Holy crap, folks. I was mere hours away from unleashing the most ambitious episodes of Everything is Awesome today, all based around Opening Day of baseball season. I slaved over it like hot coals, amplifying quiet bits, bringing down the background noise, making little hits to explain certain things, adding music, and cutting out stretches of dull chatter, all to bring you a classic episode, one for the history books.
Alas, I have failed you. But I promise you that someday I will have the nerve to brave the frustrating waters of Audacity again to bring you an episode you won't forget. To those who appeared on this episode, Ed Cedras and Todd Iverson, I humbly beseech thee to stay tuned and remain loyal friends of the show. I will be forever in your debt.
Your faithful servant,
Due to catastrophic Audacity-related events, we are forced to inflict upon you our second(ish) episode, Episode 2.1 The ReHalloweening. It's a lot of fun, and features one of my favorite Tacoma artists, Evan Main. Dig into it, and maybe if I stop beating my computer with a sledgehammer the lost Baseball episode will make it back into the rotation. Good day to you, friendos!
Hey hey, friendos! This week's question has to do with baseball season starting again. What are some of your best/earliest memories of baseball season, and why? If you're not a baseball fan, tell us one of your beloved spring/summer rituals from childhood.
In which Jeff and Shakim discuss a multitude of important topics while chilling most relaxedly at Mailman Studios, Associate Producer Hilary Brown takes an active part in the dialogue, Michigan State v Louisville goes into overtime, Jeff is embarrassed by the multiple technical challenges associated with this podcast, Shakim begins a promising new financial venture, and more!
Songs included in this week's episode: "Close Your Eyes (and Count to Fuck)" - Run the Jewels ft. Zack de la Rocha, and a clip from the Metronome appearance of Dedric Clark & the Social Animals
