There are weeks when everything is just too much for a theme to encapsulate and that is when say “grab bag” and whatever is on your turntable, CD player, or iPod, is acceptable. Turns out that Matt Patton can move anybody to swooning and doom metal has been around since the late 1970s (like, for realz.) Still goofing around with a soundboard and it isn’t perfect but we aren’t as fuzzy as episode 164. Three cheers for audible improvement!
