Toadcast #246 – The Arithmecast

So, after a couple of slightly misnumbered podcasts – 245 coming after 243, and then 244 having to come after that to try and correct the mistake, hoping two wrongs might, if not make a right exactly, at least gloss over the original wrong somewhat – we are back on track with #246.  In the right order and everything.

There’s no real theme to this week’s podcast, although we have a fair bit of new stuff in there – some by The Walkmen, The Douglas Firs, The Spook School, Monster Island and a couple of others.

    ok, i think i should have counted how many times you said soonish or any word ending with -ish for that matter in this podcast. i was laughing every single time!i liked the glass animals and the douglas firs tracks. that freak folk podcast you mentioned sounds a really interesting idea. you’re going to put some Tiger Lillies and Pale Young Gentlemen and the likes in it?or maybe they’re not freak folk?anyway, i am already wondering what that cast will sound like.

    I don’t know Tiger Lillies, but Pale Young Gentlemen are a great shout. I haven’t thought of their stuff for years now – great band.
