Diana Ross and the Supreme Court have really outdone themselves this time. America's most crafty "family" business no longer has to pay for employees' birth control. Congrats, nobody! But it all gets temporarily better because the incredibly handsome and talented Rhett Miller (@rhettmiller) of the Old 97s stops by to talk about how he saw Axl Rose wear a mumu while getting a foot massage and also to serenade us with a song. Check out his album here!

Erin & Bryan went to a Robyn concert and they’ve got the mullets to prove it! Too bad the Supreme Court is ruining everything by letting Hobby Lobby (Mrs. Lobby if you’re nasty) refuse to pay for its employees’ birth control. It’s a good thing we have guest Rhett Miller to serenade us with a song and help us forget our troubles.
Ross and Carrie spend five months undercover in a mysterious and delightful religious sect, where Jesus is an alien, purple robes are the outfit of choice, and global warming can be fixed by praying into a battery.

In the fall of 2001, Phil Elverum released the album The Glow, Pt 2 on K Records. Pitchfork named it the best album of the year. In this episode, Phil recounts how he created the first song on the record at Dub Narcotic Studio. He spoke with me from his home in Anacortes, Washington, about his love of being alone in the studio, evoking nature through music, and where the name The Microphones comes from. Plus a few words from Calvin Johnson, the founder of K Records. This episode is presented in conjunction with The Creators Project.
