Episode 003: Whiplash08/01/2017 Duração: 54min
This episode is inspired by the film Whiplash - the fictional story of a student at a New York music conservatory who is driven to the brink of insanity by his teacher in the pursuit of perfection. The movie stars Miles Teller as Andrew, as the student and JK Simmons as Fletcher his brutal and bullying professor, it came out in 2014, and was written and directed by Damien Chazelle. I loved this movie. On one level it’s simply a great story full of drama, tension and good music but what really struck me was the central question that it attempts to address, a question that we are very interested in at the Hogtown Music Podcast.

Episode 001: Hogtown Podcast Intro30/12/2016 Duração: 42min
In it we dive headlong into all things music, into the present, into history, into favorite bands and songs. But this podcast is also a little different – we try to go a bit deeper than a simple appreciation – we try to deconstruct how good musicians turned into great musicians, how they made the leap into the elite, how classic albums came to be, how legendary performances unfolded – we try to understand how the pinnacles of greatness were reached. And as mere mortals we try to figure out how to do it just a little better ourselves. This podcast is for musicians and music lovers.
