  • We start off with Chez Thomas, by Charles Delarue

  • Sneeuwland by Oskar Schuster.

  • Judith by Jacob David.

Notes

  • I read a bunch of articles on Jackie, but if you're looking for one-stop-shopping that can send you off in other research avenues, I'd probably suggest this article by Zack Harold in Lapham's Quarterly.

Episode 138: Sixty Starlings

The Memory Palace is a proud member of Radiotopia.

Music

  • Blink from Hiroshi Yoshimura

  • Which comes in and out of Bjolukor Tonlisterakoli Reykjanesbaejar's version of Sigur Ros' Hoppipolla.

  • Love Token by Elena Kats-Chernin, performed by Tamara Anna Cislowska

  • And Joanna Brouk playing Maggi's Flute - Lifting Off

Notes

  • There's
    a ton out there about the sixty starlings, the most comprehensive comes
    from Stephen Marche's book, How Shakespeare Changed Everything.

  • I also found Kim Todd's [Tinkering with Eden,](http://%22Tinkering%20With%20Eden:%20A%20Natural%20History%20of%20Exotic%20Species%20in%20America) particularly useful.

On the 80th Anniversary of the night 20,000 Americans attended a Nazi Rally in the heart of Manhattan, the Memory Palace is teaming up with Radio Diaries. We’ll hear their new story about that rally after we listen back to a Memory Palace episode that took place on that same evening, in which some Nazis get punched.

Learn more about this evening at www.radiodiaries.org.
