WR528: Twitchitt

On this episode, I explore distant planets with synthpop space traveller [Twitchitt](http://www.twitchitt.com/), whose cosmic new record, Bubblegum Disturbium, is out now! It’s a fun conversation about her colourful (both sonically and visually) new direction, finding creative outlets during the pandemic, selling CDs door-to-door, and much more! Note: I accidentally erased the first couple minutes of this episode, so it launches right into the conversation as soon as it starts. This episode brought to you by [Rob Crooks](http://robcrooks.bandcamp.com/), whose outstanding new album, Introducing the Ghost, is out now from[ Saskatoon Folk Rap Records](http://saskatoonfolkraprecords.bandcamp.com/)!
