The cost of convenience

 

It's 2016: you don't have to hunt and gather your own podcasts. Make sure that you're SUBSCRIBED to Around the Table, so that you never miss an episode!

This week, we’re talking about how convenience affects our lives, for better or worse.

What you'll hear:

  • When we are and aren’t willing to pay for convenience
  • Which conveniences make our lives worse
  • Why easy, efficient, and convenient aren't always worthy objectives, especially when it comes to relationships, creativity and work
  • How a car accident proved fruitful

Can I quote you on that?

  • "The rest of this episode I’m gonna be on a convenience food soap box, and it might get obnoxious.” Maggie
  • “Where I come from, the meal is a result of reflection and study. Menus are prepared in advance, timed to perfection. It is said, without the culinary arts, the crudeness of reality would be unbearable.” Kate and Leopold
  • “We don’t value waiting and what can happen in process. We start something and we want to see a result, and we care very little about what is cultivated in us or in our community or in the people around us while we’re waiting for that result.” Maggie
  • "Sometimes the obstacles to what we want can be in our best interest.” Jacey
