Episode 150: Jenny Lewis


For our 150th podcast we were lucky enough to get an impromptu visit from Jenny Lewis who discussed her transition from child actress to Rilo Kiley frontwoman and, now, solo superstar. Along the way we talked about the way she’s managed to retain creative control throughout her career, why her passion for creativity keeps her out of the metaphorical quicksand and how seeing a dead fish in a koi pond inspired her to tell her boyfriend that she loved him for the first time. We also discuss her experiences on Saddle Creek Records, her latest solo album The Voyager and get some tips on how to make the perfect smoothie if you ever find yourself staying at Conor Oberst’s apartment. We couldn’t think of a better guest to ring in #150.
