About This Episode
Back from the holidays, we open 2021 by welcoming Semiogogue,
who has done extensive work in the fields of branding and semiotics.
He’s blended disciplines to explore how people and cultures understand
themselves and each other through signs, signals, marks, and “languages” of all types,
beyond what we just think of as spoken/written language.
A key focus of our discussion here is how meaning and notions of boundaries
are being attacked, and how everything from animal signs to human language
indicates that we do not live in a meaningless, relativistic world,
as much modern discourse teaches —
a worldview, if it can even be called that, currently wreaking havoc.
