What is a place? This question seems simple, but the more you think about it, the more headache-inducing it becomes.
A "project of place" doesn't make sense without an attempt to define what a place is. To that end, I outline two extremes of thinking about place: everywhere is unique and everywhere is basically the same. Both are silly, so I try to justify taking a middle way, which is intuitive but not easy to articulate. I'll probably have to revisit and revise this theme many times in future episodes.
Speaking of future episodes, have you subscribed to the podcast yet? You really should. There's an iTunes button below, so you don't have to waste time searching for Tucsonense within their terrible iTunes Store interface.
Music by the venerable Randy Marsh, who composed it for a terrible movie I made back in 2004. You'll never see the movie, but his catchy tunes have aged well.
