A note on notes: We’d much rather you just went into each episode of The Memory Palace cold. And just let the story take you where it well. So, we don’t suggest looking into the show notes first.


  • As Old Roads by Goldmund

  • Wake by Taylor Duepree and Marcus Fisher

  • Sedentary II by Kyle Bobby Dunn

  • Talk to the Church by Gaussian Curve
