James and I recorded an episode of Variable Bitrate together in Chicago. Unfortunately, it was shit. Time constraints and the weariness of walking and talking for 3 hours around Navy Pier didn't allow us to do the thing justice. I still wanted him on the show, so we did it a week after we got home.
As long as I've known him, James has been inextricably tied to the band Modern Baseball in ways that I didn't fully understand. This episode should provide some context to that association and James' own perception of that entaglement.
