Legendary editor Russ Kick returns to the DisinfoCast to discuss his new collection Death Poems, an anthology of verse both modern and classic dedicated to all aspects of death: Funerals, the death penalty, serial killings, the Underworld and more. Funny, sad, atheistic, spiritual, mythic, wise and morbid, this is the perfect collection for anyone who needs a little “memento mori”.

Additional subjects discussed: Near-death experiences, morbid thoughts, the afterlife or lack thereof, “the 357 test”, the role of art, post-modernism and more.

I spring an entirely unplanned question on fighting philosopher Daniele Bolelli (“On the Warrior’s Path”, “50 Things You’re Not Supposed to Know: Religion”): How can we all strive toward not being assholes? What develops is an interesting conversation on empathy, jealousy, violence, and the philosophical nature of good and evil.

Zero, Jonah and D are members of the New York Initiative, a group of ordinary people dedicated to extraordinary change through community activism, education and intervention. The NYI was one of several groups of “real-life superheroes” featured in the HBO documentary “Superheroes”, but they prefer to be labeled – if at all – as “Extreme Altruists”. Note: There was a little echo in this recording. Efforts have been made to remove it, but some still lingers.

I Was a Guest On the ‘Intellectual Gentlemen’s Club’ Podcast

Sometimes I’m lucky enough to be a guest on other people’s podcasts. I’ve done several of them in the past year or so, and I’m always flattered that anyone is interested in hearing what I’ve got to say. I don’t normally mention them here at Disinfo because I want to avoid even the very whiff of personal promotion, but with so many interviews with me starting to pile up out there in the aether I thought it might be time to fill you in on them here and there.

Feel free to completely disregard this post, but if you’re interested in hearing an interview with me then you would do well with this my recent appearance on the “Intellectual Gentlemen’s Club” podcast. Apparently they were willing to let the fact that I’m neither an intellectual nor gentleman slide in this one case…
