Part 2 of my conversation with guest Dave Brigham about our society's neglect for history. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from The Hush Now, Low, Varsity Drag and The Linus Pauling Quartet.

Show notes:

- Recorded at the BrigHAAAAM Estates

- Dave's doing a reading of one of his short stories on Dec. 11 in Arlington, MA

- Check out Dave's photo blog, The Backside of America

- Kids don't get our references anymore

- Brigham: "Too damn much of everything"

- Reality TV is ubiquitous

- Pop culture ignorance

- Brigham: Even a Luddite like me buys digital music

- Knowledge of older bands is limited now

- Talking to kids about history and current events

- Don't let our kids watch TV newscasts

- We shelter our kids these days

- Playground education

- The ads during televised sporting events are all about "cars, boners and beer"

- Parents may filter too much

- Can we fix our lack of historical knowledge?

- We can try to encourage kids to take an interest

- Collecting baseball cards was a fun hobby

- Too much focus on present and future to look at the past

- American populace is fairly passive about major problems

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
The Hush Now - I'm Always Broke in December

Low - Waiting (live)

Varsity Drag - Animal

The Linus Pauling Quartet - Crom
