Ode On Drag City

 

Thanks to some diligent internet-ing by a faithful listener, we found some information on Burrel Padgett, mentioned in our first episode, via his great grand-daughter! Then, Jay gets all James Lipton and grills Patrick. He asks the hard questions. He gets soft answers. Sommer Browning, Noah Eli Gordon, and Joshua Marie Wilkinson read us poems! Then, to our good fortune, we include an excerpt of a longer interview between Patrick and Rian Murphy from Drag City Records. This interview was dreamt up during Patrick’s tenure as Employee of the Month at Carbon Copy Magazine, but it was just too huge, too full of wonder and sadness and dark, ancient laughter, for a blog post. The full interview will run in a print issue of Carbon Copy! This is a Talus, Or Scree exclusive! While most of the discussion will be in the magazine, some of it appears only on the podcast! Our deepest love and gratitude to both outfits for the opportunity. And just when you thought it was all over, Pookahontas sings us all home with a classic whose title, coincidentally, is what Jay says to Patrick at the end of every conversation they have.
