Society And Culture Podcasts
Essay Questions is the podcast in which your hosts, Joe & Josh, read an essay that's interesting to them and/or of historical importance, and then talk about it. Pretty simple, right? Well, we like to think we're using these essays as a starting point for conversations that end up going in strange and surprising directions. Nothing makes us happier than dragging luminaries like Mencken, Orwell, Adorno, and Didion into our own long-standing obsessions with conspiracy theories, the National Security State, media consolidation, high and low culture, and the meaning and purpose of religion. But this isn't a seminar, and we're not scholars or experts. Joe is a comic, Josh is a writer, and for them, this is just fun. So if you love to read but feel like you don't do enough of it, and you think you might enjoy hearing two ordinary guys shoot the s*** about things other than sports, politics, or pop culture, this is the podcast for you. Each episode, we choose a reading that's publicly available and encourage all our listeners to read it beforehand so you can follow along with our conversation. And of course, you can also always contact us with your thoughts, too!

One million people were killed in a one hundred days by their neighbors, colleagues, and associates in Rwanda from the Hutu ethnic group. The countries leadership in 1994 instigated this misguided hate and stripped an entire ethnic group, the Tutsi, of their humanity, equating them with cockroaches. The weapons of mass destruction used in this massacre against the Tutsi and the moderate Hutu who helped them, weren’t bombs or guns. One million people were beaten and hacked to death by clubs and machetes. The survivors of the genocide are reminded of the torment they endured daily by the physical scars, deformities, and acquired diseases they’ve learned to live with. The most difficult hurdle in their journey however, isn’t visible. It’s the scars etched into their hearts with the one true weapon of mass destruction… hate.

Demarchoe Carpenter was only seventeen when he was wrongfully convicted of murder. He spent the next twenty-two years of his life trying to prove his innocence. His wrongful conviction isn't an isolated incident, but rather part of a larger systemic breakdown. Through Buried Alive: Demarchoe's story we hope to identify the systemic causes that ultimately led to his wrongful incarceration... and to use that knowledge to effect change.

CTZN Podcast is reimagining a citizenship of solidarity. Not the kind the requires documents and papers. But a practice of how we take care of each other and the whole of society. We’re daring to ask hard questions about who we are and who we are to one another and what’s possible when we show up for the wellbeing of the whole. We are truth seekers, bridge builders and CTZNs of humanity. And we are rising up.
