I heard about the Song Exploder podcast while on a weekend show run this week, and started listening on Monday morning to it. In every episode, various artists break down how and why they wrote a specific song, and the story behind it. They have artists as varied as Metallica to Norah Jones interviewed, and I found myself completely engrossed by hearing how each artist thought about building a song.
If you’re a producer, musician, or songwriter, this is an absolute must-listen. I learned more about producing by listening to this than I have in the last 3 years of reading on the topic. Check it out here: http://songexploder.net/
