Fauxropter is a podcast about refocused curiosity by John Dutton and Bobbie Gaucher. We learn about the world using words that represent things and ideas. But those words change their meaning over time. And maybe they mean different things to different people. Fauxropter is about starting conversations, not winning arguments. It’s about raising questions, not necessarily answering them. Because ultimately, it's about different ways of seeing the world. Please rate and review, and we would love to hear from you at [email protected]!

Episode 30 - COGNITIVE DISSONANCE
24:14Is it possible to ignore cognitive dissonance? Bobbie seems to think so and insists on solving humanity’s problems in under 30 minutes! John isn’t so sure… Please rate, review and subscribe. And let us know whether you suffer from cognitive dissonance by emailing us at [email protected].
Episode 29 - BAG
17:40This week’s episode delves into the word BAG. How did bags change the world and why can’t Bobbie ever remember to bring reusable ones to the store? We also take a lengthy but instructive digression to ask: What’s the deal with the pocketriarchy? If you’re enjoying Fauxropter, please give us a rating in the App Store and tell your friends about the show. Thanks!
Episode 28 - NATURE
24:33This episode is 100% natural, organic and gluten free. Because everything is from nature, right? But what if being natural isn’t good? And what if men use “nature” as an excuse to be dicks? John and Bobbie have some answers. For those of you who prefer your podcasts with a visual (of our logo) Fauxropter is also available on YouTube. And if you love the show, please rate, review and share with your friends!
Episode 27 - YEAR-END-REVIEW
32:30An update on the first (half) year of Fauxropter. What we missed, what we changed our minds about, and a fun throwback to the era of DVD extras with a blooper compilation at the end of the show. Thank you so much for listening in 2022, and please keep rating, reviewing and sending in your suggestions for more words and phrases to cover in 2023 to [email protected].
Episode 26 - SNACKS
39:15The Fauxropter holiday special is on SNACKS. If you have one New Year’s resolution to follow, it should be Bobbie’s personal declaration of independence: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Snackiness. Let us know what your fave snacks are, and also tell us what you think of the holiday remix of the Fauxropter theme (thanks, Ben!). Email us at [email protected], and please rate and review wherever you get your podcasts :)
Episode 25 - SCARED
19:04One of us isn’t scared of anything and the other is scared of everything. Maybe it’s because one of us is female… Or maybe not! See what you think by listening to Fauxropter’s take on SCARED. Don’t be scared to rate and review us on whichever podcast service you use. We really appreciate it. Even if a couple of people give us a 5-star rating, it helps other people discover Fauxropter. Thanks!
