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.)
A story about Rick Velardo.
In today's episode, we talk about power lifting, the bizarre contradictions of self-knowledge, and most importantly, how Aaron Sorkin deserves more credit.
An experiment in the spirit of democracy.

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!
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!
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.
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.
