Okay. So. Today’s Episode is MONUMENTAL. Both in terms of the ambitious scope of our topic, and the awesome guest!
Lets say I build you a nice time machine, and I send you back to the very early universe. Back when the universe was just a bath of electrons and protons and photons bouncing around: a plasma. You would hear a sound (Hey look! the sound has been recreated and posted to the internet!). And when the universe cooled enough, and the electrons and protons coupled up; these sound waves turned into the centers of gravitational collapse: forming galactic superclusters.
In other words: Music provided the blueprints for the structure of the universe. MONUMENTAL!
ALSO. our guest today is the Indie Punk Rocker, our guest is TED LEO! the guy from the intro-song (Tell Balgeary, Balgury is Dead)! Ted is super smart, and this show is awesome! A music video on his newest album is notorious! Buy his ALBUMS, follow him on twitter, go see him play, and tell him Ben sent you!
