Episode 12: Midget Wrestling in Detroit, Manliness, FOCUS, Post-Modernism
Midget Wrestling: It was a great time. Twisted? Naw, just fun. Don’t deprive midgets of their agency, and you can’t judge someone else’s sense of humor as long as it’s not unkind.
Detroit: Its rise from the ashes continues, but it’s still a gritty place and rings “authentic.” Contrast that with downtown Chicago.
Lightning Segments: All about The Manly Handbook, an absurd little book from the early 1980s that cracks me up to this day.
FOCUS: The Fellowship of Catholic University Students is doing marvelous work, as evidenced by my first-hand experience with the organization. :
Post-Modernism: Is this the smoke of Satan that Pope Paul VI talked about? I guess I need to figure it out.
Theme song: Skinnin’ Lynyrd by Greg Scheske, a bespoke expert. Email him here: firstname.lastname@example.org
