Episode 4: Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, Margaret Talev and Doug Heye


With Bob on the road this week, we’re joined by two outstanding guest hosts who help us understand how the Democratic primary is consolidating after Super Tuesday—Doug Heye of CNN and The Wall Street Journal and Margaret Talev, Axios’s Politics and White House editor and CNN contributor.  

After Doug and Margaret’s Super Tuesday recap you’ll hear Bob’s interview with Colin Meloy of The Decemberists about the intersection of music and activism. Meloy and the band have for years used their platform to support various causes and candidates, as Colin did last week when announcing his support for a particular Democrat running for President. In the coming weeks we’ll talk to more musicians about balancing these competing interests, the creative and the political, in their public life.
