I am a free thinker, linking ideas together that previously were apart. I am a podcaster and you can catch me on http://tangentgeneral.com My name (birth name of course) is Nick, and I have been an artist for a long time. Recently I have been working with some amazing engineers (both audio and non-audio) and I found a real passion for creating and designing soundscapes. This show is a product from that process. I welcome all feedback, comments, and even the occasional love letter :P

It's a system designed to understand non-cooperative competitive games, and there is no deadlier a non-cooperative competitive game than that of Nuclear War. Nash himself was terrified of the bomb and that much we have in common. In some respects the cuban missile crisis may have been more severe (especially if Trump is colluding with the Ruskies) but nonetheless two mad men engaged in game of chicken can only ever end in tears. In this episode I strive to cut to the heart of the issue...

How important are Boundaries? Today, we take a more literal approach as we look to Trump’s wall and the various meanings that can be derived from it. We ask what does it mean to have a wall, a fence, a limit to our physical and personal space? Another driving question in today’s episode is: Why do good fences make good neighbours? We will hear from Robert Frost directly but think about the resonance of that idea. Limitations to space, demarcations of a perimeter allow for the...

Antarctica is thought to be a cold desolate place where only the Emperor Penguin can survive. But this may not be the whole story. From historical audio of Admiral Byrd, discussion of the potention devastation of the Horten 229s, contemplation about remote viewing and what it may reveal. Deep analysis of Operation High jump along with three montages! All of which concern Nazi's in Anatarctica. This is, in no way, an endorsment of Hitler or the Third Riech. Rather it is an exploration into...

How can we understanding our own ability to understand in the process of problem solving? There are many perspectives available to us at any one particular time, but the ability to recognise the abundance of potentialities is not always readily apparent. Enter Edward De Bono, author of (among other things) Lateral Thinking. By extending our horizons beyond convential wisdom and engaging our critical and creative minds, suddenly questions such as how a factory on the lake can be downstream...

Have you ever had a realization about something that has caused you to question everything you thought you knew? Maybe you found out a significant fact about a friend or lover. Perhaps you found yourself in trouble. It could have been that you had an experience, travel for example, that afterwards caused you to question the existence you had become accustomed to. For some it is the moment they become a parent. This causes a deep realization of the responsibility that they need to know enact.

Welcome to the Weird!! Is Rock and Roll the Devil's music? Are there hidden messages in famous rock songs when you play them backwards? What do you make of the strange phenomenon of backmasking? Is it just an auditory illusion or is there something to it. What is 923? Is the rapture coming on 23 September 2017? Did the Bethlehem star return on 23 September 2013? Can we even use the Gregorian Calendar to measure time in these events? Did king Harrod die in 4BC or was that a typo? What do...

Fight Nihilism! Episode three contains one story only. In this story I take you from the depths of despair that is Nihilism and Cynicism through to the motivated hope of a transcendental goal. Without struggle there is no hope, but struggle is arduous and can produce cynical perspectives. Our job is to find the hope that is there and to resist the draw to cynicism. Support Tangent General!
