This is the Trace. Here you will take part in conversations on art, culture, and world events all rooted in the year of the guests birth. We get into the personal and the political here so beware; all of those things that we are told not to talk about are on the table here. Who is it that doesn’t want us talking about sex, politics, and religion anyways? Here we will talk openly about all of those topics and more. I am Andrew Thomas Hackett. Welcome to The Trace.

So refreshing

Admittedly I am not a well-versed cinephile or music lover, but I have still found many things to appreciate in this podcast. The conversations are wide-ranging, and while diving into specific cultural items, manage to pull out larger reflections on humanity and existence. Moreover, I find that the emphasis on cultural relics from a given year challenges me to re-examine those relics and other expressions of culture that I encounter. Sometimes I wish that there was more background provided (or perhaps some links for people to expose themselves to content that they are otherwise unfamiliar with), but even still there is plenty to take away. The guests (and Andrew) have all been thoughtful and facilitated a flowing organic conversation. Look forward to more.
