The Sound of Young America: The Legacy Collection is an effort to highlight some of the older shows in our vast audio archive. We were pretty much podcasting before anyone actually listened to podcasts, so I'm guessing you haven't heard these shows.
Our first guest on this show, which bears the theme "Storytellers," is Colin Meloy of The Decemberists. Jordan tells me they've got a major deal now, we interviewed Colin not long after their first record was released. We knew him when! And he didn't seem to like us too much!
Also: Harvey Pekar is the creator of the amazing comic "American Splendor." The comic tackles stories from Pekar's life as an ordinary guy in Cleveland, Ohio. It's one of my favorite things ever.
