Music, Footnotes & Ephemera

The music is the third track on Panda Bear’s Young Prayer record.

Most of the details in this one come from Pretty-Much-the-Greatest-Book-Ever, The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York, by Robert Caro. If you read only one thirty five year old, thousand-some-odd page biography of an urban planner this year, make it that one.

    Not sure if it is my computer or not but, I cannot get this episode to play. The other ones are working fine, just not this one.

    Huge fan by the way. You do an amazing job!

  2. Zachariah says:

    I’m a big fan of Panda Bear, Avey Tare, and Animal Collective so I was really stoked to hear something from Young Prayer in the background. Today also happened to be the day I discovered your podcast. Great stuff!

    I was backtracking on TMP episodes I missed and came upon this episode. Try as I might I really cannot understand the last line:
    “..the one on the left, a mountain lion, the one on the right, a family of leopards, and between them, ????”
    Please help!

    Jack, he says, “A stray Airedale Terrier”.
    That’s the breed of dog shown in the picture for this episode.
