Welcome to Episode 23 of Nooks and Crannies!

Dated and Used Critical Pedagogy and Israeli Electoral Playoff Runs

Welcome back to the podcast folks and thanks for sticking around during this tragic hiatus. Next episode will be an in memoriam Tribute Episode to Evan’s biggest fan and Mamoo’s Mom, Sue Sanderson…Love you mom, as you knew.

This week is the episode we had banked from a number of weeks ago, we kick things off with an impassioned trip that Matty took to the crème de la crème Used Book store in Victoria BC called Russell Books (ps. NERD ALERT!! You can order online eh...)

(5:02) “What Just Happened?” - On this edition of WJH? Evan graciously informed Matty on the results and the context behind the recent (3 months ago) Israeli Elections and how the Ultra-Orthodox Jewish community is being used as a wedge issue to split the Right in that country. Fascinating as always, and here you thought I just keep Evan around for his incredibly dashing appearance?!? Here is a more recent article, not sure but it seems Israel just had another election..like yesterday or something!

(19:30) Hey, folks did you know that Matty volunteers with a great group of Retired Folk down at his local forest pulling invasive species out and having just a grand ol’ time! Go volunteer with seniors, they will make you feel young and important!! _ Lil Nooks and Crannies PSA there eh…

(22:55) No one asked for it, but here it is…the much anticipated CRITICAL PEDAGOGY segment!!! Mamoo is going to pedantically and egotistically teach you all how to “Think Proper”. What a dick eh?

 (35:27) And to put a wrap on this thing, we, of course, give our predictions for the NHL and NBA finals. Hold onto your inflatable noisemakers folks, I think this might be our least informed sports segment of all time. GOOOOOOOO Grizzles!!

Here is a Playlist that is all Broadway Musicals

Especially the indelible Andrew Lloyd Webber :)

Welcome to Episode 22 of Nooks and Crannies!

Bond and Brexit w/Post-9/11 Cinematic Commentary

No intro this week, instead Evan and Matt decided to breakdown and tear apart James Bond movies for their misogynistic racism and overall campy vibes.

(10:31) Yes folks, Paul and Mamoo managed to wrap things up on our marathon Action Flick break down recording. Here we chat about Jurassic Park and of course matt has to show horn in Three Ninjas a Dub Pee exclusive must rewatch! (16:02) After this, Paul gives us some interesting thoughts and provides some compelling connections around the Post-9/11 era and its effects on Film and Culture, politics and society. Fascinating work Pauly, considering we were 2hrs deep at this point!!

(27:56) No one asked for it, except Mammo, so here it is…The Brexit analysis segment!! Evan explains all the dynamics, including needing to re-write their trade deals and general effects on the economy of Britain and the EU, why the Right has sold out to xenophobic isolationists, the Irish border (never heard this point made before, smart boy Evan is eh?), what effect if any this has on revitalizing the Left and the fellers finish up making some broader international connections. This is Evan’s best segment so far in Matt’s books…really good job buddy!

(45:53) And, Paul is back…we finish up for reals on Sin City and Ong Bak which is Paul’s favorite type of movie, so we take a lil detour into Chinese martial arts films including the Final Fight scene of the Raid Redemption. We also answer the age-old action movie question; what happens when you send two goons in at once instead of one at a time?!?! Apparently, Tony Jaa will whoop you’re A$$!

(Yes, I called him Tony Lau..Andy Lau, however, is one of my good friend's favorite actor of all time. This was how i got confused. Sorry Tony, please..dear god I am sorry!)

Thanks for joining us folks, be sure to hit share!

Welcome to Episode 21 of Nooks and Crannies!

Apologetic Antiquing, Challenging US Military Norms and Livestream 3.0 Redux

Welcome back folks and thanks for staying subscribed :)

Evan tries to kick things off this week but failed miserably, instead Matty was forced to shoehorn in a discussion of oolong tea and acupuncture, which he deftly maneuvered towards an in-depth conversation about his Favorite Post-Concussion Show: Antiques Roadshow UK!

(10:22) We hear from the thought-filled former Host of the sorely missed podcast: Spouse Spouts, Susan Reynolds, whose show was dedicated to advocacy and awareness around the issues faced by Military Families. This segment was taken from the start of her Chronicity interview, we were talking about the nature of her podcast and, no surprise here with Susan, she launches into a fascinating discussion about the challenges and misconceptions of the challenges faced by US Service Personnel in regards to their mental health. I have honestly never heard this “take” before but am not surprised that Susan would have made such a thoughtful connection. Please re-launch Spouse Spouts!! :)

(22:00) For those of you who missed the 3rd Annual Livestream for the Cure, podcastathon to raise funds for the Cancer Research Institute https://fundraise.cancerresearch.org/fundraiser/1947095)

There is still time to donate if you feel so inclined and are able. And if you just cannot get enough of Matty the sadsac Sanderson, well here is your chance to listen to the 30min segment I put together for the event. Be sure to follow this link: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/32TuFYJw7MNqW0JPmqDfJY to hear the playlist that is designed to be played alongside the pod segment itself. Perry was a big music person, so I thought it was apropos.

Rest well big fella, talk to you all soon!

Overpriced Beers make Paa_uul get Political w/The 3rd Annual Livestream for the Cure

Short notes this week, Matty got yet another concussion (2 in three weeks!)...

We kick things off without an intro and jump right into a love-fest over the CBC’s hourly News and Current Event program: The World this Hour, then it’s a complain-fest about over-priced BC Craft beers!

Which leads us to Paul’s political Left-Hand turn while discussing the feminist ramifications of Alien and Aliens (4:13) and offers up a scathing critique of the US Military Industrial Complex and how the USA treats its veterans, because you know, we were talking about Rambo. Its awesome folks, check it out.

After I wipe the S*** Eater Grin off my face, Evan and Matty Dork out over the dorkiest podcast in both our podcatchers, that’s right folks its: In Our Time w/Matt’s Muse, Melvin Bragg (20:07).

We hear some love that Paul has for the indelible Jackie Chan (27:23) and then we hear all about the 3rd annual Livestream for the Cure event, hosted by the amazing Epic Film Guys (33:08)!

I used episode 192 to prep for the Avengers: End Game Spoiler Fest episode, I forgot to link the episode of course, so here it is…thanks again Nick!

***SPOILER-FEST***

Avengers: Endgame

Welcome to the first of many more Spoiler-Fest Bonus Episodes; Avengers: Endgame!

Of course, we are pleased to welcome back, re: dragged back kicking, screaming and overall reluctantly, Paul, the really nice dude who needs a better podcast nickname than “That Movie Guy”, Combs!

If that were not enticing enough, Paul somehow convinced his former co-host (and RL good friend) Joseph from Matty’s FAVORITE Indie movie review podcast EVER! C & C Geekcast to join in on this SPOILER-Fest Episode!!

So total fan-boi moment right!!!??? True, but I also needed both Joseph and Paul’s assistance because, SPOILER ALERT: Matt has never seen an Avengers movie, and has maybe only seen 20 mins of some random Iron Man movie at some point…So, ya.

The conversation turned out to be fascinating and I know all you super fans out there will love it, and honestly, even those who are a little muh on Superhero sheeeeeet, will very much enjoy the analysis Paul and Joseph provide, which of course is well anchored in the Profundity that is Mamoo.

***PS: Duh, this is a spoiler episode, look at the title, don’t think you were not forewarned!!***

Welcome to Episode 19 of Nooks and Crannies!

Concussed 80s Action Flicks, Feminist Teething, Confused Venezuelan Coups:

What Was That Like?  

Good to be back after the break week: Evan wrote an amazing paper and Matt got concussion number 28 on Good Friday! Suffice to say, the show notes are gonna be a little on the short side this episode.

We kick things off with an intro where Matty reveals the two playlists he has been listening to with Violet during breakfast: Violet’s Teething Remix and Vi’s Feminist Indoctrination, vol. 1

Next up is Brian, Matt’s Chronic Illness Muse, King who turned the tables at the end of our chat and interviewed me about anthropology and medical anth. Always a treat to have a thoughtful individual ask you questions about a passion. Thanks buddy P-)

After we lost Brian (his WiFi dropped randomly and we decided to just call it), we have another edition of the hottest segment in podcasting; “Podcast Recommendation Section, w/Nooks and Crannies”, on this edition we hear about Matt’s new favorite show: What Was That Like, hosted by perhaps the most perfectist interviewer in the game Scott Johnson. Just hit subscribe and take a peek at the episode titles, that’s all it took for Evan and I to get hooked.

***Trigger Warning: Episode 22 of What was that Like, it gets pretty rough. I would recommend proceeding with trepidation. It was one where part of it I wish I could have unheard.***

It is also one of the most harrowing accounts ever...

Anywho..Let's Lighten the mood a bit with Paul, the movie podcast guy who still needs a better podcasting nickname than this, Combs and Matty dorking out over 1980’s era Action Flicks!!! Don’t worry, somewhere in here I managed to wedge in Over the Top and Space Jam, but that also might have been last episode or on the next one, folks, what I am trying to say here is I got a concussion okay??!?! Jeeze

Okay back to the heavy, Matt gives you all a full account of his 28th concussion and how he somehow managed to pull off, with the able and supportive helpy of melly, his first ever full on Turkey Dinner! Do not know how I did it, cuz I barely remember Monday, or Sunday or … Talk to you all soon.

Oh wait, there is more! Next segment is a new one, tentatively called: What Just Happened, a political and current events segment that Evan came up with that, honestly folks, its just a convenient way for yours truly to stay up to date on politics! On the inceptional

Welcome to Episode 18 of Nooks and Crannies!

Reflexive Concussed Methodologies, LBB’s and 80s Action Flicks w/Names Redacted

Matty sets the table with a heartfelt soliloquy on being chronically post-concussed. (3:05) the Intro starts, where Matty introduces Epen to one of the weirder yet developmentally rich Netflix baby shows which also happens to have one of the more disturbing names around. Again Matt pulls back the chronically ill 4th curtain to explain how he uses music in the morning to reset the emotional tenor of the day with wee lil baby Vi (5:25) by making a Hap-Phee Playlist.

Oh, Matt also made a Westcoast Gangsta Rap playlist for his own emotional wellbeing. Matt even slipped in a subtle name drop to Kristaps, his favorite Latvian and host of The Eastern Border podcast, cuz he is radical go support his show, participation is compulsory!!

(11:29) So, Matty goes for Thai take out from Thai Lemongrass but has time to kill so he heads over to his favorite and closest Cold Beer and Wine Store *The Caddy Bay Liquor Store. With yet more time to kill, he is doing his groove thaaaang outside and sees this public notice posted to the side of an electrical pole from: **NAME REDACTED FOR PERSONAL SAFETY**: Funny II; Even More Excerpts from my Written Stuff…Evan Reads.

(17:55) Hey folks, ever wanted to know how to apply Reflexivity to your very own Ethnographic Research Projects?? Well..um…look no further than right here I guess. Yes, Matty is Self-Indulgently talking about his own Concussion research in a rather uncomfortable self-congratulatory fashion. Oh hey, look…Is that an embedded hyperlink to his own research??

*Ya, I am THAT OLD, I use the phrase hyperlink still, go take a ride on the information superhighway you jerk!

(39:18) We have another chunk of audio from Paul, the guy who needs a better podcasting nickname than The Movie Guy, Combs and Matt and him are talking 80s ACTION FLICKS! We cover a lot of ground in this shortish segment in which Paul does a bang-up job corralling me, however, I did manage to shoehorn in a discussion on Space Jam *hit that link to see what the internet looked like in 1996!

And, of course, the underrated Sylvester Stallone arm-wrestling family film Over the Top which also has an amazing soundtrack highlighted by Kenny, the king of the 80s, Loggins and the Robin Zander classic which I hope no Trump supporter ever hears, might be a new theme song. Other fine cinematic masterpieces raised: Lethal Weapon, Blood Sport including an inordinate focus on JCVD’s splitting abilities (3:38), Turner and Hooch, Tango and Cash and our views on Danny Glover (two-time N&C Honourable Mention).

Screw it, here is a link to the Rocky 4 Training montage for no reason whatsoeva!

 (55:08) Last and certainly least Evan, the Kasparov acolyte, Ferguson throws down a gauntlet and challenges you all to a Chess.com ass whooping at the hands of Iamnotarook420! Or if you need a confidence booster then come challenge Matty over here on the Bott Account.

Welcome to Episode 17 of Nooks and Crannies!

Paa_ul_s Podcast: Action Flicks, First Blood Part 1ish

This week on Nooks and Crannies, Paul Combs foolishly agreed to join Matty for what turned into an absolute marathon session, and I ain't talking about Paul’s Running, nope we did a genre deep dive on Action Movies. (5:05) We kick things off with an overview of some of the features of the genre, spoiler alert: not a lot (any) female leads until the 1980’s, so this is a dudefest episode…good thing Paul is so darn likable. Paul uses Commando as the quintessential action flick, we also name drop: Beverly Hills Cop as action-comedy, Rambo 3 to see Rambo in Afghanistan and the Last Action Hero as a perfect parody action movie.

We then get into the real early history (8:15) including the Lumiere bros. classic “proof of concept” film from 1895 Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat technically this is the first “Action” film. (12:10) Buster Keaton (IMDB) gets a well deserved focus in this early history (1920’s), be sure to watch The General (1926) in Paul’s opinion it is his finest work or The Frozen North (1922) cuz its Buster in Canada! I also found this amazing interview he gave in the early 70’s overdubbed on a compilation of his greatest stunts. Paul reminded us all about Harold Lloyd who Matty treated like the lesser Keaton (14:35), but I did remember to bring up the famous hanging from a clock stunt from Safety Last! (1923).

To cap the 20-30’s off, Matty gushes over Errol Flynn and the impact The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) had on young Mamoo when he was a wee lad (20:11), but not this one from the 20’s that is really quite awful. After an awkward edit break where I was planning on playing a movie trailer but thought better of it…We chat about Paul’s favorite role model James Bond and who he considers the personification of his own personality Sean Connery (28:20).

The 1950-60’s was dominated by Westerns and military films when it came to “Action” films, the 1970’s was kinda depressing and Sci-fi then took over the action genre for the latter half of the decade. It was not until the 1980’s that the genre itself became fully fledged. So in this last segment (33:00), Paul and I try to name as many movies as possible, including for some reason T1 and T2? The OG Mad Max, The French Connection (35:26) Paul has a doozy of a tidbit on this film, Dirty Harry, Bullet surprised to learn that this is one of Paul’s favorites and he smartly explained why the late 60-70’s saw a boom in car-centric action movies, Death Race 2000 (1975) the amazing early Sylvester Stallone film, Dirty Dozen and The Wild Bunch, Independence Day and Saving Private Ryan dunno why here but there you go.

Oh right, Matt tries to explain why there is no such thing as a Canadian Action movie but does throw Last of the Mohican out there as a pitiful example (46:00). Then we finally cap this half!?! That’s right folks, this is only the first half of the Marathon. But we end with one of the most controversial reveals in Nooks and Crannies HISTORY, Paul almost gets booted..it got real ugly (47:26).

Welcome to Episode 16 of Nooks and Crannies!

Reflexive Wellness and Embodied Empathy w/Headhunters

This episode is all about Reflexivity and Wellness, how we can draw on our own experiences to forge relationships based on mutual understanding and by sharing experiences. Fear Not! We will unpack all this in the following ways:

(6:55) Reflexivity is an anthropological methodology and perspective popularized by Renato Rosaldo in the early 90’s. His wife Michelle and he, went off to the Philipines in the 1970’s to conduct fieldwork with a group of Illongot headhunters. Tragedy befell Renato out there and it was this personal experience that inspired the amazing Culture and Truth: the remaking of social analysis. Evan and Matt read passages from this text as a way of unpacking the nuances, Matt of course almost cries, Evan is as smooth as silk as always.

Next episode we will include a discussion on how I applied this concept to my research on post-concussion syndrome in athletes, but for now, consider this a primer and introduction to ol Matty’s favorite anthropologist. Stay tuned to the end of this episode where I share the story of meeting Renato in Chicago at the AAA (American Anthropological Association), no spoilers, but of course Matty started slobber crying (1:00:15).

Next (29:02) we hear from Brian King (MSW), Matty’s personal chronic illness muse we had a rangey conversation that centered on; ADHD, Mindset, how and why Brian shares his illness Publically, the dimensions of parenting with ADHD, why he is such a nice guy and the reasons he formed his own community of the empathetic on the evil platform known as The Facebook!

I included an extra bit of audio leading into this chat (27:50), it’s of him and I checking in on each other. I thought it was interesting to witness reflexive empathy, the vehicle through which individuals with chronic ailments tend to connect: call this, Pragmatic Reflexivity, cuz im a dork

**Side note: Brian needed to have a desk fan on during the conversation and he had some birdies in the background which was a pleasant addition. Plus side: Matty learned how to scrub audio through Audacity thanks to the helpful help of John Bukenas Podcasting Editor EXTRAORDINAIRE! He is a saint, took the time out to answer my super simple question in a very clear and helpful way. I think it sounds decent but as they say in indie podcasting: the sound might not be perfect but the content is gold!

(52:50) Following Brian, we hear from Paul, really needs a better nickname than Movie Person, Combs and we talking Wellness: why and how he got back into running, how he uses technology to help track his results and keep himself motivated and I even demanded that he submit a playlist I titled: Run Paul Run: 4mi, its roughly 50mins long which based on his posts is approximately his 4mile run time. See what we did there? No word on why he is so darn photogenic though…

Let’s wrap this up, hey anyone want to hear about one of the more tragic stories from anthropology that doesn’t involve the perpetuation of colonialism?? Well (1:00:15) hit that timestamp and hear the conclusion of the reflexivity chat in which Renato Rosaldo learned of the Rage that individuals feel through Loss.
