David Boles: Human Meme


Welcome to the David Boles: Human Meme podcast! You may subscribe via Apple iTunes, Google Play Music, iHeartRadio, Stitcher, TuneIn, Pocket Casts, Spotify and RSS or your own podcast player. We explore ideas of knowing, merits of sharing, and the danger of thought -- as one listener wrote about this podcast; "Mindfulness with an edge" and another said, "You have the spirit of philosophy; you inspire dialectic thoughts." David Boles lives at Boles.com, writes for BolesBlogs.com, and publishes with BolesBooks.com. David Boles' memetic conundrum considers the braided prairie pause against the sinking sky: "I can't see what it is; and I don't know what it isn't."

Through the historic lens of the tumultuous relationship between King Henry II and Thomas Becket, we explore how words, when spoken by those in positions of authority, carry an immense weight that can shape the course of history. This episode is a trek through the psychological, ethical, and cultural dimensions of leadership and communication, revealing how lessons from the past remain vitally relevant in our modern, rapidly-changing world. Now we unravel the complexities of authority, the subtleties of language, and the enduring power of narratives in shaping our understanding of both history and the present.
