Welcome to the Temporary Fandoms Wrap Up. After we looked at the entire discography last year we have come back together to spend about the same amount of time looking solely at their amazing new Spoon album Lucifer on the Sofa.

Rejoining us are William Shunn, Emily Baldoni, and for the first time Tyler Darling (from the podcast “I turn my podcast on”. We talk our way through hot takes, slight detours and a lot of opinion. And we play a couple of tracks as well.

Full details can be found at

Thanks to Stylon Pilson and Taiko Taiko for the awesome theme music.
