COLD OPEN

INTERVIEW
I’m a person who likes to be with other people, but definitely likes my alone time. When I’m with other people, I like to be lively, and fun, and active, and engaged. I like to have a lot of fun, but I like to accomplish things.

[Theme begins.]

And why I’m here on earth? Hm… I think my siblings needed a baby of the family.

JESSICA WASHINGTON

I am a….young, vibrant female trying to make it through…the rays of life. Umm, the ups and the downs, trying to figure it all out, and trying to learn as much as I can before the time ends.

[Charlie on the MTA plays]

JESSICA WASHINGTON
And I think I’m here…well, I think I’m still trying to figure out why I’m here. I think that the more I go along within the journey, I’ll figure it out and hopefully I’ll be able to achieve whatever that purpose is.

INTERVIEWEE

My Advice to the mayor of Boston would be to listen to their constituents.

And, and…make sure that they are following the people.

Transcript for Episode 25: But Perhaps there is a Key

THE BIG LOOP promo – Alexander Danner

Hi, Alexander here to tell you about a fiction podcast that Jeff and I have been really enjoying lately. Now, Jeff and I both love a good dramatic monologue–and if you’ve made it this far into Greater Boston, I’m going to assume you do too. So you need to give a listen to The Big Loop by writer Paul Bae and engineer Steve Jin. You might already know Paul’s work from The Black Tapes, but trust us, The Big Loop is a whole other experience. From the tribulations of a professional grief surrogate to an unlucky assassin frustrated by the one that got away, these stories are deep character portraits of humans in crisis, all told with a captivating confessional intimacy. Season 2 has just started, but you can jump in anywhere—every episode is self contained. That’s The Big Loop—stories of finite beings in an infinite universe.
