Episode 92: Toska

Post-Rock Paper Scissors is a twice-a-week podcast about post-rock and all things tangentially related.

Today's show is the 20th and final episode of our untranslatable series. Our word today is "toska", which means "At its deepest and most painful, it is a sensation of great spiritual anguish, often without any specific cause. At less morbid levels it is a dull ache of the soul, a longing with nothing to long for, a sick pining, a vague restlessness, mental throes, yearning. In particular cases it may be the desire for somebody of something specific, nostalgia, love-sickness. At the lowest level it grades into ennui, boredom."

Sort about the smart-assing, but Brodacast's singer died of Pneumonia/H1N1-flu. Just like to get the facts straight. Pretty awesome mix by the way.
