Wandering Like Gandalf: Intro to the Podcast

In my premiere episode, I describe my hopes for the show, its purposes and goals, my philosophy of public discourse, where the show's name comes from, and give a brief rundown on myself.
Thank you for listening!
Today I introduced the show by discussing its purposes and goals, outlining my philosophy of public discourse, and giving some brief biographical information about myself.

I shared the source of the show's name: the song, "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding," written by Nick Lowe. I think it's one of the greatest rock songs of the last fifty years, and one of my very favorites.
I urged y'all to listen to one or both of the first recordings of the song if you're not familiar with it:
Nick Lowe's band, Brinsley Schwarz, made the original 1974 recording.
Elvis Costello & the Attractions made this music video of their 1978 cover, which I fell in love with at age 16.

I also mentioned Nick recently performing live with Los Straitjackets a slowed down version.

Bonus: An energetic live performance including  Bruce Springsteen, John Fogerty, the Dixie Chicks, Jackson Browne, Eddie Vedder, Dave Matthews, and Bonnie Raitt.

I also mentioned in passing the beautiful "Everyone," by Van Morrison.
