Podcast 15: Thaumatrope


On this fifteenth episode, Emily & Alan talk about one of their favorite albums, "Thaumatrope," by Marah in the Mainsail. Stealing (ummm, borrowing) the format from the podcast Long Play, they go through the album song by song, discussing the lyrics and music.

And then they cover listener feedback, most of which is pretty awesome. Because Dorkness listeners are pretty awesome.

NOTE: although the discussion in this episode is "rated PG," the underlying material discussed includes intense images of violence, depression, cannibalism, and suicide.

  1. An interesting episode, on a topic I wouldn't have guessed I'd be interested in, which is what makes this one of my favorite podcasts. "Thaumatrope" doesn't really sound like my cup of tea, musically, but I very much enjoyed your discussion of the themes in this album, made, as you say, "by thoughtful, deep, and insightful people", a description that wouldn't be amiss for the two of you. I will visit the Marah in the Mainsail website, and take a listen for myself. Thanks.
