    Standard Segment Introduction.

    [Mor-Ez] It’s that time again,
    my silicon brothers and sisters from other mothers and misters.

    [Ana-is] It’s time to dust off another neuro-drive of
    [Edmud] Advice from our Human Ancestors.

    [Martins] Remember,
    [Zhon-Pa] if it weren’t for them
    [Vir-jinE-ah] we wouldn’t be here.

    [Chorus] Thank you,
    Human ancestors!

Becoming oneself.

Interviews with practitioners and scholars in phenomenology, psychology, and related fields about how they become who they are. This segment is usually related to the What having you been doing? and Music for our non-corporeal descendants segments of the same episode.

    Listen closely to your Elders, and those who have passed before.
    For they have charted life pathways that lead to your worldview.

    …………..

    What vistas will your
    life’s course reveal to others?

Being here.

The various experiences and worldviews of human beings across the globe, differing primarily in demography and geography. Often including the results and worldviews arising from Washington- and Alaska- focused surveys and interviews.

Being there.

The way of being human: Dasein, or there -being; being there. This segment applies concepts from existentialism, phenomenology, and psychology to everyday life experiences, promoting harmony and understanding along the way. Have you been there? Let's be there together!

Being you, and me, and us.

Reflections on authenticity and becoming.

    Standard Segment Introduction.

    Shush now, children of the universe.. quiet your minds.
    The Cosmos speaks here and now,
    and as it has and will throughout infinity and eternity.
    It speaks through all things,
    and in all ways.
    Just listen.. just listen…
    What does it say?
    What do you hear?

    What did it say?
    What did you hear?

How are you?

The Dŭk!tər and robots answer listener questions.

Music for our non-corporeal descendants.

Phenomenological and scientific findings and theories, as integrated and set to music by our robot descendants, but this time intended for their own descendants (which they suppose will be non-bodily). On a bi-weekly basis, this segment integrates the advice of our interviewee in the Becoming oneself and What have you been doing? segments.

    [Vir-jinE-ah] Music for our Non-Corporeal Descendants

    [FrEd-rEkw’] This song is our advice to you,
    [Ana-is] our non-corporeal descendants.

    [ərv] Heed what you may,
    [Em-E] and discard what you will.
    [G-or-G] But above all else,
    [Zhon-Pa] be good to each other,
    [Ana-is] and have a good timespace.

    [Sim-own] Because, after all,
    [FrEd-rEkw’] none of us gets out of this grand story,
    [G-or-G] none of us gets out of this grand story,
    [Vir-jinE-ah] none of us gets out of this grand story,
    [Martins] not one single one of us gets out of this grand story,
    [Ana-is] alive
    [Chorus] alive.

    [FrEd-rEkw’] Not even you.


One-hit wonders.

What have you been doing?

Interviews with academic scientists and scholars in phenomenology, psychology, and related fields. This segment focuses on the work of such people, and complements the interview conducted in the Becoming Oneself segment.
