Thank you very, very much to my guest, Rachel Jayson. You can follow her on Twitter and Instagram, her Instagram is beautiful. You can visit armyoftoys.com and jaggery.org if you wanna check out either of her bands.
And as you might have noticed, we played some wonderful music in this episode. Very specifically, Russian Sailor’s Dance from the Russian ballet The Red Poppy, composed by Reinhold Glière, Serenade for Strings by Pyotr Tchaikovsky, and Nimrod Variation, which you are listening to right now, composed by Edward Elgar, part of his larger work The Enigma Variations.
The engineer for this interview was Jimmy Garver. For all of the music you heard in this episode, you can go to amandapalmer.net/podcast.
