A show that used to be about being a better creative person and is now about being a better, creative person
Today's episode is about love, and vaccinations, and the fundamental impossibility of understanding your own past self.
Closing song: "International Women," Ivana XL
Today, Morgan and Zac do a deep dive on their own record, RELATIVE ISOLATION, which you can hear wherever music is streamed. I hope this episode will be, primarily, just a fun listening experience to end the year (or begin the new one) but secondarily I hope it's something that helps other creative people in some way. I love hearing about process -- it always provides me with a jumping-off point for my own creative processes -- and obviously I hope you do too, since this is literally just 90 minutes of our chaotic and fun recording process.
Happy Birthday, Isaac
Here's what your first year was like.
About the Bodega (Local Business)
Pairing well with Dagan Migirditch, co-founder of Liars Bench Beer Co.
Special thanks to Christi Little for helping me perfect this episode's title. Titus Andronicus Forever.
Here I Dreamt I Was An Architect
Season six finale. An interview with Rob Harbeson and a vaguely-connected little personal exorcism. Alternate title: "Don't Worry About The Government."
I remember initially thinking this season of the show would be 6 or 7 episodes long. This is episode 26. We might be back with Season 7 before the end of the year, but that sort of depends what happens next in the world.
Stay safe out there. Thanks for listening.
On The Line #14: What Are You Waiting For?
Taking a pause with Genevieve Aichele & Catherine Stewart (also featuring Suzana Mihajlica).
"On The Line" is a series of quickly-recorded and only lightly-edited phone conversations with artists, professionals, and other people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and other associated disasters.

The Last Podcast is good at being a podcast
I’ve been following Zac for years, and have come to a place that I feel genuinely confident in saying he is precisely one of my dearest long distance acquaintances.
Zac is a true artist; he plays within many mediums, but I’ve never seen this amount of effort and true dedication. Though his video work, (my first love), is so wonderful and brings me such joy, this podcast feels like a whole new caliber of brilliance. Each installment is worth your time, and following Zac’s thought process and journey through an episode is always entertaining and rewarding. His unique perspective is so sharp and witty, and you can sense his real care and kindness about whatever it is he points his lens at.
Add this podcast to your roster, you won’t regret it.
Genuine to its core
If you’re looking for a podcast that cares deeply about media and portraying the human experience in all its varied forms then the Last Podcast is for you. There is an obvious amount of thought and insight that goes into each episode which is wonderful, but it’s not the only thing that keeps me coming back. Each podcast is filled with joy and a passion for creativity that is infectious, even at its saddest points. It’s a testament to life’s abundant creative jumping off points, and a reminder of the accessibility of this medium if we’re brave enough to open up and reach for it.
