Unanswered 0: The Things You Own Own You

Header image for Unanswered Show 0 "The things you own own you"

In our pilot episode we talk about how objects that are owned have a curious way of becoming far more than objects, representing and reflecting aspects of our personality, and digging in their hooks way beyond the point of their usefulness.

Mugs, comic books, VHS cassettes, vinyl records and other seemingly harmless objects have their inherent evils revealed.

  1. Loved the podcast. Great pilot. It was great how you mentioned Buddhism in the early part of the show then described how attachment to material possessions can bring dissatisfaction to yourself. Then the process of release from that suffering coming through letting go of the past and coming into the here and now. The imagery of throwing the VHS tapes into the tip really helped me to understand how even though I don’t realise it I still am bound by my possessions. A British Buddhist monk (Phra Peter Pannapadipo) wrote about how as he gave away or sold his things a great weight left his shoulders and a feeling of freedom resulted. The conversation between Steev and Nik proves how the teachings of the Buddha can be understood and learned regardless of when or how it happens. When is the next show?

  2. Thanks for checking out the pilot; pleased you enjoyed it. We’ve got two more shows backed up which should be pushed out within the next week, then we move to a fortnightly schedule.
