LAURIE BROWN AND PONDERCAST PRESENT MOON MERGE AT THE BENTWAY WITH RICH AUCOIN, BERNICE, CHOIR! CHOIR! CHOIR! AND JOSHUA VAN TASSEL ON SEPTEMBER 14
Put on your headphones for this one. Pondercast Episode 45 is the second instalment of summer-isms. Because we all can’t get enough of summer. We also can’t get enough time off to enjoy it. So here’s a free vacation day... for your head.
Shout out to sound artist Janna Graham for allowing us to use her field recordings of an east coast summer. You can find her on Twitter at @JannaGraham. Stay cool and think free....
