If each episode of a podcast is an organ, an essential piece of a larger body, then this is an appendix to that body: a non-essential but still uniquely formed bonus episode. In it you’ll hear a hypnotic induction as performed and scored by the hypnotherapist Daniel Ryan. Ryan was featured on the Organist last week in our episode about the relationship between our bodies, our minds, and sound. One last note— it’s probably best if you stop operating heavy machinery while you’re listening to this podcast.

How to Be in Two Places at Once: The Firesign Theatre in the US and Vietnam As four comedians trained in poetry and psy-ops, Firesign Theatre created dense, album-length art-objects that could take multiple spins to understand. Their comedy took the form of inscrutable and often abrasive soundscapes that reviewers were as likely to call “frightening” as “funny.” This week, we explore how these albums were listened to collectively: in groups, teenage house parties, poet John Ashbery’s pot smoke-filled living room, and military bases in Vietnam.
