Is it hysterical to say that C0VID and the government response will amount to 9/11 x 10? I didn't think so on Sunday, but I'm already re-evaluating that statement. So here is the debate that I mentioned in my conversation with Tom Woods, where I wasn't thrilled with my performance (or anyone else's). But I'm interested in your thoughts. Very optional listening! This show is filled with cynicism, strong language, and some speculation. This was on the comedy podcast I do (this isn't funny though) called Portmansheau. h2>Please Support School Sucks

"I am all for taking reasonable precautions and keeping an eye on this virus. And we can discuss which methods more effectively preserve biological life. But is mere biological life worth living? If people's hopes, dreams, and aspirations are all dashed for an indefinite period of time, is that living? "Probably no mass gatherings for a long time." How long? And what are "mass gatherings"? Oh, just concerts, theater, lectures, church, sporting events, the arts in general -- pretty much everything that makes life worth living. The kind of "life" all this portends has a pulse, yes, but no soul." - Tom Woods, April 4th

Staci Hill is a School Sucks listener, and an academic coach who introduced herself to me as someone who's "had too much school." Staci holds two masters degrees: one in chemistry from Yale University and one in the liberal arts (with a focus on Euclidean geometry) from St. John's College (we'll discuss this too). She recently left a Ph.D program at Yale, and her story leads us into an introductory conversation about college and career. Even though we recorded this weeks ago it references several problems with information and worldview acquisition that have certainly come more into focus with recent news developments. Our main topic is a recent nationwide survey of 21,678 U.S. high school students. Researchers from the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and the Yale Child Study Center report almost 75% of the students negative and distressing feelings related to school. We'll also talk about a more qualitative study, conducted by the Journal of Learning and Instruction, using "experience sampling" of 472 high school students in Connecticut. The downloadable version of The Ideas Into Action Summit is now available. Visit sspuniversity.com/ideasintoaction to learn more about the presenters, topics, bonus materials and encore presentation.

CJ is the host of Dangerous History and a regular contributor to School Sucks. He joins me to discuss how to put the current crisis into a historical context, how he talks to his children about this situation, and what personal and philosophical silver linings we might find in what's happening. This new format - check-ins with people from my life who want to talk about the current situation in a manner that I think will be helpful and informative - will continue, but we will also be resuming our regular content very soon!

Paul Verge is a friend, a film maker, and one of the founding members of Tragedy and Hope. I met Paul back in 2010 when he interviewed me for a film called Believers Beware. Earlier this month Paul was put under quarantine after his wife was exposed at a conference. We talk about that experience, and how Paul coped then and since then. I hope this dialogue is helpful because many of us will probably know someone (or need to support someone close to someone) in this situation. This will be our new format for the foreseeable/unforeseeable future - check-ins with people from my life who want to talk about the current situation in a manner that I think will be helpful and informative.

School Sucks favorite Nick Hazelton is back to discuss a purposeful way of connecting with nature: foraging. Don't panic! We're not suggesting it will be necessary; I'm actually hoping that there's some peace of mind in just knowing that nature has some exciting new salad ingredients for you. This will be our new format for the foreseeable/unforeseeable future - check-ins with people from my life who want to talk about the current situation in a manner that I think will be helpful and informative.

Free Bonus Friday Enjoy (and you will enjoy) a snip of one of our bonus productions for supporting listeners, including The Discomfort Zone, In Pursuit of Utopia, Picture of the Month Club, and other older selections. (FULL AUDIO: 109 MINUTES) Is T2 is the best action film ever made? Thirteen-year-old Brett Veinotte thought so! It's certainly one of the most impressive sequels . Directed by James Cameron and released in 1991, T2 set a new standard for blockbuster films. Some of the (mind-boggling by 1991 standards) special effects might look a bit dated today, but there are numerous reasons this film has stood the test of time. We'll discuss... - the story laid out in The Terminator and Terminator 2, and the predestination paradox, but we don't get stuck here forever - what is the film trying to say about humanity, destiny, and hope? - the character arcs of Sarah Connor and the T-800 (Arnold) - Why the film's score works so well - T2 introduced cutting-edge CGI , but it should not overshadow the long list of perfectly executed practical effects - Pacing and the problem with the theatrical trailer - nothing about Terminator 3, Terminator Salvation and Terminator Genysis (but the new film Dark Fate is canon with the first 2) PICTURE OF THE MONTH CLUB is a monthly series featuring Dutch - a delightful, insightful and successful film maker who wants to teach you the grammar and logic of cinema. Many will remember Dutch from the CINEMAnufacturing series. Released March 11th, 2020 on Patreon, A/V Club and SubscribeStar. The downloadable version of The Ideas Into Action Summit is now available. Visit sspuniversity.com/ideasintoaction to learn more about the presenters, topics, bonus materials and encore presentation.

Free Bonus Friday Enjoy (and you will enjoy) a snip of one of our bonus productions for supporting listeners, including The Discomfort Zone, In Pursuit of Utopia, Picture of the Month Club, and other older selections. Actually, your enjoyment today cannot be guaranteed. Have you ever listened to something because it was so bad and you just wanted to see what was going to happen next? This audio is kind of like that, but nothing ever happens. The most recent episode of The Discomfort Zone is out: (s03e06)Discomfort Phone. But I can't preview it here due to its personal nature. Instead you'll hear an agonizing clip from this earlier episode: The Discomfort Zone (s02e15) #Happiness911 Released September 12th, 2019 on Patreon, A/V Club and SubscribeStar. Description: In the middle of their dopamine fast, Andrew and Brett meet in a public park to loathe the day together. They also contemplate failed relationships and their own deaths. You'll cry so hard you'll laugh. Get all episodes of The Discomfort Zone: Support Us The downloadable version of The Ideas Into Action Summit is now available.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
