Anger seems to be the emotion of the moment. It doesn’t take more than a sidelong glance at the news to get the mad motor humming. How are you handling it? This episode of Laurie Brown’s Pondercast, Episode 18 : Welcome To The Dark Rages, is about the kind of anger you feel boiling up from your stomach when you read the news. This is good anger.
Anger can be an incredibly corrosive thing - and it has damaged many of us in terrible ways. The episode doesn’t venture into that kind of anger, that’s for another time. Here Brown addresses the rage we are feeling at the way we are treating each other. Jailed asylum seekers, children separated from parents, education budgets slashed, acts of racism and misogyny - you know, the news.
Pondercast is for explorers – it guides you to the clouds for a mind-bending view. Laurie Brown (formerly of CBC’s The Signal) sparks some new thoughts as the soundscapes of Joshua Van Tassel help you ponder the night, being human, and, of course, music.
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. Listen to the first Ponderbeat Episode here.
