This week on this extra curricular Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show, Jeff appears on a cross-over podcast episode with the Indoor Kids’ Kumail and Emily, with Patrick Cassels as well. They play the Meta Game and during it they have to make arguments for why dodgeball is the most stressful thing, why saying Google will get you laid, and why Hungry Hungry Hippos is the best symbol for people who have no friends.
“Kids are taught communication skills in school, they are taught English, but are they ever taught silence, are they ever taught the importance of listening? They are taught art and music, but are they ever really taught about what challenges what the boundaries of what music can be. I think John Cage’s work really exemplifies this and it is 4 min and 33 seconds long, how often are kids really required to stay silent for that long?” - Emily with her Don Draper-esque presentation on why John Cage’s 4’33’ should be taught in school.
