Following Song Exploder

Song Exploder (Song Exploder)

Song Exploder is a podcast where musicians take apart their songs, and piece by piece, tell the story of how they were made.

Each episode is produced and edited by host and creator Hrishikesh Hirway in Los Angeles. Using the isolated, individual tracks from a recording, Hrishikesh asks artists to delve into the specific decisions that went into creating their work. Hrishikesh edits the interviews, removing his side of the conversation and condensing the story to be tightly focused on how the artists brought their songs to life. Guests include Björk, U2, Metallica, Solange, and over a hundred more. Full list of episodes.

Song Exploder is an independent podcast, and a proud member of Radiotopia, from PRX. Learn more at radiotopia.fm.

Maybe I wouldn’t hate spam calls so much if people weren’t spoofing telephone numbers, pretending that they knew me based on two data points, or they didn’t so obviously sound like they were calling from the noisiest boiler rooms on the planet. If you’re going to try to waste my time you could also be a bit quicker about it.

On the other hand it is nice to get old school in person phone spam instead of the auto-dialed, pre-recorded nonsense I have been getting.

I had a long hair cat named Tycho (a Maine coon/Russian Gray mix?) for 12 years, and I don’t think in his entire life he shed as much fur as my German Shepherd Lily has shed in the past two weeks. (This doesn’t count the 20 pounds of fur I’ve bushed off of her with a Furminator in the past week either.)

Time to buy a robot vacuum cleaner I think.
