35 - God is a Gamer

March 2, 2020

We are #blessed to talk with Jeremy Antley (@jsantley on twitter) to discuss gossip and rumor among imperial-era Russian peasants, and how rumor functions as power and as play. We also celebrate some monkey business down under.

Books referenced by Jeremy: Society Must Be Defended by Michel Foucault, The Play of the World by James S. Hans, and Gossip by Patricia Meyer Spacks.
