TMR Fresán Relisten Ep. 18: “The Past Is a Broken Toy That Everyone Fixes in His Own Way” [THE DREAMED PART]
Welcome to the Great Fresan Relisten of 2023! Over the next four weeks, we’ll be reissuing an episode a day from the The Invented Part and The Dreamed Part seasons of TMR so that you can catch-up, refresh your memory, have a few laughs, etc., before the May 10th launch of Season 19 on The Remembered Part.
Here are the show notes from the original airing:
This week’s episode brings us back to The Writer, unable to sleep, living near where Penelope’s house burned down (see: The Invented Part), and living off the fortunes of Penelope’s writings (RIP). There’s a great bit in this section about FBI agent Johnny Dancer and Vladimir Nabokov, there’s a horrifying (yet funny!) death scene, and an interesting translation question related to a bad joke. Plus, translator Will Vanderhyden gives us a few hints about what to expect in The Remembered Part!
Everyone already knows this week’s music, the video of which brings back so so so many memories . . .
