This episode features clips from the 2014 documentary R.E.M. by MTV. I wanted to include clips from Episode 124: Longbox of the podcast 99% Invisible about how the packaging for R.E.M.'s album Out of Time changed American politics, but I couldn’t find a short enough soundbite for this over-inflated episode. So just go listen to the whole thing if you haven’t—it’s great!
