Episode 35 – A Reminder
It’s the holiday season and we have a special gift for you: a jam-packed episode where we look back at the 2010s and reminisce on all the good times, the bad times, and the meme times. Remember how you felt when you first saw Thom dancing in that bowler hat? Remember listening to King of Limbs for the first time? Remember the excitement to the lead-up of A Moon Shaped Pool? Also, we chat about Ed (or EOB) and his lengthy single, more intriguing Thom interviews, a mysterious package that Kristina received via air mail, and of course our favorite music of this year and our predictions for Radiohead’s 2020. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
Episode 34 – Electioneering
It’s time for our third annual spooooky Halloween episode and we’re digging into the most terrifying of all topics: Radiohead and POLITICS! Join us as we journey to the beginning of Radiohead injecting politics into their songs, figure out when Thom became obsessed with climate change, and try our very best to explain what’s going on with Brexit. Also, we have an alarming amount of news in the ever-growing pile, including Thom’s extended tour and delightful interviews, EEEDDD’S first mesmerizing single, Jonny’s all-encompassing new piece (and perverse love for the recorder), and Stanley’s stunning new book!
Episode 33 – Where Bluebirds Fly
Jukebox musicals are all the rage these days so we wondered what a Radiohead musical would be like. We enlisted the services of our friend and musical wiz Matt Roi Berger to pitch some possible Radiohead Broadway shows and oh boy, does it get intense. Plus, we briefly dive into the history of pop musicals and chat about Anima again, Thom’s possible beefs, his upcoming song for Motherless Brooklyn, and a delightful 90s mashup. VIVA FOREVER!
Episode 32 – (Ladies & Gentlemen, Thank You for Coming)
The day has finally come: Thom Yorke’s third solo record, Anima, has arrived. We were fortunate enough to see an IMAX screening of the one-reeler and we’re still in awe! In this episode we chat about the mysterious marketing campaign, the film’s beautiful images and fantastic choreography, and how the stunning album itself made us feel...pretty good! Plus we wade through Thom’s enlightening interview with Zane Lowe and board the hype train for the possible Kid A/Amnesiac anniversary release. Guys, don’t forget how lucky you are!
Episode 31 – How I Made My Millions
All alarms and many surprises, we listened to all 18 hours of the Ok Computer minidiscs and have plenty to discuss! We share our favorite moments, the oddest sounds and the funkiest jams and try to unravel the sticky plot of how this gigantic leak made its way onto the internet. Plus, we chat about Black Mirror’s recent use of Radiohead, Thom (or his smoking doppelgänger) being spotted in NYC and Kristina’s eternal love of spooky scores. Also, a special minidisc version of song sommelier!
Episode 30 – the Daily Mail
This is a round up! It’s been about a month since our last episode and there’s so much Radiohead news and happenings that we had to record a whole episode to get through it all. We chat about Ed’s upcoming solo record and his love of birds, Thom’s foray into “classical” music and his great interview with CRACK Magazine (not Cracked), a violent video game trailer inexplicably featuring an intense Radiohead cover, and much much more. Plus, an airplane themed song sommelier!
