The Functional Nerds, Part Deux

Recently, I sat down with The Functional Nerds to tape two podcasts (Editor's note: podcasts are not, in fact, "taped"; Chris is simply an old man with a limited understanding of modern technology). The first of them, on horror movies, went up last week. The second (and no doubt more contentious) one, on art versus commerce, is up today. On it, John Anealio and I gnash teeth and rend fabric over balancing artistic fulfillment against careerism, and the dangers of creeping jealousy to creative endeavors, while Patrick Hester rolls his eyes and calls us babies. (Editor's note: Chris is exaggerating for dramatic effect. A little. In truth it was a great, and frank, conversation, so you should go listen to it and stuff.)
