  1. Hey Rob and Victoria! I hopped off social media for a while but was following Victoria on YouTube and Instagram. Anyway, I’ve been keeping up with these podcasts and love them! My go-to Summer albums are Little Joy’s self-titled album from 2008; Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix by Phoenix; Wilder Adkins’ Hope and Sorrow; The Wild Reeds’ The World We Built; and Effi Briest’s Rhizomes (warning: the last one is loud and strange). Not necessarily a Summer song, but check out the awesome new collaboration by the Decemberists and Olivia Chaney. It’s called Offa Rex and it is gorgeous. Keep up the good work on your podcast!

    • I have been wondering where you have been, Rebecca!!! I figured you were taking another break from social media, which is great.
      We are listening to Little Joy’s self-titled album right now and really love it!!! Thank you for the recommendation! We’ll be listening to the rest of your suggestions throughout the week.
      I recently mentioned in one of our podcast episodes about The Wild Reeds’ The World We Built because I really adore that album. Yey!!!
      Keep in touch!!!! I really would love to have a way to keep in communication with you (even if I can write you letters if you’d be up for it)

  2. Love this week’s episode. I haven’t gotten much into digital assets but i follow the news on it pretty regularly on investopedia.

    On a different note. I’m having trouble finding the Facebook page. Is it listed as something different?

    My summer tunes are:
    Four Year Strong – Rise or Die Trying
    Lecrae – Anomaly
    Motion City Soundtrack – Commit This to Memory

    Independence Day – 1996
    Anchorman – 2004
    Hidalgo – 2004

    • Yeah, the digital asset space is a bit of a crazy place to be right now. In the next couple of years it will probably be a lot easier to deal with but for now it’s rather wild and free (not always in the best sense, either).

      As for the facebook page, I did a search for “simply us” and “simply us podcast” and it did come up pretty quickly, but that might be because I’m already associated with it. The actual URL is facebook.com/simplyuspodcast if you want to just use that to get there.

      Those are some pretty great summer recommendations as well! Glad to hear from you, as always!
