Diet Soap Podcast #183: Hegel’s Serenity


There is no guest this week except for my son Benjamin. He and I discuss the Joss Whedon 2005 film Serenity and the television series Firefly that spawned it through the context of Hegel’s dialectic.

It’s Wednesday, June 12th, 2013 and I’m Douglas Lain the host of the podcast.

You may have noticed that my Kickstarter project to fund a book and podcast tour in September is underway. The project is just one week in, and largely due to a large pledge from Andy M, I’m already over 40% toward the goal. At present there are 19 backers of the Think the Impossible tour. Thanks to Thom K, Thomas A, Trent W, MK Hobson, Shane S, Ashley F, Andy M, Derek D, Bradley C, Filippo V, James M, Sarah C, Randy S, Bob B, Jody, Will S, McKenzie Wark, Robert K, and Cameron Pierce.

If you like Diet Soap pledging to the Think the Impossible tour is a great way to support it.

In related news I’ve started a serialized audio version of my upcoming novel Billy Moon. It’s a freebie that I’m giving away through the Kickstarter campaign, and to I’ll post a link to the first chapter in this week’s show notes.

Again, this week’s podcast is about Hegel and the tv show Firefly. Ben was a good sport to participate. You can hear that he’s got a bit of cold but he just put his head down and powered through. The music you’re listening to right now is from the television show Firefly, it’s the theme for River’s perception, but in just a moment you’ll be listening to Ben and I discuss Hegel’s Serenity.

Remarkable issues here. I am very happy to peer your article.
Thanks a lot and I am having a look ahead to touch you.
