When Musicians Make Podcasts And Podcasters Make Music

From Roy Woods to Kate Bush

Also this week:

Print star Bonnie Bloomgarden said of the Death Valley Girls Podcast, “Over the past seven years, we have been collecting supernatural interviews on tour from all around the world. We love gathering stories and trying to figure out the mysteries of the universe. Our first interview was in Gothenburg, Sweden. We met a former skeptic that found himself outnumbered by ghosts of pirates in the city center in the middle of the night! Later that week a missing 500-year-old pirate sword fell from a tree, and was a pretty big news story. He also became a believer! We weren’t exactly sure what format we would release these interviews, but we made it a goal to gather as many tales of the strange and unusual as possible. Officially, however, we started the podcast March 2021, once we figured out how to use Zoom.”

In the same feature, Hrishikesh Hirway said of Song Exploder, Part of the reason I started the podcast is I really enjoyed the kind of conversations that I get to have on the show. I did before I even made the show. Finding out why other artists make the choices they make. That’s the core of the show, and I don’t think I’ll ever be tired of that. One of the most frustrating things is like, there’s a lot more music than there is time.”
