    WR632: Cole Peters

    On this episode, I talked sound art, field recordings, tapes and more tonight with experimental artist Cole Peters, who released a couple of limited-edition cassettes over the past few months.As you'll note in the intro, the podcast gods were out to get me on this one, but even technical difficulties aplenty couldn't stop me from getting this conversation into your earholes, so bear with some less-than-ideal audio -- the interview is worth it. Thanks.
