Music Interview podcast about songwriting featuring Jim Adkins (from Jimmy Eat World) and guests.
Frank Turner - EP19
Frank and Jim chat away through the English dusk about punk rock, imaginary listeners projecting their lives onto musicians and the universality of dressing rooms with no waste basket.
Ken Andrews (Failure) - EP18
Ken and Jim get nerd rapping about the DAW writing vs analog realm writing, the perils of instrument switching mid-song and lyric writing tips to keep you from getting psyched out.
Bob Nanna (Braid, Hey Mercedes) - EP 17
Jim and Bob talk about art vs content, creative restrictions on purpose and having stage hands load in a bunch of tv’s as props for your dude-with-a-guitar set.
William Ryan Key (Yellowcard) - EP16
New friend Ryan and Jim talk about all the places one receives an education in music ... institutions and bus lounge interventions. Huh ... Institutions and Interventions kind of sounds like a good name for an album. Dibs.
Joey Burns (Calexico) - EP15
Jim and a recently Boisien Joey Burns talk about remote collaboration, racing train noise to get takes in and the choice to approach writing with ensemble feels in mind.
Bethany Cosentino (Best Coast) - EP14
Bethany and Jim get deep on the psychology of control vs letting go, coming to acceptance with imaginary audience reactions and the real, real, real.

It’s great to hear from so many different songwriters and how they go through their creative process and the struggles they face in doing so. After listening, I’ve never been more inspired to write my own songs. Every new episode just creates another spark of creativity! I’m also loving the Fender guitar intros. What a great way to start each episode.
Such an amazing podcast for every creative soul out there!
This podcast is helping me so much with my creative process ✨Listening to those guys (can’t wait to hear some girls too 😉) talk about how it’s made, and realizing that we all go through the same doubts, the same kind of blockage, it’s such a relief. Also getting to peek through the creative process of those amazing creative minds, man! The geeky studio and tools conversations, witch I must admit I only understand a small portion of, is really interesting! I know Jim tries to régenter the conversation sometimes, but really, it’s teaching me a lot! And just for Jim’s intro with the Fender guitars thing you should listen 😂
