In this episode co-hosts Kristina Stykos and Emily Howe discuss a new look for 2020, how to get drunker by not drinking, confusion caused by chocolate “lint” balls, dueling hot cereal recipes, John’s caloric fuel for barn chores, Emily’s photo scanning marathon, a merger between the perfect childhood & a working class upbringing, living out your own, personal ethnic diversity, a dumb game from Facebook, how a recording session can morph into five days of group therapy, guidelines for respectful primal screaming, what not to smoke when you are paying someone to produce your music, defacing federal property using a train, the art of playing one note well, back when we were babies, imagining goose down cat-capsules & other leisure furniture for felines, celebrating New Year’s with baroque recorders, whether or not being boring can be turned into an asset, using banjos & ukes as props for comedy, the humor of huge instruments, Lester Corwin’s epic rides to the bandstand in South Royalton, when haters become friends, how driving helps you accept your life, the joys of plastic reverb microphones, the decline of trashy magazines, a checklist turned on its head, telling people off or not because maybe it doesn’t help, new things for guys to say, more on forgiveness, how cool it is to be adored, seeing your future with yourself unfold, holding yourself despite the implied difficulties, a mystical sighting of the Nestle Quik Rabbit - and so much more!
