    A Thousand Words - Episode Two: The Little Mermaid

    Jessica, Ron, and Stan return to discuss the famed Thomas Kinkade painting, The Little Mermaid.  We discuss the medium used by the "Painter of Light," as well as thematic use of candy coloring.  We ponder the distinct lack of Ursula and The Chef and how they relate to Jaw 4 and Deep Space 9.  
    Be sure to listen, look, taste, and be touched as we go further than any other comedy podcast into the world of art and art things.

    Syndicated - Twin Peaks Part 1

    Diane, I've loaded up a new podcast called "Syndicated".  It's a show where the hosts just ramble on about old TV shows.  They call it the "TV Podcast for the Lasped Viewer" but can never decide if it's a good tagline or not. Between you and me, I think it's a damn fine description. 

    Join Nathan, Luke and Andy as they take a trip to Twin Peaks, a town with murder, coffee, and a lady who carries a log. In this first episode, we'll discuss the first season, and then follow up with a two-part discussion of season two in the weeks that follow.

    Welcome Crosstawk listeners!  This is our new show A Thousand Words.  Hosted by Jessica Carter, Ron Lubovich, and BOP's own Stan Ferguson.  Recorded and produced entirely in tropical Nashville, TN, you can just taste the butter and country music dripping from it.

    Discover Music Project: Episode 65

    DMP has been on an unplanned hiatus lately, but we're back now and have many more episodes planned for 2015 and beyond! The revival starts with Jonny and frequent co-host Taylor presenting the varied and surprising music of Jenny Lewis. We first discovered her as an actress, but she is far more impressive as a singer and writer of songs that balance honesty, sadness, and defiance, often all at once. This retrospective covers her career through stints with Rilo Kiley and The Postal Service, but much of our favorite material comes from just last year. It's a good bet that Jenny Lewis will be making great music for a very long time to come, so we hope this episode can be your primer, or maybe just a refresher on why she is a musical force.

    1. Head Underwater (The Voyager)
    2. She's Not Me (The Voyager)
    3. Nothing Better (Give Up -- with The Postal Service)
    4. Silver Lining (Under the Blacklight -- with Rilo Kiley)
    5. A Man / Me / Then Jim (More Adventurous -- with Rilo Kiley)
    6. Rise Up With Fists!! (Rabbit Fur Coat -- with The Watson Twins)
    7. Acid Tongue (Acid Tongue)
    8. Sing a Song for Them (Acid Tongue)
    9. Slippery Slopes (The Voyager)
    10. Just One of the Guys (The Voyager)
    11. A Better Son/Daughter (The Execution of All Things -- with Rilo Kiley)

    Carole King -- I Feel the Earth Move (Tapestry)
