In this episode we explore the life changing power of indie folks songs. First, singer songwriter Kevin Morby expounds on how the raw beauty of The Mountain Goats made making folk music seem both accessible and punk. Then Margaret Glaspy explains how Vic Chestnutt’s unflinching take on life and and Elliot Smith’s use of metaphor influence her as a writer.
