Friends Who Folk – “Save Me”

It’s our third birthday! To celebrate, we invited Friends Who Folk over to QED for a very special LIVE show where they serve as both the interview and musical guests. We talk with bandmates Ned Riseley (Six Degrees of Separation on Broadway) and Rachel Wenitsky (Reductress, The Story Pirates Podcast) about “Save Me” by Aimee Mann, a song that they both absolutely love.

Rachel and Ned tell us how they met the Williamstown Theatre Festival and what led them to become partners in musical comedy. We discuss sad folk music, what makes Aimee Mann such an excellent singer, and getting music from our parents. We also share stories of annoying concertgoers!

Plus! Friends Who Folk cover “Save Me” and play two of their hilarious, original comedy songs for us. It’s quite the treat and we couldn’t imagine a better third birthday party!!!

On that note, we want to let everyone know that we’ll be taking a little break from releasing episodes. We’ll be back in January and we can’t wait for you to see what’s in store. Thanks for all the love these past three years! <3
