    In the newest episode of the Life In General Podcast we discuss the musical career of the band Pink Floyd.

We also dive into the life of Syd Barrett and the mental illness that drove him away from the band he helped create after an album and a half, and the relationship (or lack thereof) between Roger Waters and David Gilmour.

    In the 106th episode of the Life In General Podcast we take a look at the state of the current music industry. With the 62nd edition of the Grammy Awards right around the corner, we discuss how record companies influence what is “popular” and distort what music is available to mainstream music fans. We also talk about a conspiracy theory that music executives in the very early 90’s were heavily invested in the private prison industry, and benefited financially from the promotion of criminal activity through rap music.

    Looking Back at Year Three of LIG

    In the 105th episode of the Life In General Podcast we pull back the curtain a little bit to take a look back at year three of the podcast. We discuss some of the new things we tried with the show (and what did and didn’t work), some of our favorite episodes form 2019, how music was an overwhelming topic last year (possibly because we were tired of talking about politics), and where we would like the show to go in 2020.
