One of the standouts this week brings back memories of grade school, in the suburbs of Minneapolis. I remember some of the moms in our neighborhood being quite concerned about a game called Dungeons and Dragons. In fact, I believe I was actually forbidden to even be in the same room with other kids who might be playing it. With a little hindsight, it seems even more ridiculous now. Sound collage artist Ros Bobos does a good job of bringing this all back, with a track off of his new record (“Mandatory Astral Projections”) called “Role Playing With Cultic Overtones.” Check it out in Episode 251 HERE.
