Best podcast ever. Tony Youngblood is a modern audio master.
Pretty great, pretty futuristic. Excellent performances by Nashville's outsider scene, and some very crazy audio from Tony and his web of weirdo music provocateurs.

Grateful to be living in Music City, where all music and thoughtful sound finds its place -- even in the middle of the morning on Sunday in a little studio in what feels like the basement caverns of Vanderbilt University. It's inspired and free -- and certainly intangible as all get-out. This episode was great fun to create. The ecstatic sounds you hear were all reactions to some incredible backrubs that Cody was giving to the women. I'm still working on his techniques.
