#24 Shlomo Franklin on bad Airbnbs and Taylor Swift
Well guys, it finally happened. I encountered a guest who appreciates the genius of TSwift as much as I do. Singer/songwriter Shlomo Franklin joins me for a lively discussion of bad/weird Airbnb experiences, going with the flow without getting murdered, why legacy acts' later work is usually not that great, and yes, Miss Americana herself.

#23 Diana DeMuth on hiking, cooking and secret swim spots
DISCLAIMER: NO SECRET SWIM SPOTS ARE REVEALED IN THIS EPISODE. There, that’s out of the way.

She and MK discuss the album’s genesis and working with producer Simone Felice, plus some misadventures of their own in wilderness survival and outdoor summertime activities.

#19 Jono Diener on misophonia
Hoo boy… this is an exciting one, guys. Jonathan “Jono” Diener of bands like The Swellers and Baggage has something very weird in common with MK: a nightmarish condition in which certain noises give you a panic attack! They discuss the ins and outs of life in misophonia, Jono’s 2019 release Life in Misophonia, and also more positive stuff like Jono’s project The Inevitables, a 22 page comic with an accompanying original soundtrack.

Easy to listen to
The subject matter branches out in nuanced and complex dialogue, but the natural conversation style MK maintains in her podcasts makes it easy to digest. Enjoyable listening and very entertaining/informative. Definitely worth your time!
This is never dull, and the host always encourages guests to talk about what really lights them up, which makes for a fun interview for everyone. Not one has been quite like the other, and sometimes the tables get flipped and the host becomes the one who answers the questions. Listen and share.
Insightful and entertaining
Love listening in to insightful people having (pleasantly) meandering conversations not just about music but topics they are passionate about.
