“ALONE IN MOTION. You’re driving somewhere. You can’t remember where, but it doesn’t matter. You’ve got all the windows down, even the ones in back. The rushing air feels like a conversation with divinity. You’re smiling and you don’t know why. You’ve got nine minutes till this song ends and then, of course, there’s always the rewind button.”
This 70-minute podcast’s ostensibly subtitled “NASA’s Wrongly-Rejected Crew Wakeup Songs”, but actually this mix is meant to be heard in the 1st hour of your workday.
(apologies in advance for the AM radio-y equalization.)
