Thunk Tank Podcast is a collaboration of educators, artists, and craft beer brewers. We discuss the finer things (and drinks) in life, from, well, craft beer, to everyday life struggles, to the meaning of existence and our place in the cosmos. Yeah, you’re going to want to crack a cold one with us.
Check out this original narrative creative non-fiction piece “And You Realize You Wander With Glasses”. Originally published in print this past summer, you can now enjoy these words as they are meant to be shared: via audio format with accompanying images of this work’s inspiration. Enjoy!
“And You Realize You Wander With Glasses” was originally published in the Eastern Iowa Review 2017 Issue 3: Lyric Essay Issue 3. You can order a print copy here!
Please check out our new channel, Thunk Tank Podcast. As enlightening as we are (hopefully hilarious), join the Thunk Tankers (a musician, writer, and brewer) and crack a craft beer as we delve into social and scientific topics with deep fascination. We try to find the truth, sometimes. And the bottom of our glasses, always. Please like, share, and subscribe for further updates if you enjoy what you hear!

I normally use this blog for personal musings on everything from shower oranges to anecdotes about teaching; however, every now and then a much more serious issue captures the stage.
Long story short, the administration of the school where I teach, Stony Brook University, is indiscriminately eliminating ALL of their adjunct Writing Program faculty. I urge you to please read, sign, and share this petition in protest against these wholly unjust measures to both the faculty – and more importantly – the student body we serve.
Sometimes I truly worry if this is the beginning of the end of the humanities. But then I think: not while we have a chance to do something about it!
*Note: All quotes are – for better and worse – my own words.*
“I’m a jerk, not evil.”
“Is the fire alarm really going off right now?”
“Good luck with the philosophy.”
“Shoot some pool for me.”
“I don’t know. What do you think?”
“Okay…I can ignore the body paragraphs.”
“I gave up on that in second grade.”
“If I had written that sentence down, you would have seen the comma.”
“I always wanted to gamble at a church.”
Do you have any favorite out-of-context teaching quotes? Please share!
Me: “Don’t you talk to any of your other professors?”
Student: “No, they’re weird.”
Me: “Aren’t I weird?”
Student: “No, you’re good weird.”
