Holiday Special 2019

Happy Holidays Pan-Optic listeners! Welcome to our second "Reflections" episode and first ever Holiday Special. The purpose of today’s episode is to conduct a “pulse-check” of the podcast. We reflect on the following questions: What is Pan-Optic about? Have we evolved on this question over the last 6 months? Who is our target audience and what do we want our listeners to takeaway from our discussions? Also, who are we—our backgrounds, interests, and aspirations? And finally, what are some topics that we hope to cover in 2020? Along the way, we respond to some criticism from Reddit; we talk about religion and what the holidays mean to us; and we riff on David Fincher’s Mindhunter, radicalization, the mercenary firm Blackwater, high performing ESG stocks, and much more. We’ve grown faster than we anticipated since launching in August 2019. Help us sustain this growth and make Pan-Optic the most energizing, interdisciplinary podcast by submitting your ideas and feedback through the chat box on We look forward to hearing from you in the New Year. Otherwise, grab a drink, relax, and enjoy the show!
