Singer, songwriter, activist, and all-around fun human Nellie McKay joins us this month in the first of our three episode run recorded in NYC! We had a blast talking about her musical process and stylistic evolution, our pets, the Poconos, David Byrne, and life in general. We also improvised and wrote some brand new music together. Check out all of Nellie's music and catch her live if you can!
