Episode details

We begin by discussing the cynical nihilism of the post 9-11 period… and then segway into a conversation about the Boston indie music scene in the late 2000s. How did the aftermath of 9-11 inform local music scenes? Why was it such a special time in Boston? What have social media and a consolidating media atmosphere done to local music?
