Volunteered to get interviewed on a podcast about music that is important to me - Number 20


Broken debris episode eighteen number twenty volunteered to get interviewed on a podcast about music that is important to me. Well this is significant in many ways first of all, I don't volunteer to do things secondly, it's personal and thirdly, I don't volunteer to do things. The way the show works is that someone picks a song from each decade they were alive in. There are no rules regarding how to pick your songs and no specific criteria just as long as there's one from each decade, you've been a life I was born in nineteen, sixty eight. So I started with a song from the sixties. Set out with a theme in mind when I picked my songs, it just sorta happened. The first son was sweet thing by Van Morrison I picked this one because it describes a little bit about how I feel about rob. My second son was Kooks by David Bowie for the nineteen seventies and this one was about parenting molly. I starting to see the pattern. The song I chose from the nineteen eighties was Peter Gabriel's don't give up I chose the song because it encompassed teenage years and I shared on the podcast how I survived those difficult years. My next song was tonight tonight by smashing Pumpkins for the nineteen nineties. It represents our move to Minneapolis, I describe what was so significant about that time next up was the two thousands and the song bloody mother fucking Astle by Martha Wainwright. This was about my desire to live in truth and my break from my family of origin. The last night choice was brave by Sara Barilla's for the twenty towns. I was knee deep in my list at this point and the song said it all with list in hand I skype with Jesse and Terry I shared a lot. We went deep we laughed and we even cried a little it was supposed to be an hour. It was not they had to split minded into to episodes. I'm a podcast or and I like to talk what can I say? It was very healing for me and fun and holy rap people were going to hear this. What have I done? I talked about my list too. So there's that this was the precursor to this project. This was the first time I really talked about my list in detail. I was the only number twenty when I volunteered for the podcast. But by the time I guess did I was a little further end but still very far from having the confidence I have now but much braver than when I started at number one and this was me fall on this was me flat open and honest? This was me learning how to do this? Sometimes bravery as being vulnerable. Episodes of broken debris are released every Tuesday and Thursday.
