Episode 047 - An American In Paris

May 12, 2018

"If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast."

WORLDS REPORT!

The whimsical piece you hear as the episode begins comes from Gershwin, who wrote An American In Paris as an expression of thanks to his Parisian hosts in the 1920s. Paris in the time between the world wars was awash with expatriates, including Earnest Hemingway, Ezra Pound, and William Yeats. Gershwin was also there for a short time, and An American In Paris does an incredible job of capturing the visceral nature of a foreigner's stay in Paris. 

Well, I got someone even better than those chumps to come on the podcast! That's right! Greg Monson is better than them all!

In this episode, Greg gives a report of his incredible showing at Worlds. Greg is officially the best Han Ranger player in the world, and his talent was very much on display at the IA World Championship. Listen in as he describes his harrowing 6-1 journey through swiss and progression through the cut wherein he played an epic final against Daniel Taylor.
