Something Like #23: The Texture of Change w/ Bitsy Knox

12 November 2020

Sometimes we can feel change coming, fermenting inside of us. Sometimes we know the texture, the feel of that change, before we know its shape. This is an episode dedicated to pawing the burlap and stroking the velvet of what is to come. We’ll look at potential, intention, and drudgery in the pursuit of what is nascent and waiting to bubble forth, ready to drink and produce newness. This episode takes its cues from Sally Potter’s 1993 film adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s Orlando, with a soundtrack by David Motion, Jimmy Sommerville, and Potter herself.

  • As always, jingle music is courtesy of Roger 3000
  • The music under my voice this week is from Laurie Spiegel’s “The Expanding Universe”
  • I read passages from Octavia Butler’s “Parable of the Talents” and Madeline Miller’s “Circe” that you should definitely seek out from your local bookseller or borrow from a friend.
