A Deep Dive Into Joy Division

RBP's Hoskyns & Pringle and author Jon Savage have created a podcast about the history and legacy of Joy Division that I found both enlightening and entertaining. Their discussion is not without humor, despite the band's tragic denouement, and Savage brings acute insight to the group's evolution (which he witnessed first-hand) and its lasting legacy. This was my first RBP podcast and I certainly will tune in for more.

BIG ups

Has slowly turned into a can't miss, note especially the Joy Div episode with Jon Savage, whose book earns the word definitive even though there's not such thing. Hearing all the great JD records again with new ears. TR

A well-informed music podcast

Mark and Barney are engaging and well-informed hosts. I enjoyed their back-and-forth about the annals of rock’s history, particularly their thoughts on Radiohead. Their distinct opinions provide a balanced take on each artist. Highly recommend for all music fans, past and present.
