S02 E39: The Call

In what some marketing mavens might call a BONUS EPISODE, we sit down with SURP alumnus Adam Bentley and talk about his new film project, Call of the City. Wow... we suddenly sound like adults. It's a neat conversation about the draw of the city, film-making, and Internet fund-raising. Cheers.

S02 E37: Off Track

For the record, our clever little title for this episode in no way reflects a sudden decrease in the quality of the Awkward Silences Radio Show (I'm pretty sure that's impossible - Ha! *rimshot). Rather, this week we talk about some serious issues that worry us, like transit planning problems; leaks, freedom of speech and the Internet; and ups-and-downs of city life and modern society. All this, and a special guest appearance by Ms. Sally Struthers! Enjoy!


Paul Simon - Kodachrome
Billy Joel - The Longest Time
Katy Perry - Teenage Dream
Crystal Castles - Crimewave
Chilliwack - Fly By Night
Sharon, Lois and Bram - A Train is Coming
Lissy Trullie - Self Taught Learner
Maurice and the Zodiaks - Stay (Just a Little Bit Longer)
Dido - Thank You
