I had another chat with Vicki Amorose, the author of Art-Write. In this episode, we talk about propaganda and power in art.


If you want to learn more about memes and about whether or not we’re actually capable of free thought, read Susan Blackmore’s The Meme Machine. The blog post of mine that Vicki refers to at the beginning of the episode is this one, and the first episode of Blue Lobster is here.
