In this bonus episode, Kyle and Daniel interview their friend Lish Veldhuijzen to get her perspectives on the questions we’ve been discussing this season.



Assumptions is sponsored by ATB Financial (this week we highlight their Branch for Arts and Culture)  and the Alberta Podcast Network (this week we told you about the show Blue in the Face).


Show Notes:

Lish Veldhuijzen was reached in Victoria, BC where she is studying Traditional Chinese Medicine at Pacific Rim College.

Daniel (once again) quoted from Alan Jacob’s little book How to Think: A Survival Guide for a World at Odds: “These people are... not necessarily like-minded, but they are temperamentally disposed to openness and have habits of listening—and in that case are wonderfully like-hearted.”

Daniel defines his life goal as a combination of creating, collaborating, and communicating and realized this after working on a project with Lish.

Daniel referenced (and recommends) Robert Capon’s delightful book The Supper of the Lamb: A Culinary Reflection.

Lish references the Alan Watts quote: “If you will treat yourself for a while as a cloud or wave and realize that you can't make a mistake whatever you do, cause even if you do something that seems to be totally disastrous, it will all come out in the wash somehow or other.”

Lish also quotes from Eckhart Tolle.

Lish describes a conversation with her professor, Peter Conway.

We reference our two part episode on community and loneliness, which are Episode 7 and Episode 8 of Season Two.

The town of Bamfield, BC gets a shout out.



Assumptions is written and produced by Daniel Melvill Jones and Kyle Marshall.

This episode edited by Kyle Marshall.

Our soundtrack comes from The Parson Red Heads.
