That’s How I Remember It is a podcast that examines the connection between memory and creativity. Each episode will feature a discussion between Craig Finn and one creator — a musician, author, filmmaker, etc. — about the role that memory plays in their art. These conversations will reveal the different ways each creator synthesizes their remembered life experiences to tell stories about themselves and the world we live in. This podcast is not a nostalgia trip, but rather an exciting conversation about storytelling, process, and the desire to create art that reflects the world the artist has experienced. That’s How I Remember It is co-produced and distributed by Talkhouse.

    Jason Isbell is my guest on the final episode of Season 3 of That’s How I Remember It. Jason is, of course, one of the great songwriters of our time. His newest record with his band The 400 Unit is 2023’s Weathervanes. It continues an incredible and probably unrivaled streak of great records in this past decade. We talked about that as well as Patterson Hood’s songs, Pentecostal band chaos, sequencing for vinyl, David Gilmour and Paul Kossoff, great backstage graffiti, whether Tool was influenced by The Grifters and, of course, Ybor City. Big thanks to Jason for joining us. Thanks to you for listening to Season 3. We will be back for more, stay tuned!

Josh is a fascinating guest and I enjoyed it immensely. Listen and subscribe!

    Jay Sweet is my guest on this episode of That’s How I Remember It. Jay has done a lot of things but is best known as the force behind the Newport Folk Festival. I have been at Newport for the past two years and have been blown away by the music and the community. Jay and his staff are in the business of making memories at Newport. We talked about that special vibe as well as Lewis Carrol, his first Grateful Dead show, REM at Radio City Music Hall as a youth, Lana Del Rey, and THS at Newport 23. Great talk.

We talked about all of that as well as the influence of seeing The Clash in 1979, losing memory to excess, telling the truth, going through a Crusades phase, and so much more.
