So It Goes Podcast (Book Club Meeting 3) Posted by Matthew Milligan in College English · Pahomov/Rhymer · C Band on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at 10:30 pm Matthew, Deja, Katie, Zahira, Leah Comments (13) Nzinga Suluki-Bey This group talked about authors intent throughout it was not on topic. I like how the end was on a deadly one, but the group in all did very well together. The conversation flowed; they commented on each others interpretation of the authors intent. Brendan Hall They all interpretted the author's intention of his timeline choice. The production had good music in the intro. Sean Johnson good job, It was really introspective and you deduced how it related to ourselves in modern day. You had great synergy and a good sense of what the book meant to you as individuals. Sarah Berg Author's Intent: They discuss how the author wrote the book in a way that made it end abruptly with no real conclusion, and this reflected the way that the aliens in it view time. They also talked about how the message of the book was anti-war and shows humans repeating mistakes, and that Vonnegut possibly wrote his own experiences through Billy. Production: I liked how they decided to focus on the writing style and intentions with it, this provided them with a lot of content and they touched on a lot of aspects of the style. Carolina Ortiz-Lugo They talk about the authors intent in the whole podcast and I think that it was nice how they connected the author's goals to the real word and made sure to make the comment that the authors intent is based on their thoughts and analysis. I liked the way that there were a lot of questions coming from everyone. Eli Zimmerman This podcast I think has done the best job expressing the author's intent. You did a really good job of theorizing why certain things were put in by Vonnegut but then you backed it up with textual evidence. Ariana Flores I found the idea of whether a life really ends very intriguing. They also talked about how history repeats itself, which is a logical conclusion to come to based on that plot. When the group built of of that with their own interpretations of that idea (i.e. history repeats itself but some things change) and other ideas in general, it made for a more engaging discussion. Also, the music at the beginning of the podcast is really nice. Meymey Seng Yes, they addressed the author's intent and used events in the book that supported their different thoughts on it. Something that I enjoyed about the production is the fact that there were many questioned presented to the group, inviting others to speak. Amaris Ortiz Author's Intent - Showing the truths of how war can affect people. "The human experiences" as Matt said. Production - I like how they went off of each other's thoughts or questions, didn't feel cut up or scripted Brendan Barnes Very strong way to explain authors intent, the intro music was perfect for this podcast Jason Chen I feel like they did a good job explaining the general idea of the author's intent. With them explaining the intent it came in different forms of what the intent was. Otherwise, I always enjoy listening to the introduction and the flow of the conversation was good. Salsabeel Elbakhadaoui Yes they addressed the authors intent and a good job breaking it down because we didn't read the book, so it was helpful on the way they addressed it. I like the music they had in the beginning. Rebecca Snyder I felt like they did a good job presenting their broad interpretation of author's intent. They also expressed their different interpretations of what the intent was and commented on eachothers. As far as production, I enjoyed the opening music, it set up the conversation well.
