Okay, I'm not sure if John actually reads these but I'm legitimately annoyed that this song is never going to be finished and released. It's a ridiculously good song.

the album john is referring to near the start as being "released backwards" is probably Pullhair Rubeye by Avey Tare and Kria Brekkan. an amazing album either direction (i definitely prefer it forwards myself)

I really like the format. I didn't know the mountain goats beforehand and I'm not sure I'd say I'm a fan yet but I'm definitely getting there. I absolutely love the format of going through an album song by song and providing audio commentary.
