Indie rock band The National joins Scott this week to talk about their new album “Sleep Well Beast,” spaceship rockumentaries, and to perform songs off their new album. Then, Victor and Tiny are back to tell us about their journey trying to get a driver’s license. Plus, acrobat Dagmar the Small returns to talk about how she got her hollow bones and her impromptu performances floating around town.

As someone who writes about music weekly, the episode's commentary on music journalism is 1,000% spot-on.

I haven't listened to the episode yet, but there's a lot to be excited about. I'm cautiously optimistic that The National will join Tiny and Victor in a rendition of "Under the Apple Tree".

I don't know if I'm ever in awe of a CBB guest more than when Tiny interrupts Victor mid-sentence.

I can't believe Scott asked if the interview was an "A+." Did he think the boys from The National were ignorant to the fact that C+ is the highest grade possible? For shame, Scott.

Either that or no one cared enough to derail the podcast by correcting him.
