The Inaugural Secret Society Podcast: An Interview With Jean Rohe

Over at Secret Society, Darcy Argue has begun podcasting with an interview with the musician Jean Rohe and will be interviewing other musicians in the future.

As promised, oh so long ago, the inaugural podcast is finally here. It features my interview with Jean Rohe, singer and recent New School graduate. (You may recall her graduation speech [the one that took on McCain at the New School Graduation]… ).

Of course, we talk about the New School incident and its aftermath, but we — eventually, I promise! — also get into Jean’s musical background, influences, and current activities. We listen to and talk about two songs from her current band’s book — “Hombre Triste,” her adaptation of a tune originally by Myk Freedman, and an original, “What Will We Tell Our Children?” — you can download the complete versions of those songs below. Jean also brought some recordings of music that has influenced her, and we chat about that as well.
