Episode 013 — Framboise and Collecting Things

Gabe and Jeff discuss collecting, hoarding and making choices about our things as we drink a Brouwerij Lindemans Framboise out of a fancy glass.

Do our objects define us? How long is it OK to keep unopened boxes in your attic after your last move?

Books, vinyl records, beer, board games, digital files — all of these collections serve as reminders of the kind of person we imagine ourselves to be but also serve to tie us to the past, boxing us into our image of a person we have moved on from.

Heady stuff. We probably needed a drink that has more than 2.5% ABV to see us through it but we did our best.
