Nate sits down with another one of his musical superhero friends/collaborators for a deep exploration of musical process and personal meaning. Since they are good friends they mostly skip the basics of Joe’s career and start by taking apart some of Joe’s songs - and from there go into a free form discussion of his life experience, including concepts such as mental illness and healing, family dynamics, loss, connection, sentimentality, integrity, and a fair amount of musical/lyrical mechanics too!
