There seem to be a lot of people who, for whatever reason, aren't able to watch these on Instagram and have said they really appreciated these being posted up on YouTube. And Susie has said the Tweedys don't mind them being posted (at least for the time being). So I put up the latest two episodes. There's some weirdness going on in the middle of episode 6, but episode 7 is pretty clean. Enjoy.

 

Episode 6 (3/25/20) : https://youtu.be/_N_h5aQAVKQ

 

Episode 7 (3/26/20): https://youtu.be/CFk1XxEVtjA

 

Thanks! I signed up for instragram to watch these but haven't been able to watch live.

Just did some googling,  and it might be that I was trying to watch on my CPU using chrome- maybe you need to use a mobile device to see the live videos???

EDIT: I'm an idiot. Downloaded the app and tried on my phone and i can see last night's video now...

Fwiw: There is a Ray Bradbury story: I  Sing The Body Electirc / The Electric Grandmother that I thought of as I listened to the new poem (first title was a Twilight Zone and later radio series episode that I heard a couple of months ago, second title a later TV film version).

No talk of why he played that?  I suppose most people here know the story.

These Tweedy Show episodes have been like oxygen in these strange, stifling days.

 

It's such a gift, especially during this time as you said. It's nice to have something to look forward to at the end of the day.
