 A/N: I plan on adding more takeaway analysis to this but thought this was a good start to share on

 

Katelan and I thought it might be fun and insightful to start dissecting some radio/podcasts and offer up our thoughts on here.  Feel free to listen to a show that you dig (or don't dig) and put your analysis up in whatever way you think might be helpful!

The subject of categories was given a wonderfully thoughtful treatment in this recent episode of Invisibilia.

 

This is a study of the "Extended Intro" (that's what I'm calling it - it is 6 whole minutes of creating the context for the episode - exceptional!).  There are 3 major pieces after this Extended Intro in which I won't cover because maybe you want to listen to the episode yourself.... and add your disection/analysis of those pieces.

I also partied a bit last night.

 

What do you think?
