Each month at ENDPAIN, we select a question related to our monthly theme that guides our content. This June, we chose to explore the theme of ‘Aging’ and decided to do something a little different: instead of relying solely on call-in answers, we set up a table at Arts Alive Fair in Ventura (thanks to contributor, Pat Fisher), and asked festival attendees to write their answers on a poster board with this month’s question:
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE YOUR YOUNGER SELF?
This resulting responses were edited together and read aloud by the ENDPAIN team to form this month’s VOX-POP. VOX-POP—which comes from the Latin phrase, vox populi, meaning “voice of the people”—is a kind of audio collage that gets us thinking about our upcoming theme in all its complexities and contradictions, and from new perspectives we might not have come up with on our own. Listen to this month’s VOX-POP to get a glimpse into all the ways we’ll be inquiring into the concept of Aging throughout the month of June.
