Season 1 Episode 1 Feb 2, 2016

Enumclaw

Wherein we welcome you to the Sub Pop Podcast (welcome!) and try to explain ourselves; talk to the multi-talented Cat Harris-White (of THEESatisfaction) and Lacey Swain (Sub Pop's Director of Licensing) about Martin Scorcese and auditioning for a TV show; hear from Shearwater's Jonathan Meiburg about the book he's writing, the striated caracara, world travel and the Thomas J. Watson Fellowship, Jet Plane and Oxbow (the new Shearwater album), and how it all ties together; and get a sneak (audio) peek at episode two's guests, Noel and Jessica from Mass Gothic (get your non-elastic pants ready). As always, with our hosts Alissa Atkins and Arwen Nicks from the Sub Pop Podcast broomcloset studio and burlap-lined room.

Jonathan Meiburg sat down with WNYC Soundcheck’s John Schaefer to talk about Jet Plane and Oxbow, and some of his recent travels. Listen to the results (you’ll be glad you did!).

More info on the striated caracara, the “crow on a falcon chassis” Jonathan studies, and the bird that figures heavily in his upcoming book.

This is the video of Jeff (human) and Tina (caracara) that Jonathan mentions, taken at the “Two Flags” that is Woodlands Park in Devonshire, England.
