Elucidate No. 41 - Patricia Borgess 2


Patricia is a clinical mental health counselor, and she just gave birth to a baby at home, in the bathroom. On the toilet, specifically (Don't worry the midwife caught the baby). We did this podcast early, so it took a moment to rev up. We talk about our communication struggles, having a midwife assisted home birth, and our culture clashes.

Elucidate No. 40 - Will Ludwigsen


Will Ludwigsen is a published writer of novels and short stories mainly in the Sci-fi and horror genres. He's also an adjunct professor of writing at University of North Florida. - In this episode I get to know Will a little better, and there's a lot to talk with him about that we didn't get to, even for a two hour episode. Hopefully he'll return to continue our conversations. - In this episode we talk about what it's like growing up in a staunch republican environment in “The South”, society, the internet, writing, and books.
