    In the series premiere, we meet our narrator, Terrance Woodridge, who brings us a tale he’s chased down: the story of Sugar Maple, the guitar of legend with a timeless sound that's passed from hand to hand over the years.
    In this episode, we go back to 1951 and hear the story of "Sweet Licks" Bobby Lindro, an orphan from the farmlands outside Chicago. When his brand new Telecaster’s neck is destroyed, he's sure nothing can replace it, until his Aunt procures mysterious wood that seems to make Bobby's guitar truly sing, and gives Bobby dreams that carry him places he never meant to go.

    Eric Clapton - Pilgrim (w/ Mark Richardson)

    Eric Clapton - Pilgrim (w/ Mark Richardson)

    In the gripping Late Era season finale, the core trio is joined by music critic Mark Richardson (@MarkRichardson) to discuss the polarizing, blockbuster work of Eric Clapton in the 1990s. It was a time when his MTV Unplugged set launched him to new commercial heights, and his mysterious electronic project T.D.F. propelled him into strange creative depths. The focus of our discussion is 1998’s Pilgrim, his futuristic, adult contemporary attempt to make the “saddest album ever written.” Did he succeed? Is he even a good guitar player? Is there life beyond financial stability? All your questions will be answered in this emotional, high-energy conversation—a must-listen for Slowhand-haters and acolytes the world over.

    Kate Bush - Aerial (w/ Jude Rogers)

    Kate Bush - Aerial (w/ Jude Rogers)

    In 2005, the English art-rock legend Kate Bush returned after a hiatus that spanned more than a decade to release Aerial, one of her most ambitious and mystifying albums. Joined by critic and journalist Jude Rogers (@juderogers), the Late Era trio discusses this magnificent double album: a conceptual opus that incorporates birdsong, a recitation of the digits of pi, and tributes to Elvis Presley and Kate Bush’s son (and frequent collaborator) Albert, aka Bertie. During the conversation, we explore the musical settings of Kate Bush’s work as well as the lyrical complexities, and we discuss her journey toward making this album and her enduring influence in the 21st century. Plus, our recurring Financial Corner reaches a surprising climax. Make a deal with pod and join us for another Late Era milestone.

    Jay-Z - Magna Carta Holy Grail (w/ Open Mike Eagle)

    Jay-Z - Magna Carta Holy Grail (w/ Open Mike Eagle)

    Jay-Z in the 2010s and beyond embodies the sort of imperial excess we’ve generally associated with rock and capital-P Pop musicians on this podcast so far. He’d already ascended the highest mountains of success. The budgets were virtually unlimited, and the hits were still coming. But somewhere along the way, he lost touch with the essential spark of his artistry. Rapper, comedian, and podcast mogul Open Mike Eagle (@Mike_Eagle) joins us for a frank discussion of Magna Carta Holy Grail—the moment when Jay’s world-conquering persona tipped closest to self-parody—as well as the complications of late-era rap albums more generally.

    Loretta Lynn - Van Lear Rose (w/ Allison Hussey)

    Loretta Lynn - Van Lear Rose (w/ Allison Hussey)

    In 2004, Loretta Lynn collaborated with Jack White for Van Lear Rose, a surprise critical and commercial comeback that helped secure the country icon’s legacy in the 21st century. Putting a focus on her gifts as a songwriter and backed by the kind of rootsy, stripped-back blues-rock that the White Stripes made their name on, it is a singular and strange moment in Lynn’s remarkable catalog. Joined by music journalist Allison Hussey (@allisonhussey), the Late Era trio discusses the pros and cons of the young producer/late-era artist team-up and dives into this album’s many mysteries.

Late Era-pparent to Welcome to Chicago

Dry humor, solid impressions, and surprisingly insightful financial advice. I think Wigmans is actually a good idea…

Hacks

You hacks really missed the mark with your pathetic review of Van Morrison’s new album. Don’t project your politics on the music, you can’t read minds.
