Is all culture based in appropriation? What do Canadians really think of the United States? And what do we call people who live in “America” anyway?
Podcasting from a recording studio eerily reminiscent of our Texas Tech days, Stephen met up with our favorite synesthete Shawn Brackett at the University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada (eh!) to tackle these questions and more while Stephen was passing through on his Vision Quest. Kevin elected not to wear pants (again), and it went great.
We hope you enjoy this thoroughly academic’ed show, y’all! If you feel so inclined, leave us a comment with your preferred English-language demonym for people-who-live-in-the-United-States-of-America.
And if you like listening to BF, would you help us out on Patreon? Even at a buck a show you’ll be doing us quite a flavor. And for a little more we’ll give you exclusive stuff like lossless audio tracks and hilarious sound bite collections. As Simon says, “It’s a song at twice the price”
