Monocycle: Episode 20, The Process of Monocycle

I took last week off Monocycle because after spending two hours on Tuesday morning trying to reconcile an episode on so many conflicting thoughts and ideas that fell under one, uniform umbrella: the hormonal blame game and what it does the voices inside our heads, I surmised that none of the content was publishable.

Instead what transpired was this blog post. But then I felt dirty, complaining and crying and spending so much of my output on negative input, so I got dressed and said fuck it, determined to fake it ’til I make it. (It, of course, being leveled, happy, full-on life again.) Part of that meant distracting myself, and one of the easiest ways to do that is to talk process. Here we produce all of this content, both written and not, and rarely, if ever elaborate on the process. So to kick off a case study called Do You Care, here’s an episode of Monocycle wherein the process of building these episodes are torn apart and narrated. Let me know what you think and whether you’d like to see more of this inside-stuff.

If you don’t, of course, we can go back to regular programming — the best programming! — where we talk about feeling our feelings and how that feels.
