Welcome to the newly rebranded podcast! Since I only record these things when I don’t put a huge ton of pressure on myself to have, like, a them, I thought I’d embrace it and call the thing “Ripper’s Rambles”.

After nine months of rambling, I’ve decided to give the podcast a name. I owe a bit to high school-aged Stephen King (or maybe he was in college), who penned a column called “King’s Dump Truck”. So here you go! I will now ramble, all for you.

[ETA, I’m on the phone with my friend Cole, who–despite the fact that she has no method to play cassette tapes–still has her box of mix tapes in arm’s reach from her couch. Now that’s fuckin’ mix tape dedication. Black Flag or Pansy Division, anyone?]
