    Razorcake Podcast #214  with yours truly

    I never manage to put together a podcast with much of a unifying theme, other than “I really like these songs.” But that doesn’t make the choices any less meaningful. 

    What I am here to offer you is a distilled aural representation of my listening habits the past couple months. These are songs that were stuck in my head. Songs I’ve put on repeat at work when I’m having a shitty day. Ones I turn up during traffic to give me something invigorating to yell about. 

    They are what my brain’s been surviving on lately.
