Shaggy art conversations

It is very valuable to hear good artists talking about art to near-excess, stretching out, finding different angles on the same subject. I really like how they let these conversations go basically anywhere. That freedom lets them get down to some truly interesting and unexpected stuff. And the songs are great.

I used to listen to the Mountain Goats

I came into this as a fan of the Mountain Goats. I can’t say that I am anymore. It will be hard for me to separate JD’s ego from his work now.
Never meet your heroes—and in this case the hero wouldn’t give you the time of day.

2 stars for good hosting and a great concept.
