Poetics of Meme-ifying the Matrix

James McCrae is an author, poet, speaker, podcaster, and meme-artist based in Austin, Texas. In this episode, we talk about the spiritual education of woods-wandering in childhood, the religious landscape of James's Minnesota upbringing, and how he found himself jobless on a small Carribean island and the lead-up to his writing of Sh*t Your Ego Says.  James opens up about his creative process, and his work in poetry using digital media as both inspiration and material. James McCrae's work has a unique way of sitting firmly within the human experience while activating higher-level thinking in a way that is both relatable and challenging to the lower angels of our nature.  Find James McCrae on Instagram @wordsarevibrations and his website www.jamesmccrae.com to buy his books, Sh*t Your Ego Says, and How to Laugh in Ironic Amusement During Your Existential Crisis. + Follow Phenomenon Baby on Instagram @phenomenon.baby for podcast news and updates, and extra mood-enhancing content from Shannon.
