This week, we conclude the Ultimate Parker Project with Crank 2! Rhea talks comics, Destiny responds to an old AV Club article, and we have a lot of feelings about that Scarlett Johansson album full of Tom Waits covers. We also discuss the weird world of ASMR, goosebump music, and shitty media from our childhood.
Spoiler Alerts for the Following:
Corrections: Guided by Voices has released 18 albums. Destiny said Midnight Train to Terror when she meant Night Train to Terror. The Ride song in Doom Generation is called "Leave Them All Behind." Destiny got the name of the ASMR youtuber wrong, it's not Soundscapes; it's Sound Sculptures. The Boxcar Children were originally published in 1924, reissued in the '40s, and the first 19 were written by Gertrude Chandler Warner. We Googled around and found at least 1 ASMR-related podcast: ASMR Radio. The Baby's Day Out sequel never happened.
