Don’t worry, we haven’t gone anywhere. Our apologies for no new episodes in three weeks. Life’s been hectic, and we’re still in the process of editing a big two-part episode into a more digestible one. This is an excellent time to peruse our back catalog of episodes.
Coming soon: Bowie, Feminism on Doctor Who, and the return of Kitty Brown.
Thanks for staying tuned.
For some reason the audio player isn’t working on the individual episode pages. However the player is working on the Archive page. Click Archive above and find the episode you want on that page to listen.
We are investigating the cause of this issue and hope to have it fixed as quickly as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks for listening!
UPDATE: The audio issues have been fixed on all of the Podcast blog posts. Enjoy!
“I’ve heard a rumour from Ground Control / Oh no, don’t say it’s true”
There will be no new episode today. For those of you who listen, you know we lost our God last night, and we are devastated.
I can scarcely remember a time in my life when Bowie wasn’t in it. I remember as a child hearing his music all throughout the 70s, watching him live with Klaus Nomi on SNL in 1979, watching the music videos throughout the 80s and 90s, being in the front of the pit seeing him live with Nine Inch Nails in 1995, marveling at his ability to constantly reinvent himself, and worshiping him utterly.
He and his work sit on the throne at the very center of a Kingdom of music, art, culture, and counterculture that pumps in our veins and makes us who we are. He is the single most influential artist in the history of modern music. Without him, there would be no punk, no post-punk, no Goth, no New Wave, no Alternative rock, etc. So many other music careers and genres were begat by him, and to him they owe their successes.
His career spanned five decades, and he was–and always shall be–relevant. Fuck you, Eli, wherever you are. Stop what you’re doing and go buy or listen to his last album, Blackstar, just released on January 6. As it turns out, he knew he was not long for this world, and he was letting us know, and saying goodbye. Leave it to the man–the GOD–to eulogize himself. Last night, the heavens just became far more interesting. I just know Bowie and Lou Reed are already working together on a new project.
Somehow, I never imagined how I would feel should David Bowie ever die. Now I know, and it is not good.
Comedian, podcaster, and past guest of The Something Something Experience, Greg Proops, was oh-so-kind to mention us on the latest episode of The Smartest Man in the World: The Trimes of Crump, recorded live at Bar Lubitsch in LA on Wednesday, December 9. Greg riffed on Christmas, Burt Reynolds, Charles Nelson Reilly, and colossi.
Please give a listen and have a giggle.
