Ep 41: Lucid Waking
Lincoln opens by apologizing for saying “um” so much, then goes right on saying it. Then Elise wonders about the history of eyelash wishes, and Lincoln wishes she’d looked it up.

Also, since Lincoln forgot to mention it, Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings was played by the Vienna Chamber Orchestra, led by Philipe Entremont.
