Imaginary Indie Tunes Podcast {August 2006}

Three Imaginary Girls created a series of podcasts between 2005-2010 titled the Imaginary Indie Tunes Podcast. Each episode served as a mixtape of our favorite songs for each given month – spotlighting the new releases and upcoming shows. Listening to this episode 12+ years after it was originally published,  further proves that a good song is a good song and even though we shared them for the first time a while back, they are still very lovable. {all currently published podcast episodes}

Here’s a look back at our second episode which was originally published in August 2006 (the first one has become truly imaginary). It makes sense to start this thing back up with a Long Winters track.
