DFWaG Episode #29: "20NICETeen"

Many years since I was here- on the street I was passin' my time away. To the left and to the right, buildings towering to the sky. It's outta sight in the dead of night. Here I am, and in this city, with a fistful of dollars, and baby, you'd better believe… In this episode:
-Season Two
-A Message to The Haters
-“Bonjour”
-Steve’s Jazz Corner
AND MORE.

Well then. This was recorded on 10/14, and is one of our shortest episodes yet. We apologize for the absence: its been a rough couple of weeks.

-Columb’ohio, and Lovecraft’s English
-Tropical Tipples, and (I guess?) Tasty Teas
-“Lemme get a Big Boy"
-The Environment, Autonomy, and Body Horror in IHNMAIMS

DFWaG Episode #26: "Tales From Margaritaville"

A Sunday upload? Listen, "Mdweek Madness" didn’t really pan out, as we ourselves were wasting away in Margaritaville. Even still, welcome to DFWaG Magnum- extra long, extra dense, extra tangential, for your pleasure. This week we discussed Jimmy Buffett’s “Take Another Road”, and found ourselves taken aback by the earnest, unassuming nature of Jimmy’s writing style, and ideology. Also in this episode: 
-Negligible Irresponsibility 
-Echo of Nostalgia
-Steve’s Secession Selection 
-Vatican Goofin’
-Listener Shoutouts
-Wasting Away in Margaritaville
AND MORE.

DFWaG Episode #25: "Indiana Jones and The Stolen Podcast"

What’s really interesting about this episode, is how many times we begin to discuss our novella selection, only to be dragooned by American hero, and archeologist, Indiana Jones. Really, big part of this episode is Jared explaining the trajectory of the Disneyland/DisneySea attraction: Indiana Jones and the Temple of The Forbidden Eye. Additionally:
-Grand Coulee Lifestyle #LiveAuthentic
-Thank God for Jimmy Buffet, holy shit
-GADZOOKS/EGAD
-Friend of the Pod, R L Stine

MAY UPDATE

MAY UPDATE:
Hi, Jared here. 
I wanted to keep everyone posted on what is going on in our respective lives, and why episodes/uploads have become more sporadic. Hopefully this illuminates any mystery surrounding what the podcast stands to become, as well as what is currently keeping it from actualization.

DFWaG Episode #22: "At Swim-Two-Birds"

We’re back after a brief hiatus- don’t worry, more pod is soon to come. Moreover focusing on this week’s episode, we’ve really learned our lesson with reading Flann O’Brien/Brian O’Nolan for the podcast. These are grandiose works of satire, dynamic narrative structure, and by proxy impossible to relate to listeners without choking on our own descriptors. Sorry, we’ll be better:
-“OH NO”; Weed Goofin’
-Juice v. Juicing
-“This is a FULL SIZED BOOK”
-T A N G E N T I A L
-“At Swim”, O’Nolan’s Sense of Agency
-Steve Really Stumbles
AND MORE.

DFWaG Episode #20: "Mathilda"

This week, to re-establishing our proper Sunday schedule, we touch base on two stories- both of which we use to best discuss the cultural climate behind illness fetishization, and how sorrow manifests itself.

DFWaG Episode #16: "Concrete Island"

WARNING: so I (Jared) am a huge fan of J.G. Ballard, and wanted to go hog wild this week on his underrated classic, “Concrete Island”. Due to some heavy editorializing, moreover, we’ve found ourselves amidst the worst episode so far. Arguably worse than our second episode- you’ll see why:
-David Bruckner’s ‘The Ritual’ a Netflix Original
-Dream Book Adaptation
-Our Hosts Stumble Through Everything They Do
-‘Concrete Island’, Technology, and Social Strata
AND MORE.

This week we read “The Invention of Morel” by Adolfo Bioy Casares. What if we’re reliving a lifetime long since recorded- experiencing thoughts, emotions, daily happenings of a previous lifetime, doomed to repeat it even still? This week we get real spooky, real introspective, and we’d love it if you’d come along for the ride:
-The Swedish Chef and Jim Henson’s Propaganda.
-Specialty Sips
-Steve Has a Juice Dilemma
-Immortalization and Youtube Culture
AND MORE.
