Joseph Keckler is an operatic bass-baritone. He gained notoriety for his performance pieces, concerts, and music videos. One notable piece, Shroom Trip Opera, which is the true story of a bad trip he once has had was dubbed by Indiewire as a "classic". Sarah Silverman described it as "mind blowing".
He has performed at Lincoln Center, Adult Swim Festival, and the Centre Pompidou. Check out Joseph's collection of essays: Dragon at the Edge of a Flat World(2017). Currently Joseph is an artist in residence at The Ringling Museum of Art.
For your listening pleasure, two of Joseph's performances are included in the episode. The first is his cover of a Screaming Jay Hawkins I Put a Spell on You, and the second Apocalypse is his own song.
