Fri, 10 Mar 2017 16:27:55 GMTHi-Phi Nation is the first story-driven, narrative podcast on contemporary philosophy. Every week we begin with compelling stories of ordinary and extraordinary human experiences, and transform them into an examination of philosophical ideas. We profile stories from war, crime, politics, religion, public health and policy, science, and history that raise philosophical questions, and we answer them with the help of contemporary academic philosophers. The aim of the show is to bring fans of the best narrative, story-driven podcasts like Invisibilia, Radiolab, 99% Invisible, and This American Life into philosophy. We're halfway through the first season, so subscribe and binge now!
Fri, 10 Mar 2017 16:01:44 GMTUniontown's Dukes/Nutt affair has all the elements of a lurid daytime soap: the sexually explicit letter calling a beloved daughter's honour into question; the outraged father gunned down while challenging his daughter's despoiler; his killer walking free from court; lynch mobs baying in the streets; riots and a fleeing jury; the dead man's son taking deadly revenge; high rhetoric at the boy's trial and a determined bending of the law to ensure he escaped punishment; an innocent woman shot in the violent aftermath; and a prison sentence cut short by friends in the governor's mansion. All this played out in Pennsylvania and Kansas between 1882 and 1903. It's the subject of PlanetSlade's first major essay for over two years, and you can read the full story here.

You must include all nine elements presented by the icons on the story cubes (aka dice) 2. Have fun 3. There is no wrong way to engage in this, as long as it's words 4. Please share your output 5. Please share your output by March 31st 2017 - Apologies I have to have an endpoint. Please comment here or on my Twitter account @faintdreams with the hashtag #Whodice so I can add a link to the results post here, and also let other people see what you wrote. Sharing is part of the fun. 6. Have fun. Yes this is rules 2 and 6, because it is the most important rule. - - - Potential Questions: Q: Why? A: I was gifted some Doctor Who Story cubes, and needed a reason to not only use them, but put the results online for others to see. [ I am in no way associated with Story Cubes, nor BBC, nor Doctor Who, nor any of the copyright nor intellectual property holders of any of the aforementioned trademarks/copyright/properties ] Q: Is this a competition? Is there a prize? A: No and No. This is not a competition, this is just a writing exercise, inspiration pot, piece of fun. There are no prizes other than having the joy of having written something your very own, based on Doctor Who. Q: Can I take part? A: Definitely. Just please leave a comment, with a link to your words, here or on my Twitter account @faintdreams with the hashtag #DrCube so I can add a link to the results blog here, and also let other people see what you wrote. Q: What do the individual icons mean? A: Each dice icon is entirely up to interpretation. The game creators did this deliberately. From The Story Cubes Website:* "We get asked for definitions of icons every day - but their meanings are intentionally open, in order to trigger multiple associations. For example the castle can be (literal) castle, or it can refer to a princess, or to someone who is behaving in a guarded way" "The 'Master' could be an evil mastermind or a (maniacal) scientist, the 'Dalek' might become a robot servant! The 'laurel wreath' icon could be a crown worn by a Roman (or Galactic) Emperor: it could also represent a wreath for the dead, or a reward for heroism. You don't find a Doctor or Companion icon in the set. It is assumed they will appear in your story - " But they don't have to! Q: What format should my participation be in? A: Anything that involves words. This includes - but is not limited to: A drabble, a poem, a haiku, a screenplay, a brief synopsis, a short story, a long story, a picture of something you've written, a tweet, a tumblr post, an AO3 (Archive of Our Own) post, A Dream Width post, An [insert your social media of choice] post, your own blog site. Just make sure it's words. No art, video, puppetry, audio, or anything that isn't words. Just words. Also if you do create an post in a language other than English (please do) please also provide an English translation. Unfortunately I only speak /write/understand English Q: Why Just Words? A: This is a writing prompt thang, for fun. Keyword- Writing Q: Are there any other rules I should be aware of? A: Nope. The only limits on your story are the cube icons, and your imagination. Any Doctor, Any Time, Any Space, Any companion, any combination thereof. Have fun. [ Please no[...]
