If you’ve ever been to the races, you may have seen a race where one of the horses goes off slowly. He doesn’t stumble out of the gate; rather, he lollygags, taking in the sights, smelling the fresh cut of the infield, letting the pack get a dozen or so lengths ahead for the first part of the race. After a bit of this our boy decides to kick it into gear so he can see what all the fuss is about at the front of the pack. With luck he gets there before the race is done.
Well, this is kinda what we do in episode 98. We kick things off with one of our new-ish segments, which isn’t fine-tuned to our usual perfection (ahem). But we soon catch up and start plowing through the field, challenging for the lead until the end. You can tell us if we’ve won or not.
Listen to it here.

Great podcast as usual. Let me just say that your description of Nick Cave's latest album was brilliant. Exactly the way I feel while listening. While Cave has been dark through most all of his career, this just seems next level dark. I was at first reminded of some of the darker tracks from Pink Floyd's The Wall...Mother, Good Bye Blue Skies, etc. but after a couple of plays Nick just sucks you down with him and you feel the misery first hand, then he rolls you around in it for good measure. Beautiful record.
Anyways just wanted to compliment you on another great episode and absolutely perfect review of Skeleton Tree.
On to 100!
