Sarah Tiana invited me over to her apartment to give me the follow up to our last conversation. Don’t listen to this one without listening to episode 73, on which this is based. She’s doing a lot better now. Time and information has helped.

Episode Features




The Music

Pink has some sick songs. I know I’m not supposed to like her, but I do.


Sex Pistols


I love this version. Cake is one of the most underrated bands of the last 20 years. Even their B-sides are good.


Sea Change is an amazing breakup album. Just amazing. I heard it’s about his relationship with Winona Ryder. He said he couldn’t write about it for years afterwards because it still hurt too much. And when he was finally able to start expressing it, this is what he came up with.

    Sarah’s obsession with fucking “special forces” clouded her judgement.

      Because if he’s special forces, or even CIA, that gives him an excuse for lying and that means there’s a possibility that everything (the wife, the kids, the being broke) is a fabrication to help him keep his cover, and he REALLY DOES love her and want to be with her.

      She’s getting better, but you can hear in her voice that she’s desperately searching for an excuse to run away with this guy. The first podcast was just painful to listen to, because she was constantly coming out with these “GOTCHA!!!” moments exposing what a fraud the guy was, but she refused to take the next step.

      This is why you need to tell your friends when they are being manipulated before it gets to this level.
