The compilation contains 21 songs that were previously released through the They Might Be Giants Podcast, including the title track, "Cast Your Pod To The Wind." "Brain Problem Situation" had not been released (or even mentioned) until this disc's release, and "No Plan B" had only been performed live a few times and recorded for a radio show. In addition, "I'm Your Boyfriend Now" and "We Live In A Dump" were entirely re-recorded for the disc, while many others were remixed, remastered, and partially re-recorded to optimize the songs' new-found high fidelity.
