I’ve known vance since 2012 when we crossed paths at a startup weekend here in st.louis. we are so different that we’re almost identical. we’ve been throwing lit matches into the bog of culture for a long time now, and I think you will find it a valuable source of productive entropy to subscribe to the vance crow podcast.
the vance crowe podcast
the podcast is worth your time. vance has a wide variety of people that speak to different topics. ag is heavily represented, which is a fascinating point of departure for conversation, that keeps the topics rooted in some form of reality, if you’ll permit a terrible pun.
for instance, vance’s most recent conversation with lee cronin. they range across a wide variety of topics, from chemistry, current cultural trends and academics, alternate explanations of time, robots, and the social dynamics of disagreeable people.
an interesting side note: during their conversation vance and lee talked about stephen wolfram as an example of someone with heterodox ideas. vance told of a friend who bought a copy of “a new kind of science” which had a note in it. indeed, I am that person. the note was actually an article which had been torn out of a journal. I display this excerpt for fair-use purposes only:
if you want the rest of the article, you’ll have to fork over a pile of money to the people who originally printed it. or ask someone who has a copy to share.
