Episode 198: It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like an Existential Crisis

As we hurtle inevitably towards the holiday season and the end of 2018, our usually-jolly co-hosts take an episode to cover some music that speaks to the melancholy that many experience at this time of year. “Reason to Think Aloud” by Dan Mangan is a slow burn of a song containing some poetic lines about loneliness and despair, while “Christmas Lights” by Paul Baribeau is a more frantic tune that uses simple words to deliver its emotional gut-punches.

Warning: this episode gets a little heavy! We hope you will fast forward, pause, or skip this one altogether if you need to.
