A podcast about songs and the meanings we give them.
What do you hear when you hear that one song? Where does it take you? What does it remind you of?
12 For A Penny is a song podcast that isn't about songs. It's about the way that songs get weighted over the years with the baggage of life experience. The way the music we love burrows under the surface of our lives and creates its own "playlist" of memories and connections. Each episode starts with a song, an album, a theme, or a topic curated by hosts and mortal enemies Yama Rahyar, Joe Van Fossen, and James Alvarez. Sometimes talking about one piece of music leads us to others. More often, it spirals into a discussion of embarrassing memories, near fistfights or outright sobbing, psychoanalysis of our most beloved and hated artists and albums, and of each other.
Have a listen, then hit us up to join the conversation one of these days. Because what good is listening to dudes rant about music if you can't butt in.
