Wherein the Gay Place Recruits Backup to Handle Amanda Palmer

Crack Chronicle politics reporter Richard Whittaker cracks Amanda Palmer's code. Part 1 and 2.

Richard Whittaker and Amanda Palmer really hit it off. In part one, they discuss (at first, non-verbally) sucking dick, William Shatner, ukuleles, Morrissey, and Oasis on the radio. And they cuddle.


Here, they discuss fashion, wearing out clothes, multi-genrelism, band survival, Chrondoms, and how 2006 was pre-YouTube and pre-The Tweet.

Does anyone else think it is so cute that Amanda's parents gave her the middle name "Fucking?"
