Andrea Subissati is a writer, sociologist and executive editor of Rue Morgue Magazine. She is also the cohost of The Faculty of Horror Podcast.
Jake's monologue deals with the philosophical mystery of existence in films, theatre and popular tv shows.
The episode ends with Cenk's improvised kinetic music.
Jake welcomes local Toronto artist and digital innovator, Anthea Foyer. They talk of media, digital culture, AI, making a living as an artist, the death of capitalism and other big developments that are currently underway. Anthea is a story teller who talks about the power of narrative and it’s value for social good.
Cenk music follows at the end but first we start with Jake’s musings on living systems. This time he highlights the common history between mother and child, from two completely enmeshed body systems into two divergent ones. He explores the process of finding a mate and how the prior experience of mother child bonding might influence his search and how it is likely built upon various biases of attraction. While the mind may say one thing the heart often moves action in a different direction, idea systems vs body systems.
