Everyone Says ‘Hi’

“Relentlessly cheery…”

Everyone Says ‘Hi’
“You can always phone”

David Bowie never waves bye-bye, because “Everyone Says ‘Hi!’”

Cactus

“A progression of increasing intimacy…”

cement floor
“Sitting here wishing on a cement floor”

“Cactus?” They hardly know us. Today on the show!

A Better Future

“This is one of those episodes where there’s the potential to offend some people.”

God
“Down there below…”

Will we have any listeners left after this episode? We can only hope for “A Better Future!”

Afraid

“I wish I was a little bit taller…”

Do you believe in Beatles, or do you just believe in John? We discuss Bowie’s ironic twist on the comforts of delusion in the face of self-doubt. We stumble through the lyrics to Skee-Lo’s 1995 hit song “I Wish.” Thomas forgets the name of Psych-101 shibboleth Maslow. (Bad college graduate!) And just how hard is it to lock Mick Jagger and Keith Richards in a room together?

Gather your resolve, and confront (or at least ignore) your deepest existential fears. It’s From A To Ziggy!
