The Masque of the Red Death, by Edgar Allan Poe

The Memory Palace is a proud member of Radiotopia from PRX.

This episode contains a full reading of Edgar Allan Poe?s short story, The Masque of the Red Death. Use your discretion before listening. It is both one of the more macabre stories from Poe and it is hitting harder than usual during these peculiar times.

Also check out The Tall Tales of Dan De Quille, by C. Grant Loomis from 1946.

I found this article about Twain?s time in Nevada particularly helpful.

The Wheel

In a terrible summer often filled with stories about monuments to terrible men, here is a story about an American hero. Build monuments to Robert Smalls.

Originally released on February 10th, 2016.

The Memory Palace is a proud member of the Radiotopia Network.

Music
* Julia Rovinsky plays Phillip Glass? Metamorphosis I, from her album Dusk.
* There?s an excerpt from Paul Drescher?s ?Casa Vecchia,? from the Mirrors: Other Fire album.
* There?s a chunk of Jose Gonzalez? ?Instrumental? from his Stay in the Shade EP.
* ?Manny Returns Home? from Bernard Hermann?s score to The Wrong Man.
* Branka Parlic plays Philip Glass? ?Mad Rush.? Twice.
?Quiet Fan for SK,? by P.G. Six.
* Things get heavy to ?Particles of the Universe (Heartbeats)? from Dan Romer and Ben Zeitlin?s score to Beasts of the Southern Wild.

Notes
There?s a lot written about Robert Smalls, with a lot of contradictory information. I found Edward A. Miller?s Gullah Statesman: Robert Smalls from Slavery to Congress particularly useful to sorting it all out.
Some other sources I consulted while researching this piece:
* The Negro?s Civil War: How American Blacks Felt and Acted During the War for the Union by the Don, James McPherson
* From Slavery to Public Service: Robert Smalls, 1839-1915, by Okon Uya.
* And, for what it?s worth, Robert Smalls: The Boat Thief from RFK Jr.?s American Heroes Series is an enjoyable and surprisingly thorough version of the story for young readers, if you?re ever looking for that sort of thing.

Dream by John Cage

Completely Gone by Ludwig Gorannson

The Introduction and Chi C?e Per Farmi i Rici from The Girl of the Golden West

L?approche Du Nuage by Sylvain Chaveu

Notes

The story of John Cage in the anechoic chamber was first told to me maybe twenty years ago by my friend Dave Panosky one night while walking around Providence. It was precisely the type of story that I wanted to one day make a show to tell. You can find it in a lot of places including in Cage?s own writing.

I first came across the second silent room in Alex Ross? wonderful, The Rest is Noise.

I also tapped into Puccini and the Girl: History and Reception of Girl of the Golden West by Annie Randall and Rosalind Gray Davis.

And Brambles play Such Owls as You.

Notes

There's a pretty comprehensive book on Bayocean by Bert and Margie Webber called Bayocean: the Oregon Town That Fell Into the Sea

There's also a terrific website that appears to be regularly updating that's filled with all sorts of stories and resources about Bayocean.

Episode 148: Safe Passage

The Memory Palace is a proud member of Radiotopia, a collective of independently owned and operated podcasts.

A note on shownotes. In a perfect world, you go into each episode of the Memory Palace knowing nothing about what's coming. It's pretentious, sure, but that's the intention. So, if you don't want any spoilers or anything, you can click play without reading ahead.

Anyway...

Music 

We start with the Opening of Craig Armstrong's score to Far From the Madding Crowd.

Glass Houses no. 13 from Ann Southern.

Earring from Julia Wolf.

Occam II for Violin from Eliane Radigue.

Rearranging Furniture from Gabriel Yared's score to By the Sea.

A bit of Movement II from Martynov, "Come in!" by Vladimir Martynov.

Notes

Plenty written about the Willie D.. I found Roger Branfill-Cook's Torpedo: the Most Revolutionary Weapon in Naval History to be particularly useful.

I also enjoyed stumbling upon this day-by-day breakdown of F.D.R.'s Presidency.

Anyway...

Music 

We hear Vaggvisa by Henrik Lindstrand.

Then Kestrel, off the album by the same name from Caoimhin O Raghallaigh.

Ljuva mekaniska jag by 1900.

A loop from When it's Time to Go, by Buddy Fo & his Group.

Making Love in the Apartment from Krysztof Komeda's score to Rosemary's Baby.

And the Mistral Noir, from Daniel Herkedal.

Notes

There's a lot written about Kelly and his times, none more enjoyable than Bill Bryson's in One Summer: America, 1927.

The best academic book that touches on Kelly and his times is Dance Marathons: Performing American Culture in the 1920s and 30s, by Carol Martin.
