This Week On Says You!

Find Your Station!

Timbre Timber

In last week’s episode, from Colchester, VT, we played a round called “Great Name for a Rock Band.” It turns out our a folk duo from Chicago was on the same wavelength.

Somebody mentioned on your show that they thought Wattle and Daub was a good name for a folk band. We thought so, too! Been calling ourselves that for a couple of years now.

To check out Wattle and Daub, visit their Facebook page at Www.facebook.com/OldFolkiesMusic.

Do you have a band name you think is platinum, an idea for a round, or a question to stump our players? Connect with us on the Got a Good One tab on our website.

An Education in Equity

Niko, a longtime listener north of the border, raises a fair point about our Mother’s Day Special:
In your odd woman out on Mother’s Day, half the answers had to do with men: either who they were married to or that they simply were men.
If you want to highlight famous women on the show, highlight women, not men.
I love the show (been listening since the beginning when I was 10), but if you want to appeal to a wider audience, keep equality in mind.
Thanks!
Niko, listening since the age of ten you’ve undoubtably heard the show change through the years. We truly appreciate that you took the time to share your thoughts with us.

The Says You! Podcast!

Digging Up Lovecraft

Linda from Randolph reminds us of the macabre mythos associated with “eldritch”

I was rather surprised a couple of weeks ago to hear the word “eldritch” used in one of the bluffing rounds. It is a familiar word to me, immediately bringing to mind H.P. Lovecraft and his Cthulhu mythos which was quite popular (quite a while ago, I guess) and frequently described as “eldritch”. Ah, macabre tales of unearthly doings along the misty Miskatonic River! I always thought that anyone who had immersed themselves in Poe and his ilk would surely come across Lovecraft and his eldritch stories eventually.

Live with “Wisconsin Bob”

Bob from La Crosse, WI joined us for one of our live shows
Thanks for the LaCrosse show! I was doubly delighted to see a live show last weekend. First because I saw faces to match voices, second because the interaction and humor was just great. Anybody who listens needs to see a live show. Bravo!
It sounds like Bob had the night of his week, maybe year, heck, probably his life. If you want to see how great Says You! is live, subscribe to the email updates and stay tuned for a show coming to your city.
