Talk It Out
I just couldn't stay. What was I supposed to write about? A 14th different angle on "we might finish in last place in the conference in both football and basketball?" No. So I left. And I called Tyler. And I recorded our conversation. And this is that recording.
A few notes:
- I spliced together a few different recordings. But this is just raw audio with the front part clipped off. So it starts with incredulous me and then we just launch into it.
- About five minutes into the conversation - I'm driving with my earbuds in and recording the call - I get pulled over by a very nice officer in Tolono who gives me a speeding ticket. As I was pulling over, the phone cuts off. So you'll hear Tyler cut off mid-sentence, followed by a pause, followed by our second call after the officer gave me my ticket and sent me on my way.
- Even with all of that, I thought the discussion was good. The audio sucks, but it's me - you expect the audio to suck. You want raw emotion? I give you raw emotion (and raw audio).
Without further introduction, here's those two phone calls:
