In this kickoff episode of The Electric Symposium I am joined by author and Metapsychosis contributor J.F. Martel, as well as Metapsy editors Natalie Bantz and Marco V Morelli. Together we talk about J.F.’s latest essay, “Reality is Analog,” our curious fascination with the “lifeworld” of 80s analog, and the Metapsy team’s various theories behind the pop cultural Netflix sensation, “Stranger Things.” Pop in the tape and press play.
