Notes:

Our interview with musician and writer Robert Dean Lurie continues. We talked to him before his book singing at the Mansion on O in D.C. In today’s episode, Robert reveals a story he’s held onto for over 20 years regarding the meaning behind R.E.M.‘s name. He also presents evidence to back it up.
