Ding ding ding, podcast is up. Fresh podcast. Get it while it’s hot.
Episode Ten is the first of our shows to get its hands dirty in the untidy business of lyric-writing. Our guest is Pandora music curator and Play Listen Repeat columnist Michael Zapruder. He and I talk about the topography of a song, heap effusive praise on writers we admire (Ray Davies, Joni Mitchell, Aesop Rock), and see how his song “The Alchemist” is contextually similar to Ice-T’s “Cop Killer” and Eminem’s “Kim.” Michael is originally from the great state of Maryland.
Go directly to the new episode here, or head over to the main podcast page to see and hear all ten shows.
Also, on that show page, you can ask us any questions you’d like, or disagree vehemently with us. Michael and I will be on there fielding comments and quoting David Berman lyrics.

    Hey!!! I know this is not about the post, but I was thinking you could create an area to submit singers... There are some artists I don't find in the lists, and they are well known artists, not my cousins' friends!!! ja ja ja
