Great Podcast and Highly Recommended

I am a big fan of Husker Du and had the opportunity to see them live in the 80’s and subsequently saw Sugar and Bob Mould in his various bands since then. I also just completed Bob Mould’s book.

This podcast was great, starting with the beginning of the band and going up to the present day. It is linked with the release of a new catalog of old songs that were apparently only released when Grant Hart gave the go-ahead.

If you are interested in their music in any capacity I highly recommend listening to this podcast.
