  • We start and end with Daniel Berenboim playing Lizt’s 6 Consolations, S. 172: No. 3 in D flat minor.
  • We hit up Yes But, from Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriens’ score to Christine.
  • We return to the official Memory Palace love theme of William Henry Harrison, The Gentle Softness, Lalo Schiffrin’s score to The Last Dragon
  • We cruise on the U.S.S. Princeton to Dispute by Yann Tiersen.
  • Twist comes to Missing Pieces from the Broken City score.


  • I read quite a bit about the Tylers, but really, one needs only to read “and Tyler Too,” by Robert Seager II.

    As a descendant of Julia Gardiner, I choose to think of her as a heroine who was way ahead of her time. I knew she was a First Lady but not the details. As one of my favorite podcasts, memory palace continues to tell riveting stories!

    Great podcast, but you left off one of the most interesting details about Julia Gardiner. As of 2012, she still had two grandchildren who were living. Not great or great-great grandchildren, but grandchildren. There was a great article about them at and an article about them in the New York magazine.
