We interview John about Seeing Things As They Are (2015). What is perception? Searle says that it’s not a matter of seeing a representation, which is then related to things in the real world. We see the actual objects, with no mediation. But then how can there be illusions? Well, it’s complicated, but not too complicated, just some funny terminology that this episode will teach you.
Beth started doing band-type things in grad school, fronted Clear Blue Betty from 2000–2007, then starting in 2009, became a solo artist, co-founding Madison’s Girl’s Rock camp and letting music consume all of her professional activities. She’s a classic singer-songwriter of the write-chords-and-good-lyrics-on-acoustic variety, and her mission is to help others (ladies of all ages especially) unlock their creative rockery.
We talk about “Wrong Side of Gone” from the Beth Kille Band’s 2015 EP Stark Raving Songbird, “Dead Man in a Dream” from her Dust (2012), and “Through the Walls” from the EP of that name by Clear Blue Betty (2007).
We also listen to “Little Bit Drunk” from Beth Kille’s Ready(2010). The intro/outro music is “Go Back” from Clear Blue Betty’s Never Been a Rebel (2004).
