We went to PodCon 2! We saw some live podcasts, went to some workshops on how to make podcasts, and met other podcast fans. And we recorded a live episode of The Scene Of The Scene about PodCon at PodCon! We have said the syllable “pod” too much.
(Small, meaningless correction: Sessions were an hour long, not 90 minutes.)
We saw The Price of Everything (Nathaniel Kahn, 2018), a documentary about the art world. It focuses on some of the artists, collectors, gallerists, historians, and especially the people at the auction houses who make the art world the money-crazed scene it is (or is understood to be) today.
We went and saw a live recording of Connected, a podcast about Apple products. Then we headed to a nearby bar to record our thoughts about the show (and about podcasts, live podcasts, and Apple products).
After recording, Chris (who has been a fan of Connected for a while) and Joy (who is new to the show) had a few drinks and discussed Pippin (among many other things). We probably should have kept the tape running.
Opera season at the Canadian Opera Company continues with their production of Rufus Wainwright’s Hadrian. It’s the tale of Roman emperor Hadrian, whose lover Antinous drowned when he was still young and beautiful. Hadrian spent the rest of his life mourning the loss.
