Welcome to Episode 54 of Nooks and Crannies!

Hazy Climate Change, the RBG Carrot + Stick, or Why OG Paul is so Existentially Exhausted?

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome and Thank you to our cohort of listeners; without your unwavering support we would not have reached 5000 total DL’s/Listens! Huge milestone that Evan and I never thought we would reach, could not have done it without your earholes and without all our wonderful recurring guests!

Okay. Enough of that shit, lets get intensely political and induce existential despair! Pay back for the last episode which was super a-political and silly:

https://nooksandcrannies.podbean.com/e/53-random-burlesque-culinary-publishing-fun-with-moxie-other-paul-and-dante-s-inferno

Kicking things off Matty fills Epen in on his “fuck of a last three weeks” which included; losing a golf match, shamefully having to buy bubble tea, a major and embarrassing concussion (numero 38 I think), forest fire apocalyptic smoke, a COVID test and most importantly of all, Matt started a Farmville Farm.

Then Evan and I start deep diving on the politics of modern forest management principles, including indigenous principles, and of course Swidden Agriculture! Future episode for sure, such dorks we are..

We then hear from OG Paul about the depths of his political existential despair in relation to the QAnnon conspiracy and the dumbing down (uncritical nature) of American Society and how this relates to the impending presidential election.

OGP takes us home with some extra sad discussion on the passing of Chief Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and how impactful her life and career was to American’s interested in positive progress, justice and equality.

As per special request, and with permission from the artist, I play a little ditty from Ms Vi:

(2019) Three Little Birds by The Indelible Violet, Produced by Proud Pappa Matty. Creative Commons 4.0 :-P  

Talk to you all real soon, be well, eat well, peace and solidarity, keep up the good fights and aren’t we lucky?!?

And thanks again for all the support, it is truly humbling. Much Love

Random Burlesque Culinary Publishing Fun with Moxie, Other Paul and Dante’s Inferno~

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Check below for an inordinate amount of links, this one is a random fun one with Other Paul (from Varmints! Podcast) and Moxie (Your Brain on Facts *pod and book); with Other Paul we talks aboot Canadian “weapons grade” snack foods and how Matty is gonna ship him some choice selections, and with Moxie…well, if you heard her first appearance, we covered a lot of ground as well as some behind the curtains details about running a oligarchic Burlesque Troop! *I found a link to Dante in 2015, see the very bottom. Pun absolutely intended!

Talk to you all real soon, be well, eat well, peace and solidarity, keep up the good fights and aren’t we lucky?!?

Welcome to Episode 52

of Nooks and Crannies!

Chronicity Teaser or Two Scoops of Chronic Illness with Other Paul and Moxie

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Well howdy there folks, we have a meaty course for you all today in Chronic Illness Narratives, Care-Giving and Experience! I promise the next few will be lighter.

I have jumped back into transcribing the Chronicity Series *17 interviews with chronic illness sufferers mashed up into an 8 part series, so I must have had pain and illness on my mind when I recorded both of these interviews on the same day, with Moxie (http://yourbrainonfacts.com/) and Other Paul from Varmints! which he co-hosts with the amazing Donna (https://www.podchaser.com/podcasts/varmints-230694)

Paul kicks things off by talking to Matty about his migraines and being diagnosed Bi-Polar 2 years ago before some new interlude music from Cullah *links below (13:30), then it’s Moxie’s turn to talk Care-Giving to a person with a severe pain condition and the strains it puts on relationships.

More new interlude music (28:52) Then ol’ Capt. Concussion dishes reflexively on, you guessed it, CONCUSSIONS! Oh you betchya there is more interlude music, (42:30) before Moxie tells us why her hips certainly don’t lie and why Cats are such loveable bastards. MeeOww

Talk To You all Soon, Aren't we Lucky, Peace and Solidarity and Keep Fighting the Good Fights

Side-Bars: Karrington Speaks His Truths and Matty Learned a Lot

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Happy 20Tenth Birthday!!! Karrington from Real Dudes on Indie Gaming: https://www.realdudespodcast.com/about

Gonna keep the notes short on this one because Karrington said it all. There are some very disturbing accounts of racism and police harassment in this episode, so if this triggering to you for any reason, I would suggest listening with that in mind.

Thank you K for being such a Real Dude when speaking your truths. I learned a lot

Welcome to Episode 51 Nooks and Crannies!

Poopy-UFO Stories and No-Prep Homemade Political Soup

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome to a Nooks and Crannies 1st! No topics, No Prep, Somehow our best episode this year!

Evan leads us in with a dental water-boarding experience he had and suggests a round-table style discussion on book-binding, before Matty blows his socks off with:

Not 1, But 2!! UFO Stories!!! 

Here is our previous Alien episode:

https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/nooks-and-crannies/e/66680398

Watch for this to be played on Somewhere in the Skies: https://www.podbean.com/podcast-detail/y3iyn-4fdc6/Somewhere-in-the-Skies-Podcast

(11:55) Okay, back to our regularly scheduled topics..The De-Masked Joe Biden has chosen his running mate, Kamala Harris who also went to High school in Montreal apparently. No surprise here, so we spin this into a discussion on the disappearance of the Center, why Libs cannot Meme, and polemics.

(19:57) Matty would love to recommend two podcasts from The Ringer:

Higher Learning: https://www.theringer.com/2020/5/26/21270685/introducing-higher-learning-with-van-lathan-and-rachel-lindsay

The Bakari Sellers Podcast:

https://www.theringer.com/bakari-sellers-podcast

(24:38) For some reason we started talking about how much of a douche bag Rex Murphy, Canadian opinion columnist and professional curmudgeon…Matty gets a little cheap shotty and Evan is lost for words. I highly do not recommend you Google image him..its jarring

 (28:42) On a much more tragic note, we discuss briefly the Nova Scotia massacre from a few months ago…Evan read in Macleans *big deal publication up here, that the shooter had some very suspicious looking ties to the RCMP as not an informant, more so an Agent..I will link two articles here, you decide:

https://www.macleans.ca/news/canada/the-nova-scotia-shooter-case-has-hallmarks-of-an-undercover-operation

https://www.macleans.ca/politics/ottawa/the-nova-scotia-murders-end-the-farce-call-the-inquiry  

(35:35) So, that’s why we don’t cover true crime on the pod…okay, better taste in our mouths you say? No? Okay whatever, looks like im talking to myself again…Here is another Cooking Time with Sous Chef Evan: Soup and Stock!

Talk to you all soon, aren’t we lucky, peace and solidarity, be well and keep fighting those good fights!

Welcome to Nooks and Crannies!

Side-Bars: Karrington The Real Dude gets Real Political…Dude! See what we did there?

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome back, its been a while, a whole 20 mins! Insomnia is back with ol Matty, so I figured..why not just publish another episode?!

https://nooksandcrannies.podbean.com/e/side-bars-karrington-the-real-dude-on-all-things-political-gaming-and-rye

Hold onto your Socialism folks, this is about to get very political! We start by getting into our original intended topic of “The Politics of/in Sports” by referencing the 1968 Summer Olympics (Mexico City) Human Rights salute by US track athletes John Carlos and Tommie Smith. I just now learned that all three medalists (including Silver winner from Australia, Peter Norman) all wore human rights badges on their jackets. That’s pretty interesting eh?

We then take a crazy Ivan *Sudden and Abrupt Left-Hand Turn, and just bash the shit out of America for like 25mins. Karrington made some great connections including video game and Star Wars analogies, a tough question from Matt (do you play as Nazi’s when you video game?), George W Bush’s “art” and the many ways the US has fallen from grace.

We share some experiences from our grandfather’s who both served in the Air Force (M served in WW2 and he shares his story) before discussing how combat vets tend to come back as pacifists.

By no means folks, this is not Matty looking down his regal Canadian nose at y’all, the developments down south are disturbing and I think we all are just trying to make sense of stuff.

Welcome to Nooks and Crannies!

Side-Bars: Karrington the Real Dude on all things, Political Gaming and Rye!

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome to first timer Karrington from Real Dudes on Indie Gaming: https://www.realdudespodcast.com/about

Karrington, bless his heart, made the terrible mistake of suggesting that he is “not really a political kinda guy” on DM before chatting, ‘Ol Matty took this as an affront and challenge! :-P 1:55:30 later..this is the result.

We kick things off with Mamoo brutalizing another introduction before continuing our off mic convo on Canadian fermented products, including a shoe-horned historical tidbit about Prohibition.

We then talk about Karrington et.al.’s really compelling show, I had no idea Indie Game development was such a vibrant field, we also share some old-school techie memories from the 90’s including Matty’s love of 3.5inch floppy’s.

I appreciate that the Real Dudes make space for underrepresented groups and individuals in the gaming space. This was my opening…I politically doubled down or double-doubl’ed eh?

We cap this rangy 30 with the story of how his parents met-met in college and then I edited out the story of how I swept Melly off her feet back in 2006.

Love ya Love!

Talk to you all soon, aren’t we lucky, peace and solidarity, be well and keep fighting those good fights!

Welcome to Nooks and Crannies!

Birthin Through our Pseudo-Penis’ and more with Moxie, instant recurring guest

 

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Howdy Folks, Welcome to Nooks and Crannies! We have the unstoppable force of factual factoids, Moxie from Your Brain on Facts, our newest instant recurring guest!

 

We kick things off by talking about her random ass podcast and why she started it before delving into some meta podcasting chatting. (15:02) We get into the Lightning Strike and her ensuing neuro-cognitive struggles of which Capt. Concussion over here can totally relate to, so I put my stanky Medical Anth Blue Jay’s hat on and ask her some inappropriately personal questions! Fun!!

 

(22:30) Matty throws a sudden and unexpected left-hand turn down and we start talking burlesque, how Moxie got into this fantastic art form, what Nerdy stuff she incorporated, how her hubby donned a “fat-suit” and trampolined into the heart of the one and only George R.R. Martin! Matty gets to do his own nerding out here, big fan of fashion even through Evan has described my look as “like a ramshackle restaurant with surprisingly good food but you don’t want to see the kitchen..” I love drag and burlesque, love RuRu and Tim Gunn, so I extended this convo into the gendered dynamics of the forms including Male-ID’ing burlesque performers and drag-kings. Then a little chumbawumba ;-)

 

https://nooksandcrannies.podbean.com/e/39-ethnographic-covidian-observations-or-how-we-learned-to-love-social-distancing

 

(36:24) What you have listened to was ‘part 1’ technically, even though this is Part 2 and now you are listening to the back half of the interview which means..you know what? My head hurts, these notes are way too long, I am going golfing soon…so if you have listened/read this far, you get a treat, you get to hear about how/why female hyenas birth through their pseudo-penis’ :-P Moxie did well, gold star buddy!

We have not recorded together for over a month and within this time it seems like some shit has hit the fan and it is sticking! ;-(

 

Starting with COVID in Canada (as we were recording there was a sudden resurgence across the country) and how much better we are doing than the US and why…

(19:20) We move from alienating the biggest portion of our fan base to realienating them by drawing attention to the horrific scenes of violence and state sanctioned kidnapping *not exaggerating, out of Portland OR. This discussion was too much for ol bleeding heart Matty, I was for once lost for words.

 

We hit on a few other topics in here; the November election, the US Supreme Court and their sorta dissention, how Trump is acting like a totalitarian and why The Lincoln Project (26:14) is not all that it supposes to be!

Welcome to Nooks and Crannies!

Sidebars: Paul Wheel III the Good Person asks Matty about the Canadian Indigenous Experience or Why he looks like a Prius Driving Vegan?

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

**Sorry for the unexpected hiatus, ol Matty’s noggin fully gave out a couple 3 weeks ago, then a bunch in between. We/I am back now, thanks for staying subscribed**

This is part 2 of our new recurring episode series: Politically Checking in with Good Person Paul, our now 3rd co-host. Here is part 1 *BLM and Georgia are the topics:

https://nooksandcrannies.podbean.com/e/sidebars-paul-the-good-person-just-politically-checking-in-or-georgia-on-his-mind-20-with-covidian-blm

In part 2 Paul asks Matty to condense down the Canadian First Nation’s (Indigenous) experience and relate it to the African American experience in relation to structural inequalities, historicity and police violence. So…meaty!

I have a good friend who is Métis and works in the health field, have wanted to have her on since we started the show, maybe just maybe I left room for her to expound and correct, maybe that’s why this topic came up, or maybe its coincidence or more likely the parallels are there and glaring! IDK

After that heaviness, Paul lightens things up by talking about the weight he lost, and how his new approach to “wellness living” has inspired his much better half to join him in climbing a former Confederate battle ground, 4 times a week, and it seems like they don’t even fight about it at all! Proud of you Amanda, but Paul is way more proud :-)

Keep being inspirational you two!! Still waiting for those tamales you were supposed to mail up here…disappointed for sure Amanda :-(

Be Well, Strength and Solidarity, and Aren’t we Lucky?

Talk to you all soon!

Welcome to Nooks and Crannies!

Sidebars (Paul, the Good Person): Just Politically Checking in, or Georgia on His Mind 2.0 with #BLM

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome back folks, Strength and Solidarity in wherever your Struggle may be.

#Blacklivesmatter #Solidarity

What you are about to hear is two good friends checking in on one another, one from Georgia *we start here, the other a self-satisfied Canadian (me).

This is a very political conversation touching on all the topics, with a special focus on Georgia and COVID before digging fairly deep into the #BLM demonstrations and activism that has occurred. Because we live within intersectional times and these are intersectional political issues (translation: complex and mutually informing factors) I would say, listen, hit share if you like, and check out the links below (these will change every episode)

:::::::::::::::   

We have a Part 2 that covers Canadian First Nations issues (Indigenous Peoples in Canada) as a way of comparison to the exploitative treatment that Black peoples have experienced in the US; ending on a lighter note about weight loss and wellness, with a surprise body dysmorphic conversation.

Sidebars (Comrade Heather): The Green Party, Howie Hawkins/Angela Walker and the Unification of the Left

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome back folks, hope all are well and like me, learning a lot.

#Blacklivesmatter #Solidarity

*This was another that was recorded before the death of George Floyd, FYI

Comrade Heather from New Jersey Revolution Radio (https://njrevolutionradio.com/) and Wine Women and Revolution (https://njrevolutionradio.com/wine-women-revolution/) rejoins us for Round 3, with Evan!! And we are talking the US Green Party, their Presidential Candidate Howie Hawkins (https://twitter.com/HowieHawkins), their electoral chances, strategy and the Unification of the Left.

Heather conducted a thought-provoking and enducing interview with Mr. Hawkins, I would encourage you all to check it out..it was, lets just say, a breath of fresh-air in the fraught polemic times we find ourselves enmeshed:

Welcome to Episode 49 of Nooks and Crannies!

Second Place Confederate Trophy Cases and the Racialization of American Life with Moxie la Mouth, from Your Brain on Facts

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

What you are aboot to hear is the middlish section of Matt’s chat with Moxie. We take a sudden and unexpected “Left Hand Turn” (take a swig) and start talking US politics!!

**We were recording this 2 weeks after the death of George Floyd and suffice to say, the situation changed by the time you are hearing this.**

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome Folks, our guest this time *and newest signee of the incredibly binding yet woefully under-compensated Nooks and Crannies pod-contract, Moxie Labouche from Your Brain on Facts (http://yourbrainonfacts.com/); the most trivial in all the best ways, podcast out there.

N&C Bonus Points if you listen to Matty’s pre-record on the Chinampas of Mexico!

:::::::::::

TOPICS: Hold onto your ears, buds, there are a lot (see below for all the links)

- Confederate Statues in Richmond VA, their Monumental status and symbolic meanings A’La C. Geertz actually *Meaningless Bonus Points for knowing who that is..I’m such a dork folks ;-)

- How symbolic meanings morph over time meaning different things to “different people” and Idol Worship (biblical-style)

- Stigmatized and Underrepresentation within a marginalized community *Trans-People of Colour, 3rd mention on the pod…Please Support The Okra Project:

https://www.theokraproject.com

- A helpful way to give back to the community by being a Social Media, Ignoramus Honky Re-Education Specialist! Followed by a whole host of Youtube video’s (below) which will help the entire White Community with nuanced first-hand, experientially based, information about Black Culture and the politics that define.

- Random learning moment about the “Creoleization” of African American names followed by a nuanced discussion about White Privilege and a really honest moment from Moxie. I respect that you shared that, well done new Buddy!

- We then do a rather deep dive into the “Pop Cultural” representations of African American’s in film and TV, and how this actively perpetuates Racial Tropes that are particular to the American Context and Experience.

- All in the Family (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_in_the_Family) – Best show ever and Blazing Saddle’s (1974) are both discussed, asking: could/should these be made now?

- Weirdly “The Jews” come up momentarily, as do the Mennonites and Amish, then the liminality of race and ethnicity and Whoopi Goldberg!

- Moxie is my new favorite :-)

Welcome to Episode 48 of Nooks and Crannies!

Comrade Heather: Gendered Alienating Patriarchical Presidential Politics with Dick Pics, and Evan!

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Howdy Folks, hope you are well as you are demanding justice and your basic civil liberties, know that Evan and I are standing with you in Solidarity, Peace be with Ya’all

(Originally Recorded): Before the Death of George Floyd, please note so you do not think we just glossed over this..Evan and Matty will be recording our "Big Episode" on Policing, Racism and et al. this weekend.

*** Next episode published will be with Moxie from Your Brain on Facts and we get into these tensions and politics in that: http://yourbrainonfacts.com 

*****This is Part 2 of our third round with Heather from Wine Women and Revolution and the NJ Revolution Radio network, the first part is all about the American Green Party and Electoral minutia/reform; which is based off the amazingly thought-provoking interview Heather did with Green US Presidential Candidate Howie Hawkins:

https://njrevolutionradio.com/podcast/an-interview-with-presidential-candidate-howie-hawkins/

In Classic Nooks and Crannies fashion, Matty forces a sudden lefty turn and brings up the fact that both Trump and Biden are woefully unqualified to run and basically WTF are American’s going to do??

Topics Include: in order for a change…

- That they are both documented notorious liar’s with their own “Lame-stream” media outlets that produce propaganda on their behalf

- Why Women get dick pics sent to them (its patriarchal but we dig in a bit with some Matt-Splaning) and a pro-tip from Heather on how to reply

-  Heather digs into the Marxist concept of Reproductive Capital backed by some shocking employment statistics (Marxism 201 here)

- Evan brings up David Graeber's cup analogy, so if your are playing along with the N&C drinking game, take a swig buddy! (Twitter: @davidgraeber)

- We then for some reason get into Universal Basic Income, how economies would respond, what socialism would do and how our Robot Overlords at Amazon would react…Spoiler, T2 style, better get some molten steel brewing :-(

Heather’s New Project: WORKERS

Heather, how is a very talented graphic designer, photographer and apparently video editor, has a new project that is in the very early stages, tentatively called “Worker” which seeks to challenge misnomers and stereotypes about who works and how, while also diversifying our notions of the worker and work. It will be amazing; Evan and I will keep you all in the loop while we wait with eager anticipation!

Welcome to Episode 47 of Nooks and Crannies!

Dialectical Post-Concussed Journeys of Reflexive

Embodied Self-Discovery w/Dr. Woolf

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

*******************TRIGGER WARNING******************

(21:40) Discussion of Suicidal Thoughts and Attempts **3mins worth

*********************SOUND WARNING**********************

Baby! :-) I edited as much out as I could, heads up, its about half way in for 5 mins

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome to Nooks and Crannies! This is Part 2 of a fascinating conversation that Matty was privileged to have with “The Good Doctor” Dr. Woolf (PhD. Spiritual Psych), if you missed it, here is Part 1 where Doc describes his “Big 3” concussions and how it has likely impacted his entire life:

https://nooksandcrannies.podbean.com/e/43-my-so-called-post-concussed-life-with-dr-woolf

Turns out that no matter what the over-wrought highly alienating academic term, concept or name drop that Mamoo flings his way, Dr. Woolf is able to one-up my name drop and provide a more thoughtful analysis! So lets talk dialectical phenomenological existentialism, why the eff not eh?

After scrutinizing the Mind-Body dialectic, Dr. Woolf asks Matty to describe his Ontological orientation towards the world as it relates to TBI (Traumatic Brain Injuries) and whether or not I have a grounding in faith *this guy is the best folks, seriously, might have found Evan’s replacement ;-)

After pontificating on myself for a bit, we cover both of our “Journey’s of Self-Discovery” when it comes to concussions; for Matt it was seeing the researchers from Boston University’s Concussion Legacy Foundation on Larry King Live back in 2008, Dr. Woolf recently enrolled as well, for him it was seeing his son, unfortunately, being involved in a MVA and the resulting high-level of care he received (2019) which compelled the Good Doc on his own existential journey of self discovery through mutual learning with his son and his health care professionals who practiced a huge amount of empathy *which is the “cultural change” in medicine that has happened since Boston U started their research ‘08

****Trigger Warning (21:40) Suicidal Thoughts and Actions**** We get into the Big S here, it’s a common complaint of TBI survivors that suicidal thoughts and notions, or in some cases acts of self-harm and attempts, are quite common. We discuss Dr. Woolf’s life-long struggles here for about 4 MINs.

We also discuss the relation between brain damage and pharmaceutical side-effects, especially SSRI’s *Just want to note, they don’t work for me but if you are in need of acute or long-term mental health pharmaceutical intervention, please explore this option. And to cap things off, we knee cap Mormonism a bit, and especially how it impacted his understanding of himself and the wider world around him.

Ya..we covered a lot of ground, met the guy 4 days before on FB, talked for 3 times longer than I thought and, it was so intensely thought provoking that I knew halfway through that he will be a repeat guest!

Stay tuned, and, boy Aren’t I lucky!?!

Welcome to Nooks and Crannies!

Mini: Netflixian Recommendations with Paul or Why Matt Loves Movies w/ Cannibalism!

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Howdy folks, Paul and I used this bit of the recording as a warm up before launching into the COVID/Corona Conversation, fascinating one actually:

https://nooksandcrannies.podbean.com/e/45-the-devil-went-down-to-georgia-and-paul-has-it-on-his-mind/

Basically this is exactly what it sounds like, just back and forth rapid fire style recs that you may have seen already and a few that you may have missed.

Jordan (doc) M+P

Community (TV) M+P

The Good Life (TV) P-A satirical show about heaven and the meaning of life, some of Paul’s favorite content delves into these subjects

The Platform (Indie Movie) M-Cuz he love me the taste of human flesh, but just in some circumstances…back to Don Quixote!!

Three Identical Strangers (doc) P-Compelling doc about triplets meeting each other as young adults, sounds more interesting then that folks :-)

Hell on Wheels (TV) M-Surprisingly compelling Western that delves into political themes well

Free Solo (Doc) P-Matty the coward will not see this because it made Paul say “oh, oh, my…” a few times. Try to watch on the biggest screen possible!

Bonus content at the end from Mamoo, outlining and justifying his raging Matt-Crush on fellow handsome BC boy: Ryan, I could get lost unpacking that smile for years, Reynolds!

Welcome to Episode 46 of Nooks and Crannies!

Shaming the Senators /or/ Why the Canucks are a Much Better Hockey Franchise?

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Howdy folks, in light of the need for mindless silly content that is also distracting and at times nostalgic, this might be the episode for you..But hey, I am not trying to tell you how to live your life or nothing, we are just trying to help out..geeze

Whatever, this one is all about The Vancouver Canucks and Ottawa Senators through the eyes of a Young Evan (I still don’t really know how old the guy is..) and a much younger and still more attractive Matty. Sound Drops all over the place folks, I had a lot of fun using them to tease and poke fun at my co-host.

Side Note: If you ever wanted to have a playful debate in a pub with a Canadian that has the potential to devolve into a haymaker-fest out in the parking lot outside of Moose Jaw Sask or Red Deer Alberta, this episode is essentially a blueprint to do just that!

Heard it here first folks, be well, if you do find yourself mired in such an encounter, Evan and I recommend pulling the back of their hoody over the back of their head, pinning them and their arms, then uppercuts (feeding them) until they are Spittin Chiclets.

Ya..Canada is fun at times, other times we simply riot because our team lost a game! **Vancouver Riots, Future episode for sure!

Be Well, Stay Safe, Talk to you all soon and aren’t we lucky?

Welcome to Episode 45 of Nooks and Crannies!

The Devil went Down to Georgia, and Paul has it on His Mind

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Howdy Folks, want a break from COVID talk? Well, this aint the Episode for you!

Neither are these ones:

EP 37: https://nooksandcrannies.podbean.com/e/37-cuban-corona-viruses-flowing-out-of-libertarian-fountainheads/

EM: https://nooksandcrannies.podbean.com/e/em-19-flavors-of-covid-with-heather-from-njrr/

Or

EP 39: https://nooksandcrannies.podbean.com/e/39-ethnographic-covidian-observations-or-how-we-learned-to-love-social-distancing/

Paul and Matt kicked the recording off with a bunch of solid Netflix recommendations, this will be released next alongside a segment Evan and I did all about our favorite NHL teams and players…So stay tuned for some lighter content next.

M+P start off by having a friend check in (like the Covidian Observations Episode), then Matty starts interrogating his friend as to why Georgia’s response has been so foolish and erratic. After some further discussion on that state, the fellers reluctantly start talking Trump and the Federal “response” and some of the wider National issues **armed militia’s and conspiracy theorists unholy alliance** then end on a lighter note talking food, cooking and how Paul is a very luck boy to be married to Amanda!

**PS. Congrats from Nooks and Crannies to Amanda for passing (with flying colours mind you) her Optometry Dispensing Exams. Paul explained to me both how challenging this process can be, how amazing you did (effortless I think is how he described it) and of course how proud he is of you! Good Job By You!!

Be Well Folks, Aren’t we Lucky and We will talk at you Real Soon! Much Love

Welcome to Episode 44 *Matt’s Favorite Number

of Nooks and Crannies!

Part 3 Zombies: Existentialist Zombies with Imperialistic Ambitions!

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome to the merciful conclusion of what turned out to be a 2 hr plus trip down the rabbit hole of Matty’s biggest phobia: ZOMBIES!

Part 1: Minisode: Historical Analysis of Why Matty is so Afraid of Zombies with Chris and Paul

Part 2: Zombie Movies: Racialized Others and Why they justifiably want to Eat our Brains!

We begin by discussing a game Chris has hardly played, yet is the most popular Zombie video game of all time and has spawned the most sequels, Resident Evil! After we make fun of the guy for this for a bit, we jump over to a movie that is firmly in Matty’s top 7 of all time: 28 Days Later.  

We totally glossed over Sean of the Dead, I heard it was great and funny, I only got 11 mins in and once I saw the first zombie (some girl-child) I was all like: Nope, Done, I’m out..and that was in front of Melly. What I am saying folks, I don’t like zombies…but I do L.O.V.E. Shoehorning in overly complicated academic terminology as a pathetic way for me to feel better than myself, at the expense of friends of course…Existentialism is the study of existence or consciousness (lived experience), Phenomenology is the study of perception and how that impacts experience. I am such a dick eh? <-Should not be a question…

Anyway, we bang around some ideas for a bit and then painfully wrap things up after a grueling 2hr long sesh.

Aren’t we Lucky? And I look forward to talking at Ya’all soon! And trashing America of course..be well folks.

Hear Matty Struggle Through a much more detailed an Nuanced discussion of the Avengers than I was clearly prepared for…https://playcomics.com/captain-america-and-the-avengers-with-matt-sanderson/

And How I enlisted the help of Chris’ much better half as a sorta, for no reason at all, retaliation where I try to boot him off his own show, I am pretty weird folks, especially with my friends: https://playcomics.com/captain-america-and-the-avengers-with-matt-sanderson/

Welcome to Episode 43 of Nooks and Crannies!

43 - My So Called Post-Concussed Life with Dr. Woolf

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Welcome to a reflexively fascinating episode of Nooks and Crannies

Matty had the privilege of chatting with Dr. Woolf (PhD Spiritual Psych, Musician, Father, super intelligent, oh ya, he has also sustained many Concussions! Capt. Concussion and Admiral Noggin Knock go down a reflexive journey recounting his concussions, how the medical field did or more often than not, did not recognize or validate his brain injuries, why its important to not get smoked in the face with a bow-staff whilst on Acid, how to properly camp in Mexico and why catching a 90lb speaker with your face is the wrong approach!

At times funny, mostly morbidly fascinating, and throughout it was thought provoking, honest and revealing. Oh, this is part 1 of 2 and we will be having Dr. Woolf on again and again, wait till you hear his super professional sounding Radio Voice!

At the end we play ourselves out with the amazingly melodic Persephone from Doc Woolf music.
