Listeners - please know that we are not exaggerating when we tell you that this is one of the best 3/4ths of an episode we've ever released. This episode is full thoughtful insights into our relationship to nature as creators, game players, and humans in general. But, it is the nature of the scorpion to sting - and that is exactly what Greg does to the last 1/4th of this episode. This is 'Nature.' Please enjoy.
In this episode - Tess reflects on the colonial mindset toward nature reflected in media. Giovanni probes the limits of nature as a digital construct. David explores the visual beauty of nature and briefly ponders the concept of the sublime. Greg asks, "why isn't Mario taller?"
