Kevin talks about what it was like having a cat missing for 17 days. Phil & Kevin discuss technology writing and their sense of what it means when something “works.” Then they both just let go on everything they think about Billy Joel.

Note: The audio for roughly the first half is a bit tough at times, due to faulty mic placement. Our apologies—it gets better. We’re a bit rusty.

Graceland 25th Anniversary (Kind Of)

"I don’t like the idea that people who aren’t adolescents make records. Adolescents make the best records. Except for Paul Simon. Except for Graceland. He’s hit a new plateau there, but he’s writing to his own age group. Graceland is something new." - Joe Strummer interviewed by Richard Cromelin for the Los Angeles Times on January 31, 1988
