Bright Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose is a subpodcast of The Last Podcast in which Zac and his brother Morgan discuss the discography of Conor Oberst, the most important artist of our lives.
Today's episode is long, kind of badly recorded, wandering, and full of emotional and political details. It's about I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning, the best Bright Eyes album ever made. We are joined by Mackenzie and Tyler, our friends from the band The Meltdowns, who bring a different perspective to the proceedings.
Join us as we analyze 9/11, wonder about Watergate, explore our past relationships with women and each other, play a game about ABBA, and much, much more.
Hey gang -- I wanted to re-post this episode because it was a little too loud as originally uploaded, causing the audio to click rather annoyingly in some speakers/headphones. I don't know if anyone noticed other than me, but I will feel better having corrected this. OK, new episode soon! Bye!
Today's episode is about the power of theater.

Portions of this episode originally appeared on WSCA Portsmouth Community Radio. Thank you Dan and Phil.
Recorded March 2018 - June 2019
Special thanks to Christi Little for invaluable editing advice, and Lizzy Goodman for unknowingly suggesting a format.
The audio mostly gets choppy around big laughs. The rest of it is OK. But I also talk fast, so I would recommend reading along, just in case:
Today's ep is a direct sequel to the last one, "Systemic Understanding." We talk to Sarah Wrightsman, the Executive Director of the Workforce Housing Coalition of the Greater Seacoast. We also talk to Steven Hedlund and Becky Holt of the Global Aquaculture Alliance, and check back in with Elena Piekut, assistant city planner in NH's only city doing anything right, Dover NH.
We cover a lot of ground in this one, but really, it's about one question: how do you know that what you're doing is working?
Shoutout to my pal Fred Balas, who tipped me off to Sarah's many acronyms.

Today's episode is about endings, but also about beginnings, and holidays, and social media, and the Old Internet, and the Chef's Table, and Arlo's musical preferences, and La Blogotheque, and creative crises/depressive episodes (I have a hard time telling the difference).
Thanks for listening. The plan is to have a new episode ready every two weeks for a couple of months.
In today's episode, Morgan and Zac talk about OH HOLY FOOLS and ONE JUG OF WINE, TWO VESSELS -- probably the two albums they eached looked most forward to discussing, respectively, when this podcast started. They also decide, with 90% certainty, who is singing in "We Are Free Men," and then start a new religion based on the teachings of David Bowie.

-Michael Pollan's show "Cooked"
-Black Mirror's "Bandersnatch"
