MF: Well, this is nothing new, but I just… Hit Creek Kind of got me through the pandemic. I was late and it took a while to get in, but it was the greatest performance ever. This is so interesting. It makes me very happy, I hope I have never seen it before, so that I can watch it again from the beginning, and I am envious that those who have not seen it can jump in directly.
LG: Yes it is. Hard endorsement. I also like our real estate theme here because they lost their home and then they lived in a motel. Have you watched this Netflix special, they went behind the scenes at the end of the sixth season?
MF: NO, I have not. Oh, I still have something to see.
LG: Yes it is. This is great. Tears, yes. You must pay attention to this.
MF: Not bad, awesome
LG: Eliot, what do you suggest?
EB: It’s not very new, but I recently listened to a friend’s podcast Fiasco, this is the season of the Iranian opposition, I don’t know anything about it, and it’s very attractive. Basically where are we…I’m already going to screw this up. We are dealing money for weapons involving Iran and the Latin American opposition, Oliver North and Reagan (Oliver North) and Reagan (Oliver North), and a lot of interesting Senate hearings… this huge Scandal, but it did slip away without causing much damage.
LG: What is the name of that podcast? You say fiasco?
EB: A fiasco.Yes, this was disclosed by a friend Leon Neyfakh, who was in slate.
LG: Oh, Slow Burn is really good. It must be pretty good.
MC: Somewhere in the closet, I have a Shred’Em Ollie bumper sticker. If you remember everything was torn apart.
LG: Mike, do you have any suggestions?
MC: So, I would like to recommend a streaming music platform, it is called Mixcloud. I thought everyone had heard of this, but I kept telling people about it, and I found that many of my friends hadn’t heard of it. So, I want to recommend it in the show. You may know that SoundCloud is where DJs have mixed their mixes for years, so if you like electronic music, or if you listen to DJs releasing a lot of jazz, hip-hop, and reggae music, you will be in SoundCloud for a long time. Found a lot on it. In recent years, SoundCloud has changed its business model to focus more on people who create original works rather than people who release mixes and DJs. Therefore, many DJs have moved to Mixcloud.
Mixcloud has been around for almost as long as SoundCloud, but its platform is geared toward mixers. There are many amazing things out there. If you like hip-hop, if you like sour jazz, if you like the soul of the 1960s, if you like steady rock, if you like Psy trance Burning Man music, everything is there. You can follow the tags to find people you like, you can follow them, and you will see what they are listening to. You will get new recommendations. This is a global community, so there is a lot of stuff from Europe, Latin America and Asia. It’s amazing.
This is a platform, you can listen to it for free. There are paid levels, but you can get a lot for free. So, this is my suggestion. If you are looking for some of the adventures in the sonic one-hour long journey, check out Mixcloud. Lauren, do you have any suggestions?
