That was the best ending to a podcast ever!!!! I loved it!
Yes, this episode is definitely one of my all time favourites. And I agree, the ending was fantastic!
I grew up in Wellesley Hills—went swimming in my early winters at the Babson College pool. Thanks so much for this story, Nate. Wherever he was geographically doing his theorizing and anti-gravity investment thing, I imagine him up the street, at the height of a hill the town named for someone who may have zagged, but, well, the tide zigged right over him.
Also, if you know a thing about the town of Wellesley, your moral is the saddest, most appropriate takeaway. I’ve been loving all the MP shows I’ve heard, but this one’s special. Thanks again.

This was a great episode. The ending was perfect. It made me incredibly happy.

The harp piece that plays is by Moondog!
It sounded so familar. Couldn’t place it. Haunted me for over a week!
