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."

The early days were marked by carnival and vaudeville acts where wrestlers, often referred to as "hookers" due to their ability to "hook" their opponents into submission holds, would challenge locals to prove their strength. These exhibitions were as much about showmanship as they were about strength, setting the stage for what was to become professional wrestling.
