Slowing into the final tracks, Catherine, Martin and Sam find Tom Waits in a calmer, more observational mood, as he swings through small-town America and describes some much more wholesome figures than we've encountered so far. And then… Martin picks a song about a serial-killer for contrast… and we get into tax returns and ignoring lyrics… no wonder Catherine's leaving the show!
