In this episode, Nicnac reflects on the horrors of 9/11 even from 2,800 miles and 20 years away and tells what they remember of that morning 20 years ago from the perspective of an isolated and burnt-out kid who loves flight sim and hates war and oppression…They talk about the dim view they take of the choices made by world leaders in the 20 years since that day and the 56 years prior to that day
The music is Raindrop Rhapsody by Josh Eikenberry.
In this episode Nicnac tries to connect their recent progress in self identity to the work that they’ve done and how they came to do that work. They try to explain that they are driven to strive for a better world because they’ve experienced pain and indeed have caused pain. Nicnac does this by talking a bit about the podcast, their desire to be accepted, their more problematic coping techniques and explaining why they wrote and released their early song “Say What You Want To Say” at the age of 19.
The opening music is Raindrop Rhapsody by Josh Eikenberry. The closing music is Catch Me If You Can by Attica Attica. Find them at atticaattica.bandcamp.com. Nicnac thanks both groups for allowing their creations to be used in the production of other work.
