In this episode, Rhyd Wildermuth, the editor of Gods & Radicals, tells the story of the origin of the organization both as a website and a publisher. He also gives a detailed preview of the upcoming first edition of the print journal. Learn how winter is a time of insurrection, and how gods seem to be involved in revolt, among many other tasty things.
This one begins with an ambient recording I made on Munjoy Hill, the Portland peninsula, on the 4th of July. There was a large crowd (many tens of thousands of people), a brass band playing through a huge PA system, and of course patriotic explosions in the sky. There is also the sound of Casco Bay, recorded from Willard Beach in South Portland.
Rhyd’s voice was recorded over the phone, and enhanced to sound like commands coming over a transmitter.
Percussion was by Alfred Lund, same as in episode 1. Piano performed by James Lindenschmidt. Produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered by James Lindenschmidt for Crafted Recordings.
