The heart of this episode is a discussion of Jim Jarmusch's third film, Down By Law. Released in 1986, its stars much like their characters in the movie have taken unique paths since this film. Some have stayed together while others have gone their separate ways. Terry tries to discuss this and probably too much else in this episode. Included in this episode is a discussion on I-4 (recorded while on I-4) and personal tales of New Orleans (the setting of this episode's film. This is the first leg of the Pod Road Trip or PRT. This leg takes us from Polk County, FL to New Orleans, LA. By the end of the trip, the discussions of films and albums will take us to Los Angeles after which the theme will change but the journeys are expected to continue.

Terry here...I'm wrapping the She & Him/M. Ward discussion (for now) with an overview of the She & Him show in Nashville from 2013 and two of the M. Ward shows from earlier this year. I can honestly say that the whole story isn't here but the largely tangential parts left out should come in handy for inspiring other episodes of the podcast. I talk about one of their hard-to-find videos as well as two important members of the She & Him and M. Ward touring bands, Scott McPherson and Mike Coykendall as well as some other odds-and-ends that conclude this love letter of sorts to two of my favorite musical experiences that are out there today.
I strongly recommend checking out the YouTube playlist for this episode. And if you are on Facebook or Twitter, you can join the Flickering Waves Podcast group page and follow us @flickeringwaves respectively to get direct links to the YouTube playlists and anything else that might strike our fancy. Finally, if you are downloading this from iTunes, please subscribe and/or comment about the podcast. Check back in with Episode 8 which will feature a discussion of Ryan Adams' Love Is Hell.

Aaron reminded Terry of a theory that Terry suggested regarding how the finale of How I Met Your Mother might play out. The rather dark theory was the seed of the main discussion for this proper premiere episode of the podcast. Scattered throughout the discussion are some musical and movie connections that while they pay homage to the carefully tangled plot weaved on How I Met Your Mother they also should serve as spoiler-free detours from the main discussion.
If you have not seen the episodes of HIMYM titled "Unpause" and "How Your Mother Met Me", one is strongly suggested to heed the spoiler alerts throughout the episode.
Some of but necessary not all of the topics discussed in this episodes (besides HIMYM): Spooky Empire, Frances Ha, Guided By Voices, The Magnetic Fields, Next Stop Wonderland, Mad About You, The Big Bang Theory, Sports Night, Futurama, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, The Newsroom
