Ah...the smell of a new book. There’s thrill and excitement and anticipation in that intoxicating ink and paper smell. Laurie Brown claims she is “a freak about post-it notes - whenever I see an idea that intrigues me, a fact that astounds me, or a beautiful question that I want to spend more time thinking about, I slam a post-it note on the page with a scrawl about what delighted me.” A physical representation of her own curiosity.
In the latest episode of Pondercast, Laurie explores both curiosity and books, but mostly the life force that is curiosity. It is something that needs nurturing and protection because it is vulnerable.
Recently, Killbeat Music partnered with the team at Pondercast to bring you Ponderbeat, a series of special episodes featuring selections curated by Brown from some of Killbeat’s latest releases. The second episode of Ponderbeat is live now, featuring music from Dan Mangan, Great Lake Swimmers, Begonia, Kaia Kater, and more.
