Gobbledygeek episode 405, “Moonshadow and Slyfox,” is available for listening or download right here and on iTunes here.
Ah, youth. A time of joy and comfort, of excitement and adventure. Also pain and fear and anxiety and awkwardness and all that fun stuff. Spinning out of their recent conversation with senior British correspondent Wesley Mead, Paul and Arlo talk about nostalgia (Greek for “pain from an old wound,” according to Don Draper). They regale the listener with tales of their misbegotten youths, from chronic illness and cutting class to oddball rebellion and a very memorable chauffeur experience. Is any of this interesting? Who knows? We’re past episode 400 here, what do you expect?
Next: as always in these strange times, you’ll know when we do.
