Ausculation of the heart album cover
This is the 100th episode of A Thick Mist so I figured I’d do something a little special. I did an entire episode with no music. Everything I played is a field recording, spoken word, sound effects, etc. There’s only one exception: the Reese Williams record, which is intended to be musical in nature but is made of the widest range of human vocalizations that I thought it fit well here.

I only added time stamps for the talk breaks and the beginning of each section because identifying the rest of the times would have been damn near impossible. Also, most of the time I played excerpts, so even when it says something like “Side B”, I only played part of the full side.

Thanks for listening. Here’s to 100 more.
