You can help! Go to this episode’s page on The Rampler Show Notes Wiki and write some show notes for this episode. They can be as brief or detailed as you like. Always feel free to add more details or make corrections to what’s already there. Thanks!!

Join host Frank Edward Nora his daily commute, walking through the streets of NYC, as he discusses a dizzying myriad of topics. This show is an experimental “spinoff” of Frank’s main show, The Overnightscape (which continues on as normal). The show is recorded directly as a 128kbps MP3 file on an Edirol R-09 portable recorder. This makes it much easier to release the recordings, since no post-production is required. Also, at least to start with, the shows will be released without show notes to further speed up the release process.

“The Rampler” is released here on The Overnightscape Underground, but it exists outside the standard “Day” format – again, to make it easier to very quickly record and release.

  1. I enjoyed this episode, and I think you should photobomb the next people you see in Times square who are in your way.
