In episode 8 of Spatially Aware, Dan Burkowsky and Kevin Marchand get into the thicket of Leftist politics. More specifically, they debate the role of history in informing the present, the obligations of an ostensibly "Good Nation," the utility of guilt, and more.
Dan Burkowsky is an English language teacher in Boston working with university students, adults, and immigrants. He studied social anthropology with minors in education and Spanish at Umass Amherst. He will start a masters program at the University of Cartegena in Columbia, studying the causes of immigration to the US from Central America and the Caribbean and how to create a better educational system for a diverse population.
Kevin Marchand is an aspiring artist of sorts. Writing fiction, pursuing intellectual truths, striving for moral wisdom, making music, devising narratives about life for young people in the 21st century--these are some of Kevin's passions. Passions he hopes to share, here.
