Worst Enterview Ever

I had a very awkward experience recently. I was invited as a special guest on one of India’s most popular podcasts. The problem was, I don’t speak Hindi. And the host doesn’t speak English. So I had to rely on my interpreter, but unfortunately she couldn’t be trusted.

I’m not the type to pick fights with other podcasters, but sometimes you have to speak up when they act like this. I don’t blame my interpreter Priya too much. She tried to soften what the host was saying, instead of translating it word for word. I get that. Some words can hurt the ego.

Season 7 later on this year. I know you’ve been waiting for a long time, but I promise it will be worth it. I put a lot of care and creativity into my writing and production, so thank you for your patience and support. While you wait, you can enjoy my nocturnal podcast, Experimental Stories. This is a unique podcast that I created for night owls like you. It’s full of surprises and mysteries that will keep you company in the dark.

All of the incridible Indian music for this episode is from Epidemic Sound.

Fruit Fly Existence

Imagine if your lifespan was the length of a Fruit Fly?

Special Episode

The average human lifespan is 80 years. God has given us time to grow and develop not just physically but spiritually.

However, many of us waste those precious years in pursuit of meaningless things. We attach ourselves to immediate gratifications and hitch our wagons on a star.

80 years is fleeting, if your young you may think otherwise. The older you grow the more precious is time.

If your life was reduced from 80 years to a few days how different would you live?

Season two is arriving later this year. In the meantime please tell a friend about this show. Also, you can keep in touch with me on Twitter (X) @Experimentalstories.

I’m also the host of Welcome To Earth Stories, season 7 is also arriving later on this year.

More Famous Than Taylor Swift

My new year’s resolution is to become more famous than Taylor Swift.

Why should Taylor hog the spotlight and leave us mere mortals in the cold?Why did Time Magazine anoint her as the person of the year?

Special Bonus Episode

This episode establishes my case of why this show, and your truly, needs to be more famous than Taylor.

I know some diehard Swifties out there may disagree and stop listening to this podcast. This is a chance I’m willing to take to tell you the truth.

Brand new season is launching later on this year. To keep in touch and to read all my tweets you can reach me on twitter @poeticearthling.

Fat Man, Red Suit

What does a few Canadians, a couple of Swedes, a couple of Hungarians, one obnoxious American, and one cute Korean girl have in common? They’re all trapped on a plane at the edge of the North Pole.

Learning To Fly

If we’re not careful we can mold and shape our children into our carbon copy.

Season 1, Episode 10

One of the biggest lessons of parenthood is to allow your child to spread his wings. We all want to see our children flourish and go beyond the limits. Every well adjusted parent wants their child to be better than them, however there’s pressure applied by some parents to shape their child into another version of themselves.

This episode deals with my own struggles as a father and some unrelated stories to close this season.

Backward Numbers

Technological achievement is a poor replacement for intimacy.

Season 1, Episode 9

A few years ago I didn’t know anything about computers, and I wasn’t into slick cadets, except for a handheld electronic dictionary.

Because the writing world moved to social media I reluctantly followed. Established authors said the only way to make it as a writer is to embrace Facebook and similar sites.

At that time I despised the “online world” and deemed it as a drag on the soul and a waste of time. All of these likes, hearts, follower count and retweets was creating anxiety issues.

Sometimes I still despise it and view social media as a time suck.
There I am at 2 in the morning scrolling through twitter, or should I say brainlessly scrolling through twitter trying to find something to perk my interest.

Minutes turn into hours as I beat myself up for not getting anything done.

That’s bad, but that’s not the worst part.
Quality time with my wife is also compromised.
I know, that’s pretty awful.

Things are better now, not perfect but a huge improvement.
I’m practicing more self control and learning I don’t need to be “on” all the time.
It’s not like thousands of people are waiting breathlessly for my next post.

A simple thing as putting down the phone and staring in her eyes goes a long way. This action builds intimacy.

Slinky Universe

Is freewill only a figment of one’s imagination?

Season 1, Episode 8

Are you old enough to remember the slinky, this is a popular spring like toy accidentally created by Richard James in 1943.

Even if you didn’t play with a slinky your probably familiar with the commercial.

Wait a moment, you’ve seen the commercial right?
If not, pause what you’re reading, go to YouTube and type it in.

Are you back?

The slinky is comprised of metal coils, each coil affects the other as it climbs down the stairs.
It’s future moves depends on the previous.

We inhabit a Slinky Universe where each action is determined by the former.
This notion may eradicate the concept of free will.

Without free will or autonomy we can blame everything on the past. We could say society made me this way for good or bad and my future actions are written by events outside of my control.

Isn’t that the problem today, people not taking ownership of their mess and pointing the finger at someone else.
English poet, John Donne, most quotable line rings through,
“No man is an island.”

John Donne was right we are all interconnected, whatever you do will affect me to a greater or lesser extent since we all occupy this planet.

But I don’t believe this eliminates free will, however it may reduce it.

Resistance Is Futile

Is the advent of AI our long awaited Saviour, or is it the birth of Skynet

Earlier this year I was invited to the Write Hive panel about AI in book publishing. Our conversation went beyond publishing to a more philosophical musing about where this technology is heading.

Many of my stories revolve around AI, a good example is Escape From Wokeville, go back and give it a listen.

I’m currently writing season 7, please reach out to me on Twitter(X) @poeticearthling.
