  1. Great episode today! I have been listening to the Dylan’s Gospel all day and it is fabulous. Quinn is a standout and that it is sung by Merry Clayton blew my mind. I had no idea that existed.

    I loved that Chris pointed out that he heard the Dylan quote you read in his Theme Time Radio Hour dad joke voice. I always hear Bob in that voice in my head when I read a quote from him. Still hoping to hear a Theme Time Radio Hour podcast from you someday.

    Keep up the great work.

  2. Great episode guys, nothing deep to add, just wanted to say that I’m glad to hear that I’m not alone in liking the Manfred Mann version of this song more than the Dylan original! I DO enjoy the Basement Tapes recording, but that Manfred Mann version is just a fun slice of pure pop, and I think this song needs that type of vide to really work! Happy to hear that Rob enjoys it as well. Thanks for the fun listen gentlemen!

  3. Now I’ll have Quinn the Eskimo stuck in my head all day… and that’s totally a good thing.

    Thanks for another amazing episode.

  4. Thanks for all your great conversations! And I don’t mind at all when you also dive deep into where your guest is living. Regarding the double negative in “You’ll not see nothing….,” I think it’s rather simple. He’s stating the quite popular emphatic expression, “you ain’t seen nothing yet!” But he uses the future tense rather than the present perfect. So we don’t have to imagine a class of people who might use this double negative, but we can admire Dylan’s playfulness with the English language.
