One Bad Mother
John Hodgman

On a very special Halloween episode of One Bad Mother, we talk zombie-apocalypse-readiness! (...A.K.A. emergency preparedness!) Clearly, we are prepared to have a three-day-supply of water and eat people. Theresa solves bedwetting forever and Biz spins a genius moment out of anything that will spin. Plus, we summon the ghost of John Hodgman to judge us as moms, only to discover that the real monster is the creator of baby food puree pouches!

Throwing Shade
Happy Halloqueen! This year, Erin and Bryan are giving you three looks - classic Halloween realness, True Detective realness and Gone Girl realness. But that's not nearly as spooky as how the Vatican feels about female bishops or how Republican Congressman from Texas Louie Gohmert feels about gays. Spooky!

Song Exploder No. 21: Julia Holter

Song Exploder
Julia Holter

Julia Holter studied composition, and in the song “Horns Surrounding Me,” she arranges not only acoustic and electronic instruments, but also layers of ambient field recordings and background noise. The song was released in 2013 on her acclaimed album Loud City Song. In this episode, Julia deconstructs the recording, and talks about what she did to evoke a feeling of fear in both the music and the way she sang, changing her voice on different parts of the song to create character and texture.

Buy "Horns Surrounding Me" on iTunes.

The song playing when Brian Ferry sings is Roxy Music's "Love Is the Drug."

Song Exploder t-shirts are now available here.
