(don’t go back to) rockville – r.e.m.
story: exile behind the cheddar curtain
this must be the place (naive melody) – talking heads
I’ve actually told this story once or twice when we were a mere mortal radio show.
It’s a true story I’ve told countless times IRL over the years.
A few years back, I told the story during a presentation at work.
You can still watch the video on YouTube, but the sound quality is not great.
Preparing to tell that story in front of a crowd inspired me to rethink how I tell it. I like to think the added context makes the story breathe, and that it could easily fit in amongst the many stories I’ve enjoyed over the years on The Moth or This American Life.
I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed telling it.
Here’s to the next hundred episodes!
