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.

Chrissy Shackelford (Wyatt Cenac’s Problem Areas) is on the show to talk to us about Jewel – Near You Always. April Kae (Imanigold) plays the cover, and then brings up the rest of Imanigold for a few more songs! This is a jam-packed episode!
On this *live* episode of the podcast, we talk with comedian, writer, and illustrator BRANSON REESE about the Jawbreaker song “Want” and we hear some music from our dear friend MATT COSTABILE.
On this latest LIVE episode of the show, we sit down with data journalist and illustrator Mona Chalabi (Guardian US, BBC, FiveThirtyEight) to discuss the song “No Romance” by Tirzah. Since she’s currently not seeing a therapist, Mona asks us to try and give her insight on what this song means to her. This is a first for us and we end up talking a lot about romance, whether or not it’s a necessary part of life, logic as it relates to romance, and what we’re told about love growing up. How much does love matter to Mona and what does the word even mean? She answers these questions while admitting that she is a “really really really hard person to date.”
Lorena Russi joins us in the studio to discuss the song “Stand Out” from A Goofy Movie. This is at least the third time we’ve talked about this movie on the show and Pat finally admits to never having seen it! (Get it together, Pat!) Lorena talks about growing up Columbian in Queens, how her […]
One of our favorite songwriters, Lauren Denitzio of the band Worriers, joins us to talk about one of her most beloved songs, “Still Into You” by Paramore. Listen in for a great conversation on what makes a great song, why whining about production quality is stupid, and how awesome Philly’s music scene is right now. Plus, two songs from Lauren!
Lauren Ashley Smith, head writer on The Rundown with Robin Thede, joins us on this LIVE edition of the show to talk about “Ain’t Nobody” by Rufus & Chaka Khan. We are also joined by one of our favorite musical guests, Mikki Hommel, who not only covers “Ain’t Nobody” beautifully, but she also debuts a brand-new original track and improvises a song based on suggestions from the audience. WOW.
