In this episode, we learn a little bit about Sam’s taste in television; we discuss Hailey’s completely non-triumphant return to the orchestra by way of the front office; and we all learn something about the power of podcasts.
Sam and Dave discuss the internal politics of the fictional New York Symphony, as well as the way orchestras and orchestra musicians relate to their communities. Can you #hashtag hear the hair?
In the inaugural episode of False Recap, Sam and Dave discuss their overall impressions of the show and dig into the pilot episode.

- Mozart in the Jungle pilot episode – Amazon Prime
CORRECTION: In the episode, we erroneously gave the impression that you must be an Amazon Prime subscriber to watch the pilot episode of Mozart in the Jungle. Blair Tindall, author of the book on which the show is based, let us know that this is not the case. Anybody can watch without being a Prime member. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks for setting us straight, Blair. Hooray free things!
