    Tracie Potochnik on 'The Ballad of Harvey the Elf'

This episode also includes excerpts from Tracie's conversations with her delightful parents, Ed and Judy Potochnik.
    There were some audio problems during my interview with Tracie, which I didn't catch until after it was too late to rerecord. I apologize for the resulting audio quality of this episode (but I think it's still fun to listen to, and I hope you do too!).
    You can hear the song in full, and download it for free, if desired, at https://cardboardox.bandcamp.com/track/the-ballad-of-harvey-the-elf .

Love It

Last night, I had the chance to sit down with Jacob for an upcoming episode. This is a wonderful podcast and Jacob's sense of humor and candor really make it something special.

Listen to this today!

Great podcast, if you like songs or storytelling. I love hearing the process and story behind the music, great skills at interviewing as well.

Really fascinating and helpful

I came to "Tell Me About Your Song" via "Song Exploder," and I'm really pleased that I did.

I'm a music fan and aspiring songwriter, so this podcast really floats my boat. It gives some really interesting insight into quite diverse processes of the chosen songwriters. The host, Jacob Haller, is a talented songwriter himself, and his intelligent and profound questions are very often what I'd ask myself. I highly recommend this to music enthusiasts and/or songwriters.
