Welcome to Deeper Cuts: the COVID Sessions -- a three episode miniseries which finds the Deeper Cuts trio taking deep dives into music with deep meaning for us right now as we shelter in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Living in modern times can be exciting, and also terrifying. Sometimes, it feels like we’re just children in a big imposing world, sparking our anxieties, and making us feel overwhelmed. While sheltering in place during this strange and scary COVID-19 era, Shannon turned to fellow New Yorker John Mulaney’s Sack Lunch Bunch soundtrack, an accompaniment to his Netflix special of the same name. What can a series of children’s songs teach us about anxiety? How does this help us in this period of uncertainty? In the last of our COVID Sessions, the trio works it out, discovering among other things that even in the darkest times, there is music to be found here, there, and everywhere, even as we worry about whether flowers can exist at night.
