Well, my fellow earthlings: The rocket ship is landing. The grand finale of Conversation Oblique Season 4 is here and our lovably nauseous hosts cap off the season with one of their most irrelevant & accomplished conversations yet. Sky & Estevan spend this precious half-hour together discussing Sky growing up in the same house the telephone was created, primal scream therapy, emoji’s that are a disguised cry for help, when moving meditation meets traditional talk psychotherapy, and finally a ghastly Halloween omen that Sky once experienced. Is it the end? Shortly after recording this episode the Conversation Oblique boys have found, to both gripping ecstasy AND despair, a black curtain of time falling, revealing a mysterious door that is the entrance to another spiraling vortex. Will they open it? Stay tuned.

You’re Playing Pretend Whether You Realize It Or Not
Why, hello! Behold another episode of the podcast critics (50 years from now) are hailing as the "tumbleweed of 21st Century thought rolling through the empty landscapes of America's consciousness". Sky & Estevan return as your dutiful hosts to explore another round of baffling concepts such as: vibrators with personalities, upholding rituals in a ritual-less society, Halloween as a super chill mob shake down, some Netflix movie Sky watched called "Clown", and the fact that, whether you're aware of it or not, the whole world IS a stage and no it doesn't matter if God left his seat for popcorn hours ago. Enjoy!

American’s Are Bullies And Their Children Are Drunk Off Candy
Wow.. do these two ever get sick of each other? Sky Cooper & Estevan Muñoz have one of their most clear-headed conversations in the history of the podcast yet. Exotica, Pygmies, fringe creatives, cultural assimilators, underdogs, self-sabotage, groupies from the 80s, extortion, cancel culture, roads to redemption, social brownie points, strong communities, voting and finally America’s perverted relationship with entertainment are all touched over with the paint brush that is the shared consciousness of Sky & Estevan. Relax, take a bong hit of coffee, and enjoy one of their finest moments together.

Here we go, again. Again.

Press play and go on a magic carpet ride of charmingly irrelevant conversation!

THE GREAT BLOCKCHAIN IN THE SKY
An unusual episode of Conversation Oblique indeed. Running against the current of their typically zigzagging discourse, episode 5 finds Sky Cooper and Estevan Muñoz shaping their time together around a single topic. Sky expounds upon his wacky idea of putting the entire internet on a block chain as a means of fighting fake news. Estevan, accustomed to responding to the world in an entirely blip fashion (not to different than a pinball bouncing from one shiny corner to the next), clumsily but heroically tries to make sense of this convoluted yet detailed proposal. Have a sip of coffee and explore this uncharted realm of Convo Oblique with us!

Enjoy the monday commute with these two chatterboxes.

Tap your feet to the rhythm of this purposefully scattered episode of Conversation Oblique. In traditional fashion, these two hopeless romantics dash through a discourse of stunning variety, flying through topics of cold showers, stimulants, astral projection as the first Facebook, guarded receptivity as an artist, the dangers of outsourcing your imagination and the idea that language may have gone too far!

YOUR LIFE, COOKED
Conversation Oblique enters their 4th Season on the backs of camels made from concepts across the vast desert of the charming host's collective curiosity. Sky Cooper & Estevan Munoz openly ponder polyamory, the process of squeezing our romantic relationships through new technology platforms such as social media, and wether or not life for either of them is truly, really, undeniably cooking.

Electricity is a Demon
Are the most potent artists the ones metaphorically tripping all the time? Is the application of electricity a long-term elaborate scheme created by a demon to lure humanity into a prison? Is self-hatred a cop-out? Is the lesson of death to experience vitality fully? Catch these questions and some more off-hand banter by the Conversation Oblique boyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s in a new episode for your Monday!

As 2018 marches on with unstoppable trajectory, so does the purposefully aimless dialog between Sky Cooper and Estevan Munoz.

Being Authentic Changes the World
In one of their most inspiring talks recorded, Sky unintentionally lectures Estevan on how living a healthy, balanced, and honest life is the most positive contribution you can give back to society. DONÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢T GIVE IN TO DESPAIR. THE UNIVERSE NEEDS YOUR CONSTRUCTIVE ENERGY!

The Messianic Impulse
Conversation Oblique returns for another Mundane Monday as we find the two amicably befuddled hosts Sky and Estevan tackling the question on if there is a biological impulse for humanity to seek a Messiah, and what function does that impulse serve society. From Charles Manson to Michael Jackson, it seems as if humans need a higher ideal or symbol to project their aspirations and fantasies on to help navigate their lives, but is this a necessary way to live? As always, the answers are as a thick as the fog that permanently stains EstevanÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s brain, and SkyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s inherently skeptical nature never lets one answer be ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œthe One.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â Join us this Monday as we ponder subjects way beyond our formal education but well within what keeps these two gentlemen up at night.

Emoji me to Death..
Welcome to a deep cut in Season 3 of Conversation Oblique, the relatively arbitrary outlet for the charmingly strange friendship of Sky Cooper & Estevan Munoz. This week the boys discuss pet owners projecting their psyches onto their pets, the under appreciated intimacy of apps like FaceTime, the emotional perversion of call centers, the living organism of the Corporation, the Unseen World that humanity self-perpetuates because we need something to surrender to, the fact that God is more than likely an alcoholic, and the possibility of Estevan being addicted to despair. Enjoy!

Life is complicated but at least you have the Conversation Oblique boiz breaking this reality down for you.
