"I Was Really Keen on Learning to Gallop and, You Know, Kind of Chewing Grass"

The Resonance Test 28: Thomas Thwaites

And now for a Very Special Episode of The Resonance Test. This particular conversation, straight from our archives, has our Toby Bottorf chatting up Thomas Thwaites, author of two thoughtfully bizarre books: GoatMan: How I Took a Holiday from Being Human (you read right!) and The Toaster Project: Or A Heroic Attempt to Build a Simple Electric Appliance from Scratch (sounds awesome, no?). It’s jolly great fun to hear Thwaites say things like: “I was really keen on learning to gallop and, you know, kind of chewing grass,” and: “If technology is about kind-of-letting-us fulfill-our-dreams-kind-of-thing, then I suppose it’s like: 'Which dreams do we try and fulfill?'” We think this is a great way to wind up the Resonance Test year. Thanks so much for listening—and please enjoy the goatish, toasty conversation between Thomas and Toby!
