Lisp was born in the late 1950's but for most of it's life has been largely ignored by the mainstream. "Just like me", says our speaker. But: "A few coders from each generation rediscover the Lisp arts." (The source for that quotation will be made available.)
This is not so much a "how-to" as a "why you might decide to bother". Functions are cool again and Clojure is not your grand-parents' Lisp. Well, it is, but recursively self-modified.
Working titles were: 'I came for the parens but stayed for the abstract data structures and higher order functions' and 'From OOP & PLOP to immutability, time travel and magic, IN SPACE!', before a decision was made to label the tin clearly.
