Sofia and I decided to make this the final podcast of the 2010 season. With the work involved in the publication of my upcoming book, the continued recording of the full-length album, and with all of the other stuff going on in our “real lives” right now, we thought it would make sense to take a short break from the podcast. So check back on February 4th, 2011 for the start of a new season. Better yet, visit the podcast page and enter your email address to be alerted when the next show comes out.
We end the season with what is, perhaps surprisingly, a very important topic. This is the season of holidays and the season of tradition. In our search for an authentic life, each of us has to come to terms with what tradition means to us…which traditions to honor and which to discard. Tradition, in our lives, goes beyond a holiday here and there. Tradition is, indeed, the force that holds cultures and societies together. When valued and honored properly, tradition is also a force that helps us collectively push back against corporate exploitation. Without tradition, we are merely lonely, isolated consumers.
