ABOUT THE PODCAST

Do you have that one album you can listen to on repeat without it ever growing old? Have you ever found yourself listening to a song and, upon hearing one little thing that reminded you of something else, embarked on a two hour long Google spiral? Are you just a little curious about what makes the music you love the music you love? Join the club.

Every album has a story. Every lyric, every guitar solo, every production credit has a meaning. We believe that there is still space for analog in a digital world, that there’s something special about lying on the floor listening to your favorite LP. The music of the Boomers and Gen X isn’t reserved exclusively for our parents. As millennials, we are witnessing the continuation of our greater musical story; we are seeing the passing of the torch. For us, music from generations past has evolved beyond the point of just something that feels good to listen to; it has become a rich history to devour. Through this podcast, Carly and Carrie will be the ones carrying it for those who came before, because as those who are wiser than us have said: “You have to know where you came from to know where you’re going.”

ABOUT THE HOSTS

CARLY JORDAN

IMG_7636

Carly is an actor, singer, and bass guitarist. Music was a constant influence in her life from an early age: when she was in preschool, her teacher told her mother one day that she had been talking at length to some kids on the playground about the Eagles, their discography, and how Don Henley was her favorite drummer while the others could only stare back at her, confused. Her musical tastes have been confounding young and old alike ever since. Carly holds a BA in Theatre Arts from the Conservatory of Performing Arts at Point Park University and is a proud member of Actors’ Equity Association. Carly lives, works, and plays in New York, where she is forever on a quest to find an original vinyl pressing of The City’s Now That Everything’s Been Said. (If anyone out there has any leads, hit her up.)

CARRIE COUROGEN

Processed with VSCO with ka1 preset

Carrie is a writer and creative producer at Condé Nast in New York. As a kid, she begged her parents to take her to Woodstock ‘99. It was not until years later that she understood that, no, it was not the same as ‘69, and why they adamantly refused. Her writing—which often focuses on the intersection of feminism and pop culture, even though she more often feels like this screengrab of Diane Keaton in Reds—has been featured in print and online in outlets like Vanity Fair, PAPER, Pitchfork, NPR, and many more, and she is currently writing a book about Elaine May for St. Martin’s Press. She has done more, but this is enough. // carriecourogen.com // @carriecourogen
