Matt Sage and Fuubutsushi put out four records—aligned with the seasons—that helped keep me sane in quarantine. Until this conversation, I had no idea he and I had so much in common, including:
- obsession with naming things, especially bands
- nondenominational Christian background
- knowledge of the Christian ska band Five Iron Frenzy
- type one diabetes
- surviving comas
And these similarities aren't even the whole story of an episode that covers memory palaces, the terrible beauty of fatherhood, and the legality of funeral pyres vs. mushroom suits. Enjoy!!
