The Absurd Arena – Useful Idiots Discussion Board Week of 11.28
For the Useful Idiots who think they can talk back to a podcast.
Hey Useful Idiots,
After a chaotic month of midterm election fever, weird 2024 kickoffs, and Thanksgiving (somehow just as stressful?), it seems this week we finally have a moment to breathe, watch the snow fall from a solitary perch, listen to music, return to the normalcy of work. Or, perhaps, we’ve only found the eye of the hurricane.
But before the week brings us into December, dragging the frenzy of runoffs, holidays, and government shutdowns back into our faces, the soft November snow turning to icy sleet – rapping at the window, trying to break in – let’s take this moment for ourselves.
Whether that means unplugging for a bit, getting back to your book, or catching up on the two-hour Norm Finkelstein interview, all we can say is:
We want to hear your thoughts on the nonsense. But remember, this is the absurd arena, which means you can talk about anything you want: 2024 predictions, the Georgia runoff, the World Cup, your book, that album, the mean things those neighborhood kids say to you.
As usual, the best comments will be read on the show. Here’s the starter prompt:
What do you do to escape the nonsense? Is being “informed” actually important, or does it merely lend importance to the people in charge? What questions do you have for Aaron and Katie?
