They Might Be Puppets

On July 4th, Kurt caught up with They Might Be Giants' John Flansburgh, John Linnell, and Marty Beller at the Aspen Ideas Festival and found out why the sun really shines. (The special show airs on Studio 360 this weekend.) Not in attendance were John and John's sock puppet alter egos - the delightfully orange emcees of the They Might Be Giants' Friday Night Family Podcast. If you haven't checked out the podcast yet, you're in for a treat. I may have mastered my ABCs and 123s long ago, but I still get a kick out of a puppet dressed like George Washington. Also in this episode (from President's Day weekend 2008) a psychedelic ode to the always under-appreciated number two.
