Welcome back to our new “Best of Austin” series!
Over the next few weeks we’ll be putting the spotlight on everything music, culture, family and food related, as those are four major areas of focus in our lives. Whether you’re visiting or a long-time local, we hope you’ll find it useful and/or interesting.
So let’s start with culture by way of music and entertainment. We want to know: do you listen to podcasts? We do, and think they are awesome!
Podcasts are little treasure troves of entertainment and information, packaged into neat little slices that you can fit anywhere in your life: driving your car, chopping vegetables, folding laundry, at your desk at work. When it comes down to it, you are listening to a conversation–something we miss out on these days due to texting and emails.
Luckily, here in Austin we have a variety of amazing podcasts to choose from, from music to comedy to technology to culture. Let’s start with our personal favorite: music!
“This Song” on Austin’s KUTX. This podcast is amazing–it asks artists about the song that changed them. You get to peek inside their minds! It’s all about music, creativity, and inspiration.
Statesman Shots Part of the Austin Statesman, this culture podcast has its finger on the pulse of Austin. All the movers and shakers who make Austin what it is stop by here for a chat with the affable and charming Omar Gallaga and Tolly Moseley. In fact, our very own founder & drummer, Andra, was a guest with Tolly and Omar and had a blast! Take a listen here.
