In another late podcast, I found myself mired in an emotional fog of frustration from a very weird week. On top of that, the article of Liam Neeson came out and the ramifications and debate surrounding his actions nearly forty years ago kicked me into such irritation that I felt it worth talking about. Still dealing with the bullshit I talked about on the last episode, i.e. the challenges of being a mediocre creative, is mostly why this episode is so late, so I will have this and two others within a couple days. I think Neeson’s story is a teachable moment and something real and human that’s been twisted. My usual problems with internet journalism and social media immediacy come up again, and I tell a story from just five-and-a-half years ago in my own life. Enjoy.
Also, I just learned in posting articles for this, that Liam’s nephew died just weeks ago. My condolences.
