Episode 017: Existential Chemistry

Colleges are opening up in a variety of ways but the universal constant is that there are classes that everyone just has to get through. And you will. This week on the podcast I embrace that spirit with a meditation that survives from my own college days. If you don't pick it up from the context of the piece, I did not enjoy - nor do terribly well - at Chemistry. It's just never been my subject. Thus was born "Existential Chemistry." 

Another brief anecdote, I shared this with a friend years ago, and as the story goes it was printed out and posted in the halls of a certain college's Chemistry building. If you've seen "Existential Chemistry" in the wilds of your college, let me know!

Hey, I'd love to hear what you think of the podcast, whether it's a specific poem or the format, or whatever's on your mind! Leave a review or a comment in your podcast app, or catch me on Twitter @Lefthandrob.

After listening to the podcast (or while listening), visit one of these sites and donate for the cause, because All Black Lives Matter and my fellow white (and cis) people we need to get in the game:

Donate to Black Lives Matter

Donate to the Souther Poverty Law Center

Donate to the Equal Justice Initiative

Transgender Law Center

The poems will continue to flow, but so must the Justice.
