Customer Reviews

I'm enjoying this!

Two guys, sometimes joined by guest hosts with varying degrees of Waits-ian knowledge/enthusiasm, go into deep dives of Tom Waits's discography, song by song, in the order in which they were released. Each episode is roughly 16 minutes or so.

I also enjoy their "interval tracks" which are used to further discuss a particular Waits track for that episode. It's helped me discover some amazing new (to me) songs.

As for the reviewer who would rather leave deciphering TW's lyrics to Americans because two British musicians don't know what the RTD is (something I'm pretty sure most Americans don't know either)... that's fine, but isn't one of the joys of being a fan seeing/hearing someone else's discovery of something which already makes you happy? I find their non-American perspective helpful in getting me to listen to each song in a new way.

Like a DVD commentary track -- but for songs

Although I'm not as seasoned a Tom Waits fan as many are, I thoroughly enjoy the analysis of lyrics I might have otherwise let slide by me, the guest voices bringing in additional perspectives, and (as a detail-oriented organizer) the sheer pleasure of having a podcast go through one interesting subject chronologically.
This podcast is very well produced, and episodes are the perfect length. A particular favorite of mine was the "Gun Street Girl" episode with Phoebe Judge and Lauren Spore from Criminal discussing murder ballads in general, as well as digging into some of the mysteries of that particular Waits song.

Great show

I'm obsessed with Tom Waits so a song by song discussion is tailor made for me. Sometimes these guys go a little overboard with their analysis of the lyrics but overall an enjoyable listen.
