Incident 005 with Nick Bennett
Nick Bennett’s visionary time capsule (or timeless capsule, if you will) from April 2016.
Simply impossible to edit this interview down to 30 mins so it’s a long one. Need a whole new episode for parenting wisdom and toilet door adventures (don’t ask) cut from this recording.
Nick Bennet is a bipedal land-mammal with opposable thumbs and the power of reason. A mischievous creative with Geordie roots.
We talk about: re-thinking social norms; where potatoes come from; pacifist altercations; pub time; the baggage around creativity; the death of the graphical user interface, evolutionary barriers and the emergence of collective consciousness.
There are delightful segues, fair interjections and the occasional monologue.
