In Episode 124, Keith, Justin, and Darcy sit down for a conversation with poet/folk singer Bradley Hathaway. The guys discuss the evolution of Bradley’s poetry over the years, and how taking risks in art is essential. We talk about the divide that we often construct between the sacred and the secular, and how those lines are not as clear-cut as we like to think. Bradley also talks about his personal relationship with his art, how he handles critics, and details how he willingly gave up a job that he loved in order to stay true to his creative longing. The crew discusses Bradley’s new album, Flesh Eater, and the controversy that it stirred up (especially in the Christian world). The guys also discuss whether the music industry is dead, and how to support artists and the work that they create. We had an absolute blast with this interview, and Darcy is a huge fanboy, so be sure to listen in! In the beginning, the guys discuss Keith’s nighttime coffee habits and Korean food eating sprees, as well as how podcasting has affected our off-air discussions as well. In the end, we wrap up the show by giving our final thoughts on the conversation. As always, be sure to comment, rate, and subscribe to the podcast. Let us know what you think!
