A question I always wondered. In the video interview, he’s on-stage talking to me and asking if I have any questions or want to talk about something. He’s actually making a bit of noise and the camera shows Bennett being very calm about it. I’m not sure.
I guess the “Ventriloquism” is the act of turning a table at a party into a sort of microphone. I don’t know!
My favorite part of the interview is when Bennett talks about an upcoming “performance in the streets” in Seattle. I don’t know why Seattle or why is “street performance” his idea of a performance. You would think the streets of Seattle would be a perfect place if you’ve grown up in the city, but I guess in his mind it’s just a nice excuse to party.

The concert will be in conjunction with his first “performance in the street” which runs Sept. 25-26.

It is that, more broadly, the world has changed at such a pace that the concept of equality seems increasingly irrelevant.
So what, exactly, is real inequality?

Inequality is about how rich an individual or group of people is, and how much they are able to influence the lives and livelihoods of others – and how their actions affect others, as well.
The globalisation of work has meant that it now takes less and less to get a job than it used to, and means that the jobs that do exist are not well paid. And the pace of innovation has increased considerably, and the impact of that on wages and employment has increased accordingly.
But because we are so tied to the idea of inequality, it has become harder and harder to talk about it as such. And because we live in a system that rewards the well-
