Here are this week’s links/videos/items of interest based on topics discussed during tonight’s radio show.

I was honored to contribute to the final episode of Used Wigs, one of my favorite podcasts. Their 100th show has a lot of laughs and a lot of tears in it. You should listen.

Once you’re done with that, grab a new song by Trummors, the entire Dahlia Seed discography, the most recent Bully Pulpit album, Nothing covering Low and an EP by Chicago’s The Please & Thank Yous.

Back in a few weeks!
