Seattle siren Star Anna and Eco-consumer Tom Watson

While the rest of America is fixated on the Boston bombing manhunt, we hunker down in our basement fixated on video images of ourselves.

Making her 685th appearance on the podcast, but her first as a solo performer, Star Anna wows us, as always, with her honesty, and her unbelievably songwriting. She also introduces us to her officially licensed sidekick/security blanket, Forrest the Wonder Dog.


Following someone named Star is always tough duty, but leave it to King County Eco-Warrior and recycling expert Tom Watson to find new life in the second half of our show. He also brought an interesting Earth Day (April 22, 2013) gift for Marty that is one notch up from a lump of coal. And Marty is thrilled.
