BT 3: Whiskey, Start-Ups, and the Problem With Transactional Communities

Giving Bonnie “Prince” Billy a glass of whiskey turned out to be harder than it sounds. But I learned a powerful lesson from it: not all communities have your best interests in mind. It’s not because they’re against you, it’s just that they’re not strong enough. Or more specifically, the relational ties within them are not strong enough. If you’re looking for real change – in your life, in your society, in the world – you need a community that has grandpas and grandmas, and babies, too. Does your local music scene have those things?

This episode talks about:

  • What I learned from being asked to give Bonnie “Prince” Billy a glass of whiskey.
  • Why even the most dedicated punk show still didn’t feel like home for me.
  • The problem of being an economic refugee in the Western world.
  • Why start-ups show off their street art, pool tables, and hipster employees.
  • What the indie music scene and the start-up community have in common.
