    Nina Ryser

    This episode features Nina Ryser, one third of art-punk trio Palberta and a prolific solo artist. Our short but sweet conversation includes Nina's earliest memories of recording diary-like cassettes at age 8, the making of Palberta's new album at Paul Reubens' family home, and finally gets to the bottom of their band name. Spoiler alert: It has nothing to do with Alberta.
