Realer Than The Realest Thing Ever

realRealer Than The Realest Thing Ever
(Wherein I make a valiant attempt to keep things “real”.  Originally broadcast in 13 August 2011 on KPSU.)

From the moment I first started assembling the original Philosophy Rock episode (The Truth Is Marching In), I knew I wanted to do sequels to this show.  There is so much music that is outside of the usual “I love you / I’m sad about you” range of pop music, and there are a number of artists that really love to embrace the deeper meanings in the world.  As a armchair philosopher myself, this is a perfect match.

In this episode, I focus on The Real, The Fake, and everything in between.  I had a lot of fun combing through lectures on Youtube.com, and I found enough material for at least two more shows.  I’m pretty proud of this one, but I do recommend that you listen on headphones.  This is one to pay attention to.

Enjoy.  See you in seven.
