A Podcast of Things in General (Thomas Carlyle’s Sartor Resartus + Mt. Dew Flaming Hot)
Back at full strength, the boys discuss the first entry of the final cycle of the season, "Mirth" -- Friedrich's selection of Thomas Carlyle's Sartor Resartus. They discuss the book's strange format as a work that blends fiction and pseudo-philosophy, and Carlyle's unique brand of satire. They also talk about clothes, about German idealism and Romanticism, and who is the podcast's resident dandy.
Then, in a new episode of PoMoFooFac, the boys try the strange elixir known as Mountain Dew Flaming Hot. Will Karl's Kleen Kanteen preserve any semblance of bubblage? Will Friedrich and Søren design a 90s scrolling platformer game starring the adorable, finger glove wearing Dew Spark? Listen on to find out!
