We’ve all had a discussion or an argument about popular culture. Sometimes it happens on Facebook, Tumblr or Twitter. Maybe it was in a literature, history, philosophy or psychology class in college. Perhaps it was at the local comic book shop. Or maybe it was at a bar and you ended up stabbing someone with a bottle or bludgeoning them with a pool cue. All of these discussions are exactly the same. The tenured professor at an academic conference deconstructing Batman through a Derrida lens i ...
 
The entire foundation which this country has been founded upon is very quickly being eroded. Basic laws of economics are being discarded for the benefit of a select few.

The podcast focuses on current politics seen in the context of our nation’s history and the persona ...
 
This podcast series explores the Gospel of Matthew as literature, as a story. I make the argument that the story is one of a nonviolent revolutionary peasant leader named Jesus or Joshua (depending on whether you transliterate from the Greek or the Hebrew). The story, therefore, is sociopolitically subversive. Not only is the story subversive in its content, it is also subversive in its form. It parodies an ancient genre of literature common among the upper classes.I will make the argument t ...

“My own background in physics has taught me wonder. As a poet, we deal mostly in metaphors and a metaphor says that this is that - that's what equations do too. Equations say that mass is energy.
