037. THC. FADED T-SHIRTS AAAAAANNDDDD we're back folks, one lost episode later. The ides of digital reliance, ides? Ides. But alas, here we are for our 37th episode! Not the best track record but we here bb. In this episode we discuss the values of the things we were forced to forget, the subtle realizations of reality and life. Those worthwhile hardships, && the bullshit ones too. How do we navigate life's loops, can we escape the repetition of our own stories? Can you skip the hook? Welcome to theHURTCIRCUS.
Thanks for tuning in!
Much love and respect!

036. THC: 31 & SPUN Another one bites the dust; another episode, another year, like sand in the wind bb. Here we are, episode 36! And it just so happens the recording of this episode coincided with my birthday, April 22nd, so as usual we do a little birthday not-so-spectacular and just try and reminisce a bit on the past year as the new one approaches. We get into the inspiration for our titles, titles, titles and what inspired it. Along with our usual tangents on realizations and observations. Is hindsight a luxury earned in age? And the older we get, what is to be done with the baggage? Do we unpack it? Leave it all at the station? Or drag it along forever... Welcome to theHURTCIRCUS.

035. THC: Belated & Wasted Here we are again folks! Better belated than not at all, as they say, but alas episode 35 is here. Today we sit down for a little coffee and pop-tart chat with our host Nicholas Ridiculous. We discuss the current state and transition of pop-culture, and the further decay that befalls beloved franchise all over. As always we get around to the serious life stuff, a discussion of the jaded boy, current climate of collective confusion coupled with personal desirs makes for a funny world. Same old nonsense bb. How do we keep the momentum forward without burning out? What comes first the blow-up or the burn-out? Is it worth the risk to find out? Welcome to theHURTCIRCUS.
Thanks for tuning in!

034. THC: TAMED ANIMALS Aren't we though? Here we are again with a late as funk episode, my B folks! In todays episode, we get into the trials and tribulations of modern life in the transition from lockdown living, to the new world order or whatever it is these days (daze?)... the fun of navigating adulthood in these estranged times of hollow togetherness. We discuss how uncommon social common ground is these days after the years we spent in our own bubbles, and how easily divided it seems we all are. Especially when it comes to the basics... like our freedoms? But, for anyone who was forcefully raised within the child welfare industry, this type of authoritarian over reach is nothing new. Has the circus served as the prophecy of what is to come? Were we the trials, and the tribulations for the future? Have the lines between conspiracy and reality been so blurred? Welcome to theHURTCIRCUS.

033. THC: a lame apocalypse And another one! What's the happs m'cackle? In this episode of THC, we play a little catch up with the year. We get into the modern confusion that is; being human. Especially in terms of social aspects, and the current circumstances within out country at the moment. Divisive times spent on devices. Seems our time in captivity has only made us more feral to each other, especially in understanding each other. Amongst the chaos we try to grasp and understand the importance of family. Is normal a thing or an idea? A place to get back to, or strive to create? Or is it something we made-up purely to divide ourselves from others, in hopes of garnering a sense of security? Welcome to theHURTCIRCUS.

032. THC: It's been fun, 2021 Happy New Year! Even though New Years is cancelled in Canada. :): Another one bites the dust, it is always a trip how they just go by faster and faster each go around. And in such weird times we find ourselves in, it's been fun to say the least... In this final episode of the year we get a little emotional. Life has been quite heavy, and this episode was recorded just before the most heaviest so the imbalance has been real. This being my personal therapy podcast, I let my feelings just run in this one. It is a lot of pent up and suppressed emotions bubbling up lately. The process of mourning and letting is an arduous one, and it hurts a lot. It's like even in trying to just touch upon the subject, the flood gates just open up... every... damn... time. Is growing up learning to live with our greatest pains because how do you really get over loss? Do you just learn to live with it? How do you fix the past, when you never really can go back? Welcome to theHURTCIRCUS.

031. THC: SW33T&S0UR Oh fall, the seasons continue to change and so do we. In today's episode I sit down with a fellow artist, friend and former crown-ward Caterina Sinclair. We sit back and chit-chat about some of our own experiences navigating life after the child welfare industry. While editing this episode, I really noticed how bitter and sour a lot of my own outlooks are compared to Caterina's. I found it to be something I should acknowledge and probably work on, hence the title. Be sure to check-out the links and the many avenues of content I got coming out. Join a couple blazed-out ex-foster kids as they discuss emotions and bullshit. How do we grow past what we know? While letting go of all our comforts? Could it all be worthwhile?

030. THC: A Simulated Summer | 2021 Here we are, the end of the summer season 2021. What a blur that was huh? A season spent in a strange social limbo, content on a diet of mail order goods and direct to retina entertainment. And yet, the lowly creators crawling from the underbelly press onward! In today's late and distant episode we discuss the murkiness of personal balance and how the outside elements will forever persist. How do we gain strength from it, and ultimately set aside our childish bitterness and resentment to move forward? The golden-age of television is dead, let us mourn story-telling as it burns. Where does the power lie? How do we shift the tides? Welcome to theHURTCIRCUS.

029. THC: Reclaiming the Narrative Well, well, well, here we are again. Slow with them uploads, this is a late one. But alas, episode 29, welcome! In today's episode we get into some recent projects and outlooks in the world of lived experience experts. Reclaiming the Narrative is a new book project I am working on, we get into the importance of these kinds of independent projects that exist outside of the same system that inspire it. And the power that comes with reclaiming our stories beyond the fairytales of modern media. They controlled us for most of our lives, but they don't get to control our stories! Is it possible to connect the disconnected? Is our conditioning so engrained we only beckon when THEY call? Is all the experience and knowledge they take from us worth a measly $60.00 honorarium while they build their careers on our backs?! Welcome to theHURTCIRCUS.
