David, Yavar, and Clark

The Goldsmith Odysseys of this world don't come back. Comebacks are for ordinary podcasts. I don't know, maybe there never was a Goldsmith Odyssey. Maybe it's just the eternal fresh carnation, the eternal grin, the eternal hope. It's a legend. A legend that plays like a podcast. Well, here's to both of 'em: the legend... and the podcast. Within that podcast, your humble hosts David, Yavar, and Clark examine the General Electric Theater episode "The Legend That Walks Like a Man," and the alternately playful and tender Goldsmith score that accompanies it. Enjoy!
