Latest Episodes

Episode 45: Improvisations

Jay takes a little tour, in the style of this podcast. It concludes with a song from Mexico.

Episode 44: Carried Off

Jay ends this podcast with a chorus, a heavenly chorus, carrying us off into the eternal blue.

Episode 43: Waltzing Around

Jay indeed plays a waltz -- a spooky one. He also talks about our censorious culture, personal responsibility, peculiarities of language, and more.

Episode 41: Keeping Your Hopes Up

Saudi Arabia, American politics, an age of disruption, baseball, China, Russia, music -- Jay runs a gamut. Among the musicians heard is Taylor Swift.

Episode 40: Pick Up the Pace

Jay talks about politics and music. We hear from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, which has just had a name change, and from a late, great Spanish soprano.

Episode 38: Feel the Buzz

Jay starts out with a little music, including the one about the bee. Then he gets into some political issues -- before ending with golf, tennis, and, again, music.
