We start this 40th episode of Something Like with a story shared by a dear friend, about a psychoanalytically profound dig in her garden ending with a mysterious and inspiring omen. We’ll then go about turning things around in our hands, hearts, and minds, moving around ideas to understand their hidden contexts, what’s lurking in their crevices. We’ll start with 15th century polyphony, work our way over to none other than Bobby McFerrin, and wend our way by Howie Lee, Jjjjjerome Ellis, P.M. Tummala, Marnie Weber, and others right back to where Something Like began 40 whole episodes ago: Robert Ashley’s Private Parts. Make sure to listen all the way to the end, as there’s a special surprise lurking around the 1:55:00 zone.

  • As ever, Something Like’s jingle comes courtesy of my dear friend and collaborator, Roger 3000.
