"Time Crisis five. Can you believe it? Our fifth episode already. This is an emotional episode of Time Crisis. No big time celebs, just good friends and family discussing pop culture and music, and our lives. I’ll be joined by Jake Longstreth, talking about Guided By Voices, as well as Ethan Silverman of Terrible Records. In the first half hour my own flesh and blood, my sister Emma, will stop by. Get ready for Time Crisis."



  • Ethan Silverman - founder of Terrible Records
  • Emma Koenig - writer


Emma, Ezra's younger sister, brings some audio clips of the siblings as children, and the Crew, also joined by Ethan Silverman, talks about accents. Ezra shares a story in which a medical emergency occurs during a performance of The Elephant Man, starring Bradley Cooper, which delays the play's final four minutes for an hour. A bout of songs themed around growing up and the death of childhood dreams precedes "resident rock expert" Jake's introduction to Guided By Voices.



Fun Facts

While Jake does not enjoy Harry Chapin's "Cat's In the Cradle", he does admit he enjoys the sonic palette.
