We’re very excited to have Caitlin Brodnick, the author of Dangerous Boobies, on this archival episode of Repeater. This episode was our second ever, recorded in December 2015! Caitlin is our neighbor, we’re roommates, and now we’re all friends!
Maris Kreizman (Slaughterhouse 90210) brought her favorite sad song with her: Concrete Blonde – Joey. Joey has been one of Maris’ favorites for years, and even sang it from a porch for the world to hear! We talk about how Maris found herself connecting to sad songs about complicated relationships and thinking she related to them on some level. We talk about aspirational sadness and the cathartic power that sad music has.
Two guests! One host! Oh, what a night! On this LIVE episode, Pat talks with Kiri Oliver and Heidi Vanderlee of the band Early Riser about a song they both love! With Evan out of town, Pat interviews Kiri and Heidi about “You Can Make Him Like You” by The Hold Steady.
Pat May joins us to talk about “Bramble Blast / Stickerbrush Symphony” from the video game Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest. That’s right, another Pat! Two Pats! Innovation! Pat May loves video games more than anything and truly loves the music of video games more than most things.
It’s part 2 of 2 in the “Pat in Los Angeles” series! We have Landon Charles Hughes (Comedian) on the show to talk about “Breathe Me” by Sia. This song connected with Landon in a significant way. The interview spans a wide variety of topics all with some pleasant birds chirping in the background and a dog on the couch.
On this very excellent episode of Repeater, we sit down with Annalise Domenighini, a social editor and music writer at Noisey, LIVE in front of an audience at QED in Astoria, Queens. Annalise brings with her the only good song in the world: “Africa” by Toto.
The incredible Tessa Hersh (UCB, RIOT) stops by to talk about “Dancing” by Elisa. This song hits everyone hard! We talk about friendships, relationships, sadness, and love.
The wonderful Geri Cole (writer, Sesame Street) stops by to talk about Arcade Fire’s immense song, “My Body Is A Cage.” We talk about album closers, living abroad, growing up, life changes, friendship, and love. It gets deep! Mikki Hommel returns to the show and plays a killer cover of “My Body Is a Cage.” She also plays an incredible improvised song and one of her original tunes!
