UPDATE: Our Undoing Radio is now available in iTunes, Spotify and Player.FM.
Last night, like a reverse thief in the night, like Santa Claus, I quietly launched a new podcast that I will now stop being quiet about. It is called Our Undoing Radio. It will soon be available in iTunes, Spotify, Youtube, and wherever else one attains podcasts, but you can listen to the intro episode below and subscribe right now through Podbean.
And actually, you don’t even have to wait for this to unfold through the weeks. If you become a member at www.ourundoing.com you can binge the entire first season right now!
If you’re not a member of Our Undoing and don’t plan on being one anytime soon, the podcast will unfold weekly, with new episodes every Tuesday. It is absolutely free and always commercial free, except for the occasional plug for www.ourundoing.com.
So what is it? Seems like I should have led with that. Our Undoing Radio is a seasonal show (first season is 10 episodes) and will evolve into different styles of show as necessary. This first season is called Angry In The Timeline. It consists of me sharing tales of woe from my life that I then deconstruct, so that I am no longer comprised of those feelings, and there is one less angry person walking amongst us. I must warn you that this is stark and honest. It can be brutal at times. But it’s not for you to feel badly about or think how brave I am for sharing this–whatever the reaction. It’s for you to relate to, however you can, in your own life. It is for you to see what deconstructing the self takes and means, and to do it as you’re listening. It’s time to stop looking out there at the crazy, angry world, and realize our role. It’s time to understand ourselves so thoroughly that a spontaneous transformation takes place within-and-as us.
Human nature as we currently define it means we can only ever be the least neurotic amongst us. We are told we are always partial people on our best, most self-actualized day. But what happens when instead of self-actualizing we self-negate? What happens when we see ourselves so clearly that we become see-through?
What happens when we are so honest with ourselves, the self comes undone?
