This Song: Hrishikesh Hirway // Thao Nguyen

For the last episode of 2018, This Song decided to celebrate some exciting changes at one of our favorite music podcasts. Starting in 2019, Song Exploder host, creator, and producer Hrisikesh Hirway will hand over hosting duties to Thao Nguyen of Thao and the Getdown  Staydown.

Listen as Hrishikesh Hirway tells us how listening to Asha Bhosle’s “Yeh Hai Reshmi Zulfon Ka Andhera” as a young child helped open up a well of emotion that continues to inspire him to this day. Then we hear how Lucinda Williams helped Thao Nguyen understand the power of “the good hurt.”

Have a Happy New Year!
