I started song.land podcast one year ago on October 8, 2018. I share a special episode tonight to commemorate the anniversary occasion.
As usual, it’s filled with passionate songs that might be hard to follow but are full of emotion. Enjoy the interpretation if you can make it work, and enjoy the trance if it takes you there!
- I play the same guitar that Andy Dwyer plays on Parks and Rec. See a screenshot over at the Vulture.
- At 18 minutes, I sing a song from the perspective of a tuna fish who’s son was taken. Tuna fish can live up to 30 years, and they are fished constantly. It’s inspired by The sea is running out of fish, despite nations’ pledges to stop it by Todd Woody in National Geographic.
- In that same song, I also tie living as a fish to living in the financial inequality based off this opinion piece in the New York Times by David Leonhardt: The Rich Really Do Pay Lower Taxes Than You.
- In the song at 30 minutes, I mention this TED talk: How the worst moments in our lives make us who we are by Andrew Solomon.
I’m proud to have one year of this podcast done. At no point have I even tried to make this a marketable podcast, so thank you for all who have put up with its many rough edges.
My goals for the coming year with song.land:
- Perform song.land in front of people at least three times by summer 2020.
- Test ways to play this with other band members by spring 2020.
- Have a regular intro for the podcast by fall 2020.
- Hit 1,000 subscribers next year, fall 2020.
