Gabe Hudson interviews the writer about his beloved newsletter, growing our capacity for curiosity and wonder, and Kurt Vonnegut
It happened again! I took the dog for a walk and took Kurt Vonnegut Radio along too. I loved hearing about Mike's writing. I think my dog, Mortimer, loved hearing about Mike too. Our walk took us on a mile loop around our house -- an area I think I know well, but maybe I don't know at all because, to be honest, I haven't really looked into my neighborhood with as much care and wonder as Mike brings to his subjects. Maybe someday I'll remedy that. But for now, it was a great listen and a great walk, and that's good enough. Thank you for this Mike and Gabe!
I really like the format of calling out a few quotes, and then you can listen to the whole thing if you want.
Mike (hi Mike!) does a great job of enlisting the reader in reexamining "normal" phenomena, kind of in the same vein as Feynman or Carl Sagan. "Substack Sagan?"
Thanks for a great, quick, informative read.
Mike! 😭 Humbled by this. Thank you for the kind words.
