Slumberland podcast

The Oral History session with town electrician Merlin Jebb. It's a fish tale partly told by song. Also includes a tour of Slumberland's substation. There's an ever-present hum in the building that annoys a sound man like Thomas Edward M. Also a mysterious green glowing power source, left running by the island's long-vanished resident genius, Stig Gorgonsdottir. His brother Sigmund once visited Slumberland and helped build the Community Dome. "Siggy" also left behind some data tapes.

 

Merlin Jebb and the song "The Ballad of Grandfather Sturgeon" performed by Thomas R. Mansell.
