Season 1 Episode 2 Feb 3, 2016

Horribly Right

Wherein we get real, usable life advice (and phrases!) from Mass Gothic's Noel Heroux and Jessica Zambri, finally hear the origin story of Hardly Art Records from the label's General Manager Sarah Moody (Hardly Art being Sub Pop's highly acclaimed, jewel-like "sibling label"), and experience a harrowing morality tale from Ben Bridwell (Carissa's Wierd, Band of Horses) that nevertheless ends on an "up" note. As always, hosted to you by Alissa Atkins and Arwen Nicks from the Sub Pop Podcast blanketfort studio.
