“The episode so nice we recorded it twice.”

Due to an arcane technical glitch, the first recording of this episode didn’t actually happen. The machine said it was recording! But it was lying! So we got to record it a second time. Which brings up some interesting questions related to quantum physics and the fallibility of memory. Did any of you hear the first version? Was it better?

In the second half of the episode, we listen to and discuss ‘Nowness,’ the third song on Shannon’s new record. This is the thematic centerpiece of the album, and presents a good opportunity to talk about being present – an ever-more-applicable life skill in these turbulent times.
