Episode 138: Sixty Starlings

The Memory Palace is a proud member of Radiotopia.


  • Blink from Hiroshi Yoshimura

  • Which comes in and out of Bjolukor Tonlisterakoli Reykjanesbaejar's version of Sigur Ros' Hoppipolla.

  • Love Token by Elena Kats-Chernin, performed by Tamara Anna Cislowska

  • And Joanna Brouk playing Maggi's Flute - Lifting Off


  • There's
    a ton out there about the sixty starlings, the most comprehensive comes
    from Stephen Marche's book, How Shakespeare Changed Everything.

  • I also found Kim Todd's [Tinkering with Eden,](http://%22Tinkering%20With%20Eden:%20A%20Natural%20History%20of%20Exotic%20Species%20in%20America) particularly useful.
