    LGM Podcast: The Farm Crisis

    LGM Podcast: The Farm Crisis

    For our latest podcast, we talked to Pamela Riney-Kehrberg from Iowa State University about her recent book When a Dream Dies: Agriculture, Iowa, and the Farm Crisis of the 1980s. This was a wide-ranging conversation that explored, among other things, the connections between the farm crisis and the manufacturing crisis of the same time, the culture of individualism among farmers that made it very difficult for them to accept help, how terrible the Carter administration was for both farmers and workers, and how this influenced the growth of far-right politics that have transformed Iowa over the past decade. And of course we also talked about the details of the farm crisis, why it happened, and whether it ever really ended (spoiler alert: it did not). It’s a great book and you should read it.

    LGM Podcast: Elizabeth Nelson Presents…The Interrogator

    LGM Podcast: Elizabeth Nelson Presents…The Interrogator

    Rob and I were excited to talk to Elizabeth about the fantastic new Paranoid Style album The Interrogator. And Anna Wintour’s attack on Pitchfork, and playing live in Athens later this month, and Doug Yule, and no-money-in-this-deal professions, and stuff like that there.







    With the addition of Peter Holsapple the new album is the best musical framing for Elizabeth’s always top-tier songs yet. But don’t take my word for it! Ken Tucker:









    The Washington D.C.-based band is led by Elizabeth Nelson, who is also a published music critic. It shows — the music is packed with wordplay, jokes and an undercurrent of serious dread….The signature sound of The Paranoid Style is the voice of songwriter Elizabeth Nelson – a sure, firm tone clearly enunciating the cascade of words that fill out every lyric. Most often half-sung, half-spoken, Nelson’s declarative sentences reveal themselves to be artfully composed verse packed with wordplay, jokes and an undercurrent of serious dread…This is The Paranoid Style’s most tuneful album to date, at least in part because of its new lead guitarist, Peter Holsapple, co-founder of the great pop rock band The dB’s. Nelson, Holsapple and the rest of the band, including Nelson’s guitarist husband Timothy Bracy, hit a peak of pleasure with the guitar solo in the middle of a song called “The Ballad Of Pertinent Information.”









    Michael Toland:









    The Interrogator sounds like manna from heaven for a certain type of rock & roll fan – specifically those that prefer their riffs ‘n’ grooves to be accompanied by a barrage of smart, pointed, funny lyrics. Unsurprisingly for a writer by trade, Nelson clearly loves words, and has the perfect conversational singing style with which to deliver them. “Are You Loathsome Tonight” and “I Love the Sound of Structured Class” combine sociopolitical wordplay with nods to rock history, ribbing Elvis Presley and Nick Lowe while skewering more modern, less musical concerns.









    Joseph Neff:









    Nelson’s word gush in The Paranoid Style has been compared to John Darnielle, a similarity that hovers around the fringes of The Interrogator but really comes into focus in the record’s finale “The Findings” (interestingly, it’s the only co-write on the record, the credit shared with Nicky Beer). Deepening the Darnielle connection, “The Findings” moves at a slower pace than the up-tempos and middles that dominate the album as it bustles forward.







    Yes, The Paranoid Style is a band. Along with Nelson and new addition Holsapple, the lineup finds Timothy Bracy (Nelson’s husband) on guitar, William Corrin on bass, Jon Langmead on drums, and William Matheny on guitar and keyboards, plus assistance from Matt Douglas, Lisa Walker, and Will Rigby in unspecified roles (there is a smattering of horns and additional keyboards in a few tracks, and even a little violin).







    But mostly, The Interrogator is lean guitar rock, with those faster tempos brimming with energy that reinforces The Paranoid Style...

    LGM Podcast: The Warner Brothers

    For the latest LGM podcast Erik and I had the opportunity to sit down with Chris Yogerst, author of the Warner Brothers, a new history of the Warner family and of the studio that they created. We cover a lot of ground, including the founding and early history of the studio, the nature of the relationship between the film business and technology, and the relevance of the modern streaming industry for film studies. We end with a few words about the legacy of John Wayne.

Great progressive podcast

Great discussions on different types of domestic politics and foreign policy topics from a liberal perspective.

The Lev ,

Excellent

Topical politics are not usually what I want from a podcast but I have really been enjoying this show. Great conversations and analysis plus regular episodes on subjects other than topical politics. Loved the one on Goodfellas!

Marblesoup ,

Not informative

I’ll be blunt. I am right if center. The only purpose of this podcast from the episodes I have listened to (I’ve heard 6-7 episodes), would be to push left wing propaganda in the areas this podcast addresses. The men are weak left-leaning intellectual types. They seem to have no self-earned world experience. They never have any good productive ideas. This podcast only produces white noise.
