This episode is an exploration of song (aka "space-craft") as a tool with which to navigate landscapes and mindscapes, and as a means through which to gain entranced entrance into the mystic/mythic dimensions of the psyche. Travis is a true troubador, and together we explore the world of songcrafting, lyricism, the realms of fae, and the graceful race of ugly goblins that dance around in his mind.
(Serving suggestion: try listening through headphones)
