Hey there-

First of all, thanks for listening to the show and considering supporting it.  Let me tell you how the whole thing came to be...

Traveling half the year to play music, I've spent a lot of time behind the wheel of a van.  There's only so much music a person can listen to before their ears start to bleed- so I began listening to podcasts.  As I fell in love with the medium, I kept searching for a particular program that I thought *surely* must exist: simple, candid conversations between working songwriters.  I was looking for the type of conversation I've had countless times in the back of a Sprinter, in the wings of a theater, and behind the rubber curtains of a motel room. But that show was nowhere to be found.  "There's a conversation that's missing here," I thought, "How come no one is having it?" 

So I decided to start it myself.

The concept for the show is simple.  Every month, I record a single conversation with a songwriter that I admire.  That conversation is buttressed with a thumbnail biography, spoken essays, and relevant poetry to put their work into context.  Generally, I set up the interviews by just texting the guest and gauging their interest- no publicists, no managers, no go-betweens.  

I've always intended TWS for two distinct audiences.  First, the show is for passionate music listeners who want insight into their favorite writer's life and craft.  Second, it's for the community of songwriters ourselves; a water-cooler that we can gather around once a month and hear the story of one of our fellow writers.

If you dig TWS and a modest monthly subscription is a pinch you won't feel, thank you for considering supporting the show.
