My music can be heard at ukuleleabe.com

I remembered that the song It's Gonna Rain by Steve Reich is a little more complex than I made it sound. It's a minimalist composition for magnetic tape about the end of the world, particularly with regard to the Cuban Missile Crisis. Steve Reich took a recording of a pentecostal preacher and played it on two tape machines, editing it and looping certain parts to create cool effects like phasing.

I think this was my favorite episode to do.

Intro and outro music is by Blue Dot Sessions
