The Mountain Goats songs contain some literary masterpieces, this podcast is a deep dive into the MGs with John Darnielle and Night Vale’s Joseph Fink. This show is awesome and I can’t wait to hear the backstory of some of my favorite songs, fingers crossed that season 3 will be dedicated to “Best the Champ”. Darneille is a genius songwriter and author and he has done great work on women’s rights, and progressive causes, while this show is all about art his progressive work is an important part of my love for the band. I’m so glad I discovered this show and am digging into the archives now - great stuff!
