“You can’t do a mohawk with curly hair.”

Misfit Star Scott S. recently posed us a fascinating Listener Question: What labels have we worn in the past, and why did we wear them? And what did they mean to us at the time? 

We spend this episode talking about the specific labels each of us has worn at various points in our lives, and also about the more abstract role of labels as totems – given, learned, earned, and aspirational – and how they define our sense and understanding of what it means to be a human, inhabiting this strange world we share with other humans, all searching for community, meaning, and fulfillment.

Our work relies on the ongoing small-dollar support of people who believe in what we’re doing. If that’s you, please join us: misfitstars.com/support.

Thank you so much for your support; we couldn’t do any of this without you. ❤️
