Ear Shows for Everyone

Hey Earthlings,

If you know anything about me, you know that I've been on a podcast kick since about the time 'podcast' was coined as a term. In that time, various podcasts have come onto and fallen off my regular rotation. I used to be pretty thick with science and tech podcasts. Some of those have fallen off my regular rotation, and new ones have come on. This weekend I was enjoying the new-to-me tech-n-talk SMR Podcast, an interview-style show called People I Mostly Admire, and an EV-enthusiast show called Kilowatt. So far I'm liking what I'm hearing.

Any podcasts you come back to time and again?

Ambiguous Knight

Howdy Earthlings!

So we saw the Green Knight this weekend at the theater. The thing about seeing this movie is that you should probably go in with the advice "embrace ambiguity" echoing in your ears (as Batgirl had just told me). That way, over the subsequent few days as you try to make sense of the movie with your partner, while arguing the fine points of what's Arthurian "canon" and what's folderal, you're able to deepen your appreciation of the film. I suspect we'll watch it again, if not soon, at least when it comes to streaming.

Did you do anything that challenged you lately that you then came to appreciate later?
