WASTOIDS With: The Source Family

Among the crop of intentional communities and cults that sprang out of the counter culture of the late ’60s and the ’70s, few are as mythic as The Source Family. On this special installment of WASTOIDS With, we speak with Source Family historian Isis Aquarian and Source documentarian Jodi Wille about The Source Family Scrapbook and upcoming tour.

WASTOIDS With…Marc Masters (The Spindle)

This is WASTOIDS With and we’re hanging with a voice that should be familiar to listeners, Marc Masters, co-host of The Spindle podcast. Every two weeks, he and his partner John Howard discuss a single 7” record here on WASTOIDS. So far, they’ve covered 45s by Flipper, Pavement, Superchunk, and Hüsker Dü. Marc’s also a musician—he and John played in a group called The Plums—as well as one of our favorite music writers, whose work can be read Pitchfork, Bandcamp, NPR, The Washington Post, and The Wire. His 2007 book No Waveis sadly out of print, but commands high dollar prices on the secondary market, and he’s hard at work on a book about the history of cassettes, which we discuss here today on WASTOIDS With…Marc Masters.
