Podcasts are all the rage right now. Everybody has one, even me. But only the podcasts that think outside the box stand out from the rest.
And here are three music podcasts that do just that.
In each Song Exploder episode, we hear from musicians who “take apart their songs, and piece by piece, tell the story of how they were made.”
This podcast is not just for music enthusiasts or songwriters — anyone who’s interested in the creative process can enjoy it.
The Dinner Party Download
The Dinner Party Download is “a fast and funny hour of culture, food and conversation — it’s ‘public radio’s arts & leisure section.'”
Each episode, they introduce you to a musician/band, ask them questions, and have them choose their own party playlist.
Stagedive, produced by the very talented Stephanie Foo, seems to be discontinued. But, man, it packed some great stories into a few episodes.
It calls itself the “blood behind the music.” Basically, musicians tell stories of their own that you probably wouldn’t hear elsewhere.
