I promise this won’t be a series of five posts in a row from me. From now on, they will be spaced out. On that note, here is my podcast for my episode all about the Big Apple! Just like my Iceland episode, I did find it a bit weird to do a show on a place I have never been to, but I better get used to that, unless I plan on sticking to the Southwest and Central/South America for the rest of the year. I still don’t quite have the right words to describe how I feel about New York; in the episode I describe it by the romantic appeal the city has, stemming from its importance in the 20th century. From being the first place for nearly all European immigrants to the US, to holding the UN headquarters, and all the way to the tragedy of 9/11, New York has never been far from the forefront of world events. I chose to not discuss 9/11 during the show, as I felt it was a bit too heavy of a topic for me to talk about. I certainly wasn’t as happy with this one as I was with Colombia–I just had nowhere near as much to say. Now, with that in mind, I certainly had more than enough music, over three hour’s worth to pick from. This was one of the harder episodes to narrow down, partially because I would have been content just playing an hour of The Strokes. I had to cut out quite a bit of music, including Talking Heads, Interpol, The Ramones, and many more. Either way, I was happy with my choices, and will leave both the podcast (yes, once again with around 20 seconds of dead air–sorry) and the playlist here.
