The N400 is a brain wave spike reliably occurring 400 milliseconds after hearing an unexpected word at the end of a pheasant. Sentence. N400. Normally, your brain does the work. Here we’ll do it for you.

Erik Belgum's EBFN Radio is a fiction variety show influenced by neurological and psychological research protocols, Robert Ashley, Ernie Kovacs, speech pathology, Second City Television, noise music, P.T. Barnum, test patterns, Vic and Sade, and William Burroughs. Writes Belgum, "If my timing feels way off, well, that’s on you. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll feel like you’re going to throw up for hours and hours, but in a good way. In any case, it’s a win-win for me."
