    Listen: Rhiannon Giddens Talks With 'Broken Record' Podcast

    "I write from a cultural point of view, from other people's point of view," Rhiannon Giddens tells Bruce Headlam on the latest episode of the Broken Record podcast, "trying to highlight black and mostly female voices that I feel like need to be highlighted. And a lot of times they come through as real spiritual kind of events." She also talks with Headlam about her new album with Francesco Turrisi, They're Calling Me Home, which features mostly old-time songs she didn't write but which the two expats found themselves drawn to by during the COVID-19 lockdown in Ireland.

    David Byrne talks with hip-hop artist Open Mike Eagle on Fuse, a podcast from Bomb magazine. "Your music has been in my life for a very long time," Eagle says. "One of my earliest musical memories, when I was like five or six years old ... I think it’s like the second song I ever remember hearing was 'Burning Down the House' ... And, you know, 'Once in a Lifetime' is literally one of my favorite songs ever. Like if I were to make an objective top ten list, that song would be on there." You can hear their conversation here.
