072 – "Isis"

By Sign on the Window

Sign on the Window isn't the Bob Dylan podcast you need, but it's definitely the one that you want! Each week we select a Dylan song at random, live with the song for a week (or two) and then get together to discuss. This week the masterful "Isis" from 1976's DESIRE. In this episode, we talk about a few live versions (8:00), who is Isis (14:30) and break down the song itself – including marriage, lonely side-quest Bill, and performativity (17:30). This week we recommend (40:00) our playlist, RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2, and Colter Wall. Only 3 episodes left for Season 2! As always, full show notes at our website ( You can also follow along with our weekly real-time Spotify playlist (search "See That My Playlist is Kept Clean") and join the conversation on Twitter (, message us on Facebook (, like on Instagram ( and reblog on Tumblr ( And if you're loving us, consider our Patreon ( For as little as one dollar you get early access to every episode we do as soon as they're edited (and a dedicated feed just for you) and exclusive content that'll only ever be on Patreon. Thanks! Next week: Lincoln County Road or Armageddon?
