Great stuff

Anyone who stars off a episode devoted to soundtracks with praise for Ivor Slaney gets a solid recommendation from me. This podcast is wonderfully explorative and insightful.

It's just the best

How can someone so apparently thoughtful and sensitive have so many tales of wreckless abandon? It's the story of the artist and this is told brilliantly.

By far my favourite podcast, it's so understated and succinct - the straightforward manner of telling stories about drugs, self-searching and wandering adventures is awesome.

Emil is a true artist and this podcast reflects his life and work. His use of language like 'my best friend' and 'the criminal returns' - it's so funny and often so paradoxical to the narrative.

I could go on.

Whethever this represents - catharsis or art - it's the best of the medium and I can't get enough. Great work.

YES

Usually other peoples intoxiaction stories are sheet. However, Emil nails it. longer episodes would go down a treat. Also random americana music episodes is a nice change to my listening. chuurrr
