From Bananas and strippers to Free Will and Determinism
Show Notes
Today my friend Chase Abendschein and I talk about the poem The Road Not Taken, which is one of those poems that people who know a little bit about poetry love to school others on. "ACTUALLY that poems is about..." Chase is a salesmen, like a super salesman. He works in global enterprise sales, meaning he sells to major major corporations. But he loves this poem and he enjoys poetry. He's not trained in it, as I'm not trained in it. So we go off on some ridiculous tangents that I hope you'll enjoy. The Highlights Belly Scratchers Billy Goats, Beers, and kissing babes at the tops of mountains Free will and Determinism Chris Farley and Patrick Stewart (?) on SNL Anton Chigurh and Twoface from "No Country For Old Men," and "The Dark Knight" Bananas and strippers The narrative voice of Robert Frost The life choices we make and how to feel good about them Bill Bradley and Bill Braskey (SNL again...) And throughout we are conversing with the verse by Robert Frost. Lots of fun and ridiculousness peppered with deep insights about an iconic poem. Enjoy!
