Welcome to episode 148 of Sweetman Podcast with support from our sponsors – T Leaf T, Yeastie Boys and La Petite Chocolat.
Here’s something a little different for the podcast. A conversation with legendary singer, songwriter, protester, activist and icon Joan Baez.
Now, although this is the first-time broadcasting this – it is not a brand new conversation. It was recorded in 2015. I had seen a Joan Baez concert and the promoter reached out for me to interview her following that review. So ahead of seeing the show again I had this chance to talk to Baez.
I wrote it up but recently I found the tape. And figured it was worth sharing.
Consider this your bonus summer holiday content – as this episode of the podcast is shorter than usual. And though my findings from this interview were written up I had never previously shared the actual recording.
My hope is that you enjoy this – even though it’s a different type of recording. You can hear us clearly enough and though it was based around a tour we did talk through many aspects of Baez’s life and career.
It was a great thrill, of course, to talk to Baez. I’m a huge fan of her music. And she’s an important figure in pop culture.
