Bill Deresiewicz is an award-winning essayist and critic who has written a new book. The book warns that the art we all love – music, books, films and much more – is in jeopardy. Based on deep research and interviews with artists and content creators, Bill is worried that the digital economy isn’t supporting that art that sustains our souls, and that we are in the middle of a big transformation.

In this conversation with Bart Campolo, Bill talks about art as a secular religion, “humanities-based spirituality”, the “Darwinian attention derby”, the mythology of the artist as lazy or entitled, the discouragement many creators face against pursuing their art, the small percentage of artists who are making a true living at it, the death of the arts as a harbinger of a larger death, of dignified work and the middle class, how the big tech platforms make money from artists’ creations, how fixing this problem could help address some of our other problems like a lack of diversity and representation, and the idea that we should feel a responsibility to content creators.

Mega is an improvised satire from the staff of a fictional mega church, hosted by Holly Laurent and Greg Hess.

In this conversation with Bart Campolo, Holly and Greg talk about satirizing American Christianity, what makes it funny, and the mental gymnastics it takes to twist Jesus into a capitalist. But it doesn’t take long before they’re also talking – very personally – about being haunted by the evangelicalism of childhood, how to live authentically, recovery from trauma, undoing some of the Christian cultural lessons about sexuality after you’re married, marriage itself and more.

In this Part 2 with Mark Oppenheimer, recorded later after both had listened back to their first conversation, Mark and Bart return to take the earlier convo in a practical direction.

Including: Facebook versus Letter to the Editor, steel-manning, don’t act in ways you wouldn’t let your kids act, diversity including identity and ideology, features of the ‘new puritanism’, the importance of hearing from the young and old, keeping kids off social media, thoughts on how people with privilege should engage with people from oppressed groups, allowing people to care about different things, progress can be made with compassion for what is lost in the process, how sometimes people trying to change the world are cruel to those right next to them, how we may be living in the most humorless time in American history, and the importance of being committed to something.

Mark Oppenheimer is a friend of this podcast who is a signatory to a recent open letter published by Harper’s Magazine, in praise of open debate and tolerance for differing opinions, and against some aspects of ‘cancel culture’, dogmatism and censoriousness.

In this conversation with Bart Campolo, Mark chats about why he signed the letter, the limits and boundaries of free speech, the likeliest paths to progress, the effects of added scrutiny on writers at present and some of the reasons he thinks liberals have gotten less ‘liberal’. It’s just Part 1, so stay tuned for a followup! This topic is part of our focus on better conversations.
