A podcast discussion between Phil Dzikiy and Kevin Purdy about sundry topics.

Sep 5, 2016

Phil and Kevin talk about theme parks, amusement parks, and their love of stimulating lines and air conditioning. Then they talk about Gawker and how it's totally gone now, and why that matters and does not matter and both at the same time. And then they talk about The Tragically Hip's last concert which, yeesh, tears and appreciation. The whole thing has a surprising number of feels and insights.

Phil & Kevin run the gamut: Pokemon Go, golf as an Olympic sport, their lists of Top 10 Beck Songs, and why 1960s vocal groups seemed to add imaginary members to their number.

Episode 41: We're Gonna Have a Hill Downtown!

Kevin wrote a thing about his year in review, and it involves a mid-life crisis, wondering what you're good at, trying to work without expecting fame. Phil knows a thing or two about that.

Episode 40: The New Wireless Transmission Enthusiast Album



Phil and Kevin talk to each other and record it, for the the first time since February 2014. The men were slightly rusty. The Skype connection was if-y at first but got better (next time, we'll dual-record). Kevin's dog was a bit prance-y. Phil's son couldn't find Batman. But there were things to be discussed. Like the new Radiohead album! And HeroQuest! And everything that happened since the last episode. EVERYTHING.

Intro: Two men on Skype in New York State

Phil does not buy CDs anymore?

Radiohead! Album!
