    Chris Thile is on American Songwriter's Basic Folk podcast to talk with host Cindy Howes about his new solo album, Laysongs. "How beautiful and intoxicating finding a little bit of truth can be," he says. "We start to consider it a threat to that truth that we've discovered for ourselves, a threat to the good that we perceive it doing for ourselves when someone else doesn't accept that as true. And I think that's giving all of us a whole lot of trouble right now, on the internet and everywhere else." You can hear their conversation here.
