It’s back. Welcome to the first installment of Aquarium Drunkard’s re-tooled podcast. Picking up where the Sidecar (Transmissions) left off, consider this new program a late night broadcast exploring pop culture through an esoteric lens, focusing on music, literature, film and other dispatches from parts unknown.

Beginning now, expect a new episode every other week. Our debut features Jason P. Woodbury’s interview with longtime AD favorite Will Oldham, AKA Bonnie “Prince” Billy, discussing two new albums: his collaboration with Bitchin’ Bajas, the New Age/ambient LP Epic Jammers and Fortunate Ditties and a collection of sessions he recorded with BBC legend John Peel, Pond Scum. Along the way, Oldham pontificates on a certain sci-fantasy blockbuster and discusses his contributions to the upcoming Day of the Dead collection — the mammoth Grateful Dead covers project spanning 59 tracks at nearly six hours.
