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.

Morgan's playlist: https://open.spotify.com/user/themildrevolution/playlist/1xcmemS3qoq6wte1P2ZU25?si=dwc09l05R-WhrHjYmJwcKQ

Zac's playlist: https://open.spotify.com/user/zaclittle/playlist/005FcMqJfYHdaHLlTAyD2H?si=cDiZ5rGvT6KK4Ea60Zvgeg

 

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.

 

Other topic include:

-Michael Pollan's show "Cooked"

-Black Mirror's "Bandersnatch"

-Paul Rust's bass guitar skillz

-Mac Miller (again)

-Cover songs they like

-Why it's OK to not know a song is cover

-Oboards, the Conor Oberst Reddit Board

-James Gunn

-What makes a song good for jamming

-Why "City Morgan" no longer wishes to "fuck" people

-Why Louis CK doesn't deserve another shot

-The Other Morgan Little

-How much it still sucks that Elliott Smith is dead

-A lot of stuff about drums and drummers

-Pedro The Lion's famous bassist

 

Thanks for listening!

Morgan and I discussed Mac Miller in this episode, but felt like we didn't do a good job, so we returned to the subject later in the episode, and still left feeling like we didn't do a good job. It's a difficult subject, and there are no right answers, and at the time we didn't even know that Mac Miller has, for instance, covered a Bright Eyes song! So we'll probably talk about it again on the next episode. I just wanted to say that in case you felt like we were being flip about his death. (I will say that compared to the way Ariana Grande fans talk on instagram, Morgan and I sound like fucking Boutros Boutros-Ghali and Ban Ki Moon or some shit.)

We're back with a new episode of TLPZL today, and we're abandoning some old ideas! Fun! 

Think of this as a spiritual sequel to Spring Cleaning. We've got new stuff with old friends like Jon Pernisek and Paul Neafcy, weird found sound, and a meditation on the nature of extreme pain!

Mar 27, 2018

The boys are back to talk about the Desaparecidos album READ MUSIC/SPEAK SPANISH, a landmark record that shaped our political consciousness (We get rambling something fierce a couple of times). We also discuss Titus Andronicus, Justin Timberlake, the MCU, and the birth of Arlo Logan Little, Conor Oberst's newest and biggest fan. Share this podcast with the Bright Eyes fans in your life!

Mar 8, 2018

New episode today! It's a kind of spiritual sequel to Good Question in which we interview Monte Bohanan (@Monte_Bohanan on Twitter) about how to interview people. It's also a meditation on influence and the death of David Bowie. 

Feb 20, 2018

Today on The Last Podcast, we free-associate our way into a few methods for improving the world. This episode was a lot of fun.

Happy holidays! It's Christmas Eve, the perfect time to begin our discussion of Conor Oberst's discography, and a perfect excuse to start with 2002's A Christmas Album! It's a semi-official Bright Eyes recording and a collaboration between Oberst and Maria Taylor to benefit the Nebraska AIDS Project, which you can buy here:

If you be my Wendy, I'll be your Peter Pan--so come on Wendy, and come on, Spider-Man! It's time for the final (?) episode of ARE YE TALKIN' ARCADE FIRE IN MAY, in which Zac and Morgan argue incessantly over the messaging of Arcade Fire's preachy and beautiful new record, Everything Now. Along the way, we check in with Game Of Thrones (no spoilers!), Conor Oberst, Iron & Wine, St. Vincent, Grizzly Bear, and lots of other artists unrelated to the lads from Canada. Thanks so much to everyone who has supported this show and talked to us, and special thanks to our contest sponsor Delia! Anyway, do you like, uh, rock and roll music? If so, listen on!

Aug 8, 2017

Today's episode of the podcast covers a lot of ground: Led Zep or the lack thereof, noise, my grandfather's regrets regarding the non-contiguous U.S. States, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, illness, death, New York City in 2009, Jenny Lewis, my 30th birthday, and a lot more. I hope you like it. Thanks for listening.

I invited the musician Mackenzie Keefe to my house a few weeks ago to talk about his incredible new record, SUMO. We talked about his process and intentions, and also about a lot of other things, while Jory and Christy made pizza in the next room. 

We make a lot of stops along the way! Listen to SUMO when you are done!

Today's episode features MARY AKEMON, RYAN LEWIS, DELIA ROJAS, CHELSEA FISHER, and RYAN O'CONNOR. It's about mechanisms of memory, and museums, and art vs. artifacts, and the dangers of nostalgia. Familiar topics to long-time listeners of the show! Hope you like it! Have a good day.

Today's episode is a gosh-darn metaphysical journey! It has been in the works for a long time, and I'm excited to share it with you today. It features a lot of people, but first and foremost I have to thank Willy Hassell, host of Spirit Radio, for all of his help. You can listen to his show here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/spirit-radio-the-paranormal-experience/id852695947?mt=2

The boys are back to discuss Arcade Fire's double album REFLEKTOR, as well as to discuss the prospects of EVERYTHING NOW, Arcade Fire's recently-announced forthcoming record. 

Zac is in full-on Honeymoon mode with everybody's favorite Indie Arena Rock Band, but Morgan has since soured on The Suburbs. 

Along the way, they check in with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, discuss San Fermin's "Belong," contemplate the whole concept of Gorillaz, worry about the futures of Death Cab for Cutie and Vampire Weekend, and go pretty deep into the Orpheus myth -- especially the part where he dies from getting fucked to death. 

This episode is not sponsored by Blue Apron, Casper Mattresses, and Bonobos. 

Thanks to Scott and Scott, as always.

Good morning!

Today's episode is a little bit of something old, a little bit of something new. We talk to TIFFANY PUZA, General Manager of Operations for BAD LAB BEER CO. Then, Zac and MAX WALLACE talk about the modern security state. Plus, in a re-edited re-broadcast of episode 7, "Spring Cleaning," we hear from PAUL NEAFCY and JON PERNISEK while Zac and DAN FREUND travel to the Republican Presidential Debate. All that time travel is a lot to handle, so at the end, present-day Zac talks a little bit about personality types and gender roles. This episode is sponsored by Audible. Just kidding. Read a real book, you jerks!

If you've ever wanted to recommend this show to a friend who couldn't figure out how to access podcasts, good news! I've started adding back episodes to YouTube. http://youtube.com/rockandsockandrobot is where you'll be able to find them.
