We start things off with a conversation about languages. After that, we go over the books we’ve read this past year and what we plan on reading in 2022. Then we talk about our writing goals for the upcoming year, and boy are they lofty! 

There’s also a discussion about the future of DPW, this podcast, and the possibility of starting new podcasts. 

IRC #12: Oblivion Part Three Drunken Pen Writing Podcast

Today's episode discusses two more stories in Oblivion: Stories by David Foster Wallace. First, we read and discuss his deeply disturbing flash fiction story, Incarnation of Burned Children. This one comes with a trigger warning as the imagery and subject matter are incredibly traumatic.  The second story, Another Pioneer, offers a meditation on storytelling, knowledge, self-consciousness, societal evolution, and societal destruction. We cover this complex story and touch upon post-modernism, AI, the burden of knowledge, the breakdown of society, and many, many other things.  This might just be our favorite episode of this series!
