In this episode, Nicnac sits down with Antony Rotunno, a teacher, podcaster, musician, truth seeker and life coach to talk about artistic media creation, the search for truth, John Lennon, The Beatles and everything in-between. This is a hugely deep conversation that will likely cause both Nicnac and listeners to rethink some things.
The opening music is Raindrop Rhapsody by Josh Eikenberry. We also hear a selection of Antony’s “Life Goes On” featuring an amazing violin solo by María Martín. “Life Goes On” is copyright 2017 by Antony Rotunno and included with his permission.

I thank these artists for allowing their creations to be used in this production.
In this episode, Nicnac ends up going back to their formative years in the 1990s to examine a bit more of how they become who they are referring to it as “90’s X-Files Culture”. This cultural upbringing when combined with their pre-existing neurodivergent tendencies and childhood cancer trauma made Nicnac into the unique neurodivergent skeptical geek that they are today.
They pose the notion that being in the twilight years of Earth’s ability to sustain current life isn’t so bad if truth-seekers can gather together to extrapolate the lessons of the failed human experiment. They acknowledge their failings and liabilities in the area and seek your help to give any nuggets of truth they have found the legs they need to contribute and make the human endeavor worthwhile.
