Must-Hear Mu­sic Pod­casts

Exclaim! - - SHOTS - ALEX HUD­SON

Cana­dian in­die rock­ers Said the Whale just launched their own pod­cast called De­moitis, fea­tur­ing guests like Arkells, Mother Mother and Tokyo Po­lice Club. Here are some other must­hear pod­casts for mu­sic fans.

SONG EXPLODER

Each episode of Song Exploder fea­tures a big-name guest break­ing down how they wrote a song. It’s an in­ti­mate glimpse into the cre­ative process, in­volv­ing demos, stems and per­sonal sto­ries. Check out the bizarre, fas­ci­nat­ing episode with Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo.

TURNED OUT A PUNK

On each episode of this pro­lific pod­cast, host Damian Abra­ham (of Fucked Up) talks to a guest about how punk changed their life. Guests have in­cluded Jack Black, Jim Cuddy and David Cross, show­ing just how far punk’s in­flu­ence has per­me­ated.

ALL SONGS CON­SID­ERED

NPR’s All Songs Con­sid­ered of­fers mixes of new mu­sic and in-depth in­ter­views with big stars. Whether geek­ing out about ana­logue record­ing with MBV’s Kevin Shields or go­ing on a trip down mem­ory lane with R.E.M., this show ex­udes mu­sic ner­dom in the best way.

U TALKIN’ U2 TO ME?

Hosted by Adam Scott ( Parks and Recre­ation) and Scott Auk­er­man ( Com­edy

Bang! Bang!), this trib­ute to U2 is as much im­prov com­edy as it is mu­sic. Af­ter dis­cussing ev­ery U2 al­bum in the first sea­son (and get­ting the band as guests), the hosts launched the spinoff R U Talkin’ R.E.M. RE: ME?

SNOOP DOGG’S GGN POD­CAST

Snoop Dogg was born to be a pod­cast host. He in­ter­views plenty of big-name rap­pers (A$AP Rocky, Rae Srem­murd) and ac­tors (Seth Ro­gen, Kathy Bates), but no mat­ter who the guest is, the true high­light of this pod­cast is Snoop’s perma-baked stoner dude per­sona.
