SERIOUS INTROSPECTION

SI audio podcast #2: Girilal Baars

My pal Girilal stopped by Helsinki last month and we recorded this conversation, which touched on science fiction, improvisation, being an audience member, and lots more. This is also an attempt to keep the SI podcast feed alive with some occasional content, as enough interesting people pass through my life that I should try to share their ideas with a larger audience.

Detailed notes will follow but you can subscribe to this feed via iTunes (which will be audio-only for the time being) and get more information about the whole SI concept via seriousintrospection.fi.

Girilal's website is www.girilal.com.


with John W. Fail is a live show in Helsinki, Finland. The show takes place at Mad House Helsinki's Ihana Baari, and is free to attend. Each week, John along with hype man Justin Tyler Tate, interviews people about their creative process and tries to deliver a direct, communicative experience about art and performance. You know, we did eight shows in the first season and it was pretty time-consuming, but we're excited to be coming back for more in 2016. We try our best to entertain. We've made videos available from all episodes of the show here for you to watch. Next year we will return between February and April for season two; well, it's season two for us, but season three for Mad House, which is a bit confusing. The videos aren't always perfect and the audio even less so, but we hope you still enjoy them. The show will probably move to Wednesdays in 2016 but we still need to work out those details. We also will occasionally post audio podcasts when we get the time to go more in-depth with people, outside of the public show. But wait, there's more! We will come to your event and offer our services for hosting, hyping and media specialisation (live tweeting) for a variable fee. We are available to be booked for parties, wedding, bar mitzvahs and other events. The for-profit arm of Serious Introspection is called SI Services and we're up for anything, really! If you'd like to find out more about Serious Introspection, you can start by watching these episodes and seeing if it's your cup of tea. We have a Facebook page which we use to post info about the upcoming shows and videos as they are released. The hashtag #SeriousIntrospection contains the running stream of live tweets from our media specialist Ernest Truely (and anyone else who might contribute). We have made the show available as a podcast via iTunes and Stitcher. So yeah, that's it, pretty much. We will announce future events and SI-related matters here so feel free to check back any time. We're trying to keep this page simple, if for no other reason than our cup runneth over with websites already.
