Living in a Bubble World (Episode 26)
Living in a Bubble World This episode starts off light and then drills into experiential aspects of the three weeks between the fast of the 17th of the month Tammuz and the fast of the 9th of the month of Av. We discuss that summertime sadness, living in a bubble, preppers (who think they'll make it when the whole system goes down), and what difference your awareness makes. We talk Kohelet (Ecclesiastes), and Tzvi brings out the difference between wisdom and Torah. Tzvi talks about how people are talking about "Off the Derekh" kids, a big assumption in the yeshiva system, and the big problem in Holy Madness - The Show. His "beautiful sad music" faces off against Meir-Simchah's "emo parody" (there's no actual music in the episode, so don't hesitate to listen to it during the nine days). We introduce Eicha (Lamentations), which we'll be reading shortly. Meir-Simchah asks what are the big breakdowns today, and we wind up talking about what gives us hope. If you want to take a short but deep dive into Tisha B'Av, check out this recent bit of Extra Madness, a talk that Meir-Simchah gave at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York, https://soundcloud.com/holymadnesstheshow/extra-madness-meir-simchah-on-tisha-bav-at-omega-institute-5777.

Extra Madness: Meir-Simchah on Tisha BAv at Omega Institute (5777)
This is a mind-blowing, impromptu talk on Tisha B'Av, the day the Temple was destroyed. It was given by Meir-Simchah at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York, 2017. All the main ideas come from Meir-Simchah's rabbi (a fact noted before the recording started), who has some of his works available here http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/ravmatis. Sorry about the audio quality - it was impromptu.
