Episode 135: Revolutions

The Memory Palace is a proud member of Radiotopia.

Music

  • We start off with an absolute banger from my old friends in Lightning Bolt, their track King Kandy.

  • Then an old favorite, Blues to Elvin from the unstoppable, Coltrane Plays the Blues.

  • We move to Everything is an Illusion by Kaada

  • Hear Rolling by Collectress

  • And finish out on The Dog by Group Listening.

Notes

  • I read quite a bit for this one but nothing was more helpful (or more charming) than Save Womens Lives History of Washing Machines by Lee Maxwell, who bills himself on the cover as "Collector of Old and Unusual Washing Machines." God bless Lee and his patient wife.

Music
* We hear a segment of Holding Pattern, by Loscii.
Secrets you Could Sift, by Mr. Maps.

Episode 132 (Ida Lewis)

The Memory Palace is a proud member of Radiotopia.

Music

Notes

  • Many of my favorite things I read for this piece were contemporary newspaper tributes upon her death in 1911. They’re easy to find.

  • By far the most useful thing I read was Lenore Skomal’s *The Lighthouse Keeper’s Daughter: The Remarkable True Story of American Heroine, Ida Lewis. *It’s very well researched and highly readable.

Episode 131 (Lost Locusts)

The Memory Palace is a proud member of Radiotopia.

Music

  • The music on this one comes from High Aura'd, a project from my old friend, John Kolodij. The main drone piece is All the Spirits that Dance. The beginning and end were composed specifically for this episode.

Notes

  • I read a lot of articles from a lot of sources on this one, but the linchpin here is Jeffrey Lockwood's book that, to my mind, convincingly solves the mystery of the vanishing locusts.
