Alan Watts, Douglas Rushkoff, Caroline Casey, Derrick de Kerckhove,  John Taylor Gatto, Michael Ignatieff, Noam Chomsky, Marshall McLuhan, Jonathan Winters, Richard Kearney, Ivan Illich, James Hillman, Nils Christie. If I've missed any that concern you, please contact me and I'll see if I have a name.
