The ball of energy known as Amanda Giobbi (UCB) is on the show to talk about Sufjan Stevens’ epic song “Impossible Soul.” Clocking in at just over 25 minutes, “Impossible Soul” takes the listener on a deliberately minimal and melancholy ride. Amanda tells us about seeing Sufjan live and about the one time she slept outside in February to get tickets to a free show. We also talk about what makes his live performances so wonderful and unique. In addition to Sufjan himself, we cover the allure of long songs, the end of a very long relationship, and what it’s like when a barge interrupts an important phone call. All of that, plus, Pat wants your long song recommendations and Evan takes a spin class!
