Episode never sent.
 
This time we release upon the world...The World. Back when we took a year long break without telling anyone we had some recordings we never did anything with. Here is one of these recordings.
 
Harland and Ryan have different styles of thinking about things and that includes "everything." So enjoy this brief excursion into our past.
 
Besides everything and what we make of it, what's The World to you?

E45: Dawdler Review - Triamonds, Episodic Synchronies, and NME Skeptics!

September 24, 2021

Whoo boy! Ryan is back in the swing of things with his kids in school and sports and ballet and covid and everyone's FREAKIN OUT! Harland is on a journey through the red states lookin' for a poker game or two. Apparently, Austin is nice...and hot. But they're back with your best interests in mind. Except there is no "mind" and they don't know what your interests are, let alone your best ones, because you won't tell them.

That's why they're doing a review of some core ideas. Now that they have 27.7 listeners they have to onboard all 26.7 of you newbies! 

They cover a framework they call "Modes of Inquiry." Then there's Ryan's baby, "Episodic Synchrony." And last, and very much least, Dr. Ought-opus and his idea, NME skepticism. Catch 'em all while you can!

And tell your friends!

Outside, triple masked, and 20 feet apart,

Another letter. Another obsessive and compulsive repeating of oneself over and over again. Ryan replies to Harland's reply because he can't help but indulge in his thoughts and justifications. Maybe Ryan misses the point. Maybe he's on point. Tune in to find out!

No one needed this. Few people wanted it. But here it is, world. Basically, we're standing near an on-ramp to the infosphere holding a black markered cardboard sign which reads, "Will podcast for beer - God jest you".

Here I am,  never-minding my own business when I stub my toe on a liter litter bottle full of semantics.  Well how's about that?!  It's from my old buddy old pal Sci-Guy Ry-- what a nice surprise!

I should really not Dawdle too long and get back to him, lest remain least on the list of priorities!  

Feel free to listen in, dear old friends.
